EDITORS’ NOTES

Riverside’s moody Wasteland is rife with violent sounds and moments of vulnerability. On “Acid Rain”, the band pours out heavy riffs; a stirring, poignant quality defines “The Day After”, while a gentle spirit floats through “Guardian Angel”. Having lost guitarist and founder Piotr Grudziński in 2016, the Polish prog leaders let rip with a heavy heart on the evocative “Lament” and instrumental centrepiece “The Struggle for Survival”. This is an album about grief, acceptance and closure.

Stunning and unique

This band is like a lighter version of Amorphis, always a little different but recognizable nonetheless on each album. Atmospheric, heavy at times, dreamy at others.

Not your recent Riverside

This album is good but doesn’t have the drive of recent releases. I like the album but it’s more Lunatic Soul then Riverside. This is still my favorite artist but it’s not what I was hoping for. Lots of ballads it seems to me.
