Swedish grindcore legends Nasum have debuted a live video for the song "Relics", which originally comes off their third full-length album Helvete released back in 2003. The video was shot in Copenhagen, Denmark in September 2012 by Rasmus G. Sejersen as the band wraps up their final/farewell European Tour.
Legendary grindcore act Nasum recently announced the final European tour dates of their 20th anniversary, starting September 20th and ending with a massive grind finale, free of charge, in the Swedish capital of Stockholm on October 6th.
Swedish legendary grinders Nasum will celebrate their 20th anniversary in a very special way: A handful of shows and festival gigs around the world. Joining them on vocals is none other than Finnish Rotten Sound frontman Keijo Niinimaa.
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 Loudnet.tv 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."
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.
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.
Anders Jakobson the fouding member remaining in the band had posted the following message:
"Welcome back to nasum.com! After more than three months we're finally back with a brand new version of nasum.com, 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 nasum.com. 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.
Today - Thursday, February 17, 2005 - we recieved a confirmation that Mieszko Talarczyk died in the Tsunami Disaster December 26, 2004. His body has been identified and will be transfered to Sweden shortly.
His closest family and friends are in our thoughts right now. Mieszko will be missed by many.
nasum.com will be closed for at least a month. You know why. There will be a slight update in a couple of days with some information about the future of Nasum along with some personal words about Mieszko.
Thanks a lot for your support and your thoughts. Now a new time begins, a time we must spend alone. Please respect this wish.
Anders and Nasum.
Condolences are offered to his family, friends and all the people that knew him, by the Metal Storm staff.
Mieszko and his girlfriend went to Thailand to spend the holidays. They left a few days before Christmas and were scheduled to return right after New Years Eve. They were staying in a bungalow at Phi Phi Island and when the big wave came and swept the bungalow away the two were seperated. Mieszko's girlfriend is being reported hospitalized "badly injured", and he himself is still missing.
Their new album "The Shift" will be release throught Burning Heart worldwide on 11 of october 2004 and throught Relapse (to the us) on 26 of october 2004, also you can check the covert art at:
And finally the band have post a sound sample at:
The grindcore band has finished the works on "Shift" that will be release in october, 2004. Nasum will include two new members in this release, they are: bassist Jon Lindqvist and guitarist Urban Skytt.
The band describes the album as: "a very fast and aggressive album with some of the fastest parts ever recorded by NASUM, but as usual, there is room for groove and nuances. In other words: classic NASUM grindcore."
After the release the band plans a tour of four weeks over Europe.
