Q:
Hej! Om merch man har beställt inte har dykt upp, vad bör man göra då? Sy egna? Haha!

Tack på förhand!
A:
Man får hålla tummarna riktigt hårt... Dessvärre har jag ingen makt över vad som händer efter att jag lagt paketen på lådan och då och då verkar det vara klåfingriga människor på Posten som norpar åt sig varorna... :( / Anders

Q:
How do you guys feel about electronic dance music? Do you guys like it or do think its killing music with its pop image? And what bands do like suck or do you think American metal or any metal needs a change?
A:
Well, as most any other music style electronic (dance) music has a mainstream and an underground, so no matter what the mainstream does the underground remains the same. As for any modern metal, I think we've had enough of breakdowns by now... / Anders

Q:
Hey guys I placed an order the day that the grind finale lps came out, plus a hat. I haven´t received any confirmation or anything, should I keep waiting? or how can know the status? Thanks
A:
I reply within two days, but there has been a few orders with faulty email addresses so my replies have just bounced back. I would suspect that yours was one of them, so just make a new order and make sure to write your correct email address! / Anders

I see someone already asked (hoped) to see a Nasum documentary DVD. I would like to see it as well, but I'd like to see bunch of these farewell shows stuffed into the same package. That would be amazing.

Well, something like that is what we are working on, but I rather not speak more about it until it's a done deal. / Anders

Thank you for the grind.

Q:

A:
"Enkelresa till rännstenen", a session which also included the songs for the Nasum/Skitsystem split and the Ebba Grön cover "Beväpna er" which just recently got released on a one-sided 7" EP. / Anders
Question from Josh (IP: 82.113.121.99) posted October 13, 2012 19:46:05:
Q:
Hey,

Anders, I just went to the previously asked questions like I do at some times. I became more than annoyed when I read was this user named Olive wrote, meaning you would try to make money out of Nasum and its destiny. I have seen you on one of the last shows of Nasum in 2004 and two times on the farewell dates. This were some of the best times in my life. You know, I love to see people playing great music with a big message like you do. And I know your attitude, its my attitude. This is what I enjoy so much.
So what I want to say is that Nasum is definitly NOT about to make money. I can totally understand your decision when it comes to the farewell tour and everything else. This has definitly not been a tour to raise profit, this has been a tour to give the spirit of Nasum some last great times. And the same counts for Grind Finale, the compilation and everything else which happened after 2004. Anders, I, and I think 99,99% of the people know that. So fuck this dude.
Thanks so much, Anders!

And heres one last question: Do you have leftover Merch from the Farewell tour which you will put online? Unfortunatly I did not have enough money with me at the Tivoli show to buy a baseball shirt.
A:
Thanks. Yes, there are some leftover merch that will be put up online soon, but it's mostly odd sizes and not all of the designs we had on the tour. I'm sorry to say that there isn't a single copy of the baseball shirt left among the leftovers... / Anders
Question from Felix Forsgren (IP: 90.230.25.119) posted October 8, 2012 20:45:36:
Q:
tjenare! har länge undrat om låten "söndermald" från "industrislaven" är gästad av någon annan sångare eller om ni bara lagt effekt på sången? och föresten, går det fortförande att få tag i era gamla demos och LPs?
A:
Du har lyssnat på CD:n förstår jag, där två låtar i mitten blivit samma "nummer"... "Söndermald" är den tunga instrumentala låten som är sist, sen kommer "Revolution II" som är låten "Revolution" igen fast med pitchad sång som inte sjunger någon text alls. Bara en rolig sak i studion. Gammalt jox finns möjligen att hitta begagnat, men inte nytt. / Anders
Question from Marcus Lundy (IP: 208.54.37.137) posted October 5, 2012 19:37:44:
Q:
how to make electronic music with grindcore
A:

Question from Pete (IP: 80.7.156.4) posted September 23, 2012 17:16:51:
Q:
Ah, so you like Twin Peaks?

What time (of course, I'm speaking "around" what time) is the show in London expected to end? Just wanted to make sure I can get back to the hostel with the underground.

