Heya Anders! Can we expect to see you on this years Augustibuller?

And what distortion did Nasum use for their guitars?

Question from Kai from Germany (IP: 62.180.216.15) posted July 5, 2005 16:15:27:
Q:
hey anders!

i´m looking for a close-up photo of mieszko in a good resolution and quality to use it for a tattoo. i´ve been looking in your galaries, but there was only one pic that seems to fit (galarie 8 pic 2). i want a picture that embodies mieszko´s energy and passion, so i think a live-pic would be best. maybe you can help me out somehow by sending me a link or something else helpful? Exspecially your lyrics mean so much to me, so the tattoo will quote the song "fury": "When the seas calm down but only then will our fury finally sleep" Thank you for so much you don´t know! Kai burningparadise@gmx.de
A:
I have emailed you that specific picture in the biggest version I have. I don't know if it's big enough. / Anders
Question from jamie (IP: 24.6.218.255) posted July 5, 2005 10:48:56:
Q:
is mieszko's grave in a public cemetary? if so, where is it? i would like very much to visit it, i have 2 of his picks and i would like to leave one by his headstone.

nasum is an inspiration to all forms of extreme music, thank you for enlightening us, and our music world.
A:
Mieszko is buried at the Almby kyrka (Church of Almby) in Örebro. The exact "address" of the grave is Syrénen 130. Mieszko's grave is still without a proper headstone since they are waiting for the soil to settle so the stone won't fall. / Anders
Question from victor fábio (IP: 200.255.52.126) posted July 5, 2005 05:18:16:
Q:
Anders,
I have a little proposal for you.. It´s comming along a "Brazilian Nasum Tribute" (with only Brazilian Bands). We still have a long way to go...
But First I need your Authorization!? And if there´s any way you could help it (photos, bio, memory of Miesko...), I would really appreciate that.
my contact if you need is: victor@flamesrecords.com
A:
You are free to do whatever you want to celebrate the memory of Mieszko/Nasum, but as I've explained earlier I do not want to be involved in the workprocess. It's too weird. / Anders
Question from Charlie, England (IP: 62.64.172.254) posted July 3, 2005 03:41:19:
Q:
Hello, is there any way in which you may make a message board for this site please? so we can talk about stuff? thanks
A:
I am not sure that I want a message board. I can easily add one to the site, but a message board always lead to a lot of negative shit (and by that I DON'T mean negative opinions about Nasum - critizism I can handle), and I am so very tired of negative shit on the Internet where unsecure people hide behind their aliases and talk shit about eachother. I don't want such a feature on this site. So, I don't know about a message board right now. / Anders
Question from Ben Terror (IP: 202.59.21.14) posted July 2, 2005 12:34:13:
Q:
Anders,
Nasum are one of the main reasons we got together and made some of our own grind. The DIY ethic is important. I will continue to spread the word of the bands great work in Australia.

We wrote a song called 31/12/04 when the death toll reached over 50 000. Then we found out about Mieszko. We are currently recording this and other songs in our home studio.

If you have time can you check out our first song at

Ben Terror
A:
Well, good luck with the grind! / Anders
Question from jonatan, finland (IP: 194.112.11.133) posted July 2, 2005 12:02:33:
Q:
hej anders. kommer tröjorna, exempelvis luvtröjorna med dragkedja att komma i nyupplaga?
eller måste man skynda sig fort som fan att beställa någon av de få som finns kvar?
A:
Jag kommer att prioritera nytryckningar av t-shirts snarare än hoods, så just nu gäller det att köpa de som finns. / Anders

Q:
This is prakangR hailing from malaysia..my Q is:

1)what is Nasum guitar tuning/setup?

2)how can i get the human 2.1 album? is it still around?
A:
1. Tune to B and then drop to A.
2. "Human 2.0" can be bought from me. "Human 2.01" (the Japanese edition) can be bought from Japan. There is no "Human 2.1"! / Anders

Question from Candy (Benighted - France) (IP: 83.145.73.58) posted June 29, 2005 14:37:37:
Q:
Hello Anders,

First of all, the new Nasum.com design is very Great !!!
Here's my question : On the "Collapsed" compilation released by Ritual Records in Japan, there is a live version of "Shadows" among others.
I tried to buy this very nice item, but it's out of print.
I thought this song was (without doubt, he he...) on Grind Finale, but as I saw the song list, it wasn't the case...

Do you think it 's possible to find this song anywere ? Impossible to find it for download...
Perhaps can you add the song in the Grind Finale song list ??!? he he he...

Greetings
Candy
A:
"Grind Finale" only includes studio recordings, why it's impossible to add live songs. I think I have listened to that "Shadows" recording once. It's not that good and we didn't pick it for the comp. Maybe it's out there in some Japanese guys shared mp3's. / Anders
Question from tuoski (IP: 85.76.48.249) posted June 29, 2005 14:30:44:
Q:
Hello Nasum!

What does the voice in the beginning of "Stormshield" say exactly? I comprehend part of it, someone having dedicated his life to making money etc... I love the song btw.

