If you like well executed power metal with some great vocals, then Power Quest is a band for you. Recently the guys released their sixth album titled SIXTH DIMENSION. The band re-united back in 2016 and SIXTH DIMENSION is the first album since the reunion and also the first studio album since 2011. Me and the original band member/leader and keyboard player Steve Williams hooked up to have a chat about what has happened in the Power Quest camp during the past years. During the bands hiatus, Williams joined forces with Eden’s Curse, so of course I thought we should examine that matter a little closer. Besides that, I also asked him what he and the band thought of being on the road and visiting Sweden, Japan and the US for the first time. If you’re interested in reading some in-depth info about the band, its history, and what they’re up to in 2018 then continue reading…

Keyboardplayer and original member Jonah W – Pyramaze

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

The brand new Pyramaze album is a concept album titled CONTINGENT; it’s the band’s fifth album so far. The album was unleashed in Europe and North America at the end of April and is jammed with some intense progressive metal songs. This time around I had the pleasure of talking to keyboardist and original member Jonah Weingarten and he opened up about the process of making the album, the past and present members, as well as some more personal stuff. The band performed at Prog Power USA last year in a special show where current singer Terje Haroy teamed with previous singers Lance King and Matt Barlow; of course I had to ask what it was like to perform with the two previous singers again. In October this year the band is going to perform at Prog Power Europe in The Netherlands so we talked about the band’s expectations regarding the up-coming one time only show. If you’re interested in the band and its history, check out the previous interview I’ve done with infamous producer/guitar and bass player Jacob Hansen.

U.S. heavy metal act Millennial Reign is the brainchild of bassist Dave Harvey (Aska). The band released its first album CARRY THE FIRE (released by a record label) at the end of 2015. Harvey and I hooked up to talk about the band, the line up changes the band has gone through, as well as the debut album released independently. CARRY THE FIRE ought to appeal to fans of Judas Priest, Queensryche and Iron Maiden. Get a taste of what the band and their music is all about in the interview below.

From the northern parts of Sweden comes the power metal kings, Persuader. The band is back to attack after a long break. Their previous album WHEN EDEN BURNS came out in 2006 and they are now back with a vengeance with the brand new opus THE FICTION MAZE. I was blown away by THE FICTION MAZE and urge everyone who is a fan of well played, edgy power metal to check out the album. Persuader makes me glad to be Swedish! I had the luck to have a chat with guitarist Emil Norberg and drummer Efraim Juntunen where we talked about the brand new album, what the band has been up to in between releases, as well as what the guys think the future has in store for Persuader. Enjoy!

Sleeping Romance from Italy has a debut album out called ENLIGHTEN. It came late last year and since I loved what I heard I decided to get in touch with band members Federica Lanna – singer, bandleader and guitarist Federico Truzzi and guitarist Nicholas Bonavoglia. If you like symphonic metal with female vocals in the veins of Nightwish, Epica and Sirenia then check out Sleeping Romance. The trio and I talked about the bands past, present and future and I also asked Federica what’s it like to be the only woman in the band. Read the rest of this entry »
