If you think all Israeli metal sounds like Orphaned Land, well, you got another thing comin’. The raw, heaving, miserable fucking sludge of Dukatalon marks them as The Holy Land’s most unholy trio; they’ve been likened to Eyehategod, and it’s an apt comparison. It’s like they looked around went, “Well, this sucks — WE’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FUCKING DESERT,” and then made music to express the sensation of dying from thirst (slowly and agonizingly). Dukatalon make metal so thick that if you try to put your fist through it, you’ll just get stuck, consumed, and killed. It’s evil, evil, EVIL shit.

It’s also really, really, REALLY good.

Dukatatlon will release their Relapse debut, Saved by Fear, on December 14, but good ol’ MetalSucks already has a little sumpin’ sumpin’ for ya. Check out the new track “ZX” below, and then, once your mind is appropriately wrecked, you can pre-order the album right here. And, of course, you can sample some more music over at Dukatalon’s MySpace page.
