Nasum - Live Rare Videos Posted Online

Swedish Grindcore metallers, Nasum have posted online two complete live shows from the band's early tour.

Taken from their official site:

"Thanks to Rob of I can now offer you two rare live shows from the very first Nasum tour, seven years ago, in their entirety.

Rob shot these videos back in 1999 at CBGB's in New York and Melody Bar in New Brunswick, and they bring back a lot of memories. The first tour is something special and I can remember very much of those 17 days we were in the US like it was just the other week.

These rough videos display a very early version of Nasum as a live band. It was our ninth and tenth show with that line-up and it was the end of the tour. I am frankly surprised that it was as good as it is (?) considering everything. The band sounds very aggressive and hardcore and the tracklist includes lots of songs thae tracklist includes lots of songs that we never played again live. It's very cool, and it's also a bit humerous - just look at how low Mieszko had his mike stand during this tour! It's freaking hilarious."

As previously announced, Nasum decided to split up after Talarczyk died in the the Southeast Asian tsunami disaster on December 26, 2004.

Nasum - Ex-Members Starting New Project

The following message can be found in the band's site.

"Tomorrow Jon and Urban come to Örebro. We are going to kickstart a new little project, which will include Jesper in the future, but this weekend its just us three.

Yes, it's all ex-Nasum members in this project, and yes, there will be a great amount of grinding done, but no - this is not Nasum part 2, this is just a couple of friends who happen to like playing together catching up and making some music at the same time.

I'll tell you more when there is something more to tell, this weekend we'll just write some songs I guess and see what happens. A recording is planed sometime, but nothing more than that.

I've been looking forward to this weekend many many weeks now so I am very excited about all this."

Nasum - "Grind Finale" Slightly Delayed

Nasum drummer Anders Jakobson has posted the following message on the band's official website:

"I'm unhappy to announce that "Grind Finale" will be slightly delayed due to printing issues. I don't have the exact details, but apparently the printer sent the wrong templates for the artwork to Relapse, resulting in a complete set of artwork in the wrong size, so the Relapse guys have all worked this over and corrected everything according to the right templates, resulting in a slight delay in the release.

There are a lot of time, love and energy invested in this release already and we are certainly not going to damage all that with a bad printing, so we all just have to face the fact and wait a little longer for the release.

The new release dates are as follows:
USA: November 15
Europe: November 21
Japan: During November

I still haven't got the exact date for the Japanese release but right this moment George Seki of Howling Bull is translating the whole 80 page booklet to Japanese (the only bonus they will get)...

Again I'm sorry for the delay. This is not ours or Relapse's fault, we should all just blame a clumsy printer who also happens to lack a lot of servicemindness, being a lazy ass bastard! Hehe! So just wait for it a little longer, OK?"

Nasum - The Now And The Future

Anders Jakobson the fouding member remaining in the band had posted the following message:

"Welcome back to! After more than three months we're finally back with a brand new version of, completely re-designed and re-programmed (we've moved from a Windows based server with asp/access to a Unix based server with php/mysql, for you webnerds out there!). I hope it's not too buggy, but get in touch if it is.

Many things have happened since the identification of Mieszko's body on February 17 2005, the day we closed down I wrote "You know why" on the page that met the visitors. Truth is that you don't know the whole truth. We closed the webpage down to pay respect to the memory of Mieszko, but we also closed it down to escape the fans.

Between the day of the tsunami and the day of the identification we were virtually overwhelmed by support and comfort to the point that it suffocated us. At least I felt that I hadn't space to breathe and think and cry and feel, something that I needed to do. Everytime I looked in the guestbook there were 10-15 new posts with wonderful words from people who cared, and as time went by it became harder and harder to read these posts, especially since we were quite assure that Mieszko was dead as early as mid January.

At one point I was at a local concert and people wanted to pay their respects and one completely unknown guy came to me and said "He's coming back, don't worry!" and even though I said "Thanks" in return I just wanted to grab the guy and scream "Don't you get it? He's not coming back! Mieszko is fucking dead!" in his face. Not a nice thing to do, and not a nice thing to feel like doing.

So I was prepared to close one or two weeks before the identification. I even wrote the family to get their permission to declare Mieszko dead, just so we all could go on with our mourning (at this point we were not sure that the body would be identified at all). As I was waiting for a reply the word came and it became natural to close the site.

I don't want this to sound like I'm whining, because I am very thankful for all the support and care we got during the dark months that started of 2005. As I've said numerous times, the huge fanbase helped us to get through the worst shit we've faced in our lives, a help that other people related to the victims of the tsunami didn't have. There were over 100 000 hits on during a very short period and the guestbook - as I mentioned earlier - was flooded with supporting posts from people we know, bands we know, bands we don't know, people who are fans, people who aren't fans - all sorts of people that just wanted to pay respect. And apart from a few fucking scums of the Internet who disrespected our situation and Mieszko's family just because they didn't like Nasum, we got only love and support. Again: Thanks for everything!
