IN MEMORY OF MIESZKO TALARCZYK

Messages posted at nasum.com December 2005-January 2006

I miss you a lot, I can't believe it's been one year! I think about you every day!
- Anders, Örebro, SwedenI wish I could have met you Mieszko, you accomplished a lot in your short time here on earth. You inspired many with your music, through all the bands you were in, and your memory will always live on in your songs.

You are with us whenever we listen!

Paul Shaw


- Paul Shaw, New Glasgow, CanadaRest in Peace Mieszko!
No one will ever beat you in screaming!
I hope you still grinding in Heaven for the angels!

Grind your mind forever!

Peace & Love / Eternal Nasum-Fan Fredrik
- Fredrik Backlund, SwedenTime has passed and your memory lives strong!
Time has passed and we are Grinding on!
Peace!

- Colin, Melbourne - AustraliaMieszko, you inspired me to continue practice guitar and to study music. I was a big fan of you, and I always thought that you were a great roll model. You and all the work you have done was something very very great. Thank you for all the inspiration you have given me.
You were something special.


- Alex Wiman, Uppsala, SwedenR.I.P to one of the best musicians of his time. The fact that nasum is no more is a shame
- Mike Craig, Georgia, USAYour soul of grind will always remain in my mind.Rest In Peace my bro.Forever grind,forever blast
- Tiong, Johore MalaysiaNasum was where I got the name for my, now defunct, website (MalevolentScum.com). Nasum was the first band I had ever interviewed. I am still kicking myself for not asking Anders to get Mieszko to do the interview with him as well. I wish I would have had the chance to let him know how much I appreciated his work. I hope Anders got that message from me and was able to pass it along to Mieszko.

What Mieszko created with his bands and what it has brought to me, simply cannot be put into words. His music brought me joy, relieved stress, helped me through hard times, and opened my eyes to new thoughts.

My girlfriend bought me the "In Memory of Mieszko" t-shirt for Christmas. I made her give it to me early and I have been wearing it almost nonstop.

Not sure what else to say, but to say thank you to Mieszko for all that he has done for me. May you rest in peace.

- Andrew Sawtell, Lincoln, Nebraska, U.S.A.Mieszko, tu nous manques à tous... Nasum est, depuis que je le connais, mon groupe favoris. Je ne me ferai pas à l'idée que tout est fini depuis déjà un an. Le deuil va être difficile... Quoi qu'il en soit, fait-les mosher là où tu es, Mieszko, on ne t'oublie pas !
- Matt, Nancy, FranceCan't believe one year passed already. I remember vividly seeing you guys in Hasselt, Belgium together with Leng Tch'e on the "Grindshift" tour. Thanks for the great records & you'll sorely be missed
- Wouter Roemers, Hechtel, BelgiumRest in Peace Mieszko. You will be missed but your music is forever. I will always be a fan. Keep grinding in the next life
- Nick, United StatesRest in peace Mieszko
- Panu Posti, Helsinki, FinlandMieszko,thanks for all the great music you gave us.Allthough we never knew eachother in person,through your songs I feld you were a good man.Only a real artist (like you) can transmit something from his own deepest self through music.I was devastated by your death.
We will meet on the other side
- Johan, BelgiumMieszko, we miss you every day and will never forget the good times we shared. we think of you so often and it hurts to know that you will not come back forever. rest in peace brother!
- Daniel, Rostock, GermanyOne year ago, the music lost one of its genius... Miezsko Talarczyk...
Such as Chuck Schuldiner, the music will miss Miezsko as a great musicien with a fucking great talent in songwriting and as a innovator in the grindcore genre, and it lacks in this kind of music... Miezsko proved that you can play grindcore and be technical...

This december I lighted three candles : one for Chuck Schuldiner, one for Dimebag Darrell, and one for Miezsko Talarczyk. I'd call them "the three stars", three genius who passed away too early... but who all let an eternal print in music.

RIP Miezsko, hope you rest in peace (and you're making a fucking band up there with Doc, Chuck, Dimebag and others ! )
- Jay, Lyon, FranceHej Mieszko!

Ett år.....ett år har gått men jag saknar dig lika mycket som någonsin tidigare. Jag vet inte hur jag ska uttrycka mig för att få dig att förstå hur fruktansvärt tomt det blev när du lämnade oss. Hela min värld lamslog och det har inte släppt än. Du finns i mitt huvud helt tiden och jag får hela tiden reda på nya saker om dig som jag inte vetat tidigare. Det grämer mig något fruktansvärt att jag började lyssna på nasum så sent, det känns som om jag inte fick tilläckligt med tid tillsammans med er. Jag hann inte se er live och det är något som svider. Så sent som igår gjorde det ont i mig när jag fick höra om hur en person på min skola hade varit på samma bajamaja som du under Arvika-festivalen. Hurvida det är sant eller inte vet jag inte men jag blev ändå så avundsjuk att jag inte har kunna tänka på något annat sedan dess.
Det var bara för någon månad sedan som jag fick höra din "riktigta" röst för första gången. Det var en videoupptagning från P3 Guld, när ni tog emot priset. Det var stort, riktigt stort att få höra din "riktigt" röst. Jag kan inte riktigt sätta fingret på varför men känslan i kroppen var oslagbar.
Det är många saker jag skulle vilja tacka dig för, din musik naturligtvis men andra saker som inte är lika uppenbara kanske. Jag har alltid tyckt att Kent är ett riktigt riktigt bra band men jag har aldrig vågat berätta för någon att jag lyssnar på dem. För mig och mina vänner har det alltid varit metal som gällt och jag vågade inte ens tänka på deras reaktion om jag kom dragandes med att jag gillade Kent. Men i samband med din begravning fick jag reda på att ditt favoritband var Kent och då förändrades allt. Jag tror det var då som skygglapparna togs bort från mina ögon och jag insåg att man kunde tycka om olika typer av musik. Det var först då jag rakryggat kunde titta de där personerna i ögonen och säga att jag tyckte om Kent. Deras reaktion var precis den jag hade väntat mig men det spelade ingen roll längre, och den känslan var helt fantastisk. Du är min hjälte både som levande och som bortgången.
Så tack Mieszko, tack för allt! Jag kommer aldrig glömma dig
- Anton Andersson, Åmål, SverigeThanks for all the good times I have listening to your music. Only a few are given the talent to make extreme music with positive messages! You were one of them!
- Dr Q, BelgiumRest in peace and may your spirit live on in the memories of your loved ones.


