Are there any news about Krigshot? Do you rehearse somtimes, or just talk about new stuff? Or is Krigshot dead?
An intimate question. I understand, if you don't answer it.
Is Mieszko's girlfriend ok? I mean, she survived the tsunami, but did she recover well? I'm just curious.
I would like to ask you Anders, what type of china and ride you use on the album inhale/exhale? mainly that china sounds as a cymbal I was always looking for.
thanks for reply
best wishes :)
Also note - as I always says when it comes to questions about particular sounds - that the cymbal has been recorded through a microphone, and processed in several ways until it ended up on the record, so it's slightly difficult to judge a cymbal by how it sounds on a record... / Anders
Look at this, those filthy snatchers stole your name!
Are they allowed to use your name?
Another questions: Did you think of releasing a last bunch of Nasum merch? I think there is big public demand!
About merch... Perhaps... / Anders
1)You ever played the song "Ros"live?I search from the video in this site and all in Youtube but nothing,i'd like to listen it also in low quality.
2)There is a remote possibility in the future to review you and the other ex-members together, with you under voice,even for once,for one last concert? would be great..
3)In an interview,you say that after Grind Finale"There’s nothing more to release (although a picture disc release of “Shift” would be great to complete the collection, but I don’t think that will happen)",exactly what you're talking about?what is this possible picture disc?
4)There is something material from "shift" that you can still publish(in another interview you talk about some unfinished song from shift session)will never come out completed?
5)I know that the name"Nasum"is take from a film,and from a a temporary name become final.What were other possible names(if
you had thought,at that time).
2. My voice is not fit for any live shows...
3. The three first albums were released as picture discs shortly after the demise of the band, and "Shift" was still such a "new" album that a picture disc would interfere with the sales of the normal vinyl edition. It was always a dream to have the albums complete on picture discs, but there are currently no plans to release "Shift" in that format.
4. There might be some unfinished and/or lost songs from many of the recordings, but everything that can and will be published is on the albums and "Grind Finale".
5. Wow, I don't recall any other possible band names. I think it always was Nasum. / Anders
I noticed that the Coldworker site has been down for quite a long time: what's up?
Thanx for reply.
Its been a long time since I've last said anything on here.
I always had stated that I would get something "Nasum" related tattooed on my body, and a few days ago it came true.
Ive said it before, and will say it again that Nasum changed my life after hearing such excellent music. To show my appreciation and love for the music you & Mieszko were able to create in such short time, I figured this would show it. Shift seemed to grow on me a lot more recently over the millions of times I've listened to it, and those symbols, I felt were meaningful and interesting. There you have it, I don't know how to sum up the rest.. other than I fucking love Nasum, and always will!
What do you think of it? :)
I've been ruminating over this for some time..
But are there any meanings attached to the four symbols which make an appearance on the cover of 'Shift'?
With the exception of the symbol for recycling..
Cape Town, South Africa.
Thanks and best regards, Ulrich.
Do you have all the guitar tabs from Nasum ? I was searching for Shift tabs, especially for WRATH, and I can't find anything on web...
Thanks & Cheers
Thanks for any answers as I know it was awhile go for these shows
Its been quite sometime since I've approached you with my latest question, but the new Nasum t-shirt, "Terror", had brought something to my attention.
After a discussion with a friend of mine, he mentioned that the use of the "sun symbol" on the t-shirt has a strong tie with Nazism and white-power ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_cross ).
I'm sure this was meant to mock its previous history, but I was wondering what your thoughts were behind it, and if you were involved in the design at all?
do you remember which mesa pre-amp you used for helvete?
Var det något album ni lade ner extra mycket tid på texterna eller blev det oftast så att texterna helt enkelt var en biprodukt av sången? Jag tycker att texterna till låtarna på 'Shift' är väldigt bra, därav frågan.
Riktningarna ni tog, var de medvetna eller periodvisa? Satte ni er ner och sa att nu jävlar skulle ni göra si och så eller kom det naturligt?
Jag skulle inte säga att den musikaliska utvecklingen var planerad eller uttänkt. Det enda jag kan minnas är att när det var dags för "Human 2.0" så var vi lite medvetna om vilka olika typer av låtar vi behövde skriva. / Anders
could you place in the discography section, information about the pressing number of each nasum vinyl?i lately bought few of nasum's eps and was just wondering how many are made
2 questions(if you have the time):
1) did mieszko take any courses on enigneering? or was it an intrest or something he picked up during recording sessions?
2) is it absolutley neccesary to take classes to be an engineer? i have little exp. in recording live instruments, but moderate in mixing/producing and trying to master hip hop and electronic stuff(basically using programs w/ plugins, mixing boards for certain channels, local studios for vocal tracks etc.)
i have full confidence in reaching my goal of recording/mixing other artists (esp grind/death), as well as future projects of my own..long story short im trying to get the ball rolling as soon as possible and what better to ask than one of the groups that inspired me the most(meisko's mixing techniques for his vocals in helvete are superb). after searching around the q&a, i couldn't find an answer to any of em...
2. I think that it won't hurt to learn the basics through a course of some sort. Again, it's a matter of talent. I got neither any skills nor talent for sound engineering so it's just some pointless trial and error that's going on when I try to mix and shape the sound. Recording is easy, editing is easy, but mixing is something else. / Anders
