From the years I've been listening to Nasum over and over again, "Shift" seems to give me some incredible feeling of nostalgia due to the very melodic parts in the songs. I was wondering what influenced you and the boys from Nasum to lean towards a more melodic side (Mostly the endings of "Closer to the End", "Darkness Falls", and parts of "Ros"), and who made the decision to head down that path?
I read a review online, where someone said that you guys were stealing from "At the Gates", which I thought was complete bullshit. It's really Nasum's own unique sound, and take on it.
As for the examples you mention - the ending of "Closer to the End" is heavily inspired by Isis and I remember Jon laughing as he said that none of his other bands would let him getting away with such an obviously stolen part. "Darkness Falls" was the last song on the album and demanded a definitive finale (it's the same on all the last songs on the albums), and it's also a sort of sentimental and sad song so the melody was obvious. "Ros" has the same kind of melodic qualities as many other songs by Mieszko, as the mentioned "Shadows" and "Fury".
At The Gates was a source of inspiration as any other Swedish metal band, but perhaps not as obvious in our sound as for example Entombed. The only thing I can certainly say is stolen from them is the break and the word "Go!" in "Sixteen" on "Human 2.0"... / Anders
figuring this year will be the fifth year since Mieszko's pass-away, I was wondering how you will memorize him? I mean, he will always be on your mind, but I was thinking of arranging a show here in Belgium in honour of him. I never personally knew him, which then again makes it a little bit ridiculous.
Because the lyrics are very genuine, honest and heartfelt. I love them. I am also posting some of them on friends' forum to share.
All the best. \m/
ps: I am looking forward to buy Coldworker's LPs but it seems a little bit complicated.
By the way! What is it about with this nasum-tribute thing?
We (distaste - grind from aut) would like to perform "fury", cause i (still) think it´s the best grind-song ever.
Do you know, whom we should contact, or what we should do?
More info at power-it-up.de. / Anders
I love Nasum.
1-Have you ever been to Italy?
2-Will you be there with Coldworker in some festival?
3-What kind of music do you like, except grindcore?
2. Perhaps in the future, but not this year.
3. I like a lot of music, most kinds of metal, most kinds of alternative music and some commersial.
This was question #1000 - congratulations! / Anders
i have a question, why was the shape of the "black swarm" t-shirt such a fkkng mess? i still refer to badly shaped shirts as nasum-shirts.
is there any chance you'll print some of the "recycle" shirts ever again?
did Nasum play in poland or had an opportunity to play?maybe you have plans to visit poland with coldworker?:)cheers
I was checking out some Nasum gigs on youtube and I came across the one at "Groene Engel" in Oss. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-floYO0VkM).
Your snare drum has one HELL of a bang to it. I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of snare model that was? It sounds tight as hell, and extremely pulverizing. I love it!
Cool clip, I haven't seen it before. Completely out of sync though... / Anders
Do you know something about the Grind finale LP set repress? Are there any clear vinyls pressed?
Are there any black vinyls pressed from the Doombringer LP?
do we need permission from you or from your label for any legal etc issues?
is it hard to get the swedish occupation?
anyway nasum was one of the best grindcore bands in the world
I just want to ask that will the videos from the download section be downloadable again?
Did you heard something about the Nasum Napalm Death split?
The split is coming... some day. / Anders
Jag saknar Miezsko som fan, jag kan inte föreställa mig hur det är för dig som förmodligen var väldigt tight med honom.
Det lär ha varit Black Panthern för det är den enda virvel jag äger. / Anders
What do you think about the new Nasum shirt on Relapse, "The Engine of Death"?
It's about time a "Shift" based shirt was released.. It's got quite the interesting look to it.
Were you involved with the design/make at all?
What was one of the funnest and most memorable shows you ever played with Nasum? There were obviously a ton of venues you played at, but I was wondering which one you had the most fun with out of them all and why?
Do you happen to know what bass Jesper used live in the Hultsfred Festival video? Mainly Ive seen him use it in the Human 2.0 era. It was 5 string and black.
Cheers if you have any info.
Through all the Nasum albums, I was wondering which one held your favorite snare drum sound? Are you very picky on having the perfect snare sound? Did you use different snares through out each album? I thought the production from each record would change the sound of it. Overall, I really loved it on "Helvete", it had such a bang on clang sound to it.
P.S - Any more info on the Nasum Tribute CD? I'm dying to hear other bands try to cover already amazing masterpieces.
I can remember what snares we used. Soundlab had one of two that was primary used because they were better than mine. I don't think I've used my own snare on any (real) recording.
Can't say which album has the best snare right now, and no new info about the comp. / Anders