This is for Mieszko, to one of my most respected musicians ever
- Oscar O, ÖdsköltWe'll miss you forever, our Grind Maestro
- Andres, Moscow, RussiaR.I.P Brother, i'm sure you're having a great time!
- Paride, Lugano, SwitzerlandWe miss you Mieszko.
Much respect
- Ale, ItalyNever forgotten- although we never met you your legacy, musical or otherwise, lives on. Trust you are having fun somewhere cooler than this earth bro
- Andy Williams, Auckland, New Zealand & Melbourne, AustraliaViele Menschen die leben, verdienen den Tod,
viele Menschen die sterben, verdienen das Leben.
Keiner von uns vermag allerdings, diesen Lauf der Dinge zu beeinflussen. Mieszko war jemand, der es verdient hat zu leben - für immer. NASUM wird mir fehlen, Mieszko wird mir fehlen. Jeder, der ihn live auf der Bühne erlebt hat, hat diese Energie gespürt, die er übermittelt hat. Mieszko wird immer weiterleben, solang irgendwo auf der Welt ein Lied von NASUM oder seinen anderen Projekten läuft. Wir werden seine Stimme noch Jahre hinweg hören und an ihn denken und ihn so in Erinnerung behalten, wie er war. Er hat dadurch geschafft, was viele Menschen etliche Zeiten lang versucht haben und ein Traum der Menschheit ist - er ist nun unsterblich und wird auf ewig leben. Wir sehen uns auf der anderen Seite
- Stefan Müller, Floß, GermanyMieszko
Lost yet never forgotten.
Forever, you will be the voice of grindcore.

- Kris Coon, Trollhättan, SwedenEnd of your mortal life set you as an immortal , with your music.
Grind in heaven brother!!!
- Tony from Igraved, Ceglie Messapica (Italy)Mieszko Talarczyk, jag hoppas att du fortfarande kan se oss alla. Se oss sakna och hedra det du gjort och sagt. Även om din plats på jorden inte längre existerar, så har du lämnat djupa spår hos mig och så många många andra. Jag önskade ibland att jag hann träffa dig mer, men livet är ju förbannat kort. Så, vi ses på andra sidan!

Med bästa hälsningar Fredrik
- Fredrik, StockholmGood fuckin' grindcore, man. Wicked sound. Rest in Peace dude
- Ric Marleau, Winnipeg, Manitoba, CanadaGrind those f@#kers up there!!!!!!

Grind your heaven Mieszko


- Giorgio, Italy, ComoMieszko's music has helped me out through alot. everytime i felt down on my luck i would put in Human 2.0 and it will get me to get up and take out my depression with force. Who knows how many times it has saved me from suicide. It has saved my life. Mieszko's memory will live with me forever. He was taken way before his time
- Fernando Deschapell, Miami, United Staes of AmericaI still can't believe it. I miss You so much although I even didn't know You. It's weird and sad that I never meet You in this life. Maybe it'll happen on the other side. I hope. RIP. Respect
- Piotrek, Krakow, PolandThank you being alive, Mieszko, if only for a brief moment. Your gifts will live on in the hearts of man. Mad love.

Brian P. Hoadley
- Brian P. Hoadley, Los Angeles USAMieszko och Nasum förde grindcore ett steg längre. Utan er skulle grindcore inte vara samma sak idag, det är bara att tacka och buga.

Mieszko kommer vara saknad av många, men också ihågkommen för musiken han och Nasum skapade. Han inspirerar och betyder fortfarande mycket för folk, även efter sin bortgång. Det är stort.


/Fredrik
- Fredrik Dahlfors, Stockholm, Swedenmieszko var utan tvekan en av de bästa låtskrivarna jag visste. det grämer mig något så helvetiskt då jag vet att jag aldrig kommer att få se honom genomföra en spelning med något av de geniala banden han var inblandad i. det känns svårt att göra ett kortfattat meddelande om en person (trots att jag aldrig träffat eller känt honom) eftersom det han var involverad i och gjorde i det som haft en så stor inflytelse och påverkan på mig och min vardag. hur som helst kommer det han gjort leva vidare genom inspelningar och texter.

all heder
- jonatan, mariehamn, finlandTHANKS FOR ALL THE THAT U HAVE GIFT TO US.GRIND OUR MIND.WILL MIST U FOREVER.PEACE&LOVE
- rudy, kuala lumpur malaysia...Now only your Music will talk to the future...

...Rest In Peace
- M.M., ItalyWe're always playing a Grind Finale for you, may your soul rest in peace man
- Jambra, Milan, ItalyFarewell Mieszko. A wave took your life away, the same wave of memories and thoughts that strikes back to us now
- Niccolò, RomeThere will never be a band like Nasum again. What will be done can only be close to the uniqueness that Nasum had. Mieszko has left with that special essence he had, the essence that was noticable in every piece of work he did. Nothing has been the same since december 2004, except for the pleasure while listening to the great music he contributed to. I hope you are somewhere as bright and as shiny as your own self. We miss you. Rest in peace
- nisa, istanbulMieszko, du har påverkat mig så mycket, både som människa och som musiker. Jag kände inte dig, men ibland känns det lite så. Hoppas att du har det bra på nåt annat ställe än detta.

