The Vault Blog - MONTH: May, 2023

Inhale/Exhale 25 years old!

Today, May 26 2023, it's exactly 25 years since "Inhale/Exhale" was released and ultimately became Nasum's big break. Up until then we didn't really feel that we had a following, although we obviously sold a few records and t-shirts and answered interviews (per regular mail, of course!). But it really was when "Inhale/Exhale" had been out for a while and Relapse sent us xerox copies of reviews in magazines and such that we really understood that people listen to our stuff. And they like it!

So, "Inhale/Exhale" was the stepping stone for Nasum as a real band, I would say.

It feels like yesterday when the album celebrated 20 years. Time really flies... Anyway, five years ago was the start of The Rare Nasum project when a rehearsal for "Inhale/Exhale" got released at Bandcamp. So why not celebrate in style and release another rehearsal for "Inhale/Exhale" today?

That's right - check out Bandcamp for a new 14 track album with rehearsal songs, and read some liner notes here.

In all honesty, this is a slightly week 25th celebration and I assure you that "Inhale/Exhale" will be celebrated in style, just not right now...

Nasum might not be a performing band anymore or existing in the normal sense, but the legacy remains under the sharp supervision of the founding member Anders Jakobson. THE NASUM VAULT is the "umbrella" for a number of projects collecting information and items from the Nasum history.

The first project was The Vault Blog, introduced in 2014 as a place to share "interesting, semi-interesting or uninteresting things" from the Nasum Vault - stories, images and what ever. The second project was The Rare Nasum, audio goodies published on Bandcamp - rehearsals and live shows. Side by side with these two projects, there is The Official Nasum YouTube Channel where video oddities are posted.

This page is the collective portal for The Nasum Vault, grouped in the three different time periods of the band. This page will be updated when new stuff is added, and you can always help the Vault to grow by supporting The Rare Nasum - see more info at the bottom of the page.
