About the recording...

We got contacted by the Finish record label Hostile Regression, by traditional snailmail I assume, and got offered to be a part of a compilation CD. So we wrote the songs and recorded them in the first version of Soundlab Studios.

I think we really hit it with this recording. In my opinion the sound is really powerful and it was the first time we really had a good production. And I have never had such a good voice. “Dis sucks” has the best vocals I’ve ever performed.

I really, really love this recording. Some of the playing is kinda sloppy but still there’s something special about this one. If it had been released as a separate Nasum release I think it would’ve been one of the classics. I can even smell the old Soundlab Studio when I listen to this recording. Also my number one favourite line in a Nasum lyric is on this one: “Fuck the system as it fucks you every fucking day!” I love that line!

About "The Green Tape"...

When we had recorded the songs for the “Regressive Hostility” compilation, I taped them to a green cassette that I sent to Relapse Records. They liked it and it ultimately led to a record deal and then "Inhale/Exhale". “The Green Tape,” as Relapse refers to the session, is definitively one important part in the life of Nasum.
