Riverside Reveals Artwork And Trailer For New Album "Shrine Of New Generation Slaves"

Poland's progressive rockers Riverside have released the first look into their upcoming release, "Shrine of New Generation Slaves." Set for a North American release date of February 5th, 2013, this will be Riverside's fifth studio album. The album artwork and track list for "Shrine of New Generation Slaves" can be seen below, along with an official album trailer.

Riverside comments, "The lyrics on the new album deal with different situations we face in our modern times and how we sometimes become enslaved by them and by the style of life they dictate. For instance, we are dominated and bombarded by increasingly stupefying media. The media, in turn, is dominated by more and more people who are known for their well-knownness... Celebrities, the modern representatives of a need which lies deep within us all and is rarely satisfied - the feeling of importance. This feeling, and some of the dilemmas and complications connected with it, is the subject of our newest single - 'Celebrity Touch.' Musically, we still try to extend the bridge to connect the new music to the old. In this track we achieved some kind of original mixture and I hope you will enjoy this piece of new album."

The track listing is:

01. New Generation Slave (4:17)
02. The Depth of Self-Delusion (7:39)
03. Celebrity Touch (6:48)
04. We Got Used To Us (4:12)
05. Feel Like Falling (5:17)
06. Deprived [Irretrievably Lost Imagination] (8:26)
07. Escalator Shrine (12:41)
08. Coda (1:39)

"Shrine of New Generation Slaves" was recorded at Serakos Studio in Warsaw, Poland, where Reality Dream Trilogy was also tracked. Recorded with Magda Srzednicka and Robert Srzednicki, the album offers nearly an hour of classic Riverside music.

There's promise in this preview... I loved their first two full lengths and both "Memories/Voices In My Head" EPs but "Rapid Eye Movement" and "Anno Domini High Definition" were unstructured, emotionally vacant, hookless, blobs. There were a couple nice melodies but nothing that warranted repeat listens.

I appreciate that they want to challenge themselves and their fans but I think their early work and the most recent EP (the heavy stuff, catchy stuff and long forms) were far more engaging.