Vila i frid
- Viktor, Huddinge, SwedenYour music is not dead!! RIP
- stefano, milan, italyNever knew you personally. Met you once when you sold the great "newspaper" Scenkross at Bergslagsrocken '94. You, and the entire band Nasum, have done a major imprint to the grindcore-scen, and I still think "Human 2.0" is a milepost within grindcore. The few concerts I had the pleasure to attend to were all truly great. Hope you had a great time to.
My thoughts goes out all near friends and loved ones. And of course my thoughts also goes out to all the other people who lost somebody or just had to experience this terrible tragedy.

"Only the good die young..."
- Freddan, Malmo, SwedenMissing you always...
Loving you forever...
Forgetting you never...
You're great...RIP
- Guido, Verona (Italy)Although the only connection to you was through being a fan of Nasum, I remember how sadness struck when hearing of you disappearing in Thailand. We've played a Nasum cover on several of our gigs the past year in honour of you and all the other victims of the Tsunami. Thank you for all the great music!

Anders, on behalf of She Said Destroy
- Anders Bakke, Oslo, NorwayI know, it's difficult not to be rethoric or kinda silly talkin' about the death of someone u didn't know or was a relative of yours, but i always loved Nasum's music, and i fell part of the great metal family around the world...rest in peace man
- Davide, L'Aquila - ITALY -I bet u put together a kickass band down there. RIP and thanx for all
- Hednar, KarlstadGrazie, Mieszko, la tua musica resterà per sempre
- Aristide Arcera., Casarano ItaliaGood bye man!
- Pietro, Verona, ItalyHar ingen aning vad jag ska skriva faktiskt..
Vill bara visa att jag bryr mig.
Har blivit väldigt inspirerad av dig som gitarrist och jag ser upp till dig som både musiker och producent.

Sup hårt i grind-himlen!!

- besa, italyHello Miezko

only 30 years old, but don't worry your life was great and now you are so better
take care and alwys smile friend
- Ruben Martell, Hermosillo, MexicoHann se Nasum live två ggr och det var fruktansvärt bra båfa gångerna. Är bara så fruktansvärt synd att man aldrig kommer få uppleva det. Det var en ganska konstig chock jag fick när min mor ringde från sitt jobb "Han den där från Nasum som du gillar är försvunnen i Thailand" jag trodde såklart att hon hade läst fel eller blandat ihop Nasum med någor annat band. men när hon visade tidningen med bilden på Mieszko när han sitter i Dillinger Escape Plan-tröjan förstod jag att det var sant. Trots att jag inte kände honom eller något så tar man ändå åt sig på nått konstigt sätt. Man tror inte att man ska det, men det gör man.

Just nu sitter jag förövrigt i min In memory of Mieszko t-shirt. Hoppas att det nya projktet blir ett riktigt band som en hyllning till Mieszko!
- Jimmu, HuskvarnaMieszko,
you'll be in our hearts and ears forever !!!!!
- Toni Hofmann, Traunreut, Germanyen framtida förebild för folk som gillar tyngd och fart och jävligt bra musik. R.I.P
- Charles Lang, GöteborgREST IN PEACE !!! Danke für deine Musik! Für mich bist du unsterblich!!!
- Lothar, Hamburg, GermanyI don't know what to say... I wish I were able to find the right words in order to express such a loss...
Just keep it real with Nasum stuff. Forever
- Pierrik, Lyon, FranceRest in peace, Mieszko.

May your musical legacy live on forever in fans, and your memory always remain with friends and family
- Matt Evans, Wisconsin, United StatesYou will ever be in my heart. Your music will be the soundtrack of my existence. Extreme music won't be the same without you.
R.I.P
- Eric, Milano, Italy26th of December, 2004 was a shocking day to all the world.
Very many people died in that tsunami, and I was relieved when I heard that none of my relatives or other familiar people weren't there.
But one day later, my friend said me "The mainman of Nasum is missing in Thailand". I went in a total shock. Seriously, my head was all messed up.
Mieszko was for me, maybe the greatest musician idol in those days. For several days I hoped for all of my heart, that they would find him alive. But after a week, i lost my hope. And I cried.
My idol, the leader of one of my favorite bands, the mighty Nasum, was now gone. I was gonna never see them live again, never to hear their new album.
Mieszko, I really miss you. Hope you're in a better place now doing the music, that used to be, and still is very inspiring and powerful.
You had your strong thoughts on this society, and they will remain strong in the music of Nasum, which is played forever after your death.
Rest In Peace
- Aapo, Espoo, FinlandRest In Peace Mieszko. You will live for ever in the memory of everyone
- Mathieu, Saint-Tite des Caps, CanadaRIP Mieszko, you were an amazing musician and you will be missed
- Malendras, Staten Island, USACiao Mieszko!
Sono e saro' sempre un tuo grande ammiratore....
grazie di tutto...grazie per i bellissimi dischi che ci hai regalato...senza te e i Nasum,il grind non sara' piu' quello di prima...

- dario, milano,italyMieszko, your music has gotten me through some very rough times. I think that "Shift" is the greatest grindcore record ever made, and will probably never be surpassed. I wasn't even aware of your passing until months afterward, and I am still shocked at the senselessness of your death. Thank you for the years of music. You are greatly missed
- Dan, Boston, MAThanks for opening my eyes again, and for inspiration and encouragement
- Oula Kerkelä, Lappeenranta, FinlandYOUR MUSIC WAS GREAT!!!! YOUR BRUTALITY WILL BE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS!!
- IHateU from SoulBleeder, BeneventoOne year it's almost passed from that fuckin' ugly day, many things are happened and many others things will come but your memory and your fantastic music remains in memory of all us, you've given a very lot to "scene".. sorry but other doesn't come in my mind.
Rest In Peace bro
- Leonardo Gabiati, Genzano di Roma, ItalyMieszko, you'll always the remembered as one of the greatest ever... Above everything else as the amazing musician that had a huge impact on my life. RIP
- José Rodrigues, Lisbon, PortugalI knew Mieszko through his music only, and on that basis I can only guess at the quality of his personality and character. To think that I, a 40 year old man in the suburbs of New England have come to appreciate his musical gifts, is a statement on the powerfully positive effect he has likely had on many others.

