Rusty Barnacles is from Melbourne and sent me a CD ages ago called 'Slobbergutz' which I only just got round to reviewing. Sorry! It is HEAVY, metal fans!
The envleope the CD came in also included a packet of smarties. A bribe perhaps???!!!
This stuff is heavy and weird Maaaan!!!!!!!!!!!
It is very well recorded and I have no idea where it was recorded. I presume Rusty is one person and has recorded everything, I don't think it's a band is it? (Correct me if I'm wrong.)
First track is 'Whatyoudid!' which is complete with heavy Korn guitars and vocals as well as talking (rapping?) as well.
Next up is title track 'Slobbergutz.' The bio says it is the best display of technical wizardry. Can't argue with that. He seems to know what he's doing.
The next two songs continue along this path of Industrial /techno/noise/metal/singing/rapping/screaming type stuff with 'Spank the Monkey' going for a lenghty 47 seconds!
Last track 'This is dedicated to........' is a techno delight in the vein of that Triple J hit 'Speedracer'. In fact I could hear it on the J's without a doubt.
This music is not for the faint-hearted but it is very well done to say the least!
