Live at Paradiso (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) on the 10th of december 2008
n 2001, Marisuz Duda, Piotr Grudzinski and Piotr Kozieradzki decide to start a band. These three friends, who share a heavy metal and prog rock passion, founded the band Riverside in Warzaw, Poland. Influenced by Porcupine Tree and Tool, the band was soon seen as the main promise for the future of progressive rock.
Riverside's 2003 debut, 'Out of Myself', saw the band being signed to the prog metal label InsideOut. On InsideOut, they released the follow-up album 'Second Life Syndrome'. This second record was met with great enthusiasm in the prog rock scene. One of those enthusiasts was Mike Portnoy from the band Dream Theater. He invited Riverside to support Dream Theater's European tour in 2007.
That same year Riverside also released their third and most succesful album, 'Rapid Eye Movement'. In december 2008, Riverside went on their 'Reality Dream Tour' with art rock band Lazuli, which took them to all major venues in Europe.TAKEN FROM http://www.fabchannel.com/riverside_concert/2008-12-10