I believe that people move on to a wonderful place when they die; in the meantime, his spirit will live on in the very special music he created for us.

RIP Mieszko
- Tom Levenson, Amesbury, Massachusetts USAHey,
I just stumbled upon this site
And downloaded a few samples
Listened to the music and heared it was real good
And then I read about Mieszko and his tragic death.
Just looking at his pictures tells me what a good and great guy he must have been!
And reading Jon's memorials learned me even more about Mieszko.
I hope that wherever he is, he is happy and remember his great friends, because I know that they will allways remember him!
Peace to you Mieszko,
Peace to you
- Stéphan Schamp, Massemen, BelgiumIt's hard to imagine that only 365 days ago on December 26th, only half a year after finishing in my eyes what is the greatest Nasum album, Mieszko was victim to a tragedy that cut his life short. Looking back on all that was accomplished by Nasum and Mieszko over the years brings a tear to my eye, ME, someone who has never even been in the same continent where Mieszko had lived. Grind just won't be the same without him. With an Inhale and an Exhale, I say Rest in Peace Mieszko Talarczyk
- Jon Long, Mendham, New Jersey, USAI remember around this time last year , a lot of people on this web site waiting for some news about him and i was anxiously waiting every single day and checking to see what would happen. I know its not very uplifting but i just wanted to show how much everyone was caught up in this time period and not knowing what the outcome would be.
I just got the grind finale cd and its gorgeous everyone should get it and what great work. To all his friends and famillies and past band members and especially his girlfriend , he was a great inspiration to a lot of bands and fans beloved by everyone who knew him and a great guitarist.
Isn't that a great way to be remembered .
rest in peace mieszko.diamond darrel and SRV



- elias kostolias, st-hubert,quebecMieszko,

- Matt Mitchell, Denver, CO USARest in Peace and see you on the other side.

"What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
goes away
in the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I would let you down
I would make you hurt"

("Hurt" by Trent Reznor, NIN)
- Patrick S., GermanyMieszko's only live show I ever saw made me feel like I had only part lived my life. I wanted to do more and have done every moment since. Memory will never be forgotten and I will always remember what he taught me however didnt even know what he did.
Huw
- Huw Morgan, Cardiff, Wales, UkI only discovered Nasum a short while ago, started reading the songs, and establishing an opinion...
It's just wrong, when the man who's words you so much identified with, you find was taken at his prime.

Your voice is heard and appreciated,
And I sorely regret never meeting the one behind it.

Rest in peace, Mieszko Talarczyk
- Ofer Freedman, IsraelThanks Mieszko, your music will always remain in my extreme heart.

- Riku Meriläinen, Nummela, FinlandMieszko är en av de största rockstjärnorna som kommit från Sverige. Han var en fantastisk låtskrivare, sångare, producent och gitarrist. Även om jag inte kände honom personligen så verkar även ha varit en fantastik människa. Jag saknar honom

DAN
- Dan Fieldmouse, Clitheroe, UKRest in peace you grind god!
- Martin, GothenburgWe booked nasum near Marseille in november 2004.
It was an amazing show, great band, great people...

To hear the death of mieszko a month later truly saddened me.
I'd like to say, in the name of the whole several bleeds records team that promoted that show back in 2004, that he is missed, as a man, as a musician, a friend.

Keep on rocking Mieszko, and know that you aren't forgotten.

Kenny And the whole SBR team
- Kenny @ SBR, Marseille, FranceI saw Nasum in 2004 and Mieszko was one of the most impassioned frontmen I have ever witnessed. Both you and your talent will be sorely missed and I truly regret not having the balls to come up and say hi. I hope somewhere you're still grindin' on

Tack vare dig har jag i alla fall börjat mangla i ett Grind-band, legenden ska leva vidare!
Vila i frid Mieszko
- Joel Söderberg, Nyköping, SwedenGrind on brother, we'll miss you
- Bon, CaliforniaRIP Mieszko
Alla har sin tid här på jorden, tyvärr blev Mieszkos kortare än den borde ha varit.
Mieszko och Nasum har för alltid en del i mitt hjärta!
- Daniel, Luleå, SwedenMieszko...god has made a big mistake to let you die! I will meet you again upstairs
- Maarten, De Rijp (netherlands)One year has past, and still it makes me shiver when thinking about the fact that a perfectly healthy young man like Mieszko (a great man and a great artist) is overthrown by something as a tsunami.
This makes me wonder if we don't fear the wrong things in life.
But I senceerly hope for the family and loved ones of Mieszko that they can find peace with this loss, one year after the terrible tragedy, though it might be hard.

I can't immagine how it must be like to lose someone close to me.. and hope I won't have to experience it quite soon, but losing Mieszko sure gave me a reality check.
I guess I kind of figured I could lose someone perfectly healthy to..
But we're not living in anticipation or fear of death.. we're living because life is worth living.

I still freeze up when thinking about (not only Miesko) all the victims of that dark period in history..

I wish the best to all of you who loved him and for all of those who will miss his political statements he declared while writing and singing for Nasum.

- Elis Olandersson, MölnlyckeThanks for the inspiration, the music and the memories. Grind on brother
- W.ó.B, Dublin.Mieszko Talarczyk, you were such a wonderful guitarist and an amazing person. Nothing can ever replace what you've done, and nothing can really ease the pain. You'll always be remembered by my friends and me over here in the USA, and your spirit lives on whenever we play your music. Let's go Grind
- Zach Willis, Dayton, Ohio, USAMieszko, you were a great musician and it seems unfair for you to go as early in your life as you did.

