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!
I had another question I thought of today, when I was listening to "Really Fast" and realized Rickard was doing the drumming.
How hard was it (especially in the grindcore genre) for you to switch from playing guitar, to jump right into playing the drums permanently?
Thank you for all the time you have spent answering my questions =).
You need to get "Grind Finale" and read all the stories about the recordings. / Anders
With which nasum album, when writing and recording, do you think you were most in touch with your emotions and most connected as a band?
Cuz sometimes things happen in our lives or in our world just once, but is enough to bring about a change of emotions, and youd feel that the inspiration would just flow out and the album would feel right.
Im just wondering which album was closest to that speculation?
Cheers me amigo
Sorry about the length of this post just like in my last question, but now i realise im just fucking making it longer with every word.
On "Human 2.0" there's a song called "Sometimes dead is better" which was my way of dealing with a broken relationship. That song and a couple more were directly inspired by personal things. / Anders
Hva synes du om den nylige Etiopia/USA-intervensjonen i det anarkistiske Somalia?
Synes fortsatt du burde mase ihjel Jon Lindqvist eller Jesper om å legge ut bass-tabs.
Tvivlar på att Jesper eller Jon är kapabla att skriva bastabbar... / Anders
P.S. Another question, do you know if Nasum's t-shirts are distributed in Italy??? Thanks NASUM YOU'RE THE BEST OF GRIND
If there's any Nasum t-shirts distributed in Italy they are probably bootleg shirts. / Anders
När jag lyssnade på "Helvete" idag så tänkte jag på en sak jag inte tänkt på tidigare... Alla texter är på engelska, den enda fullängdaren med bara engelska texter på och den enda fullängdaren med svensk titel. Var detta något planerat eller en slump?
Skriver du några grindcorelåtar nu för tiden, eller får idéer iaf? Efter 15 år som låtskrivare i grindcore går det väl inte bara att sluta, eller?
P.S. Rugge måste ha gått o blitt galen! Han säljer sin röda "Blind World"tischa på ebay nu! Måste ha!:)
Slump eller inte, spelar det någon större roll? Det finns ju t.ex mängder av death och black metalband som har skivtitlar på latin men knappast sjunger på det språket. Titlarna på våra skivor valdes med omsorg och inte alls beroende på låtarna på skivan.
Det är gott om grind i de låtar jag skriver till Coldworker även om det inte är några renodlade grindlåtar. Jag blir lite sugen ibland, men jag får utlopp för det jag vill göra i Coldworker så just räcker det. / Anders
I had my I-pod on a Nasum shuffle and I got to the intro of Industrislaven.
I wasn't quite sure what the sound was in the beginning.
Sounded like people mining or guitar feedback?
Do you happen to know what it was? =)
P.S. You guys were the best ever,you guys owned any band i know and i know a hell of a lot of bands!I have high hopes for Gadget,they kick ass and have lots of potential.Well anyway good luck in the future man and keep on grinding we all love you to death.
Of the albums I think the one with the most brutal passages is "Shift". Like the opening riff/part of "Particles" or the pumping Bolt Throweresque part in "Circle of Defeat". Nasum never got more brutal than that. / Anders
We are Facada grindcore from Brazil. Cheers!
Greets from The Netherlands
Sannolikt var det ungefär samma inspelningsförfarande gällande gitarrerna som vid "Helvete", dvs Mieszko mickade upp gitarrerna med ett antal mickar (något i mig säger dock att det bara var två mickar till "Shift") och gitarrna stereodubbades (alltså fyra gitarrer sammanlagt).
Till vissa slingor, halvdistade partier etc användes pluggen AmpFarm men alla kompgitarrer är "på riktigt". / Anders
I was listening to A Request For Guidance a few minutes ago, and amonst the beautiful snare drum assault, I wondered about 2 things.
1. I couldn't quite make out from the photos, but what set of drums did you use for most of your shows?
2. What album of Nasum's did you enjoy most of your work on?
All the best to Krigshot =) !
2. I haven't listened to the Nasum albums in a while, but I actually listened to the Making of "Preview of hell" mp3 today and was surprised by the druming. Generally speaking I am not fully satisfied with any of the albums drumwise, compaired to the Coldworker album which is basically faultless (?), but to say something I say "Helvete". / Anders
before I ask my question, I'd like to say how fucking wicked your technique of blast beats are. I dont know if its the extra kick you throw in, it just suits everything you play.
But to the question;
Does the band you are in now ever play any Nasum songs? for fun or tribute?
greetings to coldwörker
Im a drummer from ireland, and not to lick your balls like everyone else does cuz im sure your sick of it, but i admire your drumming technique, both fast and slow Some of those blast beats get so fast, moreover conveying of anger it would seem
I was wondering what your take was on the thrash band propagandhi, cuz you covered one of their songs and you guys have a lot in common, like it seems to me you both used your music partly as a medium to promote a message, just as my band (warning shot) attempts to do.
Sorry about the huge length of this post, its ridiculous.
May the grind be with you.
Well, Propagandhi was and is one of the most political bands I know about and their enthusiasm really inspired me although I am not a political person in the same way they are. Plus, I really enjoyed the music and so did Mieszko. At that point "Rio de San Atlanta, Manitoba" was their rawest song so it was fairly easy to make a cover of it and sort of stay true to the original feeling of the song and presenting it for an audience who probably weren't aware of them, instead of doing another cover by a band that they already know about. / Anders
