Can't say I've ever reviewed anything from South Korea before, but at least I started with a damn fine Thrash band. Duoxini are a quartet from Seoul that formed in 2018, and as a new band they've impressed me by releasing this head stomper of an EP. If you know Thrash, then you know what these boys are going to give you, as they borrow liberally from bands all across the Thrash spectrum like Sepultura, Megadeth, Exodus, Destruction, and even Havok. Crisp, heavy riffs that stumble over each other out of the speaker, nice solos, and the deranged vocals of bassist/vocalist Easyoon that sound like he's spewing someone else's guts out over the microphone are what this band is all about, and they even manage a killer song with the title track, which may as well be a rewrite of Sepultura's "Inner Self". The lyrics are also predictably Thrash in that they're angry, politically charged, and not very good. The language barrier might have a hand in this, but then again poorly written lyrics about society and how worthless we are are par for the course, so I'll let it slide either way. If aggressive, varied Thrash is what you're looking for, or if you just want to get your feet wet in the South Korean scene, then this EP is a good place to start. Here's hoping for a full-length sometime in the near future.
