Background

Riverside were founded in 2001 by friends Mariusz Duda, Piotr Grudzinski, Piotr Kozieradzki and Jacek Melnicki, who shared a love for progressive rock and heavy metal.

Riverside are 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.
