Published Nov 13, 2014Ten years after Nasum delivered their last studio album, 2004's Shift, Relapse Records has announced that it is putting all four of the Swedish grindcore outfit's albums back on wax through a new reissue campaign.
Noting that each album has been out of print for the better part of a decade, the label has confirmed that new pressings of 1998's Inhale/Exhale, 2000's Human 2.0, 2003's Helvete and swan song Shift are being delivered December 19 through the Relapse online shop. They should hit brick and mortar retailers January 27.
Each record is being packaged in a gatefold sleeve, with liner notes written by guitarist/drummer Anders Jakobson. The albums are being served up on a few different colours of vinyl beyond their standard black wax pressings. All four LPs will also come in 500 copy runs on "gold and white merge with black, gold, and red splatter,"as well as 100 units each on clear vinyl.
Pre-order pages for the separate releases, as well as a few bundle options, are up over here.
Shortly after the band released The Shift in the fall of 2004, vocalist Mieszko Talarczyk was killed in Thailand during the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. His death was confirmed in early 2005, with Nasum announcing their disbandment at the time. The group had, however, celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2012 with reunion dates that featured Rotten Sound singer Keijo Niinimaa taking over vocal duties.
