Wordpress has a bulk delete for spam comments.... takes literally seconds to do for me

Maybe an improved CAPCHA or word verification system? If it's consistently the same IP, you could always block the IP address they are coming from.

Or get a wordpress api key and use their plugin to spot those for you by querying a central database.

No more spam for you if you do that

The akismet plug-in is the best and has helped me a lot. Otherwise simple bulk deleting is your best bet currently

Use your comment blacklist in settings > discussions

You can put in as many words, phrases, url's and IP addresses you want to block comments from. If anybody wants my list built up over the last two years, I made a text file here that you can use.

Since you are using WordPress, there is a plug-in called Akismet, that will protect your blog from spam comments. It would be a great help for your blog.
