News Grind: Relapse Records Announces Nasum Reissues!

Last week, my wife and I were in a record store trawling through old vinyls when she turned to me and said, “W., I just can’t seem to find any satisfying grind that gives me that boost I need to get through my work week. What’s a girl to do?” I recommended that she listen to Nasum while she drinks her morning coffee. Alas, after hours of scouring the record shop, we left dejected and empty-handed, and my wife’s grindless days continue.

That conversation never actually happened, but I’m sure many of us have been there. The disbanding of Nasum in 2005 following the death of Mieszko Talarczyk at the hands of a murderous tsunami left a Sweden-shaped grindy hole in our collective grindy hearts. But fret not, fellow grindheads, for the grind overlords have heard our urgent pleas through grinding teeth and have given us an answer. This December, all four Nasum full-lengths will be available for purchase on vinyl. That’s right. You can once again grind your heart out to Inhale/Exhale, Human 2.0, Helvete, and Shift like there’s no tomorrow. Servants of the grind, rejoice!

Be sure to check out the Relapse Records store and make your pre-orders. These albums are sure to ship fast. With that, let us bask in the glorious grind of Nasum and pay tribute to their memory!

Grind count in this post: 12.

    Yay! I like this band and it’s nice to see they’re getting their back catalog reissued.

    • Elite Extremöphile

      You’re back!

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Fucking christ.

  • hot protien injections seem to work well for my wife

    • VV.

      I’m not familiar with that band. What label are they on?

    • +1 for sex & avatar

      • +1 for name & avatar!

        • you can’t see it because the pic needed to be shrunk so much, but i MSpainted some “E”dward crests on the armor %_%

          • #teamedward #stayedward #void

            We might not achieve the same level of popularity and respect as #RiotAct6664ADay, but let it be known this is a thing that happened.

          • Respect? Pah! Respect is for Pantera. We need people to fear us!

    I’d like to get into vinyl, but it appears to be expensive to even get started, and I have enough expensive hobbies.

    • #teamedward #stayedward #void

      I’d like to once I move into the house I plan on dying in so I don’t have to move all that stuff.

      • I have wasted so much time and money collecting oh-so-heavy, backbreaking vinyl and stereo equipment. It’s so pretty though. (This is the turntable I’m working with. Not my pic, same model.)

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

          What kind of turntable is that? I happen to own a JVC but I need new speakers because the ones I have connected to my receiver blew out.

          • It’s a Yamaha PX-3

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

            I’ve heard they make good turntables.

          • I would look for vintage/aftermarket speakers, should be easily adaptable to most turntables.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

            I had a pair of Polk Audio speakers. I’ve been trying to find a better pair at a reasonable price.

          • Honestly, I would check craigslist in your area. People often get stuff like that and realize they can’t/wont use it.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

            I have a pair of speakers from a stereo I got for free that I might hook up to my receiver and see if they work. They are from either the late 80’s or early 90’s.

          • Sometimes older is better.

        • #teamedward #stayedward #void

          That is a sexy record player.

        • 0.o…how’s that linear tracking? I opted for something simple. It’s only got two buttons: speed selection and “Reject”. Great turntable for entry. Only cost me $80 used and refurb’d. I’m also on the look-out for a superior model, preferably something with linear tracking.

          n-e-ways..here’s my turntable 😀

          • CT-12

            Nice and simple, I like it.

          • And right when i show-off my shit, the return tonearm feature fucking breaks….”Now me and the mad scientist gotta rip apart the block and replace the piston rings you fried!”

        • CT-12

          Got dayum gurl.

      • Howard Dean

        And the tough part of that is, once you move into a house, you subsequently have a lot less money to spend on music! Fucking first world problems.

        • Edward, Goat Ov Void

          Right?! It’s always something when you’re middle class.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

      I’d recommend getting into it. I usually buy used vinyl and I’ve found some great stuff for cheap at the record store near me. I can’t wait for their Black Friday sale as they usually have amazing deals.

    • VV.

