"if i where to place this in a particular genre,i would call it grindcore,but with a super FAT death metal-like guitar tone,topped with great thought provoking "punk" lyrics.words can not prepare you for the musical orgasm that follows.having mentioned the grind element,i neednt tell you about the speed or the abrasiveness.what i will tell you is that its not chaotic crap,their really is MUSIC in here!!!!
when i put this on,i am amazed at how well the whole package holds up,and how much i still feel that adrenaline rush that doesnt stop until the silence comes.waste no more time.best couple of dollars you will ever spend."

"Five years after dropping their relentless 'Anticapital' debut, Assuck round off their legendary career with this masterpiece. The time away was obviously spent streamlining the band's horrific vision of punk-fuelled Grindcore/Death Metal into one of the greatest records the genre has ever seen.
Prepare yourself for fifteen songs of pure anger, darkness, violence and destruction. Fifteen minutes - a supersonic tornado of blast-beat fury into which Assuck effortlessly display such an incredible grasp of high-speed song dynamics that you're left wondering what the hell just happened. Pick your feeble jaw back up off the floor to read through the booklet of brutally intelligent political lyrics and prepare for the realisation that most those records in your so-called 'extreme metal' collection are now utterly superfluous, trust me - I've been there."
A hefty slab of grindcore to help pass the time at the offic

"Assuck was a wonderful band that had a passion for playing short, heavy songs. On first listen, it may seem like a complete joke, but if you have plenty of time on your hands, you might start listening more carefully to each song and trying to pick out some of the subtleties therein. If I had to describe the music, I would say fun-size bites of brutal death metal. The production isn't great, which just adds to the overall effect. However, there is some pretty decent drumming and guitar work - providing a surprising amount of variety and keeping things a little more lively than you'd expect. 'Misery Index' is a true classic of the grind genre, and a gem that any fan should have in their collection."
