Riverside - New Album Teaser Released

Do you want to hear something from the new Riverside album? Let's not keep you waiting any longer. The band just released a trailer of a little over two minutes from Shrine Of New Generation Slaves. It's not much, but it's a start. Enjoy the experience below.

Expect the "Celebrity Touch" single to be released with an edit-version as b-side on December 17th, 2012 in Europe. Shrine Of New Generation Slaves will come out on January 21st, 2013 in Europe and February 5th in North America via InsideOut. More album details, including tracklist and album artwork, were previously reported here.

The band also released the following comment: "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."

Yep, looks like another prog metal band is going all 70's prog -.- Well, this actually sounded more 80's.
Not bad.

Wow. That second sample sounds like they went back in time. I can't wait for the entire album to come out, but it does sound good at first glance.

The lyrical content on the album feels like it's related to their previous in some way. I also love the cover for the single.
It is humanity who must pay homage to the greatness of the Universe... not the Universe to the human narcissism.

I want that song. Then the album. Then the world.