Pete
A:
There's a curfew at 11 already so it's an early show. / Anders
Question from Jordan J, (IP: 184.69.86.114) posted September 14, 2012 08:57:47:
Q:
Anders! I had a question I forgot to ask Keijo personally when I saw you guys in Seattle. Does he know how to speak Swedish? Seeings how you guys play songs like Löpandebandsprincipen, Den Svarta Fanan, etc... Just thought it would be interesting to know, seeings how Finnish & Swedish don't come across as sounding the same at all..

Also, Cheers for adding me to the Tattoo blog! :)
A:
Swedish and Finnish is two completely different languages that comes from different roots. However, there are some Swedish speaking parts of Finland and for some reason some people in Finland learn to speak Swedish. Keijo and our Finnish crew know some Swedish but don't really know how to speak it. Some times Keijo speaks Swedish and he seriously sounds like the backwards speaking dwarf in "Twin Peaks". Very funny. But never the less he can sing the few Swedish songs we play. / Anders
Question from Levchuk Taras (IP: 109.205.248.192) posted September 12, 2012 12:12:28:
Q:
Hi. Please help. i want to buy a ticket for this one http://www.debaser.se/kalender/8313/ but can't do it. There is то English language on site. I will arrive Stohgolm from Saint-Petersburg to see Nasum. I need guarantee like a ticket. Thank you
A:
There are no presales as it's a free show. The only way to guarantee a "ticket" is to be there in good time. / Anders
Question from Callum (IP: 87.126.56.209) posted September 11, 2012 16:56:47:
Q:
Who knows, this logo might find future usages? There'll definitely be no more shows, or albums (though, honestly, I wouldn't mind a compilation or two, or maybe even a DVD, to come out), but there would definitely be more Nasum tattoos!

I'll send an EPS version of it to the nasum@nasum e-mail. Also, I might try to do a full typeface (font), hope you wouldn't mind?
A:
Well, I have most of the letters in the "Nasum alphabet" already and might do something once all this touring is over, so thanks - but no thanks. / Anders
Question from Callum (IP: 87.126.56.209) posted September 11, 2012 14:22:28:
Q:
One more question - would flags be allowed at the London concert? Tried to search for info for this specific venue, but nothing surfaced.

And one more thing, if you want a vector of this, just tell me where to send it. ;) It is a Cyrillic Nasum logo that I've made.

http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/5165/nasumlogocyrillicwhite.png
A:
Don't know about flags. That is a venue question. We wouldn't mind, but I'm not sure that most of the audience will enjoy a flag in their face.

Thanks for the logo. I actually have made something similar myself when some possible Russian shows were under discussion. But you version was better! / Anders
Question from Callum (IP: 87.126.56.209) posted September 10, 2012 23:24:30:
Q:
I fucking hate to "ask" for songs, guys, and I won't, so I'll just tell you that I managed to hear some fan recordings (oh, yes, I admit that I did) of "The Final Sleep" from this tour, and it fucking rocked. I know that this tour isn't about Mieszko but about Nasum as a whole (or at least that's how I think about it), yet I really hope to hear this one when you hit London; it is a fucking golden tribute to Mieszko.

See you in London.

And a side question, can you tell me the average price for most of the tees, 'cause I'm a broke student who's not even living in London, and I really don't wanna bring a lot of money to the venue; just what I'd spent for the night.
A:
It's fully legit to yell out your songs of choice during the shows... Just saying... I guess the average price will be €15, i.e. something like £10 in London... / Anders
Question from Erik (IP: 94.191.246.80) posted September 10, 2012 13:51:57:
Q:
Hey! Is there still no info about how to get tickets for the show in Gothenburg september 21.? Would really like to get my ticket and be assured that I'm going :)
A:
No info. Apparently they are a bit secret at Truckstop Alaska. I can't find any info... Maybe at Facebook? / Anders

Q:
Hi Anders, i have one question. I would like to buy t-shirt red factories XL or XXL size on show at Ostrava/Barrak/. Is it possible? Thank you for your time. Sorry my english is bad. Zdenek.
A:
It might be possible. It's impossible to say right now what we will have in stock at that date... / Anders
