Official press release:
Salt Lake City’s Riksha has inked a worldwide deal with Zombie Shark Records, the new record label from Noah “Shark” Robertson (Motograter, ex-The Browning) for their forthcoming album Five Stages Of Numb set for release in June. The album was recorded at Elevate Studios by notable producer and drummer for Chelsea Grin, Pablo Viveros plus album art done by Die Elster.
Riksha’s sound is affectionately known as “throg”, a mixture of “thrash” and “progressive”. The band can best be compared to groove metal and nu metal bands such as Mudvayne, Tool, Pantera, Coal Chamber, Soulfly, Nothingface, and American Head Charge.
