“Stabbing, interlocking guitar work, somewhere between the Pixies, Linoleum, and Sonic Youth, is given weight by the probing might of the bass and the thunderous drums which roil and burn underneath the scratchy surface of the track. […] It’s the sort of potent, atypical art-punk that would have had me scouring the physical record shops for days if I’d come across it on the radio. It defies convention and draws upon myriad influences to offer something that is original, exciting and evocative.” – SonicAbuse

“For some bands, it’s the journey, not the destination that counts, and that’s certainly been the case for Risk Relay. […] As We Descend follows Risk Relay‘s modus operandi of mixing post-punk guitars with declamatory, half spoke/half sung vocals, with ample space in each song for striking instrumental passages.” – NJ.com

“[…] a mixture of Unsane-style brutality and Drive Like Jehu inspired post-hardcore rhythms. […] alternately pummeling and precise, menacing and meticulous. It’s heavy, yet melodic, and maintains at least one tentacle in any number of heavy, noisy, intense styles.” – Treble

“It’s heavy, but also draws from Amphetamine Reptile-style noise rock and the New Brunswick basement show indie scene that the band emerged from. It’s a unique, yet familiar sound.” – Metal Insider
