Question from Noel (IP: posted November 1, 2006 23:31:57:
Hi Anders:

I find the riffs on "Scoop" and "Wrath" irresistible and want to play them on guitar.

I'm having a difficult time figuring them out and cannot find the tabs for them online.

Do you know where I could find the tabs for these songs?


Sorry, no idea. Most Nasum tabs out there are mostly wrong anyway. / Anders

Hello Anders!

Can you tell me from which movie the sample is at the beginning of "Blind World" from the split with Agathocles?

Thank you very much
"Flesh for Frankenstein". / Anders

just wondering about the t-shirt production. they're friggin awesome, but also friggin hard to get off your website. my closet feels empty without the "grind" shirt, which i cant find anywhere else. help? advice?
Friggin' in the riggin'... Well, the designs I've made are not licensed to any other t-shirt seller, so I guess you have to search the used markets for copies.
I think I will do another round of t-shirts in December but I don't know what designs as of now. / Anders

Hey Anders, would appreciate if you could give us some brief plannings for NASUM tribute compilations. We heard that nothing has confirm. We're from Asia and maybe we could work something out and do Asia version of the tribute if the 'world' version tribute didn't work out well. Please let me know about this. We will come out with proposal if we have the green light and we'll initiate a new email for discussion. I can be reached via Cheers bro!
I don't anything about tributes. That's all the insight I can give you. / Anders
Question from Jon Long (IP: posted October 28, 2006 03:56:59:
Hey man I've been without a computer for a very long time. Just here to say its good that the vinyl is finally happening and it is great to see coldworker up and happening.

On question i've been meaning to ask for a long time that i'm sure has been answered at one point. What does the "mangel" in orebromangel mean when it is put in that context?
Well, "mangel" means "mangler", like the apparatus you need to get your sheets and stuff flat and nice. But in Sweden we (= extreme music fans) use "mangel" as a description of how good, rough, extreme and noisey something is. I can't translate it to one good English word. It's like you're mangled by a wall of sound. So you are getting mangled by some "mangel" from Örebro.
The "Örebromangel" title is of course comes from a classic Swedish hardcore tape called "Stockholmsmangel" wíth some of the prime hardcore bands of the 80's Stockholm scene. / Anders

Tja, hur ser affischen ut i sin helhet? Den som följer med Grind FInale-Lpn alltså.
Som framsidan på plattan. / Anders
Question from darrell (IP: posted October 27, 2006 01:52:50:
Anders, will Grind Finale vinyl be released in the US at any point? it looks amazing and i would love to own it but the shipping to america is very expensive.

also, is there colored vinyl for the release?

thanks man
Well, it's relesed by a Canadian label so it will be available in the US. Relapse will have 100 copies in their webshop in a near future. They will probably have a more resonable price for American buyers. The postage rate is pretty much insane here.
The vinyl has the color black, the only true vinyl color! / Anders
Question from Goregrinder (IP: posted October 25, 2006 16:23:12:
härligt! du vet inte vad det är för typ av kepsar? Du har inga bilder från de kepsar som ni har haft förut? För vad jag har förstått så har ni haft det?
Jag vet inte exakt, men jag tror att de kommer att vara ganska tajta kepsar. De skulle komma i två storlekar, S/M och L/XL. De tidigare kepsar vi haft har inte varit några höjdare. / Anders
Question from Goregrinder (IP: posted October 25, 2006 14:08:45:
Det är inte aktuellt med några kepsar när du tar tag i tröjorna?
Faktiskt är det kepsar på gång genom Unrest Records, men jag vet inte riktigt när de kan dyka upp. / Anders
Question from A Broken Today (IP: posted October 24, 2006 01:48:34:
I have a question about merch, and I dont know if it has been asked yet or not, sorry if it has been.

Will any more Nasum merch be made, because I am looking for the Crass style logo and the NASUM GRIND logo. Thanks for your help

P.S Coldworker is sounding SICK

I will deal with the merch in December, but I have yet not decided what to reprint. / Anders
Question from Daniel Polsinger (IP: posted October 22, 2006 16:58:01:

I wanted to know if there are plannings for a NASUM tribute compilation in future, such as some labels did with Brutal Truth for example. If yes, could you post a contact adress where bands can apply to become a part of it.

I would be grateful for an answer.

People are asking me this all of the time but so far nothing has happened. / Anders
Question from Nils (IP: posted October 20, 2006 23:40:14:
Ta en titt på dessa två klipp, våra första gig med grindcorebandet. Skulle va kul med lite respons!
Låter schysst! Lite svårt att höra riffen, men grymt trumspel. Men om ni ska kalla er "grindcore" får ni har lite högre blastratio i låtarna... / Anders
Question from Toto (IP: posted October 18, 2006 16:10:38:
Hej Anders!