      I have a turntable I bought at Guitar Center for a couple hundred. I’m not as picky with vinyl equipment as some people here, so I’m definitely not the person to ask for detailed info.

      • #teamedward #stayedward #void

        Stay awake to the ways of the world, this shit is deep.

        • VV.

          Yes?

          • #teamedward #stayedward #void

            Indeed.

  • Elite Extremöphile

    10/10 now I want to punch a buzzsaw

    • Xan

      That is a horrifying thought.

  • If anyone wanted to get me an xmas gift…

    • Trailerpants ov Steele

      Let’s secret Santa…er Satan each other.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      The only gift you deserve, is the FUCKING VOID!!!!!!!!!!

      • It’s just what I wanted!

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          You’re so cunting transparent.

  • #teamedward #stayedward #void

    In grind related news, Handshake Inc. is going to release the next Swarrrm album, Flower!

    • VV.

      Swarrrm?

    • CT-12

      DUDE! Thank you for having the correct spelling of this band’s name! I’ve been trying to find check their shit out for a while now but couldn’t figure out how it was spelled so I gave up, fuck yeah!

      • #teamedward #stayedward #void

        I’m happy we have come together in this fashion, Crazy Taco.

  • Trailerpants ov Steele

    We’re gonna have to break the news to Tyree very slowly, he might overload if too excited.

  • Where’s Tyree?!
    STAY GRIND!!

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

      He’s going to be so excited about this.

    • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

      Bro! *Cracks open Miller Light.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

        Are you as excited for the Napalm Death/Voivod tour as I am? It’s coming near me as well as quite a few other good tours.

        • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

          Yeah, I’m going to try and go to that!

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

            It’s coming to my area as well as a few other good tours, most of which are closer to rock than metal. I’m very excited that Extreme is coming near me to perform their hit album Pornograffiti in full on January 18th and that’s just one good performance coming near me.

  • Hubert, Goat ov Doom

    GRIND >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Grind yourself into the void. A river of molten riffs

  • Death

    Fuck that! I don’t want to pay 19.93 dollars for the shipping.

    • It’s hard to get a vinyl to somewhere that doesn’t exist.

      • Death

        Some places over there have reasonable shipping costs.

        • They just throw the package through the wardrobe.

        • VV.

          To be fair, I was going to order one of those bundle packs from Debemur Morti but would have spent more on the shipping than on the actual item.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

      It must be hard getting things shipped to your imaginary land.

  • VV.

    You guys have only upped the grind quotient by 5. Slackers.

    • #teamedward #stayedward #void

      How can we grind further, W?

      (my reply to you earlier was the Wu Tang Clan, I just didn’t know where to put it lol)

      • VV.

        lol indeed. You can grind further and longer by checking out Agothocles! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRVvAONYO-8

        • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

          Oooooooo. Tis good.

        • #teamedward #stayedward #void

          Mincecore?

          Tyree the Grind Prophet and Lost to the Void Christ Molenaar put me onto your boy a while back. Gritty.

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            Razor Sharp Daggers is the shit. Check this album out when you get the chance.

          • #teamedward #stayedward #void

            I’ll make a real effort to do so!

            I need to immerse myself in Swallowing Bile’s Secluded so I can start my review of that… I dunno if I will make it back.

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            Fuck man. That sheeet is noisy.

          • #teamedward #stayedward #void

            Interview is in the bag, too. I am just waiting for him to respond to the last, closing interview questions but he seems to have gone AWOL the last couple of days, lol. I got nothing but time.

          • What’s a void?

          • #teamedward #stayedward #void

            From whence we came, so soon we will return, the Void.

  • STAY 144P (for youtube streams)

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

      Dat album cover only makes the song better.

    • VV.

      Hail the grindprophet.

    • *obligatory grnd*

    • Scrimm

      DAT RIFF

  • Nordling Beerhands Karhu

    HA-FRICKEN-ZAHH!

    • VV.

      Don’t get too excited. The gloomier Finn said shipping for you would be a bear.