Then in the beginning of "Just another hog" someone says something in Swedish. I thought it was something like "Are you blind, deaf or stupid!?" in English. What might that be?
A:
Sample in "Stormshield" (from the movie "Seven"): "This is a man who dedicated his life to making money by lying with every breath that he could muster".
Sample in "Just Another Hog" (from the movie "Tillsammans"): "Fattar du, ta inte det här personligt, men du är så jävla dum i huvudet, du är så jävla lurad!" roughly traslated to "Don't take this personal but you are so fucking stupid, you are so fucking fooled!". / Anders
Question from chuckie hardcore (IP: 208.181.210.118) posted June 28, 2005 22:17:16:
Q:
Is the Nasum/Napalm Daeth 10" ever going to see the light of day? I'm sure that I read in past issue of Resoundzine/catolog with Nasum as a feture interview that some of the stuff, for that record had been recorded?If I'm wrong, sorry, but I myself along with other fans of both groups would like too anything about this record;why it would not be put out, when (if so).Thanks, for you time.
A:
I think it's the "Helvete" studio diary that you're thinking of (it was also published in Resound). Anyway - all the old ideas are scraped - read this blog for the latest news regarding the split. / Anders
Question from Dantrooper (IP: 137.250.126.113) posted June 28, 2005 17:55:03:
Q:
Hey, you remember the preview to preview to hell-file you made available for download before Helvete was released? YOu told us that you recorded many songs of the album via Minidisc, and as the sound absolutely rocked my bottom here's my desperate plea once again to give us the songs for download.
Plz understand: We just LOOOOOVE raw sound and I fell in love with Miescasdsadko's guitar as soon as I heard it. So please reconsider. thx
A:
At the moment I feel that I want to keep all rehearsals and such for myself. It's my memories. But I might share something one day if it's good enough to be released publicly. Our rehearsal records were always meant for us, for development of the songs, so they are often quite unlike the final versions of the songs. / Anders
Question from Cody (IP: 81.226.83.120) posted June 28, 2005 17:19:51:
Q:
Tjena Anders!
Undrar om du har kvar samma trummor som på Helvete inspelningen? I så fall undrar jag vad den "färgen" kallas, och om det är lackat, oljat trä eller om det är är s.k "wraps" runtom. Har själv ett DW set o funderar på att byta utseende på dom, jag gillar utseendet på ditt set.

p.s spelar du alltid barfota lr? hehe
A:
Jo, trumsetet är kvar. Jag har ingen aning om vad det kan kallas. Det är som en slags svart bets på träet. Det är ingen heltäckande färg och heller inte något som klistrats på det. Svart bets är vad det är.
Japp, jag spelar alltid barfota. / Anders
Question from Bertil (IP: 82.182.222.138) posted June 28, 2005 03:57:02:
Q:
ursäkta om frågan är lite väl personlig (inte min mening)

vad är det som har varit jobbigast under tiden från att mieszko var försvunnen tills idag?
A:
Att en människa som hade så mycket livsglädje i sig inte längre finns. / Anders
Question from Richard (IP: 213.112.133.144) posted June 27, 2005 19:51:56:
Q:
Har du några planer på att utöka bildgalleriet? Vad jag gärna skulle vilja se är promobilder från alla fotosessions ni tagit! Och gärna fler livebilder och annat smått & gott!
A:
Så småningom kommer det mer bilder. Just nu jobbar jag med andra webbprojekt privat så jag har inte tid till några större uppdateringar på nasum.com (och uppdatera fotogalleriet är ett stort projekt tidsmässigt!), men det kommer. / Anders
Question from Max (IP: 213.13.233.24) posted June 26, 2005 12:28:12:
Q:
Hello! Portugal salutes you guys for the excelent music you wrote!
Keep writing songs, Anders!!!

Can you please translate "Nasum" to english? ;)
A:
Nasum = "a grindcore band from Sweden". / Anders
Question from Paco (IP: 80.58.8.235) posted June 25, 2005 16:58:56:
Q:
I´m from Spain...and I would like to know what are your favourite grind bands from Spain??? do u enjoy any new band specially??
A:
I'm not that involved in the Spanish scene. I think Haemorrage has done some cool stuff. One Spanish band that I really like is Ekkeia, but they are a hardcore band. / Anders
Question from Michael (IP: 80.251.207.8) posted June 24, 2005 23:56:27:
Q:
"Q: Hey Anders....

...or if you guys would find it appropriate, will you please make In Memory T-shirts for Mieszko? Everyone should be able to show their love.

A: There will be something sooner than you think... / Anders"

Antog bara att det skulle vara en tröja.. vad annars?

kom och tänka på en annan sak också. Hur många trumpinnar och skinn har du slagit sönder sen du började spela i nasum?
A:
Något sådant har jag inte hållt räkning på. Däremot kan jag säga att jag sällan slår av trumpinnar eller slår trumskinn tills de spricker (det har nog aldrig hänt i Nasum, förutom något bastrummeskinn möjligtvis). Jag hade tur med pinnarna, de blev bara grymt slitna i de flesta fallen. / Anders
Question from Michael (IP: 80.251.207.8) posted June 24, 2005 13:42:00:
Q:
Det går inte att lägga en förbeställning på memorial tröjan tillsammans med grind finale?

kommer båda vara limited?
A:
Jag vet inte vad du pratar om för tröja, och "Grind Finale" kommer inte att vara limited så det behövs inte göras någon förhandsbeställning. / Anders
