audiObelisk EXCLUSIVE TRACK PREMIERE: Dukatalon’s “Electric Site” from Their Relapse Debut, Saved by Fear
Vicious Israeli sludgers Dukatalon make their Relapse Records debut with Saved by Fear, an eight-track (not to be confused with an 8-track, though that would also rule) beast of seething aural abrasion. Some music just feels like it’s cutting you while you listen, and that’s what Saved by Fear does. With songs like “Vagabond” and “Gate of Mind,” its heaviness comes as much from the oppressive atmospherics as from the thick bass of Lior Mayer, the riffs of Zafrir Zori or Yariv Shilo‘s drums. Any way you look at it, though, you’re basically getting your ass kicked for a solid 46 minutes.
“Electric Site,” at 9:01, is the longest slab on Saved by Fear, and I think also my personal favorite. It’s like the twisted bastard son of “Dopesmoker.” Relapse was kind enough to grant The Obelisk permission to host the track exclusively for your sonic punishment, so please, by all means, stream it on the player below and enjoy.
