RIKSHA / Press

“Riksha is a band that delivers, and their music is not the only thing that they have to offer. When they make an album…they “make an album”, and that’s cool! You guys are great, Riksha”

"anxiety-laden guitars and riffs equaling heartbeats as a serial killer thinks out loud".

“Really excited to see Riksha added to the Dark Harvest Records family! Reminds me of my thrash punk roots! Anyone got a skateboard and a half pipe I can borrow?”

Jason Burton - Dark Harvest Records

"Their music packs a powerful, aggressive and melodic punch that, in a live setting, pummels your senses extra good."


“A metal, melodic, mind FUCK!”

Marty Reese - Rocky Mountain Hard Core

"The music is loud, mean and beautiful. The growling vocals range from creative to devastating".

"Don't let all the glamour fool you, [Riksha] is a band made up of four down to earth guys playing their own unique style of music".

Heather Padgen - Audio Spank Magazine

"I was treated to some of the best live music I have ever been privileged to hear...I have been in some crazy mosh pits in my time, but I never had seen anything quite like this".

Jeff Durham - Zex Magazine

"The standard by which all are judged is getting higher...RIKSHA jumps on no bandwagons"

Capt. America - Salt Lake Under Ground

"This isn't slow headbanging metal...Riksha plays punk rock metal and sing lyrics with deep meaning...they cope with sarcasm and attitude".

William Athey - The Event Newsweekly

"The singer downs his beer with gusto and spits on the stage. The bassist (a man) wears a t-shirt that reads "Nobody knows I'm a lesbian"...jaws drop".

Bill Frost - City Weekly

"Kevin's bass rig could shake apart a building and just might cause your CD player to fall off the shelf".

B.Lense - SLUG Magazine

"...killer vocals/lyrics, soul pounding drumbeats, guitar riffs that screamed metal and bass that brought forth the true moshers in the crowd".
