I used the word as a verb instead of a noun, which led to the opening line "Picture a masked face". That's one way to write songs. A personal favorite. Digging In - 18 seconds of total mayhem. No comments! Time To Act! I don't know why bands pick this song, maybe it's because its easy structure and the easy riffs? A funny song but I always feel bad when I hear it due to a recording error. I know if we'd written this song two albums later we would have had the bass playing the verse one octave lower.
As it is today it only sounds weak and thin and that's bad! Disdain And Contempt - Short and weird hardcore song that we used to combine with "Blinded". Very weird rhythms in the beginning, almost ugly. I See Lies - "I See Lies" is the fastest song on the album, at least it feels like that due to the aggressive vibe in all parts.
Live it got fast as hell! The noisy thing in the beginning is actually a guitar chord from a miked amp rubbed against a metal chair!
Originally we were supposed to have a guitarsolo on that part but the riff changed scales all of the time which made it impossible to compose something that didn't sound out of tune, and I guess the chord just fell on the chair as we were unplugging it from the guitar. We liked the sound and recorded the "solo"! The idea was also to write a song that had an industrial stiffness. When we did our first tour in the US we started all but one show with this song, which might seem a little bit strange, but it was our first tour and we wanted to start with a "warm up" song.
I think the one thing that makes it stand out is that you can't compair it with any other Nasum song. It's not grind or crust, it's not a mosh song, it's I don't know what it is! Mary J. My Funny Valentine. Chaka Khan. Sonja Marie. All Night Long. Wey U. My Love, Sweet Love. Patti LaBelle. Kissing You. So we did another cover and sent it to Relapse. I then got a call from Matt Jacobsen asking me: "Where are all the gasmasks?
I told him about our cold feet and he said that they would take the risk. So I sent him the picture and another small picture that ended up on the CD print. The "Venice picture" Relapse found in a book. The cover turned out excellent and the gasmasks became a gimmick for Nasum. About the vinyl versions Again I don't remember all the details but I guess we decided to have a bonus 7" with only covers coming with the LP before we started recording the album.
The covers were personal favorites that we'd been inspired by. Maybe some odd choices like the Refused and Propagandhi songs, but in my opinion a good track is a good track. I must also mention that members from all bands except S. Some time before the first recording, Mieszko [Talarczyk] joined the band.
We liked grindcore in general and just wrote some stuff. The next recording for Nasum was for a Swedish hardcore compilation and every band got 3. Since this was the 9th volume of the compilation, I had a look at the previous volumes to see what band had crammed the most number of songs in the provided time limit. They got so short and to the point that we had 30 seconds to go, so another three songs were written. This efficiency was a very important step in the formation of the Nasum sound.
The last piece of the sound puzzle was the departure of Rickard, which left us without a drummer and singer. How many times have you told me that you'll get things done? And how many times have I seen you with empty hands? Why is it always so fucking hard to keep a promise?
How should I ever trust you when You disappoint me! Again and again! How many times have I stood alone waiting for you? And how many times have I walked away deserted? I don't need your explainations they mean nothing to me I will never trust you, 'cause Stare me in my eyes and tell me that you don't care Try to convince me that you will not try to change You are nothing - you're obsolete You are really nothing - you're disposable All the work and no play will surely make you numb But endless wandering isn't the solution You are nothing - you're obsolete You are really nothing - you're disposable All the work and no play will surely make you numb You are - nothing!
Endless wandering isn't the solution You are - nothing! Are you the brave one? Would you dare to defy their cause? Can you stand up for yourself? Back up your thoughts with more than just empty words? That you're absolutely right? Do you actually believe? Believe that what you say is really true? Streams Videos All Posts.
