The Lasers Edge

In Memory of Piotr Grudzinksi

Over 11 years ago word filtered to me about a demo circulating about a great new band from Poland called Riverside.  I listened to sound samples on their website and reached out to the band to find out their status.
 
Piotr Grudzinski responded to me and since then he was my eyes into the world of Riverside.
 
Piotr had informed me that they were about to sign a contract for the release of Out Of Myself. I asked them to wait until I heard the album.

Liquid Landscape from The Netherlands has been a live act for several years and shared the stage with bands like Karnivool (AUS), Anathema (UK),Thrice (US) and Riverside (Poland). 

Washed up, tired and staggering across a beach in the early hours of the morning. Somewhere in the twilight between desperation and surrender, there is still a glimmer of hope. That sense that everything will be alright, no matter what the odds are. This is what A Liquid Landscape sounds like.

08/25/2011 - WHITE WILLOW TO RELEASE "TERMINAL TWILIGHT" OCTOBER 11, 2011

Norwegian prog rockers WHITE WILLOW have returned with "Terminal Twilight", the band's sixth album. It is both a departure and a continuation in terms of WHITE WILLOW's discography. The renewed emphasis on acoustic guitars and pastoral sections, the somewhat gothic, mysterious atmosphere, are all hallmarks of a sort of a "classic" WHITE WILLOW sound. On the other hand, there is an added element of experimentation and playfulness, and a more daring approach to harmonics that takes the band several leaps forward.
