Inhale/Exhale may be the popular choice but Nasum‘s true foray into brilliance was on Human 2.0; a record that grabbed grindcore by the balls and dragged it biting and gnashing into the 21st century.

With newly-channeled songwriting prowess, Nasum pushed themselves to the brink of grindcore acceptability. With more than a hint of melody and mainstream metal riffs jostling with the expected bursts of hyper-mania and feral barks and shouts courtesy of sadly deceased frontman Mieszko Talarczyk, Nasum may have p*ssed off the purists but in return Relapse Records had on their hands a ground-breaking record to kick off the new millennium.

Grindcore always had a tendency to inflict mindless damage but where Human 2.0 succeeded was in embracing musicality and offering light to Nasum’s previously cavernous shade. 

Nasum truly walked the wire on Human 2.0 and transformed the grindcore landscape as a result. Human 2.0 could have been entitled grindcore 2.0 as Nasum set about altering the genre’s parameters once again.

  1. Through Silver In Blood is a truly terrifying listen that leaves you feeling drained after playing it. Heavy in every sense of the word.

    Saw them in Belfast when the album came out as support for Entombed. The crowd was just transfixed on the stage for the duration of their set, poor Entombed didn’t stand a chance coming on after them.

    Incantantion – Onward to Golgotha?

  4. Great list, but I’d add Incantation, Burnt by the Sun, Coalesce, and Necrophagist.
