Nasum – Doombringer

Live album number two this month from bands that aren’t around anymore. Nasum’s history came to a sudden halt in 2004 after lead singer/guitarist, Mieszko Talarczyk, died in the tsunami while vacationing in Thailand. But not before he and the rest of Nasum made quite a big splash (no pun intended) in the grindcore scene with their albums and more than anything else, with their charged live performances.

Relapse now unleashes the final chapter with “Doombringer”, a 25-minute live set the band recorded in Osaka on their final Japanese tour. Everything sounds great and even a non-grindcore fan like yours truly got sucked in by so much energy. Just like a nailbomb, this is fast, brutal, lethal as hell and highly effective. Talarczyk already let us know from the other side, that he agrees and that you should always go to bed with a surfboard… just in case!
