The original Nasum logo

One of the most frequent fan questions is: "What the font of the Nasum logo?". The answer is none. It's handmade and other than the five letters of the band name there are only a few extra letters available, and very far from the entire alphabet.

The logo was hand drawn back in 1992 and the inspiration came from Disharmonic Orchestra's logo. Here's the original Nasum logo and the one that inspired it:



Now one can argue that the two logos are not particularly similar, but if you look closely on the bit of paper with the Nasum logo you might see that it's patched together and that the N, A and S are drawn separately. There are even some dried out white-out in the S. As originally drawn the letters was more alike the Disharmonic Orchestra style, but as it didn't work out another approach was applied and thus the Nasum logo as it is know was born.

Well, that's not entirely true as you can see that the black line is very thin and not as strong as it eventually ended up. A few versions were tested and ultimately the stronger-line version became the winner.



A close up on the patched part, and the flip side of the paper where one can see the original-original letters.

Introducing The Vault Blog

The Nasum Vault is filled with all sorts of interesting, semi-intersting or uninteresting things depending on your level of Nasum fandom. Either way, it feels like a fun thing to collect it all at one place. So we give you The Vault Blog. Here things from the Vault will be posted on a not particularly regular basis. It can be something visual (well, most of the times) but perhaps also something you can listen to and maybe some moving pictures that go hand in hand with the audio. Who knows?

The occasional rant or story from the past is also a very likely possibility. In other words: Nothing is given. We'll just dig into the Vault and see what we can find.
