June 9, 2009 -The new site is up at last!

After a long time in oblivion the Palpatine Rising website is alive. During the downtime the band have been busy working hard recording the new album. The album is called "The northern wastelands" and is being manufactured this week.

The album was recorded at Tuft studio with the aid of Mr Jørn-Arild Grefsrud.
The mastering has been performed at High gain sudios, Hamburg by none other than Dirk Schlächter of Gamma ray! As all members of Palpatine Rising are huge Gamma ray fans we are of course very enthusiastic about this.
