Video Review: Nasum — “Blasting Shit To Bits”

Nasum. For grindcore fans worldwide, this is a name that will live in infamy and a name that will be whispered for evermore. Between their four full lengths, Inhale/Exhale, Human 2.0, Helvete, and Shift, these Swedes became a household name for those of us looking for that extra bit of extreme that the far corners of metal offered if one was willing to seek out. However, with the 2004 tragic Indian Ocean tsunami incident that took the life of frontman Mieszko Talarczyk, the band went silent and rightfully so. They had lost a major piece of the puzzle in a tragic way and struggled with this loss. But, in 2012, what would’ve been the band’s 20th anniversary, they decided to hit 60 cities in a last blast sort of way with Rotten Sound’s Keijo Niinimaa¬†on vocals and Director¬†Michael Panduro capturing their final performance in October of the same year. The results are nothing short of exemplary but no surprises there as Nasum were always exemplary. This is a Christmas gift like no other and I’m giving you all the links below so do yourself a solid and BUY IT. Thank me later.
