The walls are rock lath.
First forget the dura bond. Seal the walls with a sealer primer called Gardz. Then there is a new product out called fibraFuse not to be confused with Fibra Tape it comes in 36" wide rolls cover the wall with this then skim coat with the lite or ultra lite joint compound, sand, prime, paint. you can find the Fibra Fuse at all wall.com.