You will be remembered
- Christopher Peake, Helsinki, Finlanda grinding legend gone by too fast,may the legacy live on...

- Micke Meller, Örebro Sverigeyou, and the guys in Nasum gave me a new meaning of music.
thanks for all the impressions!

p.s.: hope you have a nice sight up there. :)
- gemby, Miskolc, HungaryEven though I didn't know you Mieszko, you reached me with your unique music and your sincerity. When I read you passed away in Thaïland, I was really moved, I thought it wasn't possible.
All we have from you now is your music, and it reminds us of you each time we listen to it.

May you rest in peace
- Adrien, FranceDied in Thailand in one of the biggest disasters of mankind. Forever missed, never forgotten. Rest In Peace Mieszko Talarczyk
- Fredrik, KarlstadMieszko, you have created music and art that has impacted me and been very important to me in my life. While this might come off as sounding like a rather typical sentiment of a fan to a musician, I hope you know it's something much more... The songs you have created, have been with me through some of the more fomulative years of my life, the ups and downs of teenage years, and difficult decisions while growing older, Nasum has always been something very special to me and will always be something very special to me. I can never thank you enough
- Stacy, Walla Walla, USAmieszko, jag minns när jag fick sms:et som berättade att du var saknad i thailand. då befann jag mig på en strand i moçambique & tittade ut över indiska oceanen. det kändes så overkligt att det lugna havet framför mig var samma hav som hade tagit ditt liv.
ville bara säga att dina avgrundsvrål alltid kommer att vara en av de saker som driver mig framåt & får mig att stå ut med livets jävligheter. sempre no meu coração.

- johanna, stockholmMieszko, may there be peace on your soul.
long live the revolution
- Santeri Volanen, Tampere, FinlandKeep rocking on the other side, your legacy here lives on
- Skott, CanadaDear Mieszko, I don`t konow what to say. My heart begins to cry when I`m thinking of you, but when i hear your music i get filled with happiness. I wished I would have met you. All the people who love you become one family. It isn`t important where you are now. Everyone thinks of you. Even it you`ll stay in our hearts forever!

Thanks and love from claudia
- claudia, zürich,switzerlandVi kommer alla att sakna dig Mieszko.
Ingen av oss kommer glömma bort dig. För du kommer alltid att vara med oss fans och din närmaste,
genom den musik du gjorde med dom andra i Nasum och i Krigshot till exempel,
och alla minnen du har gett oss.

Varje gång jag känner sig nere så blir jag alltid glad igen efter att jag har lyssnat igenom en av era skivor. Går inte att beskriva hur mycket eran musik betyder för mig.
Jag/ Vi glömmer dig aldrig.
ALDRIG!

Vila i fred Mieszko.

- Arska, FinlandKiitos, tarjoan kaljat kun tavataan
- Ilmari, FinlandHey Mieggs.. From both starting out playing together back in the "Young Eagles" days with Leslie, then crossing paths again a decade or so later down the track, I just want to raise my glass to you and say thanks for all of the memories I have that you've been a part of.. everything from just walking home together talking shit, introducing me to Diablo II, haha, the "SuperStar Destroyer" recording sessions with Genocide ( I don't think Soundlab has, or ever will again, be witness to such a decadent few weeks! ) and everything else inbetween. The void you left in the music world & in the hearts of family & friends can never be filled, and you'll never be forgotten... but despite all the hurt, everytime we talk about you, it's always with a smile. Thank you my friend!

- Stefano, Firenze, ItalyMieszko, when I heard of you missing last year in the Tsunami I couldn't believe it. I kept wishing that you'd just turn up somewhere completely fine...ready to come home and continue the Grind Machine you created. Unfortuantely, as we all know that didn't happen. I don't know the extent of the story but from what Anders has said about the stories he's heard from Emma, your a hero. I was VERY pleased to hear that.

Mieszko, I miss you, as do we all. I'll see you on the other side brotha.

Rest in peace !
- diego ionGrind, Le locle, SwitzerlandI saw Nasum for the first time at the Creepy Crawl in 1999 on the Contamination v3.0 tour in St. Louis, MO. Mieszko was on fire that night as was the rest of the band...he had an unbelieveable stage presence. I will truly miss the Nasum grind and the man who helped create it. God bless you Mieszko and God bless the band. Good luck to all the survivors and everyone please take care.

Cheers,

- Pisch, Marseille , FranceI can't quite comprehend how quickly this last year has gone. Mieszko was cruelly taken away from the metal community and is still sorely missed. Here's to an amazingly talented man and to all others, both tourists and locals alike who lost their lives and livelyhoods in this worthless tragedy

Rest in Peace x

- Grulle, ÅlandMieszko, du betydde mer än nån skulle tro för mig. Du fick mig bort från dråger, och fick mig till och bränna för det jag gör, dvs grind.

Om det inte hadde varit för dig hadde jag sittit och rusat bort mitt liv. Men äfter att jag hörde wrath har jag värkligen förändrat hela min livstil.

Så jag tackar dig för allt.

Vil i fred mieszko.

Du kommer inte att bli glömd
- Christoffer Sandström, Tönsberg, Norwayfor a man i never met, it's strange really, but i still think of Mieszko everyday. if i ever have a son, i will give him that very name. and as for Anders, Urban, Jon, and Jesper, i will keep you gentelmen in my prayers for life. and it is my hope that the 4 of you will continue to make wonderful music. nasum was ALWAYS a team effort--you all have many more great albums to make ahead of you regardless of what banner they are under.

long live nasum, long live grind.

I've been following the scene and have been a extreme fan of Nasum and many other grind bands. As of tomorrow December 26th I not only will be wearing my Inhale, Exhale long sleeve, but will only be listening to Nasum all day in respect. I never had a chance to see nasum live, but I know it would have been amazing! We'll never forget you.

