Think Wax Trax. Think of the most awesome days of industrial music. When you hear Dread Risks, you'll get the old-school, juicy, pounding, basslines and thick percussion sounds that are guaranteed to bring back the fondest of memories of one of electronic music's greatest era.”

Dread Risks are more Youth Code / Author & Punisher than Nine Inch Nails, bringing a distinctly modern approach to the industrial metal canon rather than trafficking in nostalgia.”

Industrial project Dread Risks have released a music video for their song 're/coil'. Taken off of their self-titled album, the music video is just as experimental as the band's sound.”

“I know next to nothing about this industrial duo other than they are from Austin, TX, and on the evidence of this track, they have more than a passing knowledge of classic industrial stylings.

 

[re/coil] is nasty. It’s malevolent and snarling, with treated, pitch-shifted vocals from the depths of hell and a dense, pounding mix that allows the synth hooks to drag the drums along with them. In short, it’s exactly the kind of industrial music I love…”

“I have a soft spot in my heart for that end of the industrial music spectrum.  These tastes have led me to cover a number of excellent newer acts carrying the torch such as 3Teeth and Dead When I Found Her; but most recently I heard from a Texas duo by the name of dread risks. Listing influences that include Ministry, NIN, :Wumpscut:, and Youth Code, the new self titled album is taking me back to gloomy high school days listening to VIVIsectVI, Too Dark Park, and Rabies.”
