    Posted: November 03 2009 at 10:20
Metal Mind Productions proudly presents the first DVD of one of the most important progressive rock bands - Riverside!
 
Riverside, the band hailing from Warsaw, Poland, can best be described as a stylistic blend of atmospheric rock and metal elements, resulting in a sound similar to that of Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Dream Theater, and Tool, while still maintaining an identity of their own. Since the release of their debut album, Riverside have built a solid fan base in progressive rock genre.
 
In May 2008, the band went on a mini-tour across Poland. The most significant date of the tour was May, 17th when Riverside played a special, over-two-hour gig in Toya Studios in Łódź. The show was treated as a summary of the “Reality Dream Trilogy” (Out Of Myself – 2003, Second Life Syndrome – 2005 & Rapid Eye Movement - 2007). Apart from the great performance of the most important songs from the band’s three big releases, the band also prepared the best lighting in their live history with a few screens that showed some special visuals. The concert in Łódź was recorded and, so far, it was available in a limited audio only edition during their “Reality Dream Tour” in December 2008.

Today, the fans of Riverside have a chance to see that special performance in its full glory as it is released as a double DVD. Apart from the complete performance in Łódź, “Reality Dream” DVD also includes a selection of live performances in various places around the world, including Canada, Germany and Holland, plus a documentary “Behind the Curtain – A film by John Vis” and a photo gallery. The graphic design was, once again, handled by Travis Smith (painter for such bands as Opeth, Anathema, and Devin Townsend).
 
"Reality Dream" 2 DVD will be available on 7th December 2009 in Europe (except for France - 11th January 2010) and 23rd February 2010 in USA (via MVD).

Riverside was founded by guitarist Piotr Grudziński, drummer Piotr Kozieradzki and vocalist/bassist Mariusz Duda in 2001. Soon after the recording of their debut album, “Out Of Myself”, keyboardist Michał Łapaj joined the band, completing the line-up which has impressed fans and media alike with their great technical skills. The band’s most recent fourth full-length album “Anno Domini High Definition” was released in mid 2009. The album sees Riverside take another step in the evolution of their extremely significant sound, showing a total focus on the here and now. “We don’t want to be one of those living-in-the-past prog bands,” Mariusz Duda (vocal/bass) points out. “We feel that we have something new to say, and lots of moments on this album feature a fresh approach to some things. First of all, our main influence – our lives, or to be more precise, the speed of our lives. That’s why we had to cut an extremely dynamic and pretty short record, which suits the times we live in.” Experts have called Riverside a stylistic mix of Tool, Porcupine Tree and Dream Theater, but Mariusz Duda reckons that other influences are more dominant on "Anno Domini High Definition": “We wanted to reflect the energy of the early 70's and combine it with modern sounds. Now I think there is more of a Rush, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple sound. But at the end of the day, this record ultimately sounds like Riverside.”

Line-up: Piotr Grudziński (Guitar), Mariusz Duda (Vocals, Bass), Piotr Kozieradzki (Drums), Michał Łapaj (Keyboards).

Progressive rock band Riverside will release "Reality Dream", their first ever DVD, on 11th January 2010 (in US on 23rd February) and not in early December as it was previously announced. The release date was postponed due to technical problems that occurred at the pressing company.
 
The preview of the “Reality Dream” DVD – track “Before” – is available on Metal Mind Productions’ official channel on Youtube:
