Power Quest are delighted to welcome guitarist George “The Kid” Karafotis into the band, replacing Andy Kopczyk who left the band earlier this year. Hailing from Thessaloniki, Greece, George also plays in the bands Vermillion Days (Greece) and Wild Willy’s Gang (Norway) and was previously a member of Raven Lord and Exorcism.

Power Quest keyboardist and founder member Steve Williams had this to say on the matter. “It’s fantastic news to have George as part of the band. I’ve known him for a couple of years now and our drummer Rich has known him for 5 years since they played together in Raven Lord. George obviously brings a highly skilled level of guitar playing to the table but in addition to that he also brings a wealth of knowledge and experience. On top of that he’s just a bloody nice bloke haha! I look forward to hitting the road and the studio with George in the months and years to come. Welcome aboard matey”

George recently travelled to Southampton, UK to meet the band and undertake his first photo shoot as a PQ member ahead of rehearsals and live shows coming later in the year. Continue reading »

The programming of the 11th edition of the Brainstorm Festival is steadily taking shape. Power Quest (UK), Angel Nation (UK) and Despicable Heroes (NL) have been added to the line-up of the event that will take place on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 November 2018 in Gigant, Apeldoorn. The headliner of the festival will follow, as will many other bands.

With Power Quest, Brainstorm Festival brings DragonForce‘s ‘brother’ into its home. The English band was founded by Steve Williams, who was active in the early years at DragonForce. Power Quest also knows how to play infectious power-metal. Since their come-back in 2016 it’s the band for the wind, as witnessed by the strong album “Sixth Dimension”.

Angel Nation (pictured) has no less than Elina Siirala standing behind the microphone. Nowadays we also know this Finnish singer from Leaves’ Eyes, but Angel Nation is her first love. Like Power Quest, Angel Nation has released a new album through Innerwound Recordings, and the hit single ‘Burn The Witch’ is driving the gothic-metal band to ever-increasing heights.

Power Quest, the renowned melodic power metal band based in the UK released their new album “Sixth Dimension” in October last year through Inner Wound Recordings. The title track ‘The Sixth Dimension’ is now available for streaming below. The song was written by Steve Williams and Richard West [Threshold] and features guest vocals by Anette Olzon [The Dark Element, ex. Nightwish].

Steve Williams of Power Quest comments:

“It was brilliant to have the opportunity to write this song together with Richard West. We’ve known each other for many years and Richard was previously involved in a production capacity with the Master of Illusion album back in 2008. It’s turned out to be one of my favourite PQ songs and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to work with Richard in the future. It was also fantastic to be able to secure the services of one of my favourite vocalists, Anette Olzon, to be part of this song and it was a real pleasure to work with her.” Continue reading »
