A new double album released in October 2007. Heavy but also with some relaxed songs and some new influences. althrough i'm a soft progger i can recommend this album! The ghost of Porcupine Tree is not for away.
Melodic Hard-Rock with some great new adventurous tunes that will be a great accesable album for metal fans to the old fashionate Proggers.
The second disc is more floydisch and have some spheres from Steve Wilsons early work. And even an excerpt of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" on "Back to the River". The next tracks has again some snippets from Floyd; "Another Brick in the Wall".
The art work is again a beauty too.
If you like a mix of Porcupine Tree, Anthema, Dream Theater, Pink Floyd and "Brave" of Marillion;
Go out and catch them live!
Symfo with an harder edge, Pink Floyd spheres and here and there some grunge... enjoy.
Anno Domini High Definition ('09)
Between the concerts, preparing live DVD and realizing some solo projects, the band has already started to work on the material for the newest record. Its title will probably be “Anno Domini High Definition”. This record is planned to be the most energetic of all those released so far.

The band will start to record in January 2009 and the release is planned at the turn of May and June 2009.

Life dates 2009:
Live 26th October 2009
Auw Kerk Bunde.
A beautiful spot in the lovely South of the Netherlands was the opening place for their tour. Pineapple Thief opened with a great set, read more here.
Riverside started with their single "Panic Room". From the start till the end an floydian sound filled the old Church, okay it had an harder edge, but it was very enjoyable.
Mariusz and his team did a great job and the sound was very great, despite the fact that some people thought it was time to chat. And that in a church! The crowed participated and it was good to see that the band seemed to enjoy their selves too. Although Mariusz isn't the most talkable man in the Rock scene. Nice guitar solo's, powerful drums (without becoming too metal), great bass loops and nice keyboards moods.
A very good heavy show, great lights and a good set.
Weldone, this band will fill the bigger venues soon.

Reality Dream DVD:
Riverside launched an EP
For their 10th birthday Riverside have prepared a special release which will be available during the forthcoming tour. The EP entitled “Memories In My Head” contains 33 minutes of fresh music. The songs have the following titles:
1.Goodbye Sweet Innocence
2.Living In The Past
Mariusz Duda: This new material, concerning (for obvious reasons) the themes of the passing time, will be a pleasant surprise for those who have missed the specific kind of melodies and space known from the bands early releases. We have consciously gone back to our beginnings to create a certain kind of a circle. This mini-album will contain three longer compositions most resembling those from our first two albums. The result is a quite interesting, spacious, film-soundtrackish, nostalgic, and most of all rock mixture, summing up our career’s first decade quite well. “Memories In My Head” is an album which appears out of nowhere, without much promotion; we hope, though, that its content can defend itself and that it will evoke a lot of positive emotions. It does that to us, and we will prove it soon, playing those songs live at our upcoming gigs.
The concerts at which it will be possible to buy this minialbum and hear the new songs live will begin on 5th of May in Prague (CZ) and finish on 29th of May in Warsaw (PL). Tides From Nebula, a band from Poland, will support Riverside at the 12 European concerts, and the Pineapple Thief from Great Britain and Paatos from Sweden will do the same at the 6 Polish gigs.
Release date 21 January:
Shrine of New Generation Slaves.
Mariusz Duda: "I touched upon a vital subject on this record, namely... death. What came out of this was a conceptual journey to the world beyond full of reflections on transience and all we may want to leave after we pass (if we want to leave anything). In the sphere of music, it will be intriguing. I would call those sounds oriental-alternative, not really having anything in common with progressive rock. An interesting fact is that there is no electric guitar here at all."
NEWS September 2010::
Mariusz Duda released his white album end of October 2010. With Maciej Szelenbaum (keys, flute, quzheng), Lawrence Dramowicz from Indukti on drums.
