Nasum Posts New Road Report

Nasum is currently embarked on a final farewell European tour, and the band has now checked in with a new road report. Excerpts from the report are available below, or you can find the full thing complete with pictures over at the Nasum website here.

September 28 - Madness In Munich

On the second show out of three in Germany we went to the Backstage complex in Munich. Apparently we've been here before, during the long tour with Napalm Death back in 2001. I had gotten this place mixed up with the Feierwerk or possibly Hansa 39 which are two previous venues I've been to in Munich. Imagine my surprise when I woke up in what can only be described as an jungle… The entire complex is surrounded by palm trees and other plants and I had no idea where we were.

The complex has a number of halls in different sizes and we played in the "Club" which is one of the smaller ones, if not the smallest one. I believe there were four different things happening at Backstage at the same time so it felt quite weird. Would there be any people coming to our show?

I spent most of the day in pain. My back was aching badly due to unknown reasons. Maybe a combination of a weird sleeping position and a cold that only struck the back. I was feeling it already in Geneva but in Munich it was really bad. Luckily we had a nice backstage area far away from the stage so I could take it easy and take care of some internet business.

Forgotten Tomb Confirmed For Extremefest 2012

Extremefest 2012 will take place in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland on the following dates:

5. July 2012 - 7. July 2012 DE – Hünxe, ExtremeFest Germany
5. July 2012 - 7. July 2012 AT – Salzburg, ExtremeFest Austria
5. July 2012 – 7. July 2012 CH – Pratteln, ExtremeFest Switzerland

The organizers of Extremefest have now issued the following announcement about confirming Forgotten Tomb and Ultrawurscht:

"Forgotten Tomb been around since 1999 and the Italians have caused quite a stir in the black and dark metal underground! 'Songs To Leave' (2002) or 'Love`s Burial Ground' (2004) are rightfully considered milestones of melancholic dark metal that the fourpiece infuses with doom and black metal elements. In 2011, Forgotten Tomb released their most recent effort 'Under Saturn Retrograde' and fans can look forward to one of the rare appearances of the Italians at the Austrian and German editions of Extremefest!

"It´s all about the sausage with Bavarian / Austrian act Ultrawurscht! Their highly explosive mixture of death metal, grind and hardcore – or simply 'Wurschtcore' – will one day conquer the world, and if you had the chance to check out albums such as 'Cheese Ass Built My Hot Dog' you`ll agree! Mixing metal and sausages should be declared a form of art anyway, so slap some wieners on the grill before checking out Ultrawurscht`s exclusive set at the Austrian edition of the Extremefest 2012!"

So far these bands have been confirmed to play Extremefest 2012: More...

Nasum To Play Farewell Shows

Sweden's Nasum will reconvene for a limited number of farewell performances in 2012. Nasum was hit hard by the passing of guitarist and co-founder Mieszko Talarczyk in the 2004 Asian tsunami, but will announce the farewell performances shortly to mark the group’s 20th anniversary and close the book on the band.

In a joint statement, the members of Nasum (Anders Jakobson: drums, Jesper Liverod: bass/vocals, Urab Skytt: guitars, Jon Lindquist: guitars/vocals) had the following to say:

“You thought Nasum was dead? We are. This is not resurrection. It’s farewell, for good. If things were different, if Mieszko hadn’t died, Nasum would have celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2012. Therefore, after long deliberation and scrutiny, we have decided that it’s now or never: We will do a handful of shows around the world in 2012 - to celebrate our anniversary, say a final goodbye to the fans and Mieszko. No cheesy reunion, no new albums, no epitaph for Mieszko. We will play only a few places in a limited number of disruptive, unruly concerts. It will be a total blast, and we aim to go out hard. Just you wait.

"When Nasum co-founder and lead singer Mieszko Talarczyk died in the devastating and tragic Asian tsunami of 2004, Nasum instantly ceased to exist. As the band’s voice, producer and one of the main songwriters, Mieszko was a vital part of the band’s bloodline. When he passed, all plans for tours and recordings were abruptly stopped. Nasum died when Mieszko died, and the rest of the band members went their separate ways. More...
