Romanian grindcore obessesors, Blutrina, are exactly how you'd perceive them upon stumbling across this record in your local family friendly supermarket. 'Looney Fuckin' Grind' is an album that your grandparents will buy you for Christmas because they assume you're alternative because you've probably got a nose-ring, or died your hair at least once in the past three years. 

Raging from the get-go, catchy grind is spilled like semen in your bedsheets as your face becomes pummelled with the aggression and angst this record transmits, and this is just from the starting track, 'Fucking Shit'. The album continues down this path using comedic cartoon based samples, relying heavily on these to spice up the variety. Whilst these are not always dependant throughout, they do give the listener something extra to masturbate to. 

'I Know Something I Won't Tell' provides wacky pig squeals and the album's reliant death metal belch-like vocals. This is a favourite among the record for me, but the squeaky high pitched screams in 'Chaotic Masturbation' are refreshing, and I demand more of these. 'No More Shitting' is a cover of somewhat pop crap from the 90's or whatever; Reminding me of times as a child leaping on my next-door neighbour's massive trampoline at a family BBQ party. 

'Arise And Crush' is most likely the more serious metal track among the album. With riffs the size of god's fists, and death metal roars colliding together, making an anthem worth blasting out slightly louder than the remaining tracks here. Then leading onto laugh-out-loud tracks such as 'Quagmire', 'Paranoid Pussy', and the baffling titled, 'Defleshing Porky Pig'. 

The record is fast despite being 18 tracks in length, most of these clock in under two minutes. Their grindcore genre is often approached with a hardcore vibe, something I find interesting, and potentially taken into account that their influences range between Cytotoxin and Milking The Goat Machine. Other influences listed include Looney Tunes, Family Guy and South Park...for obvious reasons.

Whilst on first listens to this record you're probably wondering what on earth Blutrina are trying to achieve. Many extreme metal bands aim for the comedic route in metal, and most fail miserably. Blutrina hit the nail on the tip of the penis with 'Looney Fuckin' Grind' as this album becomes memorable, messy, but most of all it's more fun than finding rare pogs in your crisp packets.
