Label: Sound Pollution Records
As far as I’m concerned, Misery Index is everything grind should be. The final album from death/grind pioneers Assück is a fifteen minute dose of furious riffs, punishing drumming, and commanding vocals. Misery Index is laced with an intelligent socio-political edge that gives the songs a feeling of timeless relevancy, and a hardcore energy that ensures the music is never less than thrilling. This is everything grind can ever aspire to be, delivered in blistering form, and is still showing the way, over twenty years since release.
