Blood Duster - _DFF_
(High Voltage Records, 2003)
by: Xander Hoose (9 out of 10)
Blood Duster's full-length _Cunt_ received quite some mixed reviews. Their return to no-nonsense death metal Aussie-style was a joy to those who enjoyed Blood Duster's early material, while fans of their later material criticized the lack of groove and rock attitude. _DFF_ (short for "Drink, Fight, Fuck") is an acceptable compromise between the two. Even though this EP is very short, with only six minutes of actual music -- which includes two splendid GG Allin covers: "Drink, Fight, Fuck" and "Let's Fuck" -- the remaining material gives a good idea of the direction Blood Duster is heading: short songs (none clocking over one minute) that are very accessible and very reminiscent of the _Yeest_ songs. There's still the Blood Duster trademark humor (check out "66.6 on Your FM Dial") and the production is still heavy as a brick. Let's hope there's a new full-length in the works soon. Two points of critique on this album, though: leave the noise tracks out, and 55 minutes of silence is plain annoying. The EP is good enough on its own, without the bullshit.
