Year:  1997

Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  15
Time:  33 min.
Lyrical themes:  anarchism , pacifism
Genre:  rock

Second album of these masters and despite is very good, perhaps not than its predecesor. In general the band made here song very similars in all aspects (short, speed, lyrical themes, etc.) but the general sound here is noisier and dirtier. It continue to be grindcore, of course, but with these two elements in comparaison with its debut long album.

In fact this link here below (Bandcamp) has not the ASSÜCK debut album, but all its discography together. But the label which made this compilation used the cover and artwork of the debut "Anticapital". Only 30 minutes, no more, of intensity, speed and furious grindcore with some differences that then (1991) made this band and this album almos unique. First of all, to mention Agathocles was not alone in that genre theyselves called as "mince-core" late 80s, which very few bands could be describe as it like early Napalm Death or perhaps Terrorizer. ASSÜCK started its musical career in 1987 with an style quite dirty and close to fast-core, until this "Anti-Capital", when the band show its high technical level, high quality studio sound and its intelligen and original lyrics. Striclty musical  ASSÜCK sounded some kind of "metalized" grindcore perhaps a bit far from typical gutural death-metal and closer to thrash-metal, thraschcore or "crossover" sound. My personal opinion is ASSÜCK more similar to Terrorizer than Napalm Death. My first contact with them was with their EP "State to hate" (1993) and quickly I searched for their two other albums. Total classic and of course highly recommended.

Format:  cassette
Tracks:  18
Time:  17 min.
Lyrical themes:  anarchism , pacifism

Well finally I got to listen to ASSÜCK live concert for the first time in my life. This is a short live made in Chicago in 1997, few time before they disbanded. The recording I fought in a blog called "Old Fast and Loud" and you can find more live sets. The quality sound is franky not very good, but despite this you can percive the speed and powerful of the band.
