I guess they still do, their new album sounds more mainstream/accessible though. The song i posted even has gotten some airtime on national radio.
And regarding if grindcore is metal or punk, I generally lean towards classifying (modern) grindcore as metal. Altough it depends from record to record IMO, some are more punk than others. I've seen more metalheads with Repulsion patches than I've seen punks with them for example, not that it proves anything.
I guess one way to divide it is if they use double bass or a single kick, I mean, double bass isn't very punk. So that would place Nasum in the punk category, altough to me, this sounds more like metal than punk.
And then throw the whole pornocore-genre into the mix and I just don't know. (sidenote, Carcass?)
But bands like Siege which I'm rather sure did influence the early parts of grindcore sure play "punk" rather than metal.