Mannen som fick mig att återupptäcka grindens magiska egenskaper en, av alkohol dimhöljd, dag i Hultsfred år 2000.
Vattnet släckte många liv den där dagen och man kan bara önska att Mieszko och alla andra har det bra vart de än är.

Ni finns kvar i våra tankar.

- Satoko, fukuoka City,JapanI can't believe it has been a year already. I spoke to Mieszko on several occasions for my publication and it was obvious with each chat -- and as each year went by in the music business -- that his profile was on the rise. His role in extreme music was unique and serving a purpose

It was indeed a sad day for all fans of extreme music when we lost him. R.I.P Mieszko

You did so much and give people, not at least to me, something to enjoy and love.
It’s even hard to belive that your gone now, one year later. But I’m happy about that I got one moment to shakehand with you after a consert.
You will always be remeberd as a good person.

- Georgie Fenton, Cork, IrelandHey all.

I dont know the rights words for this moments..

I'M MISSING YOU MIESZKO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Dominik, Rastatt , GermanyEven one year after this tragedy I cannot find any words to describe my feelings about this loss... Rest in Peace!
- Phil D., Heilbronn, GermanyHey.
This feels really weird to do..but I have to say this.

On 24-10-2004 I was going to a concert of Hoobastank in 013, Tilburg. Not knowing that Nasum was playing as well.. At that time, I didn't even know who Nasum was. At one point, you guys arrived in a little white van. We we're suprised a little bit about who were all coming out. Wondering who these guys were. One of the stood out for my opinion, and that was Mieszko. In one minute time, he looked at me, smiled and said hi. I did the same thing back. And now... I can't stop playing that little frame in my head... I can't forget about it. I put a picture of Mieszko in my profile at vampirefreaks.com (I'm Sister_Nightfall there) and it's never going to leave. I started to listen to Nasum. The music helped out with problems, and when I knew that Mieszo was found but dead...I couldn't stop crying for a long time.

Last summer we almoust went to Sweden... My parent's were ok with the fact that we would go visit Orebrö cause I wanted to go to Mieszko's grave so bad.. To tell him the story I'm telling now. But we ended up not going cause we didn't have enough money.

I'm burning a candle all day for him. Further I hope you all can find peace and strength to go on without him. Good luck with everything for the rest of all your lives.

Du var, och kommer alltid vara bäst
- Daniel, OskarshamnHi Mieszko :(
- Giuseppe, Naples, ItalyHej Mieszko! Vi träffades endast ett par gånger och jag tror inte att du vet vem jag är. Ändå kändes det fullständigt overkligt när informationen om att du var saknad efter tsunamin nådde mig. Jag var länge övertygad om att du skulle dyka upp, mest för att det kändes som om du hade en hel massa kvar att ge. Nu blev det inte så tyvärr, men ditt minne lever i allra högsta grad kvar via ditt avtryck i musikhistorien. Sista gången jag pratade med dig var på en spelning på Kelly's i Örebro (tror det var Peepshows) och jag hamnade bredvid dig i baren. Jag frågade hur det gick med inspelningen av nya Nasumplattan och du svarade bara helt kort att den redan var klar, tog din öl och gick därifrån med ett finurligt leende på läpparna. Den bilden har stannat kvar.

RIP Mieszko
- Tomas Lundström, Landsbro, SverigeMieszko may you rest in peace. GRIND ON!!!!!!!!!!

Rest In Peace
- Burak, TurkeyHey Mieszko,
Your music means so much to me. From the first time I heard Inhale/Exhale I knew Nasum was something special. I will never let the Nasum name die. You are the greatest. I never knew you personally. But, through your music it feels like I did. R.I.P. my friend. You and Nasum will never be forgotten.
Grind Forever
- Anthony DeSino, Wanye,NJ USASå oerhört tragiskt. 1år sen det skedde men det är fortfarande lika tråkigt och synd att jag aldrig kommer få höra en ny nasumlåt eller se nasum live.

we are so sorry about this ..

# Grind Our Mind #
- murat, Istanbul,TurkeyI don't really know WHAT to write, but I know and I feel, I MUST write. Already one year since this terrible catastrophy which as as always hit those who are the poorest and those who just want to live in peace and try to have a break from their stress at home. Second cathegory was Mieszko.

Yesterday my band played a small gig in our hometown and as there were many people I know i just started to cheer for Mieszko and everyone of the 120 people who were there tuned in. It was fantastic, because THIS proves that he will never be forgotten. Never. What he did for the fans of (extreme) music is far beyond imagination.

So this is all I had to say. He will never be forgotten, that's for sure. And it is great how much Anders cares for the rememberance of him. Thank you, this is what proves that you are a real friend. But most important to me is the following: His friends, his family, his girlfriend, everyone around, they need strength. I surely cannot imagine how hard this day is for you, but my thoughts and my best wishes, they are with you.

Lots of love,
Christoph
- Christoph, Munich, GermanyMin tanke går till Mieszkos familj och framför allt till hans flickvän som måste ha en fruktansvärd tid och till bandet Nasum som förlorat sin frontfigur!
Rake care!

- Brittmarie Lundmark, SverigeTo one of the greatest leadsingers of all time:

Rest In Peace!

- Henrique Meireles, Salvador, Bahia, BRAZILR.I.P. Mieszko

Can't believe it's been one year already. You truly were an amazing songwriter and you wrote some of the best grindcore songs of all time.

Anders, keep it up and stay strong. Heard your new songs and let me tell you that they sound very promising. Can't wait to hear them with vocals.

Oh, one last thing. I got my copy of Grind Finale and I'd like to say thank you for making such a good tribute to Nasum. It was very interesting reading the story behind the recordings and the old songs are quite good also!


