2.Imagine Napalm Death asks you to become their second guitarplayer,would you accept the offer?
2. No. I am a drummer you know. / Anders
Hva slag utstur sverget Nasum til på bassgitar- og gitarfronten? Forsterkere, trommer etc.? Hadde forøvrig Mieszko (RIP) noen formell videre utdanning, i og med at han visstnok var god med audioteknikk (ingeniørsaker)?
Krigshot ser jævlig bra ut!
What's up, (ex) Nasum!!!
I have no question, I would just like to say that this is the best band website I have seen! I haven't been here in a while since the release of Helvete, so this is the first time I saw this Q&A page. It's fucking awesome and cool of you Anders to have this page and even answer your fans! I wish you happiness in your personal life and music. It would be cool if other bands have this feature in their site to interact with fans.
Ranting over. I got no question but any comments would be really cool. hahaha
It just seems like a very odd thing to put on a cd cover.
Grind Finale is so.... beautifull!!
But I have some questions:
How will be "Grind Finale" bought?? Only on the Net or in the shops where we find other Nasum cd's?
Will Grind Finale be limited? How many do you product?
Thanx for an answer (and sorry if my english sucks, i'm french).
Good luck, and thanx for everything you've done and you do.
Goodbye Mieszko, see ya in a grindcore paradise!!
And boy am I looking forward to January ;)
Have a noisy xmas and new year.
As stated over and over again - this is a project, not a band - so it will exist on a pure project level, i.e. get together when the time is right, write some songs, record demos, perhaps record a record of some kind. I don't think shows or tours are in the picture, to be honest.
I would estimate that the lyrical content should be as old school as the music and not have a political approach. There was an original plan for the lyrics when I approached the guys about the project, but I don't think we will follow that plan due to the quality of the songs. / Anders
Vem är påtänkt som sångare?
Är det antingen Jesper eller Rickard, eller någon helt annan?
God jul på er alla.
Du svarade på en tidigare fråga såg jag att man får 99% av nasums låtar när man har Grind finale och samtliga fullängdare..
Vad är den sista procenten som saknas..?
Well here's a question I've been asking a couple people I know and no one has a accurate answer. I thought why not ask someone who is actually in a well known grindcore band... here it is:
According to books like "Choosing Death: The Improbable Histroy of Death Metal and Grindcore" and many other people within the metal/punk scene, Napalm Death are considered to be the "gateway" band to extremeness in the extreme metal/hardcore world being they've supposedly invented the "blast beat" and shcizophrenic hardcore punk (aka grindcore today.) What do you feel about Napalm Death's contribution to the extreme world? Would there have never been any blast beats in death/black metal if it wasn't for Napalm Death? Was grindcore in fact invented by them?
This is a debateable quesiton I know, but what are your feelings on this being you were apart of the whole grindcore movement?
But: Napalm Death was the first band to put grindcore on the map (much due to John Peel's radioshow in England), so they probably had a lot of influence on extreme music in general, and ultimately how things are today. I've never seen Napalm Death as the reason for blast beats in death/black. I think it would have came natural in those genres eventually anyway.
Bands have always been looking for ways to be more extreme, and increasing the speed is certainly one way to do it. I remember when I first head Accept's "Fast as a shark" during the 80's and was totally blown away by the speed. A couple of years later I heard Slayer's "Silent scream" and felt that it was so fast that I couldn't hardly listen to it. A year later I heard grindcore for the first time and understood that the speed limit was reached (in hindsight: not really!).
So Napalm Death's contribution to the extreme world is priceless but I don't think they are the direct reasons to those things you mentioned.
Jobbar upp mig i samlingen...
Har anders nån skiva han är stolt över?
Skiva jag är stolt över? Nja, men när vi ändå talar om trollen så kan jag ju skryta (?) med att jag har AxCx:s 5643 låtars 7" EP. Alltid något. / Anders
Vilka dödsmetall band gillar du, om du gillar nåt förstås...?
Då måste jag ställa en följdfråga=) Varför var napalm death och DEP så bra då? jag har träffat DEP och dem var mycket trevliga!
Va svarade Seth på er lilla You look divorced-kör då?
Det roliga är ju att han faktiskt är frånskild. haha. Och att han skrivit om en massa människor som ligger i koma och är homosexuella. Och han vaknade för inte så länge sedan upp ur en koma. Ödets ironi kanske?
Dillinger Escape Plan å andra sidan var närmare oss i ålder och sånt så det blev liksom en bra kontakt mellan oss. Det var kul.
Seth suckade till och flinade lite lätt och fortsatte vara bakfull. Ödets ironi, precis, det är väl bara en tidsfråga innan han kommer ut ur garderoben också... / Anders
im chris from bergamo (italy) ..i write for this questions.....
is possible have a contact with your friends or another your friendly people for have a video registration of the live concert of nasum in csa dordoni in cremona in december 2004....before i search this item with a metal people in italy but is impossible have this item..................
because not create in a NASUM merch...a t-shirt from the cover of a first disegn of grind finale cd (the design with a skull and a big amp. write NICE NOISE is a very funny design and is a very istinct of of a NASUM sound )...thank for your patience chris
nasum forever - forever nasum
The "skull and amp" drawing you talked about was NOT the first design for "Grind Finale"! A t-shirt is not planed with this design. / Anders
Jag vet inte om dessa frågor har ställts tidigare, men jag kunde hitta dom iaf.
Vilket är ditt favoritband att turnera ihop med?
Och hur va det att turnera ihop med Seth och grabbarna i Anal Cunt? Hur va Seth som person?
