Question from Robin (IP: 81.236.177.58) posted March 31, 2006 20:47:18:
Q:
Har ni i bandet någon gång fått skit från andra band (eller allmänt "metalfolk") på grund att ni är vegetarianer (och vad jag vet så dricker du ej alkohol)?
A:
Nej. För övrigt är jag inte vegetarian längre. / Anders
Question from Z from Czech (IP: 193.179.220.253) posted March 30, 2006 13:46:23:
Q:
Hi, Z from Czech is here. I have some questions. Czech Rock/Metal magazine SPARK wrote, you will produce your live stuff. If is it true, when will it and which label will it expends. Thank You and good Luck!
A:
What I have said in interviews is that there is no more studiosongs with Nasum left to release, but there might be some liverecordings released if the material sounds good enough (and are good enough playingwise) to be released. So far the only thing that is good enough to be released on record is the live recording from Japan that I have talked about that we have a little preview of on the Audio/Video page.
The other stuff I have found so far is not good enough for CD/vinyl but good enough for the web, so there will be some liveclips at nasum.com pretty soon. / Anders
Question from tromb (IP: 203.230.224.85) posted March 30, 2006 09:19:58:
Q:
hi anders!
are you going to update (create...) the FAQ page ever? considering that you continue to receive always the same questions in Q&A, it should be a good idea...or at least this is my point of view!
See ya!
A:
One of these days... Right now nasum.com is not my highest priority, but soon I will have some time to do odds and ends at the site. Something new might appear this weekend. / Anders
Question from Lasse (IP: 81.224.131.61) posted March 27, 2006 19:56:35:
Q:
Hallå Anders, Jag var så pass lycklig att få en Regurgitate/Grudge split idag och såg att du gav dom omslaget! Vad tusan är det för nåt egentligen, har du hållt på med några fler omslag till andra band?
A:
Någon gång i forntiden skickade någon bilder från den mexikanska tidningen Alarma! till mig och det var väl någon bild därifrån som jag lånade/gav till RGTE. Mer än så var det inte. / Anders
Question from Dan (IP: 137.250.62.65) posted March 27, 2006 12:18:31:
Q:
So 25% of Shift's material was considered "recycled" even by the band itself?!
A:
No. It's just artwork. / Anders
Question from Daniel M (IP: 203.14.53.15) posted March 27, 2006 09:04:23:
Q:
On the Shift CD, Nasum used a motif of three arrows in a triangle shape among the 4 cover symbols, and later this became an integral symbol on the Grind Finale CD...
Could you please explain the significance of this symbol to Nasum, and what it means.
(Where I come from- Australia- this symbol usually refers to "recycle")
Thanks, Anders, and I just want to say I am totally enjoying G.F.! Also, many people probably say this, but a listen in one sit down is nothing but pure enjoyment for me! GRRRIND!
A:
I guess that particular symbol means recycle all over the world, and what is "Grind Finale" doing but recycling old songs? It's not more complicated than that! / Anders
Question from Amir (IP: 60.49.218.29) posted March 26, 2006 12:28:51:
Q:
Hello Anders, My Name is Amir.I'm From Malaysia. I Would Like To Ask U About How To Buy Nasum T-Shirt.. For Your Information,I Don't Have A Credit Card.. Can I Pay You A Cash Money Through Mail..?? Thanks.
A:
Yes. / Anders
Question from Richard (IP: 194.237.166.199) posted March 25, 2006 03:29:12:
Q:
Hallå!
Hur menar du att framtida släpp skulle uppfattas som att du/ni mjölkar ur det sista?
Skulle det inte vara schysst om ni kanske hann med att släppa det du listade innan Grind Finale-vinylen så att det verkligen fick bli det absolut sista. Dom som skulle tro att det var för att tjäna några sista slantar på Nasum förstår ju verkligen inte Nasum då... Hur går det förresten med ND-spliten??

ps. du har möjligtvis inte kvar något ex. av The bloodbath is coming?
/Richard
A:
Många tycker redan att "Grind Finale" är att mjölka pengar ur Nasum (att det inte finns några som helst mängder pengar i skivsläpp är dock ett fakta de har missat...), men ändå: Bandet lades ned tidigt 2005, att hålla på och släppa skivor med Nasum 2007-2008 känns inget vidare.
Det finns inga nyheter om splitten och jag har inga ex av skivan du nämnde. / Anders
Question from Fredrik (IP: 62.20.125.86) posted March 24, 2006 21:27:07:
Q:
Är det du som äger Öl-flaskan från P3 Guld Awards?
A:
Jag vet inte om någon av oss behöll någon som minne. Jag tror fotot är det enda vi har. / Anders
Question from Paul (IP: 142.167.241.126) posted March 24, 2006 20:36:27:
Q:
How many copies of Grind Finale were pressed (2000?) also is it now considered Out Of Print.

Any word on the status of a vinyl release for Grind Finale? I can imagine that this would be a complete Masterpiece on Vinyl and I know that I would love to have it in my Collection as do others.

