The Progressive Rock band, Riverside

Riverside Poland

Anno Domini High Definition – the new album by the Polish rock band Riverside.

Riverside is a progressive rock band formed in 2001 in Warsaw, Poland. The band might be described as a blend of progressive rock and elements of heavy metal. In some way similar to the best music of Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Dream Theater, and Tool.

A super song by a Polish band that will (if there is any justice) one day be huge internationally!

Riverside band members: Mariusz Duda, Piotr Grudziński, Piotr Kozieradzki and Jacek Melnicki.
