"The Barley And Yeast Brain Glaze" (Self-produced)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Asskicker gets the Rough Edge Award for most aptly named band because they do just that - kick ass, plain and simple.
Thunderous from the start, Asskicker paints a bleak, dark and warped version of reality that sucks you in hard and fast. This Michigan band is one of the best heavy metal/hard rock acts I've heard in awhile and, if this release is any indication of what to expect, Asskicker is going to be big.
This is what metal should be: hard, fast, loud and outstanding music with tongue-in-cheek songs that are fun to listen to and that kick your metal ass the entire way. This shit is for real and I strongly recommend Asskicker to anybody who needs a good ass kickin'!
Asskicker: Frank Lazorishchak - vocals; Ryan Mazur - guitar; Mike Gay - bass; Derek Mitea - drums.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