Just wondering, thanks again.
A:
As far as I know the "limited" printrun is 7500 so I would not expect it to be out of print already!
Nothing is decided on the vinyl yet, but I guess it will be done eventually. Hopefully quite soon as I would not want future Nasum releases (in my world the "Grind Finale" vinyl, the "Shift" PD and the Nasum/Napalm Death split) to appear as greedy attempts to milk out the last money from the band.
/ Anders
Question from Robert84Ger (IP: 84.182.118.18) posted March 22, 2006 11:04:44:
Q:
You have written: nasum never come back.
I think an album dedicated to Mieszko, demanding and extrem played will be the best farewell!
A:
"Grind Finale" is the best farewell. / Anders
Question from Niclas (IP: 217.31.169.86) posted March 17, 2006 11:13:10:
Q:
När kommer det in nya ex av tröjorna? Dvs Shift och Helvete-hoodies'arna.
A:
Du ska inte räkna med att det kommer nya. / Anders
Question from Richard (IP: 194.237.166.199) posted March 17, 2006 01:23:05:
Q:
Hej!
Tänkte bara höra med dig om du vet vad det är för kvalitet på filmningen på erat gig på cbgb's?
Den ligger ute på ebay nämligen, går ut om nån timme...
/Richard
A:
Den videoupptagning jag är inte så bra ljudmässigt eftersom det typ saknas virvel på hela konserten... Köp inte! / Anders
Question from Takumi (IP: 85.224.73.137) posted March 15, 2006 11:30:47:
Q:
I´m a traveler from Japan. Now I´m in Göthenborg.
I beg a favor with you.
I would like to go to Mieszko´s grave and pray his good sleep. All I know is that it´s in Örebro.
So will you tell me how I can get there from the Örebro station, woun´t you?
I´m going to Örebro tomorrow or next day.
A:
Take a cabride to Almbykyrkan (Church of Almby) and then locate an area within in the cemetery called "Syrénen" (there are maps at the cemetery) and Mieszko's grave is at Syrénen 130. As far as I know it still has no proper gravestone and look like on these pictures. / Anders
Question from Trevor (IP: 68.162.139.158) posted March 15, 2006 03:22:02:
Q:

Question from Anders (IP: 81.235.17.166) posted March 10, 2006 19:43:47:
Q:
Tjenare anders.

Jag tror du skrev något i bloggen om att krigshot skulle spela på en svensk festival i sommar där alla crusties brukar samla sig, antog då att det var augustibuller du menade? Vore guld om ni kom dit! Så jag blev förjävla glad när jag såg i senaste close-up på konsertguiden att ni skulle komma dit. Dock har ju inte buller släppt er på hemsidan än. Men du kanske kan avslöja om det stämmer? close-up skrev ju trots allt med er så du kan ju ändå inte få skäll av bullret om du berättar så att säga :)

/mvh, anders
A:
Jodå, så är det. / Anders
Question from Daniel (IP: 81.227.42.218) posted March 9, 2006 19:22:37:
Q:
Tjena Anders!
En fråga angående Krigshot:
har ni något satt release datum på "Till vilket pris som helst"
A:
Nja, jag vet inte. Releasepartyt är ju den 14/4 så antingen kommer den ut då eller lite tidigare. / Anders
Question from Misslyckade (IP: 85.76.51.196) posted March 9, 2006 13:59:22:
Q:
Damn that new Krigshot sounds good! I can compare it only to Örebromangel, the only album I have. So, will the new one ever be available on CD?

ps. The new vocals are great! With all respect for Mieszko's work on the earlier ones of course.
A:
Yes, it's coming on both LP and CD on Communichaos with distro in the US by Profane Existance.
I hope you're not using "Misslyckade" as a screen name, because it's really not the correct way to use that word. / Anders
Question from calvin (IP: 207.161.45.63) posted March 9, 2006 07:41:11:
Q:

Question from Fredrik (IP: 213.67.174.199) posted March 8, 2006 21:08:04:
Q:
Tjena Anders!
Måste bara fråga några saker :)

Vilken av era 4 skivor har sålt mest och vilken av dom gjorde er "kända" liksom?

Om jag skulle gissa så är det "Helvete" men man vet ju aldrig. Hehe!

G.y.M // Fredrik
A:
Jag tror att svaret är "Inhale/Exhale" på samtliga frågor. Sålt mest eftersom den funnits längst. / Anders
Question from julien (IP: 85.68.223.140) posted March 8, 2006 20:23:25:
Q:
hello, i would like to know if it would be possible for you to send me all the bass tabs of all your albums by email, or otherwise if it exist a book for sale with all your bass tabs?
A:
No, it's not possible nor does such a book exist. Listen and pick them out yourself! / Anders

A:
Hey, I know there are some demand for bigger sized t-shirts but the demand is too small to actually have those sizes in stock. But if you (and the other larger fans that wants bigger t-shirts) just get in touch and let me know what you are interested in I might be able to do some special order with the next reprint.
This goes out to the smaller dudes and dudettes too that need extra small or girlies. Again: Get in touch and I'll save your emails. I've got yours, Steve. / Anders
