Biography

Riverside is the name of at least five different bands:

1. A band from Warsaw, Poland, founded in 2001 by Mariusz Duda (bass guitar, vocal), Piotr Grudziński (electric guitar) and Piotr Kozieradzki (drums), who shared a love for and . Up to 2003 Jacek Mielnicki was playing keyboard in the band, but some conflicts led him to leave the band, and in the same year the new keyboardist Michał Łapaj joined. Following their 2003 debut Out Of Myself, the band were signed by major prog label InsideOut, releasing Second Life Syndrome in 2005. Riverside’s music has been described as a mix between, Pink Floyd, Anathema, Opeth, and Dream Theater, containing long, ethereal keyboard-laden passages and heavy, crunchy metal riffs. Rapid Eye Movement was leaked on the internet in August 2007, and was released in the end of September in Europe, October 09 in the US. In the summer of 2007 Riverside supported Dream Theater in the European leg of their tour.

In 2009 they released their album Anno Domini High Definition. Mariusz Duda had the following to say about the album on January 27, 2009: “We have gone from Warsaw, we have changed the studio and the producer. We care deeply about creating a coherent record and that is why most probably there are only going to be five songs on it. The material will be energetic, multifarious, and - I hope so - very good for live performances. It will be a story about liquid modernity, life in a constant hurry, stress and anxiety about the future. A picture of our times in 1920 x 1080 definition.”

    Why does this band not get more credit? I currently going through some serious relationship issues with my wife. I've never really sad down and picked apart some of their songs, but recently did. Feel Like Falling, Used to Us, Loose Heart and many others hit me square over the head with a very heavy hammer...as if I were living the songs that were written. This band is unbelievably good.

    Najgorszy (ex aequo z polonezem) produkt polskiej myśli jakiejkolwiek. Autentycznie najpotworniejszy zespół świata. Bardziej koszmarny nawet od Anathemy.

    Been waiting to see Riverside for years! Now seen them twice in just over a year. Well worth the wait! Amazing in both Glasgow and Edinburgh! I can't wait to see them back in Scotland!!!

    Parasomnia from Rapid Eye Movement is pure perfection. It kicks me off this planet like I've never been here at all.

    Second Life Syndrome is best to begin with, ADHD if you want something heavier

    I'd say Second Life Syndrome or Rapid Eye Movement, they are the most balanced in terms of the mellow/heavy aspects. Out of Myself and SoNGS are mostly softer, ADHD is the most energetic by far.
