Nasum's final farewell lineup
Nasum

wow. From a press release:

"You thought NASUM was dead? We are. This is not resurrection. It's farewell, for good."

"If things were different, if Mieszko hadn't died, NASUM would have celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2012. Therefore, after long deliberation and scrutiny, we have decided that it's now or never: We will do a handful of shows around the world in 2012 - to celebrate our anniversary, say a final goodbye to the fans and Mieszko. No cheesy reunion, no new albums, no epitaph for Mieszko. We will play only a few places in a limited number of disruptive, unruly concerts. It will be a total blast, and we aim to go out hard. Just you wait.

...In the years that passed, the feeling that everything had been left unfinished lingered with the rest of us. Suddenly seven years had passed, and we realized it was time for closure; for us, the band and for the fans. With our anniversary coming up it felt like a perfect time to end the band the way it was supposed to - exploding in a ferocious, blasting frenzy, not wither away at the mercy of tragedy. And finally we are ready, able, and totally fucking charged, so expect something over the top.

To handle vocal duties on the upcoming shows we have asked Keijo Niinimaa, vocalist in grind favorites Rotten Sound, to join us. They were always close friends of ours, and while Keijo's plagued screams won't replace Mieszko, they will add a certain viciousness to the shows. On a few occasions, we might ask a few other close friends of the band to do some vocal sessions. Who? Wait and see! If you ever wanted to see NASUM blast shit to bits, this is your last and only chance."

No word on any specific dates, but we'll keep you informed.

Vocalist/guitarist and co-founder Mieszko Talarczyk died in the December 2004 tsunami disaster that followed the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. Members went on to focus on projects like Regurgitate, Coldworker, Victims, and Sayyadina.

This calls for a BV/1000 Knives event. Have Pyrrhon, Defeatist and Humanity Falls open.

can everyone get their sausage comments out now so the rest of us can enjoy the show?

^ I think the sausage comments have been dying off lately. At least it's not as polluted with them as it was a few months back.
