Intrigued by the thought of a doom band from Israel, and trusting Relapse not to bother putting their weight behind something that wasn't worth a listen, I shelled out $10 and bought "Saved By Fear" by Dukatalon. This sort of whim purchase doesn't always work out for me, but I keep doing it because of the occasional gem like this. Dukatalon slay. Nothing ground-breaking, just quality sludgy/atmoshperic doom. Reminds me a lot of Zoroaster, but more consistently heavy (other than the one acoustic track, which for me is out of place and unwanted--a minor gripe for an overall excellent album). Is Dukatalon a complete anomaly in Israel? I have no freakin' clue. I do know this has been on heavy rotation for me the last several weeks.