Once again, R.I.P. Mieszko
- Samuel Dufour, Montreal, CanadaI still remember when Mieszko signed my cd the first time I saw him in the year 2000 in my city...for me was a really surprising band and I was impressed by them...
...after the years passed I could go to France to Fury Fest to see them again...and some moths later than that this disaster happens...
I just want to say you are not dead in our hearths
Your music will sound for centuries
Rest In Peace
- xmonox, Sevilla,SpainNasum is a great influence to me, I'm play bass in the band EXPOSE YOUR HATE and our debut-cd HATECULT was masterized by Mieszko. We dedicate this work to him and never will forget your music and contribution to our music!! Hail Mieszko!!!
- Claudio Slayer, Natal - BrazilI have to say that the news of your death hit me harder than anything I can remember. I still feel a void knowing I will never see you live or have a chance to meet you and it hurts . You were the most insipring musician I've ever had the pleasure of listening to, and I want you to know everyday I think about what you have done for me. You are why I grind today. This is the first thing in years that brings a tear to my eye, and I just want you to know that you touched me and I love you and everything you have ever done, and I promise I will see you and pay my respects personally before I die. You are the man and you will never leave my heart. Everything I have ever done has and always will be dedicated to you and your memory. This will always hurt but I will be here every year to do this... Thank you for everything you have done for me. You and your music make me a stronger better person and I will never forget you....... RIP my friend

- Michael Curbo, McCrory, United Statesmi ingles no en muy fluido por lo tanto escribire en español lo mas accesible posible:
adoro el metal, adoro esta banda, adoro a sus integrantes, y en especial me senti y me siento identificado con Mieszko desde que vi por primera vez sus videos, su carisma y su personalidad lo dicen todo. No lo conoci ni lo vi en vivo pero me parecio la persona mas autentica, sin pretensiones ni poses, y asi deberian ser todos.
Me dolio en el alma su ida, y a un año de este tragico suceso me uno a los miles de fans y amigos, su musica es su legado y siempre estara con nosotros mas alla de la eternidad.

- Johan Suikki, Vännäs, SwedenNo matter how fast time flies, yesterday was hard to swallow. A year has gone since Mieszko left us, and I'm still waiting for news denying reality. And even thought my inner self knows for sure they are never coming, it seems hope blinds all my thoughts and wants something different as an answer. Nasum & Genocide SS are still played hard on a daily basis, but yesterday was so different. Helvete sounded so different no matter how many times I've heard it before. It touched my soul deeply. And with that feeling that invade everything through music, it was obvious what I should do: Raise my fist high and yell aloud: Mieszko FOREVER!!! We'll never forget!!! HAIL NASUM 6 Genocide SS!!!!!!!!!!!! We all miss you

- Can, Ýstanbul TurkeySedan jag kom hem på julafton har jag funderat på vad jag ska skriva här. Vad ska man skriva om en person som man aldrig träffat men som man beundrar väldigt mycket.
Precis som folk säger att de vet precis var de var när de fick reda på att JFK och Olof Palme skjutits så kan jag berätta precis var jag var när jag fick reda på vad som hänt i Thailand och sen även vad som hänt Mieszko.
Jag var på jobbet och jag kom tillbaka från lunchen dagen efter flodvågskatastrofen då jag mötte min far i korridoren och han berättade att han läst på aftonbladet.se att sångaren i ett hårdrocksband saknades. När jag gick in på sidan och såg att det var Mieszko kunde jag inte tro att det var sant. Jag såg ju Mieszko och Nasum bara två månader tidigare och de var odödliga. I en månad besökte jag nasum.com varje dag ihop om att Anders skulle sätta rubriken ”Mieszko found alive and well!” på sidan. Jag kan tänka mig att Anders aldrig velat skriva nånting så mycket som han ville skriva just de orden då.
Mieszko, vi tänker på dig varje dag!
- Richard, Hultsfred, SwedenNoone knows what tomorrow brings
Not even the next minutes

You continue to live in peoples hearts, and in the music you created Mieszko. That's a comfort for us, and I hope, a comfort for you too!

- Hannes Elliott, Kristianstad, Swedenhello,
the 26 december is my birthdate and especially this day I though about mieszko. I always can't realize that it's happened! Why?
But...I know that you're always here for me...for us...You'll always be in my mind when I play music...and it's you who you give me the power when I'm on stage with my band!

Rest In Peace

Always in my heart

- Drozdzu, Lodz, PolandWhen someone ask me who's the best shouter I answer "mieszko" everytime.
Mieszko is one of the best shouter I've ever heard..
It still gives me the creeps when I visit the nasum homepage and see his picture and the date of his death.

We won't forget Mieszko .. !

Dennis from germany

- Dennis, Flensburg,GermanyJag lärde aldrig känna dig så jätteväl, men såpass så man hälsade på varandra iaf. Du gav mig ett starkt intryck redan från första gången vi möttes och jag har aldrig nånsin träffat på en starkare personlighet. Jag har fått mycket inspiration från dig och Nasum i mitt eget spelande av musik, och det är jag enormt tacksam för.
Tack så mycket Mieszko, din själ kommer alltid att finnas där när man behöver den
- Cody Cruz(Andreas), ÖrebroHope you have fun wherever you are, and if by any chance you see my father, say hello to him from me!
- Maxime Leclerc, Quebec City, CanadaI saw you play the other year. You was unreal. a great inspiration, I didnt know much about you before i went to see you play but afterwards i did my research, little to late, your playing will be missed and i hope your playing up there in the heavens. my feelings go out to all those who knew your personally. RIP, stay heavy
- Ash Cotterill, Nottingham, EnglandR.I.P, Mieszko. You'll be always in our memories!

