Question from Patrik (IP: posted April 13, 2006 21:31:50:
tjenare anders, jag har läst en hel del av era texter med nasum och alla är ju på något sett politiskt riktade men det är en låt som jag inte ser någon politik i...Can De Lach på Inhale/Exhale skivan, är det något politiskt med den låten? isåfall vad är det ni menar? eller är det bara en helt opolitisk låt?
Det är en helt opolitisk låt baserad på boken "Desperation" av Stephen King. / Anders

Fan va sur du låter hela tiden :)

En annan sak, vilken tid börjar Krigshot spela imorrn egentligen?
Sorry, men jag tycker att ämnet är ganska irrelevant.
Det ska vara tyst på 44:an kl 22, så vi kliver väl på strax efter 21. / Anders
Question from anonym (IP: posted April 13, 2006 19:51:38:
har du någon/några sångare till coldworker på g som är på g?
På G. på G? :) Japp, det har vi faktiskt. Mer info snart! / Anders
Question from steffe (IP: posted April 13, 2006 16:43:28:
Ja, det gjorde jag faktiskt. Kan inte tänka mig att man mår så mycket bättre utav att inte äta fläsk, men får man fråga dig vad är din anledning är då?
Man mår bäst av en varierad kost och vad den består av är upp till var och än. Det finns viktigare saker i livet än att fokusera på än vad folk äter och inte äter. / Anders
Question from steffe (IP: posted April 12, 2006 23:47:48:
Varför är du inte vegetarian längre? Rätt sjukt att helt plötsligt tycka förtrycket är okej!
Du tar för givet att alla som är vegetarianer är det på samma grunder som du själv. Så är det inte. / Anders
Question from Jon Long (IP: posted April 10, 2006 05:41:11:
Yo, I LOVE the coldworker stuff. It would sound amazing with vocals, so jump on that. I was wondering, where did the name coldworker come from?
Oskar and I was really racking our brains trying to come up with a name that would fit the music, the lyrical approach and not be used by 300 bands already. As I was looking into some word I stumbled across "coldwork" and loved the meaning of the word. We added "-er" to the end to make it more "personal" and to escape the obvious comparisons with other bands. / Anders

Please can you tell me, what the name NASUM means ?
Buy "Grind Finale" and you will find out. / Anders
Question from Constantin (IP: posted April 3, 2006 19:44:38:

somehow I can't download the live-recordings from audio/video-section. Just wondering if anything's wrong with it.

Sorry, the links were wrong. They are working now. / Anders
Question from Ben (IP: posted April 3, 2006 08:45:53:
To Anders

I don't really have a question. Well I sent you an email, I hope you can read it sometime, but I just wanted to say; I'm sure you've heard this enough times and it might not mean alot, but I just wanted to say thanks for all the great music, and for all the great inspiration over the years. I first started to listen to Nasum when I was about 11 or 12, I'm 20 now, and I'm sad that I never got to see you guys play live. Much respect and love for Mieszko, his family, and ex Nasum.

Thanks for keeping the dream alive. Thanks for the great music. I can't wait to hear more of it when the time is right for you. Every time I listen to Nasum I am very happy and motivated; sometimes i feel very lonely and depressed and your music makes me feel very comforted

I hope to hear more music from you. Much respect. And I hope you could reply to my email when you had a chance.

Respect to you Anders.
More music from me is already available. / Anders
Question from Robin (IP: posted March 31, 2006 20:47:18:
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)?
Nej. För övrigt är jag inte vegetarian längre. / Anders
Question from Z from Czech (IP: posted March 30, 2006 13:46:23:
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!
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 pretty soon. / Anders
Question from tromb (IP: posted March 30, 2006 09:19:58:
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!
One of these days... Right now 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: posted March 27, 2006 19:56:35:
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?
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: posted March 27, 2006 12:18:31:
So 25% of Shift's material was considered "recycled" even by the band itself?!
No. It's just artwork. / Anders
Question from Daniel M (IP: posted March 27, 2006 09:04:23:
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!
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: posted March 26, 2006 12:28:51:
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.
Yes. / Anders
Question from Richard (IP: posted March 25, 2006 03:29:12:
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?
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: posted March 24, 2006 21:27:07:
Är det du som äger Öl-flaskan från P3 Guld Awards?
Jag vet inte om någon av oss behöll någon som minne. Jag tror fotot är det enda vi har. / Anders
Question from Paul (IP: posted March 24, 2006 20:36:27:
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.
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: posted March 22, 2006 11:04:44:
You have written: nasum never come back.
I think an album dedicated to Mieszko, demanding and extrem played will be the best farewell!
"Grind Finale" is the best farewell. / Anders
Question from Niclas (IP: posted March 17, 2006 11:13:10:
När kommer det in nya ex av tröjorna? Dvs Shift och Helvete-hoodies'arna.
Du ska inte räkna med att det kommer nya. / Anders
Question from Richard (IP: posted March 17, 2006 01:23:05:
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...
Den videoupptagning jag är inte så bra ljudmässigt eftersom det typ saknas virvel på hela konserten... Köp inte! / Anders
Question from Takumi (IP: posted March 15, 2006 11:30:47:
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.
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

Already answered. / Anders
Question from Sam (IP: posted March 14, 2006 01:36:14:
Hey, I'm doing a power point presentation on you guys for school. I was wondering how to correctly pronounce everyone's names in the most recent line-up. It'd be greatly appreciated.
Something along the lines of:

Ah-nders Yahkohb-son
Uhr-bahn Sk*-y**htt (* like J in Julio, ** like y ín Reality)
Joon Lihnd-qwist / Anders
