Staff review by
So hailing from the deep south err, wait... Israel. Sorry. Seems most sludge albums I've been reviewing lately come from the deep south so it was automatic reaction. Oops.

Anyways, hailing from "the Riff-Filled Land" (or at least the vicinity thereof) by way of Relapse Records we find the sludgy-sludgemeisters of Dukatalon. I am not sure of the origin of the band's name, but I am fairly certain it's ancient Sumerian for "a mighty beast the size of a double-decker bus which crushes all things underfoot and leaves not enough remains for even dental records to ID". But I could be wrong.

Sludge! From the "Riff Filled Land!"

Listening to this album is akin to being beaten about the head and neck (very slowly) with blunt objects. Only I imagine listening to this album is a lot more fun than being battered by blunt objects. Slow, deep, hard and drenched in feedback.

If you still need convincing, read my review for more.
