Vad gillar du bandlistorna till de svenska festivalerna så här långt? Vad ser du mest framemot i sommar, förutom turnén med Coldworker då?
Reading your answer about the fastest band you know, i noticed the point where you say you only listen to bands with human player. I substantially agree with you if we think about the overall sound of a real drum compared to that of a drum machine. Still, i think that a couple of "drum machine bands" are worth listening to: for instance, i really like some agoraphobic nosebleed records, and also in ministry we can find many drum machine parts...oh, well, anyway, he point is, if a band has no real drummer, do you preclude to yourself listening to it?
bye bye from italy!
You are totally right - there are lots of very good bands with drum machines, like Ministry, Godflesh and a few others where the drum machine in a way is a defining part of the sound. In grindcore it isn't.
Sorry for being a little bit "short" in my previous answer. / Anders
Is that chorus in "Worldcraft" somehow influenced by LARDs "Faith, Hope and Treachery"? To me it sounds similar with those background noises.
What is the fastest band that you have ever heard? Probably the berzerker or something?
So according to all this, I believe that the fastest band I listen to is Hate Eternal. A consistant fast speed through out the songs and the album. / Anders
I'm making a poster of my favorite bands, using the cover's of their albums and such, and when I got to Nasum, I couldn't quite make out what the picture was from the "Domedagen" demo... it almost looks like a fireman being trained, but I highly doubt that.
Do you happen to know what the image for this was?
In the beginning of "Just Another Hog", is that a movie clip of someone talking or was it one of you guys speaking during the recording of Helvete?
From the Ashes
Your is a great CD - good interesting death/grind with melody and thoughtful lyrics
disregard what Terrorizor mag says
GRIND TO SURVIVE
I didn't know that this anal cunt said this. If this is true I am deeply shocked. I know there are stupid people on earth but I cant't imagine those stupid people saying something like this.
Such a guy should be treated by justice, I mean the socalled governement.
I am not that family with law and all that but isn't that a crime already?
I am so sorry to hear something like this...
I don't know if anything happened with that "song" or not. I don't even care, but if it's released I guess the reactions from people will come quite natural. Not that Seth would care. / Anders
I was just wanting to tell you I was recently reading some earliar posts and I couldnt help but see something saying "I'm glad that faggot from nasum is dead"from a band called anal cunt (what a joke).I just wanted to tell you that ,that kind of stuff dissapoits me when people say they are glad someone else has passed away,also they are an american band and that shows a negative reflection on America,I wanted to tell you please dont be pissed at Americans just because some dumbass clueless band has to be gay. Were not all like that (thank god).I know this isnt a question but rather a statement and opinion,I just had to tell you this so you didnt think we were a bunch of low lives.Keep in mind we all love you man.
är det nått speciellt med den?
för att jag har bara sett picture dics på helvete vinylen.
har jag fel eller inte?
disken är tvär vit iaf...
do you know where i can get the frank lee-lyrics of "the world just stopped"?
the coldworker-album is great! i got it a few days ago and it's really amazing!
I usually check the Nasum site weekly to see if updates and such are happening, and something that has caught my eye each time is the;
" Yet unanswered questions: 1. "
I've seen that there for awhile, and was thinking what the question was? I'm thinking it could be a personal question, if so, I'm sorry for asking this question.
Let me ask you a question; what equipment did Nasum use to get that guitar sound on Shift? And how many guitar tracks are there (on the average) per song? :)
Neither Urban nor I remembers the exact details from the recording as it wasn't documented in any way, but it's very likely that the recording was quite similar to "Helvete" when it comes to the guitars, i.e. Mieszko miked the guitars with a couple of mikes (I have a slight memory of only two for "Shift") and all guitars were dubbed (four tracks of guitars in total). / Anders
Jag har en fråga angående blastbeats.
Jag har spelat trummor ett ganska bra tag nu, men jag är helt självlärd och min teknik är nog inte den mest genomtänkta, men ja har problem när ja ska grinda. min vänster hand (jag spelar med höger hand hi-hat) hänger inte riktigt med och den liksom låser sig på något sätt. samarbetar inte. som om motoriken inte stämmer, men de konstiga är att ja kan virla snabbt till förbannelse, men så fort jag ska grinda så uppstår detta problem. Vet du nåt knep, eller måste ja helt enkel öva mer?
I och med att du skriver att du klarar av att köra en virvel utan problem kanske du ska analysera hur din vänster funkar när du virvlar och jämföra det med grindandet. Flyttar sig armen på något sätt, slår du någon annanstans på trumman etc. Om du försöker hålla vänstern på samma sätt så ska det realistiskt sett inte vara några problem. Ett sätt att öva kan kanske vara att virvla som vanligt först och sen fortsätta och virvla med högern på hihaten.
Lycka till med problemet och ditt fortsatta grindande. / Anders
Before my question, I must say that out of all the band sites I've been on, you are the most dedicated to the site, answering questions daily and just all together showing a lot of dedication to the fans, it's awesome =).
But yes.. Out of the hundreds of Nasum songs I've listened to, the one that confused me the most, was "Soendermald", from "Industrislaven"... I know the song is the same as "Ingenting Att Ha!", but the vocals are... psychotic regurgitating sounds.
I was wondering if you could tell me the story or the answer behind the song?
"Söndermald" is actually that slow instrumental track and the song you are asking about is called "Revolution II" (as it's a reprise of "Revolution"), and it was supposed to be a hidden bonus track, but it got it's own track #, thus making the tracklist "correct", when it comes to the number of titles and the number or tracks.
I can't quite remember why we did "Revolution II" in the first place. I think it had to do with the original having an improvised vocal part in the middle and we decided to do an all improvised take with a pitch shifter. Something like that. / Anders
will you do more nasum merch?
This is a bootleg right?
Have you ever thought about recording a drum video?
I've seen some awesome demo's of other drummers, and I think you could do the same.
Maybe a tutorial on how to do grindcore, or just some wicked beats of yours?
i think i'm one of your youngest fans. i'm fourteen and i want to play guitar like you. is there any tip about playing grindcore guitar?
thank a lot
do you speak or understand any german? i heard that the swedish or norway children are learning something at school!
