Nasum

Inhale/Exhale

Relapse

These guys are from Sweden? No way! I don’t believe it, all bands from Sweden are supposed to sound like the Entombed! OK, so these guys march to the beat of a different drum. In fact the drum they march to is about ten times faster then anything else out of Sweden. There seems to be a resurgence of underground grindcore popping up and coming at us from all different directions. Bands like Nasum are putting out albums with no-holds-barred that are totally dedicated to controlled noise. You could almost say the same thing that people first said about punk rock back in the ’70s. “It’s just noise” and “All the songs are less then a minute long!”

Great stuff really. If you enjoy grindcore or any type of music played to its most extreme with 38 songs in less then 45 minutes then this is for you. http://come.to/nasum Relapse, P.O. Box 251, Millersville, PA 17751; http://www.relapse.com
