Mariusz Duda, Riverside's singer and bass player, together with fellow musicians, has just finished working on his solo album, "Lunatic Soul." The release date has been set for October 13th, 2008. The album will be released on the British label - Kscope, known for having released the earlier albums of Porcupine Tree, and presently producing Anathema and No-Man. In Poland on Mystic Production. On the Lunatic Soul album you will find 10 atmospheric tracks making up 47 minutes of music.
Mariusz Duda: "I touched upon a vital subject on this record, namely... death. What came out of this was a conceptual journey to the world beyond full of reflections on transience and all we may want to leave after we pass (if we want to leave anything). In the sphere of music, it will be intriguing. I would call those sounds oriental-alternative, not really having anything in common with progressive rock. An interesting fact is that there is no electric guitar here at all."
