PALANIUM: October release, ‘The Way Of Kings’

Publicado: 06/10/2020 por Pedro Mello em News

Launched January 25th, 2019, the now formerly “Palanaeum” is the result of WNC bassist Christian Justus (founding member of 28 PAGES), guitarist Jake Valentine, drummer David Sylvester, and keyboardist Holly LeBlanc coming together to create original, semi-progressive, mystical rock with an edge.

Some of their influences are Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Cream, Wolfmother, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, Guns ‘N Roses, Rage Against The Machine, Drivin’ and Cryin’, Tom Petty, Queensryche, and Dream Theater just to name a few.

The band got their name from a place called the “Palanaeum”- pronounced: “PAL-A-NEE-UHM”,  a vast, detailed library of texts named in the The Stormlight Archive, a series of fantasy novels by author Brandon Sanderson. In the novels the Palanaeum is the largest known library on Roshar, located in Kharbranth and holding over seven hundred thousand texts on various subjects.

They felt that the name encompassed the overall idea of the project as being a home for pieces of music that together form a collection. However, the name was also strange and complicated. later, a band discussion took place about the name, followed by a vote. Then on February 28th, 2019 the band decided to simplify their name by changing the spelling to “PALENIUM”, which in turn also changed the pronunciation.

The name is now like the word “millenium” except with only one “L” in the middle. The now better named PALENIUM are currently in the process of writing and recording a three song trilogy called The Way of Kings Saga which will include the songs The Way of Kings, Blood & Honor and Crown of Redemption. They also have several “stand alone” songs in the works as well as a five-six song concept tentatively titled “Second Sun Eclipse: The Story of Xander & Rose”, along with a few select cover songs that will eventually make for a great live show experience.
