Pre-order the Domedagen EP!

Pre-order of the nasum.com edition of the "Domedagen" gate folded 7" EP on white vinyl is now available. The total edition is 100 copies but only 45 of these are available for sale at this time and most likely forever. This means the supply is VERY limited and that also means that a certain amou...

Domedagen reissued as a 7" EP on Record Store Day

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Nasum's one and only demo - "Domedagen". This demo was our forth recording, and although it might seem slightly strange to release a demo just all of a sudden, it was all Regurgitate's fault. They did a tape, so we did one. The fourteen songs included t...

Grind Finale vinyl re-issue released

Back in 2006 I was approached by a guy called Mike from Unrest Records in Canada. He wanted to do a vinyl release of the "Grind Finale" compilation, which had been released on a 2xCD in digibook by Relapse. I was reluctant at first, because the main sources of the material in the compilation wer...

The Grand Finale is imminent

Remember about a year ago, when Nasum announced its definitive farewell? 45 shows around the world later, the final 17 concerts are imminent. Please observe: These shows are truly the very last shows this legendary band will ever do, and if there was ever a moment for a band to go out hard...

Ticket links for the European tour

We've added ticket links to all the shows (except the one in Gothenburg) to the tour dates page. Check them out and buy tickets! We will in the nearest future announce additional support acts, but at the moment we can confirm that Massgrave (Canada) will join the bill at Pumpehuset in Copenhagen,...

Nasum teams up with Black Breath for the final tour

All grind things come to an end… For Nasum, 2012 is the year when history finally catches up and makes amends with the present. And as the Swedish grindcore behemoth is coming up to around half way of what is its final farewell world tour, the final leg of the most intense, unruly and cathartic tour...

A Tribute to Nasum is released

Today I got my copies of the Nasum tribute released by Power-It-Up. I am not going to review the album but what I can say is that is a sort of surreal feeling that goes through my head when I listen to it. It's 50-odd songs that I have heard a million times - in the rehearsal room, live on stage, on...

The Nasum/Napalm Death split is finally out! Updated merch!

The long awaited, and most likely final Nasum release - the split picture disc 12" with Napalm Death is finally out! It's a very limited edition of 500 copies (at least in this first pressing, unclear if there will be more) and I have a limited amount for sale right now. The picture disc looks re...

New edition of Grind Finale on the way

A new edition - or a second printing, if you will - of "Grind Finale" is on the way on CD through Relapse Records. This is not a remastered edition and there's no additional material added to release, it's just a second printing. One big difference is that the packaging is different. The luxurio...

Coldworker CD, new t-shirts and zip hood

The mailorder is now completed with the CD version of "Rotting Paradise" along with two brand new t-shirt design and a kick ass zip hood for your pleasure. Remember that the vinyl deal with the two LP's for a really good price and the 50% discounted old t-shirts are still available as well....

Buy the new Coldworker LP now!

The new Coldworker album "Rotting Paradise" is to be released this coming weeks, but you can already buy the LP (CD not available yet) from the Nasum shop. The LP comes in a glorious gatefold cover and is available in three colors: yellow, red and white with red splatter. All colors are equally r...

More info about the Napalm Death split

Here's what I know so far: • It will probably be released in April by FETO, with distribution by Cargo. • There will be 1000 copies made. • It will most likely be called "SOS Japan - Grind Kaijyu Attack!" • Napalm Death has some killer artwork on their side... ...and so does Nasum. Below is...

Announcing: Napalm Death split + "Doombringer"

So how about this - there will be a new Nasum album in 2008! Yes, a final album and then nothing more. It's the live recording from Japan 2004 that has been in the archives for quite a while (first mentioned in this blog (look in the archives for more info)). It's a little bit confusing but I'll ...

Shitload of t-shirts available now!

So, after many months the Nasum warehouse (i.e. my apartment!) is stocked with freshly printed merchandise! This might be the last "official" merch stock ever (who knows?) so get your gear while supplies last... No new designs but three new "versions" of old stuff. The "Recycle" design (used as a...

Anders performing Nasum song with Misery Index

During the recently finished European tour with Misery Index, Dew-Scented and Coldworker, I performed the Nasum song "Digging in" twice live with Misery Index (who has covered it on the LP and Japanese version of their latest album "Discordia"). The second (and best time) is now available on YouT...

New t-shirts available in July!

After a long time of t-shirts draught I have decided to do another printing. The t-shirts will be available in July after I return from the Coldworker tour starting tomorrow. There will not be any new designs, but a few surprises anyway. Just wait and see... Relapse is doing a new Nasum design...

Interview series about drums at nasum.com

I've started a little interview series with my fellow death metal and grindcore drummers out there in my blog. It might be a little bit out of the ordinary to have an interview series at a band website but what the fuck, it's good stuff. The first interview is with Tobias Gustafsson of Vomitory. ...

