Probably my favorite grindcore band of all time... the legendary Assück! While most bands of this genre just don't hold my interest for very long, something about Assück just grabbed me from first listen and never let me go. It must have something to do with their technique. While most grindcore ensembles just seem to sort of "hash it out" and aimlessly blast through anything in their path, Assück digs deep to find a perfect combination of impressive political lyrics, ultra-technical instrumental prowess, and a masterful sense of control, all wrapped up in a no-hold-barred crusty blast fest. It's almost as if each song is a "Reign In Blood" compressed into 50 seconds!