Att turnera med AxCx var inget speciellt för i ärlighetens namn var vi och Napalm Death som åkte tillsammans medan AxCx och Pig Destroyer åkte ihop. Det var bara mest under gemensamma middagar (populärt i Japan) och vid gigen som vi sågs och jag kan väl säga att vid ett tillfälle gluffsade Seth i sig en rejäl sked wasabi.
Jag vet inte vad jag ska säga om honom som person. Jag pratade aldrig med honom, men när AxCx kom upp till Toys Factorys kontor och Seth såg lite seg och bakfull ut sa hela Nasum i kör: "You look... divorced", och det var otroligt roligt.
("You look divorced" är en av AxCxs fina titlar för de som inte vet.) / Anders
Jag är bara lite nyfiken på vad du har använt för program för att remastra(EQ:a) låtarna till grind finale??
2.Where do you see the future of grind, do you see it reverting back to it's grass roots a little or do you think we'll continue to see cross-genre bands that expand the boundaries, so to speak, of grindcore (eg. The Berzerker)?
3.Do you think we'll ever see another major label "cash grab" of grind bands like we did in the mid 90's with Carcass and Napalm Death?
4.What is one band you wish Nasum could have toured with that you were never able to?
5.When you were playing guitar in Nasum, what tunings did you use, and what was your guitar of choice?
2. I can't tell really. I guess grind will never be huge or trendy, but I imagine that bigger bands can bring some grindinfluences to their stuff. We heard it on Slipknot's latest, some say System Of A Down have grindparts now (I don't) and Soilwork has a pure grindsong on their latest (song is called "Blind eye halo" - check it out!). Five years ago I heard more grindinfluences in the hardcorebands but it really didn't catch on, so I have no idea what to expect of the future.
3. I wouldn't say that grind made it to the major labels. Anyway - black metal is a more commercial extreme style so they'll keep to that.
4. Converge. It almost happened, and could have happened during 2005.
5. I had a Ibanez with EMG-81 (still have) and the tuning during my guitar years started with a D-tuning (first two recordings) and then became a B-tuning. / Anders
Bara undrar lite snabbt om du har lust att lägga ut "Godmorgon Idiotjävel" här på sidan idag? Skulle så jävla gärna vilja höra deni Remastered. Snälla kan du inte göra det ?
Skulle vara evigt tacksam!
Och undrar också om du jättegärna vill sälja den där flaggan ni använde scenen i Hultsfred? Skulle betala massvis för den :D
Hade skitbra / Fredrik
2. Nej. / Anders
You should not judge the sound of my cymbals from the Osaka video because first of all - those cymbals were part of a rented backline and not mine, and second of all the sound has been compressed by a videocamera and then damaged by the videoclip compression, so the sound is really far from the truth. / Anders
I'm looking forward to hearing from your new project.. Which genre will it be? Or is that too early to tell?
But contact me and tell me what you are intrested in and I might print something for you at the next restock. This offer is of course valid for other people as well who wants stuff in other sizes than the available ones. / Anders
I have no real question, I just wanted to tell you a couple of things..
First off, I truly, deeply feel for the loss of Mieszko Talarczyk.. When I read the stuff you had written about him on this page, I felt like crying.. I didn't know him as person, but I am a very big Nasum fan, and just imagining what you guys must be going through, it's.. Horrible.. But I'm glad to hear that you're getting upwards again.. Everything's going to be alright.. I just wanted to tell you, that I too am really sorry that he is no more.. It hurts deeply in my heart.. I wish you the best of luck for the future, and please: Try to keep your mood up..
Second: I'm also very sorry to hear that you have stopped Nasum entirely.. I know that you have written that no one knows what the future will bring, and I really DO NOT want to be selfish, especially not in your situation, but just the thought of Nasum being no more, that is sad.. I would also very much like to see you guys live some time, but of course I fully understand if you cannot keep doing this, being in Nasum.. I truly do.
But what I really want to say, is this: I did not know Mieszko personally or anything, I am only a fan.. But what do you guys think that he would want you to do if he should die? Personally, even though I did not know him, I think he would want you guys to carry on, and still be an active band.. No matter what happened, I think he would want you guys to keep going.. And don't forget the song you guys yourself wrote: "Go!".. "Never give in, never give up, you have to stand strong. If there's a will, there is a way, just f*cking carry on".. That song have helped me a lot when I have been down, and I just wanted to remind you of how you felt when you wrote that..
Well, that was all for now.. A reply would be nice..
And again, good luck to all of you in the future.. Grindcore forever!
In the end it's not really up to that person to decide for the others what to do, it's a matter of how things feel.
I don't know if you play in a band yourself but I am sure you've heard about "band chemistry". Well, we felt that an important ingredient was missing and that it currently is impossible to find.
I am as sorry as the next guy that we never got to do a proper US/Canada tour, or that we never explored the parts of Europe that were unknown for Nasum, or got to Australia and what have you, but a reunion of Nasum isn't really an option anymore.
In a way, the new project I have with Urban and Jon (and ultimately Jesper and hopefully Rickard) will sort of fill the gap Nasum left, although the style of this is slightly different. I am planing to share our October recording with you guys pretty soon (I need to remix it) and you will hear for yourself.
As for "Go!" it was a try to write some sort of positively charged lyrics as a counterpart to our normal lyrics which fed on the negative parts of life and society (something that goes along very well with the aggressive music), and I am glad that it helped you, but it will not bring Nasum back from the dead. / Anders