Fourth and final pre-order shipping

The fourth and final shipping of the pre-ordered "Grind Finale" has been done. Check out the merch mailing blog for your name. There are a few copies left and I've just sent out an email to some on waiting list. There will most likely be another mailing to the waiting list soon. When I am ulti...

I've shipped the third batch of "Grind Finale" LP's. Check out the merch mailing blog to see if you'll get your copy now or later. Their will be a fourth and final shipping this weekend and then I will get to the waiting list one at the time. I have very few copies left so chances are that the la...

Shipping more "Grind Finale"

I am back from the Coldworker tour and have just now sent away another batch of LP's. Check out the merch mailing blog to see if you'll get your copy now or later. I will continue to pack and ship all the preorders during this week. The heavier packages are a little bit trickier to ship than the ...

Shipping

Today, a truck came with my copies of "Grind Finale", and luckily I happened to be home. I am actually in the middle of Coldworker's first tour so I could recieve the copies and also mail out a few. Check out the merch mailing blog to see if you'll get your copy now or later. As I'm continuing th...

"Grind Finale" pre-order option currently closed

I am currently not accepting any more pre-orders for the "Grind Finale" 4xLP. I have so many pre-orders right now, that I have to at least temporarily stop new orders. Those of you who have pre-ordered the album but yet not paid it should do that as soon as possible as I can't hold on to your unp...

50% of the "Grind Finale" 4xLP already pre-ordered! Shipping date revealed!

Close to 50% of my copies of the "Grind Finale" 4xLP are already pre-ordered! They are going fast so keep them pre-orders coming! I think I will be able to ship some, if not all, of the pre-orders during November 19-21 when there is a gap in the upcoming Coldworker tour, and then ship some more b...

The "Grind Finale" 4xLP!!! Pre-order now!

Yesterday I got a sample of the "Grind Finale" 4xLP in the mail. This is a "testpressing" of the whole package - it still hasn't gone into full production, and man - I am so fucking excited! The LP is a fucking monster, weighing 1,2 kilo (that's 2.7 pounds) and is the thickest piece of vinyl I ha...

Last chance to get Grind Finale... on CD

Relapse has gotten around 200 copies of "Grind Finale" in return from the distributers, and it's now available from their mailorder. These are the last copies of "Grind Finale" ever on CD. When these last copies are gone, all 13 000 copies are sold. Amazing! Order "Grind Finale" from Relapse.com ...

Videoclips of two rare live shows available now!

Thanks to Rob of Loudnet.tv I can now offer you two rare live shows from the very first Nasum tour, seven years ago, in their entirety. Rob shot these videos back in 1999 at CBGB's in New York and Melody Bar in New Brunswick, and they bring back a lot of memories. The first tour is something spec...

A May 5 update about servercrashes and shit

nasum.com was down for about 48 hours due to a severe servercrash at the webhost. Luckily nothing was lost, neither the webpages nor the database. Is there something going on in the Nasum camp? Yes, there is. I'm working with vinylversion of "Grind Finale" which is getting closer and closer with ...

An April 3rd update about everything

Last Thurday was the one year aniversary of Mieszko's funeral. It seems unreal that one year has passed since that sunny day when we said our last goodbyes. That day last year felt like the first day of summer, but that day this year didn't even feel like the last day of winter. It's really strange....

A February 20th update about everything

Long time no news... To be completely honest I've been so busy lately so I have mostly only been able to answer a few questions and do the merch in the Nasum world, and not had the time to do any other sorts of updates. Well, I finally have some time to take care of Nasum business so here is an upda...

Emergency alert! Serverspace needed now!

It's that time again... Marcel from silentstagnation.com who has been hosting the Nasum mediafiles (mp3's and videoclips) has announced that he can't support me with this service any longer due to the massive bandwidth the mediafiles consume each month. This is news that strikes me in both a bad...

December 26, 2005 - one year after the Tsunami

Today I went to Mieszko's grave to light a candle and give him the first 200 messages from the fans and friends and his copy of "Grind Finale". I am not sure how things are in the rest of the world but the Tsunami disaster struck very hard on Sweden and there are memorial services all over. One o...

One year later: post a message to the memory of Mieszko

The aniversery of the Tsunami disaster and Mieszko's passing is coming up. Now you have a chance to send a message that will be placed on Mieszko's grave around the 26th and brought to Thailand and placed at the Memorial site mid January 2006. Matte of Genocide SuperStars is heading towards Thai...

An early Christmas gift

Only one week left until Christmas so I decided to give you all a little early Christmas gift from the ex-members of Nasum. As you might know (or at least read in this blog) Urban, Jon and I got together in October to write and record some new grind shit. It's not a new band, but a project in the...

More merch, Christmas info and new auction rules

The stock of soft merch (cloths) is now filled again with reprints of mainly all available t-shirts (some exceptions) and also - by popular demand - a reprint of the "Helvete" zip hood. I know - I have again and again said that I would never reprint it but as mentioned above - by popular demand it's...

