POWER QUEST was formed in March 2001 by keyboardist Steve Williams after leaving London Power Metal heroes DRAGON HEART (now DRAGONFORCE) with fellow bandmate Steve Scott to take care of the bass duties.

2001 - THE DEMO CD

The first, self-titled two-track demo was recorded and uploaded onto early 2001. Recording was supported by ZP and Sam Totman (currently with DRAGONFORCE), along with Adam Bickers on Guitar.


In April 2002, vocalist Alessio Garavello was recruited to the POWER QUEST ranks. In July 2002 Italian guitarist Andrea Martongelli accompanied Alessio to England while he recorded his vocals for Wings of Forever and put down a couple of guest solos. The band was impressed with his ability and creativity and offered him the chance to join the line up shortly afterwards. Wings of Forever received an amazing feedback from the fans.


In January 2003, drummer Andre Bargmann joined the QUEST and at the same time Sam Totman was cutting back his involvement with the band due to his other commitments. NeverWorld, the follow-up to Wings of Forever, was recorded at Thin Ice in the summer of 2003, with production handled by Karl Groom. The mix was by Pete Coleman. The album was released in March 2004 though Now and Then/Frontiers Records.


With the Neverworld album released to critical acclaim in March 2004, the gigs with THRESHOLD in September '04 were a tremendous success, with the band gaining a whole group of new fans! November 2004 saw the band play a show with DREAM EVIL and LABYRINTH in London, and then later in the month the band headed back to Thin Ice studios to record three new songs for the third PQ opus, Magic Never Dies.


Francesco Tresca joined the band in February 2005 as the new drummer, shortly after completing drums for Magic Never Dies. The album was released to great critical acclaim, with awesome reviews coming in from all quarters.

2005/2006 - TOURING

In November 2005, the band headed out on the road in support of the new album and played six UK shows, culminating in appearances at the world-famous Marquee Club in London and Firefest II at Nottingham Rock City. POWER QUEST supported HELLOWEEN on the UK leg of their European tour in February 2006 and received a great reaction from the fans!


In February 2007, the band headed to Europe for a three-week tour supporting ANGRA and FIREWIND. The tour took in France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal and was a resounding success!

A new recording deal was negotiated with Austrian label Napalm Records, and the band hit the studio in October 2007 to record their fourth album, and their first for Napalm. This album, recorded at Remaster Studio in Vicenza, Western Drive Studio in London and Mercury Studio in Bristol, sees the band developing the POWER QUEST style and adding some new elements which bring the band kicking and screaming into 2008!Quelle: - Demo