      • #teamedward #stayedward #void

        punz/10

      • Nordling Beerhands Karhu

        I shall bear this burden

      • Death

        I have a name!

        • You Need More Marxism

          • Death

            U feelin clever?

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Trailer P

            You Need More Jimmy

    • Nordling Beerhands Karhu

      Now I need only cry until Industrialslaven too is re-released

  • NefariousDude

    I’ve only listened to inhale / exhale and helvete but I’m not sure if I truly dig this band. I’m always wanting more groove or something. Or maybe I’m an asshole and should re listen

    • Scrimm

      Relistening would be a good idea. It took a while for Nasum to really hit me but now they are one of my all time favorites.

      • NefariousDude

        Will do. I really like that world builder or what ever song off of inhale.

    • Gvrp

      Shift has more breakdowns. I think.

  • NefariousDude

    What the fuck has happened to all the usernames around here? Did I miss something? Lolol

    • #teamedward #stayedward #void

      It’s been a thing for awhile now. First was #RiotAct6664ADay where everyone changed their name to some variation of RiotAct666. Then a lot of people went the “trailer pants” route, now it’s kind of a free for all shitshow of username debauchery.

      • NefariousDude

        Lol I love the Internet. #voidboi

        • #teamedward #stayedward #void

          #staynoid

      • NefariousDude

        Literally after posting this I rubbed my eyes and forgot I cut up habanero peppers 10 minutes prior. What conspired in the next three minutes was the most painful blinding stumble to the shower I have ever had. My eyes are still burning lolololol #void

    • Xan

      I’ll never change, baby.

  • I always liked Nasum and after they were no more I grew to love them. They were just on another level in terms of songwriting. So glad I saw them on that farewell tour a few years back, that was a good time.

  • Nordling Beerhands Karhu

    The one thing that pisses me of in Nasum is that when they did Mieszko tribute gigs with Kiisseli-Keijo “G” Niinimaa (rotten sound) they only did MDF.

  • Xan

    Sweet! Nasum is one of my favorite grind bands (though I probably won’t buy these because I don’t own anything that can play vinyl).

  • Gurp

    Nasum is the sole reason I got into grind.

  • Howard Dean

    Not related to Nasum, but related to Relapse:
    Remember those “30 for $30” CD grab bags that Relapse was/is selling in their web store? A dude on metal-archives bought. As crazy as it sounds (even at $1 a CD), it’s NOT worth it. Pretty shitty selection. This is what he got:

    1. Soat – Dastgaah
    2. Daath Shadow – Crown For Kings
    3. Hugi – Solarliod
    4&5. Neptune – Acts of Supremacy
    6. ART 238 – Empire of the Atom
    7. Brazil – A Hostage and the Meaning of Life
    8. Mourning Caress – Inner Exile
    9. Rabies Caste – S/T
    10. Gruntsplatter – Chronicling the Famine
    11. Enemy of Myself – The Fury
    12. Maxmillion – S/T
    13&14. Obliterate – Something Wrong
    15. Apartment 213 – Cleveland Power Violence
    16&17. Sanctus Daemoneon – Grey Metropolis
    18. Angel Hair – Pregnant With the Senior Class
    19. Souless Profanation – Summoning Heresy
    20. Black River – Black N’ Roll
    21. Muad’dib – The Spark Marks the End
    22. On Paths of Torment – The Arsonist Plague
    23. Lacuna Coil – Broken Crown Halo Deluxe Edition
    24. Adastra – Death or Domination
    25&26. Bhelliom – The Colossal Tragedy
    27. Greifenstein – Von Inneren Welten
    28. Rwake – Voices of Omens (Japanese Edition)
    29. Postmortem – Constant Hate
    30. Domination Black – Haunting

    What a pile of shit. And you’re not supposed to get any duplicates, and the dude got 4!

    • Look on the bright side, now you have 30 skeet discs for only 30 bucks

  • Inhale/Exhale one of the few grind albums I actually enjoyed. Thanks for putting the other albums, need to spin them too 🙂