"Grind Finale" pictures, first review, delayed merch and more

Yesterday I got my personal copies of "Grind Finale" and I guess you can imagine how that felt, right? I've been following the package's route from Philadelphia to Örebro on UPS's website and I feared that it wouldn't be delievered on Friday, but it was and I became a happy fellow. It's too bad it's...

Even more records and a rare items auction

There has been some more vault excavations going on and out came some more records. Added to the Merchandise page is the original release of Genocide SuperStars I, two different Genocide SuperStars 7" EP's, the "...och hotet kvarstår" 7" EP by Krigshot and another bunch of Nasum/Warhate split 7" EP'...

More hard merchandise and good "Grind Finale" news

I've added some new "hard" (meaning records, "soft" = clothes) merchandise. For the first time ever (I think) I have all the four Nasum CD's in stock and I sell them in a super discounted fourpack. If you haven't got them yet - this is your big chance. I am also selling the infamous Picture Discs...

"Grind Finale" cursed? Delayed until January!

Yet again I am sorry to inform you that "Grind Finale" is delayed a few months more and will be released worldwide in January 2006. It's very sucky and fucked up, but there's nothing we can do at this point. The reason this time is yet again a fuck up by the printer who printed the whole booklet...

"Grind Finale" slightly delayed and more merch

I'm unhappy to announce that "Grind Finale" will be slightly delayed due to printing issues. I don't have the exact details, but apparently the printer sent the wrong templates for the artwork to Relapse, resulting in a complete set of artwork in the wrong size, so the Relapse guys have all worked t...

Even more new merchandise

The merch stock has been filled for the second time, and with this update the "Shift" t-shirt and the "Gold N" zip hood returns to the stock. Not only that; a print with the classic Krigshot cover for "Örebromangel" is now in stock along with two brand new Genocide SuperStars t-shirts! Also note tha...

”Grind Finale” artwork and release details

This past week the artwork and booklet design for the last (?) Nasum release, the collection “Grind Finale” was finalized and sent to the printer. Now I finally can give you a preview of the front cover for this release. The cover has been made by Relapse’s art department - Orion Landau did the f...

Finally: new merchandise!

After a long time with only weird sizes we finally have stocked up on old, new and really old merchandise! Yes, we have made some reprints of the recent designs, two in a new color, and we've made some more excavations in the vault and reprinted two classic designs from the past and - as requested -...

Shirts for charity

I am about to order new merch really, really soon, but in the meantime check out the "Shirts for charity" at the merchandise page. After a very long time some lost tourshirts have made their way home, to be sold at a really low price where all the money will go to charity. The story: We ordered m...

Vault excavation: Merchandise extravaganza!!!

I have updated the merchandise page with lots of hard merchandise (= records) from the vaults. I've found a lot of out of print stuff that I only have a few copies of so be fast if you want it. There is also a new (!) Necrony release available in our mailorder as of now. I am as surprised as you...

A July 23 update about everything

Thanks to Marcel and SilentStagnation.com the Audio/video page is now back again! I had to close down the page and remove the audio and video files from the server as my webprovider wrote me an angry email. When I confronted them I learned that the real reason was the trafic and not the media files,...

Wanted (again): Serverspace

The Audio/Video page is temporarily closed as my webhotel does not allow mp3's and videoclips for download. So while I search for another place to host them, I can't have them on the site. Sorry. I need help with storage for our mp3's and videos. If you can provide space for Nasum (preferebly 1 ...

Massive web update - including new video!

I've been writing a lot lately. For those of you who read the blog you know that I've been working on track by track commentaries to the albums. That's not the only stuff I've been writing lately. I've spent a few hours writing down some memories from each album concerning the recording, the title, ...

Six months since the Tsunami

Today it's six months since the Tsunami took Mieszko's life in Thailand. I went to the grave together with my girlfriend and our friend Jimmy who once played in a band with Mieszko and who has been our merch guy on several shows in Sweden. We brought the two orange sunflowerish flowers you see at th...

Blog added to nasum.com

Today I've opened a blog on nasum.com due to different reasons. First of all I want to have the possibility to post Nasum related stuff that really isn't a newspost or a statement. It can be everything from a nice comment in a fanmail or a cool Nasum coversong by some new band. Further on I'd lik...

A June 8 update about everything

Hey kids and old people! Now the new nasum.com has been online around two weeks and I think it's working quite fine. The new Q and A page seems to work well instead of the old guestbook. That's good.

Picture discs of the albums

GMR Music in Sweden will issue picture dics of the albums of Nasum, at least the first three albums. We'll see if they can do "Shift" as well.

Mieszko honored in Guinness World Record attempt

May 15, 2005 the first "Guitar day" was held in Örebro, Sweden. The idea was to collect as many guitar players as possible to play at the same time. There weren't enough guitar players present to beat the old world record, but instead the participents aimed for another world record instead, namel...