- Nazarul Abdullah, Kuala Lumpur,MalaysiaRest in peace my brother, you will be greatly missed by all that understood you.. You will always keep on rocking in my world.. You gave me the need for grind back, and I will always be thankfull for that..Yours sincerely Jimmy Hansen!!1
- Jimmy Hansen, Aabenraa, Denmarkstill no proper words to describe this surrealistic disaster.
Wherever you are, take care and keep grinding
- eelco, den bosch - netherlandsi never had the chance to meet Mieszko having only found Nasum over the last few years, but i always followed what was going on with the band via the web and through word of mouth. the music you all created means a lot to me and my friends and when we first heard of Mieszko's passing we were all deeply saddened to have lost someone who brought us so much happiness through the music he created with Nasum.

a few of us held our own memorial for him just before christmas where those amongst us lucky enough to have met him shared their stories whilst we listened to Nasum and drank to mourn the loss of someone who meant a hell of a lot to us.

my condolences go out to Mieszko's family and friends who new him best. we all miss him

Mieszko Talarczyk - gone but NEVER forgotten
- Tim Needham, Brighton, EnglandLong time to remedy and long time to you memory.
Sorry I test English E level
- Johant 666, Phuket - ThailandI hate that fucking wave! And I really miss Mieszko. Even if I'm only 16 years old, I really do. I hope that you all will meet him in your life after death! And I hope I'll do it too. I love your music, guys. Hope that you could do any come-back if Mieszko would come back to life!
Kisses and hugs
Molina
- Molina Engblom, Sverige in FalunThanks you for all
- victor, FranceWe miss you Mierre!
- K, SwedenHi Mieszko,
It's already been a year know, it's really hard to believe. I remember the first time I saw the message posted that you were missing. My heart really skipped a beat, and I really felt scared. Now it's been a year, and the same impact still remains. I really can't believe it. You were such a great guitarist, you really knew how to write riffs. I even tried to play some of them myself!
I preordered my copy of "Grind Finale" today, and it really hit me, "Wow, this is the last the world will hear of Nasum, one of the greatest grind bands ever.", and it made me feel sad. I must say, "Grind Finale" looks wonderful, and it's a really great testament to you, Mieszko.
I will never forget you, and neither will the world. Thanks for all the wonderful music and thanks for being so cool in your lifetime.

NASUM FOREVER!!!

Cheers.

- Mike Gore, Peterborough. EnglandWhile I had been into metal for many years before I heard Human 2.0 (my first exposure to Nasum), Nasum pushed me into truly appreciating more extreme forms of metal.

Nasum will always be one of my favorite bands of all time.

Thank you Mieszko for all you contributed to the world of metal
- Jim Sheldon, Manchester, New Hampshire, USAIts very sad that the Grind scene, Family and his Band Mates have lost a Member,Friend and such Great Musician and Producer.
I´m a big Nasum fan and i preferd to have an other cd than the Grind Finale but God deceided by the other way.

- Steve Schmid, Augsburg GermanySitter nu vid datorn och lyssnar på två låtar från "Grind Finale", "A Civil Critque" och "The Unfathomable Situation" och ryser med välbehag och sådan enorm saknad för dig Mieszko. Jag lovar, du hade mer än älskat "Grind Finale". Och absolut ska man själv inhandla skivan. Lika mycket som vi alla älskar och respekterar dig där du nu befinner dig.
Kärlek och Respekt till grindcorens eviga fader och egna gud; Mieszko Talarczyk. R.I.P

- Johan Björmander, Sverigehej! jag visste inte så mycket om nasum innan vågen kom, det var tyvärr då jag börja lyssna på er och då jag blev förälskad i vad jag hörde. "grind finale" är ett måste så du kan räkna med att jag köper ett ex i alla fall.
det är starkt av dig/er att kunna fortsätta att skriva nyheter osv. dock ganska tråkigt att man inte får höra mer av er, men jag förstår varför.

var starka nu! jag önskar dig/er all lycka!

M.v.h Robin
- Robin, Kristianstad
Allvarligt talat,
jag vet inte vad det är med mig.
Jag har aldrig i mitt liv träffat dig Mieszko -
men det känns som en så stor tomhet efter dig.
Jag vet inte varför.
Kanske är längtan och tanken på att jag en dag Skulle Få träffa dig och skaka din hand för stark.
Nu får jag inte känna så mer - men jag gör det ändå.
Det går inte en dag utan att jag tänker på dig - Krigshot och Nasum - eller vågen.
Saknar dig på håll.

Din trogne David Söderberg.


- David Söderberg, I'm really2 missed his personality even i'vent meet him directly. But after i read a lot of lyrics of his songs, its makes me aware bout all things happen in this world. You're my really teacher, Mieszko. Not just your vocal which really totally makes me want to hang my head, but your so brilliant. I really missed a figure like him. Hail to the Mighty trully grind core... NASUM

Thanks for all what you did in the past. You were the leader of the best Grindcore band in the world.
You'll always be in our memories. Good luck for your journey. Your fans think to you, your family, your friends, and the other members of Nasum.
Heil Nasum, Heil Mieszko ; )

- WintersForge, Baltimore USATAL VEZ NO ENTIENDAN MI IDIOMA, PERO LO ESTOY ESCRIBIENDO POR QUE REALMENTE NASUM CAMBIO MI VIDA. YO ANTES TOCABA EN UNA BANDA DE NU METAL Y NO ME SENTIA BIEN TOCANDO ESE TIPO DE MUSICA. (REALMENTE ME SENTIA UN PUTO TOCANDO ESO). Y FUE CUANDO ESCUCHE A BRUJERIA CUANDO CAMBIO MI ESTILO DE TOCAR... PERO FUE CUANDO ESCUCHE A NASUM CUANDO DEJE TODO Y ME DEDIQUE AL GRIND POR COMPLETO. REALMENTE SIENTO QUE MIESZCO HAYA MUERTO, PERO TODAVIA HAY GENTE QUE ESCUCHA SU MUSICA Y ESO HACE A LA GENTE GRANDE Y MIESZCO PARA MUCHAS PERSONAS SERA INMORTAL (PARA MI LO ES)...
