Vet att det här står någon annanstans på Q&A-sidan, men orkar helt enkelt inte leta igenom 40 sidor efter svaret.

Vilken film kommer början till "Blind World" ifrån? " the perfect... Nasum" menar jag.
"Flesh for Frankenstein". / Anders

Hey, are you aware of any GSS live bootleg video or audio out there?
No, I am not. I believe that GSS did less than 20 shows in all so I don't know how many of these were recorded or not. I am pretty sure that the band didn't do any recordings themselves. / Anders

Vad tycker du om svenska band som typ Fireside?
Jag tycker om Fireside. / Anders
Question from Ben Terror (IP: posted January 8, 2006 07:38:03:
What sort of ear plugs did you use playing in nasum?
Did you use a click track when recording drums?
My God... I used some cheap and good earplugs that you buy at the pharmacies in Sweden. Don't think you can get them anywhere.
We used click track for certain parts, like the end of "Worst case scenario", the middlepart of "Doombringer" and such. Never during the fast parts. / Anders

Have you ever heard some grindcore bands from Thailand like Failure Trace, Masochist, Biopsy Cunt, Gory vomit.....?
I have not. Those were some shitty names, by the way. / Anders
Question from Christoffer Sandström (IP: posted January 6, 2006 03:51:08:

Det materialet som är copyrightad av svt... Kunde man inte höra om det eventuelt var möjligt att få det ? Med tanke på allt som har hänt skulle man ju tro att det inte hadde varit några problem. Försökte själv att hitta en mail adress, men lyckades inte... inte för att jag är nån klypa på research exackt, men du är ju journalist ;)
Jag tror inte de tar hänsyn till sådant. Copyright är copyright, / Anders
Question from Anders (IP: posted January 5, 2006 20:18:22:
Tjena Anders. Om jag förstått rätt så jobbar du som musik-recensent... gick du någon speciell utbildning för att bli det? Hur blev du det? Tycker det verkar som ett jävligt kul jobb som jag själv skulle kunna tänka mig att jobba som.
Nja, min enda "utbildning" är att jag startade ett fanzine 1990, men i backspegeln var det inte förrän jag lyckades nästla mig in på tidningen som jag lärde mig att skriva om musik på riktigt.
Här vill jag rekommendera min kompis Fredrik Polbacks bok "Musikjournalistik" som jag formgivit omslaget till, och även gjort sajten där du i utdrag ur boken lär dig lite om hur man kan gå till väga för att bli musikjournalist. / Anders
Question from Kolle (IP: posted January 5, 2006 19:47:56:
vad är d-takt?
D-takt är det typ av trumkomp som figurerar främst i käng/crust men även i vanlig punk. Namnet lär komma från Discharge som var tidiga med detta trumkomp. / Anders
Question from Joey (IP: posted January 5, 2006 18:43:38:
Tjenare Anders, du är ju fantastiskt jävla grym på att blast-beata, du råkar inte ha nåt bra starttips på blastning?
Ge dig fan på att fixa det så ordnar det sig. Öva genom att köra några takter d-takt eller 2-takt och sen blasta lagom länge och repetera. Sen går det som en dans. / Anders
Question from Sebbe (IP: posted January 5, 2006 14:37:32:

What chinacymbale is used on Inhale/Exhale?
LOVE the sound of it!
It was a Sabian china. I can't remember the model (never been good at that). It's broken now so I am not using it anymore. It broke just before "Helvete" but it's used there anyway.
As always when it comes down to sound - what you hear is a result of the types of mikes that capture the sound, the distance to the cymbal, the natural room reverb, the eq:ing, the mix, the mastering and your personal eq on your own stereo so what you hear might not be exactly how the cymbal sounds in real life.
But, alas, the cymbal had a nice tone from the start. It was used on every recording from the "World in Turmoil" session to "Helvete". / Anders
Question from JRH (IP: posted January 4, 2006 23:55:37:
Hello again Anders, once again I am sorry if this question has been asked in Swedish. In the Bio section of this site I noticed the following passage:

"The new line up debuted at a show in Uppsala together with Tragedy. Parts of the show was filmed by Swedish TV who did a feature about Nasum in the music show "Studio Pop"."

Is there any chance of getting this footage up on the site? I know you don't plan on doing a Nasum DVD, but I'm trying to compile as much footage as I can for myself, and to have something filmed professionally outside of the "Wrath" video would be a great addition to the collection.

I think the chances are very small. That footage is copyrighted by Swedish TV so I can't just put it up (I don't have it in digitial form anyway), so unless someone has is in his/her computer and is filesharing it I think it will be very hard to get hold of this. The piece is very short anyway, about 2,5-3 minutes and most of it is talk anyway. / Anders

Hi Anders!
It'd be cool if you made a search filed in this Q&A forum... Can you do it?! It's very difficult to search 420 questions for the answer we're looking for...

Might happen, might not happen. Who says life should be easy? / Anders
Question from Bernhard (IP: posted January 1, 2006 20:09:09:
How do you say the name Mieszko Talarczyk ?

I'd say something like Myshko Talarshyk (in English) or is this completely wrong ?

Question from Nathan Dufour (IP: posted December 31, 2005 22:11:01:
Hey Anders! Happy New Year and happy holidays and everything else, hope that you are doing well. I just have a quick question regarding the Nasum Grind design... What language is the non-English script in? Thanks for your time. Oh and also, Grind Finale is a most fitting testament to Nasum and all the great things you guys did. R.I.P. Mieszko. \m/
The script is Japanese and should be read as "funzai", which is Japanese for "grind". / Anders
Question from JRH (IP: posted December 31, 2005 21:55:39:
just received my copy of Grind Finale in the mail!!! it is great to see that Relapse sent the pre-orders out so early... and it was well worth the wait... A FUCKING BRILLIANT ALBUM!!! Love the book too, thanks for all the effort that went into this Anders, it's worth a lot more than the monetary value. Good job!!!
Thanks a lot. / Anders
Question from Markus of Nyctophobic (IP: posted December 31, 2005 05:23:59:
Anders, have you heard the new Terrorizer song "Doomed Forever" yet? What do you think of it?
If you haven't heard it by now, go here:
All the best for 2006.
As far as I know it's from a 2003 demo or something, so it's not especially new. Unfortunately I can't say that I like it much. What's with the downtuned guitars?! / Anders
Question from Brian P. (IP: posted December 30, 2005 22:17:28:

You too! / Anders
Question from Viktor (IP: posted December 29, 2005 23:57:42:
Hej Anders!
Fick äntligen Grind Finale häromdan, och det är fanimej det finaste jag äger! Grymt!

Nu till min fråga... Var Nasum ett skriva-hemma-och-ta-med-till-repan-band eller mer improvisera-mera-band?
90% skriva hemma, resten jamma. / Anders
