seriously sad news, may he rest in peace.
I saw this on the Facebook page and it took my by surprise...huge RIP man.
Damn, this is horrible. So talented and so young :/
I hate 2016.
This is really a terrible year for music. Another great musician died. This is really a terrible thing. I had the opportunity of see the band in a live show in my country a few years ago and I sincerely love their performance. He had surely much many things to offer us in the next years. Anyway, the things are what they are.
RIP, man. We will miss you, for sure.
Very unexpected and sad news, RIP

Jesus... It's one thing for aged baby-boomers with drug-addled pasts but this...
I just saw Leprous post about it and couldn't believe it. Really shocked and sad. Riverside is one of my favourite bands, and he was a huge part of it. RIP, Piotr

No age to go, 40
What's going on? Seriously. This... this is beyond normal. He was one of the most incredible guitarists and knew how to use simplicity. I'm in utter shock right now. I just can't believe it. Fuck, this is shit news. What the fuck.
Used to think the band were boro lads from the name, eventually gave them a listen and really enjoyed it. RIP.
First saw this from Anathema. 2016 has been a shit year in terms of major deaths. Far too many.
2016, stop with this. R.I.P.

he's heading towards the blue horizon now.
Still can't believe, he was an incredibly good musician.
@Mythodea that exact song came to mind as well, especially the lyric about playing the guitar. :/

Unbelievable. Loss for words. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
Yet another great musician is gone. And he was much too young. Sad news, RIP.
WHAT THE FUCK?!

Fucking what? Just discovered this amazing band.
This year is wicked.
Digging: Sepultura - Machine Messiah
Damn. I have only heard an album from these guys so far, but the guitar work was the most impressive parts of it. Sucks to see someone go at such a young age, too.
40 years old...too young, just too young.
This year is merciless, RIP.
God damn this sucks. Yet another great one lost in 2016, and one so young at that.
what a sad year so far
heartbreaking news. loved his songwriting and guitar work, pretty much made the band for me, and 40 is way too young to go. RIP.
Great musician, he will be missed. You could tell it was Riverside just by his playstyle, something you can say of only unique great guitarists. RIP hard
2016 is going to be fucking brutal
this is heartbreaking R.I.P.
RIP, this guy had such an amazing style
Devastated by this horrible news. RIP man
2016 has been a a horrible year for music so far. Not because of the quality of music being put out, but just so many stars have passed away just in the last several weeks.
Wow, this came out of nowhere. He did great in the band, really sad to hear... rest in peace man.
This is honestly the most shocking news in music ever for me. I absolutely love this band and this sucks. They are one of my top five favorite bands. I'm speechless right now.
It's extremely shocking. He was at a winery dog's concert the night of his passing, with him seeming perfectly fine. Tragic loss.
Man. RIP, was just listening to Riverside a couple of days ago.
Digging: Young Legionnaire - Zero Worship
So, Lemmy dies, Bowie dies, Piotr dies, Weiland dies, Frey dies and Neil Peart retires and this is a good year how?
Man, Riverside is one of my favorite bands and this news are totally suprising.. this fucking sucks
Man i've been on a Riverside binge lately so this is really sad to hear. RIP
Digging: Run the Jewels - Run the Jewels 3
Man this is the worst, one of my favorite bands. Nothing to say really, huge loss.
Loved his soulful playing. RIP
Digging: The Dillinger Escape Plan - Dissociation
Still can't believe this.
heartfelt post from Mariusz
I saw that Omairh. Very touching. Gave a great glimpse at who he was as a person
Damn, I was just listening to them yesterday for the first time in a while, and had no idea. This sucks.
apparently, it was a heart attack. the band posted sth on their facebook page.
do you think it's linked to drugs or alcohol? maybe he had some kind of heart disease
don't think too many drugs have a latent heart attack during sleep in their side effects ://
drugs can weaken a heart over time, but i dont think piotr was someone who abused drugs, or even took it for that matter
yea, such an unfortunate event ://
@Mythodea Saw that post; the last bit said something about a "release" for late spring, early fall this year. They working on a new album??
don't know. It's all so sudden and out of the blue. Maybe it's an EP. It's even more confusing now that Piotr is gone, their future, their lives. The more time passes, the more I realize he's gone.
Shit this is awful, they're such a good band and he was such a talented guy.

Interesting how 2016 is a year of great rock/metal releases, yet everyone's fucking dying.
New album is a great shift in style, yet it's oddly Riverside.

Was thinking the exact same thing!
