Decided to start a topic about this band, didn't find one on the forum.

I first heard Power Quest about two years ago, the song "Temple of Fire". Me and my friend thought it was cheesy as hell and laughed our asses off. We looked up more songs and continued to laugh. But then one very drunken night we realised we could sing along to these songs and kinda... liked it. So we listened to their whole discography and found some very very good songs. I mean "Power Quest Part I"? WTF? We were stunned.

After getting used to them I must admit that they're one of the best power metal bands out there. Can't wait for the new album and being a little anxious about the new singer.

We'll have to wait and see.

I utterly hate Power Quest and cheery "epic" power metal in general. I can't find any appeal in it, and I don't like the singer's voice.

I totally understand you. I thought the same at first, but love is blind... or deaf maybe.

Power Quest are seriously underrated in my opinion and I hope they manage to get more recognised in the next few years. A brilliant example of a band playing quality, fast, cheesy yet irresistibly catchy Power Metal and the first 3 albums in particular are brilliant.

There is and has been incredibly talented musicians playing for them as well. Steve Williams is a great keyboardist, I think Alessio's voice is great and the guitarists they've had and have currently are brilliant as well.

I'm very much looking forward to their new stuff and very intrigued by what Chity in particular can bring to the band (impressed with his work with Firewind).

I've been hooked on PowerQuest for a couple of years now. They've released some brilliant songs but also some very crappy ones. I wasn't to fond of their newest album.

I think I'm with you here. When they're good, they're really good. When they're bad, they're really bad.
And to me it seems every album they release is weaker than the last one. "Wings of Forever" being brilliant and their best IMO. After that the albums get weaker and weaker.

We need to draw a line here between Powermetal and Flowermetal. While I can enjoy Power/Speed Metal like old Helloween, early Blind Guardian and most of Gamma Ray's discography (all this stuff belongs to the Power/Speed Metal category), like you I utterly hate Flowermetal like Power Quest. And, even among Flowermetal, Power Quest is among the crappiest Flowermetal bands I heard. Unbearably cheesy, mediocre as fuck and the singer sucks donkey balls. Also, there's nothing epic about a band like Power Quest. It's just that some people mistake cheesiness as epicness.

have to agree on that...song about dragons, swords and castles is yet not necessarily "epic"