What is your favourite swedish band(s)?

Greets from Hungary.
Doktor Kosmos. / Anders
Question from Goregrinder (IP: posted October 10, 2006 18:24:04:
vad är det för något de ska spela in i din studio då?
Lite låtar, kanske någon 7" eller så. Jag vet inte. / Anders
Question from Goregrinder (IP: posted October 10, 2006 16:22:56:
du vet inte någon om en möjlig spelning i örebro?
För RGTE? Nä. / Anders
Question from Goregrinder (IP: posted October 10, 2006 12:13:46:
ok härligt! har du någon favorit av deras plattor? tänkte också p åsom du har hört deras kommande platta sickening bliss?
Jag måste ju säga att debuten, och då snackar jag splitten med Vaginal Massaker, är en riktig klassiker. Råare än så kan det inte bli.
"Sickening bliss" är cool, lite råare än de senaste albumen, men ändå i samma klassiska RGTE-anda. Två låtar var med i det senaste livesetet jag körde med dem.
Apropå RGTE så ser det ut som de kommer till Örebro i början av december och spelar in några låtar i min replokal. / Anders
Question from Richard (IP: posted October 10, 2006 01:41:25:
Märkte nyss att låtordningen under lyrics på "Human 2.0" står i fel ordning. "Riot" och "The Meaningless Trial" ska byta plats.
Tack. Undrar hur fan det gick till? / Anders
Question from Goregrinder (IP: posted October 9, 2006 22:22:30:
Hur var det nu? gillade du regurgitate innan du lde känna Urban? och är du ett fan av deras musik, eller gör du bara en god gärning och hjälper dem ibland?
Jag lärde väl känna Rugge någon gång 1992-93 tror jag det var, och Urban stött man på när de var här och spelade fast vi lärde inte känna varandra på allvar förrän han började provspela med oss 2003.
Regurgitate är bra så det är inte enbart en god gärning. / Anders
Question from Ben Terror (IP: posted October 7, 2006 13:46:54:
Why was Nasum able to write so many song?
Did you and Mieszko write whole songs seperately or bring rough ideas to rehearsal? Did guitar parts come first or drum/vocal patterns? I think you guys wrote consistently strong brutal material and hid all the bands you claim to have borrowed from well
Grind is the Answer
Well, the band was around for 12 years or something which could explain the amount of songs written. But, yes, we wrote whole songs and hardly ever jammed or wrote stuff on the spot in the rehearsal room. / Anders
Question from Holger B. (IP: posted October 6, 2006 22:33:30:
From the Candlemass forum.
"You never know what's the reaction. I guess it was last year when Swedish grindcore act Nasum was here in Tampere and at least one of their members had been earlier in a death metal band Necropsy who's 7" I really liked earlier. However, a friend of mine told me not to talk to them about Necropsy. To this day, I don't know why, but I didn't talk.

Are you Necropsy?
Necrony was the name of the band. While in Nasum I wasn't really that keen on talking about my previous band, especially since there was huge missunderstanding about Necrony evolving into Nasum. That was very not true.
And I hope that forum post is dated 2004 because "last year" we were in Tampere, was in 2003. / Anders
Question from eq (IP: posted October 3, 2006 15:40:12:
Maybe i'm not first but... check this
Yes, it's a clip I can't have on due to copyright reasons, but if it's on YouTube it's ok. Too bad YouTube fucks up the quality and too bad the original file is very out of sync. / Anders
Question from Kalle (IP: posted September 22, 2006 21:23:24:
Är de små i storlekarna?
Inte direkt. Kolla schemat på merch-sidan. / Anders
Question from Fredrik (IP: posted September 21, 2006 22:54:38:
Tjena Anders! Måste bara fråga en sak.
När mieszko vrålade som han gjorde, hade ni höjd volym på mikrofonen eller kunde han verkligen skrika sådär jävla bra som gjorde?

För isf så måste han ju varit en av de bästa i världen på att vråla sådär!

Mvh / Fredrik
Konstig fråga, man kan ju inte skrika lågt. / Anders
Question from Kalle (IP: posted September 21, 2006 15:27:19:
Vad är det för märke på coldworker tröjorna? är det printer som det är på nasum tröjorna?
Japp. / Anders
Question from Jonas (IP: posted September 20, 2006 20:43:41:
Hej Anders!
Snälla, skulle inte du vilja gå in på:
och lyssna och säga vad tycker?

Psst! Coldworker är bra! Bra jobbat! ^^
Lite svårt att höra vad som händer, men det låter ganska coolt. Får lite Converge-vibbar stundtals och det är aldrig fel. / Anders
