Does having someone else in your band with the same name ever get confusing?
Say if someone in Coldworker asked "Anders" to do something, you answer, but they actually directed it to Anders Bertilsson? =D
I know your drumming is more then just speed,
involving technical, groove stuff and what not, which sounds kick ass,
but I was wondering what your fastest song on drums was for Nasum?
I thought "Supernova" was pretty damn lightning fast.
Grindcore i all ära, men har du/ni aldrig funderat på att väcka Charles till liv igen? Enligt mig är "Orden inom mig" den bästa skiva som släppts i sin genre. Har förresten gamla konsertbilder på er från Badhuset nån gång på 90-talet (kanske inte är ensam om det).
just wanted to ask you about one thing that is like a shared concern for all of us. How is your hearing after these years of playing so loud? Ringing or anything, since I haven´t seen any plugs in your ears while playing live. Thanks for everything.
R.i.p. Mieszko, saknaden är stor!
Meaning to ask this before, I forgot about it.
I was wondering why "No Paradise For The Damned" was re-done and put on "Shift" when it was already on "The Black Illusions" like... 8 years difference between the albums.
Is there some meaning behind that song in order for it to be re-recorded?
I just think it's a powerful track, and who's ever desicion to re-do it, was a damn good one.
4. No Paradise for the Damned
- This is the only rerecording of a released track we've done for any of our albums. We didn't plan to record it, it just happened. We had talked about adding this song - originally from the Abstain split - to our liveset but never managed to really pick it out from the badly played and badly recorded original release. But somehow we came to talk about it during the "Shift" session and I went home and pushed myself to finally pick it out. So I did it and we recorded it, but it never made it into the liveset anyway.
Apart from that I think the song added a feeling of the old days, a more straight on grindcore song among the more modern songs we wrote. / Anders
BTW, sjekk ut grunnmiksen for en cover jeg gjør av Napalm Death - Scum: http://emilhenry.nux.no/scum-mix-2.mp3
Nasum was great and Coldworker kill us all!
Just to say it and confirm that Pigsty is a really good grind band!
Hope see you in France soon!
By the way, what do you think, which Rage is better? Rage or Rage Against the Machine?
Men jag har suttit och läst texterna till varenda låt ni har gjort. Speciellt är det dessa textrader som speciellt fångade min uppmärksamhet, och dessa var:
Capitalism takes its last sigh
As the fundamental values return.
Jag vet även att Mieszko skrev massor av liknande grejor, så nu till min fråga. Hur var det politiskt ställningstagandet i Nasum?
I was checking through the "Human 2.0" page on the Discography part of the site, and I saw what you had said about it...
"Human 2.0" was partly destroyed in the mastering. "
I noticed that this album had a much more raw sound to it, a really wicked/brutal, crisp quality, but what exactly happened with the mastering..?
If you could tell me, I thank you dearly.
(P.S. - The new drums look awesome! =D )
So did you play drums on Shift? I'm a bit confused about a few words you used in the answer to Nils' question.
As I previously said, Shift is my fav album by Nasum. The riffs are PURE POWER and the drumsounds are ones of the best I've ever heard in GrindCore. What was the snare brand & model if you remember? It sounds a bit like my friend's 70's Slingerland 14"x5.5" snare.
Still trying to find Grind Finale from somewhere to my collection, but not looking so bright, cant seem to find it anywhere inside Finland.
I've downloaded the live show recorded in Belgium with Shane Embury, and I've noticed Mieszko introduces Mitch Dickinson as a drummer on the Terrorizer cover. What did you play? Did you have two drummers?
I listened to Grind Finale a hell of a lot over the spring break, and the one song that really got to me was, "God-Slave America", and I read it was supposed to be on Human 2.0 but it wasnt..
The intro has to be one of the best riffs you ever came up with, why wasn't it placed along with the other tracks from Human 2.0?
Have you heard of the Czech Republic grindcore band called "Pigsty"? When you hear them tell me what you think, because I think they are one of the most intense and wild bands that ive heard in a while. They have that crushing effect like Nasum did. But you guys were a hell of a lot better.See ya later Anders and keep on grinding buddy!!
If the tabs are a no, then just let me know what tuning the guitars were on Shift.
[Respect, forever, R.I.P Mieszko Talarczyk]
The tuning was "drop-A". / Anders
