Shrine Of New Generation Slaves, from 2013, is the fifth full-length studio album by the superb Polish Progressive band Riverside.

If you haven't heard Riverside yet, but are a fan of Prog, Neo-Prog or Prog Metal and especially if you are a fan of bands like Pink Floyd, Marillion, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Pain Of Salvation, Tool and Karnivool, then you really ought to at least check them out. They blend familiar sounds from many types and eras of progressive music into a distinctive and fresh sound all of their own, and manage to write great songs in the process.

To call Shrine Of The New Generation Slaves a departure from the band's established sound may be a little bit of an overstatement, but its certainly no repeat of anything they've done before either. Don't get me wrong, the band are still playing creative, interesting and thoughtful progressive music that is accessible but with a bit of depth, and that owes as much to the 1970s as it does to both the 80s and modern Prog and Prog Metal bands like they always do, but the mood of the record is very different.

Its a lot brighter, bouncier and almost happy sounding, which is not something you would usually associate with the band, save perhaps 2009's ADHD album. Its definitely closer in spirit to ADHD than it is to 2011's Memories In My Head EP, but then again its really not all that sonically similar to ADHD either when you get right down to it.

It feels like the band just want to mix it up a little and avoid becoming stale. The main riff from the lead single `Celebrity Touch' for example sounds more like something from a stoner rock band, or perhaps even Coverdale era Deep Purple.

(May 3rd update - look in the comments section below for my discussion of last night's how In Atlanta!)

Yes this is just a copy and paste of the discussion I tried to start when Amazon wouldn't let me post a review last week!! But it is my opinion of their new CD.

Riverside is my 2nd favorite current band after Porcupine Tree so it goes without saying that I have been greatly looking forward to this CD! I've read that some reviews are out on other sites but I have yet to read them. I also heard that many are criticizing the first single as being too "pop".

I haven't looked for it so don't know which track is the single but figure it's probably the 4th - We Got Used to Us. But it doesn't really sound "pop" to my ears, just mellower. And Riverside has done plenty of songs like it before, I Turned You Down for example. The 6th track - Deprived, is also like this, but it reminds me more of something off a Lunatic Soul album than Riverside. So I think this is just Duda's "Lunatic Soul" coming through in Riverside more than it ever has before. In any case, neither of these songs make me think of what I call pop. When I think of pop I think of the shallow garbage the mainstream American media is pushing, and this isn't it.

Bottom line is I really like the new CD, even upon first listen. The first track in particular starts off like a Lunatic Soul song before "cranking up" about 1/3 of the way into it. And, while the 2 bonus instrumental tracks are worth hearing, I can already tell the majority of my time will be spent playing the main CD.

First impression is that it's not as heavy as Rapid Eye Movement or Anno Domini High Definition, but, overall, is heavier than Memories in My Head.

Riverside are one of the most exciting dynamic prog artists to come out over recent years. On this latest release 'Shrine of New Generation Slaves' (abbreviated as SONGS! Don't you love it?) Mariusz Duda is as masterful as ever on crystal clear vocals, and pulsating bass. He is joined by the incredible guitars of Piotr Grudzinski, the keyboard finesse of Michal Lapaj, and the piledriver drums of Piotr Kozieradzki. When I first listened to this album I was not really worried about whether the band would sound like previous albums as I have found that their albums differ greatly from one another over the years, and they are still able to maintain interest simply due to the virtuoso musicianship and innovative compositions. So I ventured into this without any prior knowledge of what to expect, conceptually or otherwise, and had not looked at a single review, and forgot the clip available of 'Celebrity Touch'. This was a good move because the album absolutely transfixed me from beginning to end, without prior expectation. It is an incredible album, and one of the best so far in the early stages of 2013; one of the top ten masterpieces of 2013. I am delighted that this is the case as I have really grown to love this band over the years and they never disappoint which is a rare thing these days.

'New Generation Slave' (4:18) opens with distorted vocals and a powerful prog riff crashing through. It builds to a fast fractured rhythm reminding me of Soundgarden's 'Spoon Man', or indeed the riff on 'The Same River' from Riverside's 'Out of Myself' debut. The heaviness is densely layered with Lapaj's shimmering Hammond.
