Nasum to Reform in 2012...Kinda

Breaking fucking news everybody! In a recent statement on their website, the remaining members of Nasum have confirmed that they will reform next year with Keijo Niinimaa of Rotten Sound to man the vocal duties that would belong to the late Mieszko Talarczyk, who tragically passed away in the 2004 tsunami, thus ending Nasum. Very exciting news, but the band has made it very clear that this is not a full-fledged resurrection of Nasum; they will only be doing a handful of shows around the world(no dates yet confirmed), there will be no new album, and after this short run is over, they will disband again for good.

Admittedly, I'm not a very huge fan of Nasum. Maybe it's cause the only album I own from them is "Human 2.0", which I've heard people say isn't their best, but I would totally love the chance to see Nasum live. True, it probably won't have the same impact as seeing them with Mieszko fronting the band, but I imagine these shows being as more of celebration of his talents and the impact he Nasum had on grindcore worldwide. Here's hoping they play MDF 2012! Leave your opinions in the comment section.



  1. i prefer helvete, but i know a lot of people like the rawer sound of human 2.0.

    as for the reunion, i could live without that, but at least they're not defiling it with a new album. coldworker is bad enough.

  2. They need to play OE - that would be so cool.

    And yes, of all their albums, Human is probably my least favourite. Any of the others will set you on the path to true Nasum-worship!

  3. Man that's going to be fantastic :D
