      Blood Duster's second E.P. (1996).

      Grindcore was frequently an amusingly bad genre, and Melbourne's Blood Duster (the band would prefer "Blöod Düster," but I'm not going to give them the satisfaction) certainly brought nothing new to its narrow horizons. Needlessly depraved lyrics of murder, rape and child molestation seek the attention of easily pleased grindcore fans, and what little promise the music shows at an early stage is soon overtaken by laziness and the desire to be obtuse. Some grindcore bands do this really well, producing entertaining albums fullof ten-second outbursts leading nowhere, but Blood Duster are not one of them.

      Amateurishness is the order of the day here, from the awful lyrics that rhyme "splattered corpse" with "knife and fork" and don't even seem to be joking, to the repetitive guitars and drums that play pretty much the same thing over and over again, when a song lasts for more than six seconds that is. Tony Forde's vocals are based in the same deep guttural growl characteristic of the whole genre, with occasional screamed outbursts that are reasonably successful in conveying greater emotion, but Finn Alman's guitar disappoints severely after producing some fairly catchy (albeit unoriginal) groove riffs in tracks one and two.

      After this point, the short recording really does go nowhere fast, and at times goes nowhere painfully slowly. With tracks three, five and six becoming increasingly brief, the whispered growls and slow riffs of 'Chuck' seem to last forever at just under two minutes, and the six-second 'Strop' is followed by the somehow even less satisfying 'Nasty Chicks,' which spends most of its near-five-minute playing time in tedious guitar feedback masquerading as a sort of solo.

      Grindcore freaks may enjoy the band's abrasiveness and bad attitude, but coming in the mid-nineties, it's not like they were the first to do it. In grindcore terms, they're being practically mainstream.
