Grindcore is an interesting genre to classify something as. The only real distiction as labeling something as grindcore is over excessive blast beats and 30 second songs played at insane speed. There are some grind bands that sound more like a hardcore band and there are some that straight up sound like a death metal band. Even comparing the two founding fathers of grindcore to each other you can see the difference…. If you don’t know, their names are Repulsion and Napalm Death. Anyway enough ranting let me get to my point….
Motherfucking Assück’s compilation of their work from 91-94 Anticapital/Blindspot +3 is one of the most technical, intelligent, ear crushing, government condemning, anarchistic, straight to the point, blasting, perfect mix of grind and death metal albums ever compiled.
Though only being 24 minutes (with 27 songs) this is one of the most complete grindcore releases you can ever listen to. Assück has a sound to them that no other grindcore band has ever had. There is just some sort of magic that exists on this compilation. Everything is feirce, ferocious, vicious, and ready to destroy society on this compilation.
There is something funny about this album that no one has ever seemed to have noticed. There is a song which is called Infanticide featured on this album which is taken from ghe Blindspot EP. The track features Chris Barnes, some vocalist from some local band that sadly never made it big called Cannibal Corpse. The track is only 22 seconds long… 11 seconds of the band grinding and 11 seconds of Barnes growling “INNNNFFAAANNNNTIIIIIIIIICCCCCCCCIIIDDDDDEEEEEEE!” I shit you not, as funny as it is, that track kicks ass just like everything else on this most righteous album!
