It was something I read sometime ago. Thought that this is very interesting. He seems to be a good guy.
It just came back to my mind when I saw you wearing a Darkthrone Shirt on the Coldworker Site...
i am always very interested in the questions people are asking here..
so why were this two outstanding answers not being answered within the last days? I mean there are still 2 unanswered questions left since some days while others have been answered...
strange question i know, but i just want to hear something since nasum.com is the site i am checking almost everyday..;)
Since I myself is a very openminded listener and listen to all kinds of music (of course including grindcore and Nasum), it would be interesting to know whether you listen to any music that is not metal/punk/grind?
How are you doing (I don't know you, but it's something I just ask everytime I talk to someone)?
I'd like to ask you a couple of things about the sound you guys produced on 'Shift' and 'Helvete'. I ask this because I'm very interested in recording techniques and sound, and of course music.
The first thing I wanted to ask you was how did you manage to get the raw, roaring sound of the guitars? Effects, pedals, amplifiers, etc...?
The second thing was at the beginning of the songs Fight Terror With Terror, and some other (I can't remember, heh), there is this weird sound generated. I can't describe it, but you'll know what I mean. Were that samples or guitars, or...?
The final thing I wanted to ask is that you used a certain cymbal on some songs. The only thing that pops up in my mind is Living Next Door to Malice. There are some other songs, a whole bunch even. Only the ones on Helvete pops up. Anyways, you used a certain cymbal that made a China-like sound while you blasted. You used that cymbal to mark certain notes on guitar, or that's how it seemed to me. I hope you know what I mean. So the question is, what cymbal was that?
Bye, take care.
Sorry for your loss, as it was one to many.

2. Is it the feedback during the drum introduction you are thinking about?
3. That was a China cymbal! / Anders
I finally started to get back into drumming again,
and I wanted to ask if you for a tip or something.
Have you found it easier to play blastbeats open handed or close hand?
P.S - My friend and I are planning to do some type of Nasum Tribute, I was going to choose about 30 songs ranging from any EP, CD, Demo tape or what not you have made. I'll give you a shout when it's complete =).
I would say that I guess I play "closed" by default, but sometimes I try to work of the bounce and if you master that technique I think the blasts can be both solid and hard.
But in the end, any way that works is fine as long as you don't hurt yourself or get tired fast etc. / Anders
I was checking out a few Nasum videos on youtube.com,
and I found one of you guys playing at Hultsfred.
I figured out most of the songs, since the sound was intense, and then a new singer came on-stage for "Think". Was that Rickard?
Jag tänker inte ranka mina kollegor. / Anders
if yes how can we hear?
Keep it up. / Anders
if yes where can we find it
for the bass guitar you used 1 or 2 channels in the recording studio?
do you like martial arts?
As for the bass guitar I don't quite understand the question, but if you're wondering if we tracked the bass twice that only happened on the "Domedagen" demo. Of course in some parts (like breaks and such) the bass is overdubbed, but mainly it's just one bass track. It's possible Mieszko used a number of mikes tracking the bass on several channels to mix it together, I can't remember. / Anders
I had a few questions I was wanting to ask;
1. Had you ever planned on having the cover for "Helvete" on a T-shirt? I thought it was a really unique looking picture.
2. I have boughten most of the Nasum shirts for sale on Relapse.com, and I must say the new "Wrath" design is fucking WICKED.
Was that a new design Relapse or you created?
2. No, that's the work of Orion at Relapse. I made some suggestions for changes that he incorporated (mainly how the logo was displayed in the design). I'm anxious to see how it looks for real (if you have missed it - here's a link. / Anders
Satt och funderade på varför det inte gjorts några kepsar med nasumrelaterade tryck.?
En vanlig svart keps med den vita nasumlogon, eller ännu bättre "in memory of Mieszko"- logon med årtal som på t-shirten du lät trycka. Det känns fortfarande bra att jag hann komma över den sista av dem.
Anyway, en keps skulle sitta fint på min snart snaggade skalle.
Ha det fint!
why you don't use trigger to the bass drum so we can hear it better?
id just like to say that all the things you have done in nasum along with all the others (of course) have had a huge influence on me!
i wondered if you knew how i could find a good grind drummer there seems to be a very big lack of them in the uk!
also im loveing the coldworker stuff its quite sick!
hope to see you guys here soon
I got my merch-stuff from Sweden to Germany within 3 days. Your "service" is incredibly fast, the shirts and the sweater look great!
I am collecting band-shirts. How many do you have?
What's your favourite one from another band and what's your fave from Nasum?
Tack and greetings,
Ha det fint
