Nasum frontman missing in Thailand

As you know, a massive earthquake struck Southern Asia this past weekend, causing tidal waves which ultimately affected some eleven countries. Sadly, it appears that the metal community did not go unscathed, as Nasum guitarist/vocalist Mieszko Talarczyk was vacationing in Thailand and is now missing. Here's the official statement from the band: "It's very hard for us to make this announcement, but since rumours are already out on the Internet we must make an official statement: Mieszko Talarczyk is missing in Thailand. Mieszko and his girlfriend went to Thailand to spend the holidays. They left a few days before Christmas and were scheduled to return right after New Years Eve. They were staying in a bungalow at Phi Phi Island and when the big wave came and swept the bungalow away the two were seperated. Mieszko's girlfriend is being reported hospitalized 'badly injured' but she has been in contact with among others Mieszko's sister who has been posting an 'I'm looking for...' at the Phuket Disaster Forum. This is everything we know right now. Since we are all shocked by this surreal situation we strongly advice fans of Nasum to respect the anxiety we and the Talarczyk and Thorén families feel at this time, and NOT post questions by email or in the guestbook at We will post all sorts of news on the website, but again, please respect our wish in this uneasy time."
