ASSÜCK was an american grindcore band from Saint Petersburg Florida, active from 1987 to 1998. The band proved influential with their album Anticapital (1992) voted number 4 in the Terrorizer list of their top 20 US grindcore albums, who described it as a "low-calibre battery of brooding, malicious, doom-ridden grind pitched somewhere between early Napalm Death and even earlier Bolt Thrower". According to journalist Greg Pratt, "Assück were an incredible band with probably metal's best drummer [Rob Proctor], although no one ever mentions his name. They combined shockingly well-written poetic and political lyrics with catchy songs, insane musicianship and a short-fast-loud brutality that no one has topped since. Writing for "Maximumrockandroll", Felix von Havoc describes the political punk and metal roots of this band, stating "Assuck managed to combine the anger, fury and social commentary of a anarcho punk band with the musicianship and production quality of a technical heavy metal band.

How does a band manage to play this fast without taking heavy dosages of speed? How does the singer growl that deeply with out straining his vocal chords? Who cares, as long as ASSÜCK continues to perform and release albums like "Anti-Capital". With 15 songs that clock in under 16 minutes, these guys blaze through some of the most politically charged grindcore at an inhuman speed. This absolutely rules.
