Risk is from Brooklyn but play music totally uncharacteristic from everything else coming out of that area. The music is screamy, chaotic, introspective and well executed. Think of Closure mixed with a little bit of The Exelar and you start to get a little bit of an idea.
I'm really enjoying how Risk mixes late 90's style with some more modern song structure. The dual contrasting screamers keep things interesting on the vocal front. Each instrument seems to have a good handle on it's duties, but together a really nice and well rounded musical presentation.
Listen to it here.

The production is purposely dirty and raw, but still provides enough clarity so that you're not totally lost. When things get chaotic you might find yourself experiencing a "wall of noise" moment.
The vocals have a mid range shout that has me thinking of bands like Capsule or Veloz at times. There's some interesting song writing here and the drum work pulls everything together, adding that extra emphasis where it needs to be. All in all, a great batch of songs.
Have a listen here.
