Biography

POWER QUEST was conceived in March 2001 by keyboardist Steve Williams after he left London power metal act DragonHeart – now known as Dragonforce – with fellow band mate and bassist Steve Scott.

From their first release "Wings of Forever" in 2002 to release number four "Master of Illusion" in 2008 – which landed the band a worldwide deal with Austrian label Napalm Records – the international recognition for the powerful five-piece has gone from strength to strength.

German metal legends Helloween appointed POWER QUEST as the only support for the UK leg of their European tour in 2006. This success was shortly followed by an offer from Norwegian Prog Masters Pagan's Mind to co-headline a UK tour. 2007 saw POWER QUEST on tour in Europe as special guests of Angra and Firewind. The three-week tour took in France, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and Italy and was a resounding success for the band, building up a substantial new fan base. Numerous festivals followed and in 2009 they joined forces with Germany’s Red Lion Music for worldwide booking to expand their opportunities in the international metal scene.

Having unleashed their fifth album ‘Blood Alliance’ in 2010 they supported US prog legends Symphony X on their 2011 UK tour and, with the latest release still going strong, went on to embark on their first headliner tour of Benelux and Germany. The band underwent a few line-up changes from 2009 until 2011, but are set now with a final line-up and newly appointed front man Colin Callanan for a prosperous 2012.
