It eases in slow but deliberately, like an implied threat. Then it delivers, with a metallic squall of iron black clouds. It’s the new 10-inch EP from BUGDUST, widely reputed as the toughest bands in Australia.
The bone-hammering four-piece from Bayswater, Melbourne, released their debut EP, Set to Snap, in October, 2003. They followed it up with punishing, hard'n'fast rock'n'roll shows all over the country including tours with Grinspoon and the prestigious Falls Festival, dragging hardcore fans from the woodwork by sheer force.
BUGDUST’s blistering, Sabbath-inspired rock made itself heard in the USA within months. Index Records signed the band in 2004 and immediately extended an invitation for the band to record their debut LP in America in early 2005. These sessions will be followed by their first, extensive US tour in March.
The BUGDUST EP is early warning of what promises to be a stunning hard rock debut. The independently released 10-inch vinyl record is an instant collectors’ item consisting of three killer new songs: Sixty Days of Nights, Dead by Dawn and Bloodpool. All of which were recorded and produced by BUGDUST with the legendary Cam McKenzie (Horsehead) in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. This classic package is available in strictly limited numbers.
