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 »

For Old timers, Power Quest has been a familiar name since March 2001, when Steve Williams parted ways with DragonForce, and approached Steve Scott (Ex- Shadowkeep) to join him for bass. Eventually Sam Totman and Adam Bickers joined them on guitars (temporarily) while vocalist and rhythm guitarist Alessio Garavello, who was recommended to the band by Maurizio Chiarello (the label manager at Underground Symphony Records) brought along, Andrea Martongell and replaced Adam Bickers relieving him off his guitar duties. The band didn’t have a stable drummer until Francesco Tresca decided to join Power quest fulltime. Fast forward to 2013, and we hear Steve announcing the split quoting lack of financial and record label support.

After a three-year hiatus, Steve Williams through his Youtube channel and bands’ website announced the regroup of the Power Metal band Power Quest. On 29th June this year the band confirmed the release of their sixth Studio album, “Sixth Dimension”. With this we saw Andy Kopczyk (of I AM I fame) along with Glyndwr Williams (of Triaxis) joining the ranks as permanent members of the band, alongside Ashley Edison on Lead vocals, Paul Finnie thumping on bass and Rich Smith lashing the drums. The album is due to release on the 13th October on Inner Wound recordings. It was recorded and mixed at Rogue Studios, London by Alessio Garavello  and Steve Williams, mastered by Jens Bogren (of Dragonforce, Symphony X, Arch Enemy fame) and artwork for the cover by Felipe Machado Franco ( of Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of Fire, Iced Earth fame).
