Power Quest Gets New Guitarist, Bill Hudson

UK-based melodic power metal act Power Quest has announced that former Cellador and current Coldera guitarist Bill Hudson has been recruited into the Power Quest ranks.

PQ Mainman Steve Williams comments: "I'm absolutely ecstatic with this news! I've been good friends with Bill for a couple of years now and we have often talked about working together in some shape or form and now we have the perfect opportunity to do just that. As well as being a fantastic guitarist, Bill is also a great songwriter too which means this is going to benefit the band on a number of levels. Welcome aboard brother!"

Bill adds: "We've always talked about doing something together at some point, but the closest we've got to it was my guest solo (in the song The Vigil) on the new record. When I left Cellador, I had no idea I would end up being in Power Quest. So I'm really excited about it, as it's a great band, my style will fit right in and they have one of the best guitarists in current metal, Andrea Martongelli. It'll be a pleasure to be the other 50% of this killer guitar duo! I look forward to meeting the fans during the Master of Illusion tour!"

Power Quest is currently booking a UK tour for later this year to promote their latest release, "Master of Illusion," which has successfully been launched worldwide via Napalm Records / Avalon Marquee (Japan). The album has already been nominated in numerous magazines and webzines for album of the year and shot right to number 8 in the Japanese HMV charts in the 2nd week after the release.

You can check out some of the band's material on their MySpace page.

Ex-Dragonforce Bassist Joins Coldera

UK bassist Adrian Lambert (BIOMECHANICAL, SON OF SCIENCE, ex-DRAGONFORCE) has joined new U.S.-based melodic speed metal band COLDERA.

Commented Adrian: "I heard that Bill [Hudson, ex-CELLADOR] was putting a new melodic speed metal outfit together. We were chatting one day and he said that he couldn't find anyone Stateside who could really handle the bassist position. When I heard that Carlos [Zema, DAVE SHANKLE GROUP, ex-OUTWORLD] and Adam [Sagan, ex-INTO ETERNITY] were on board I figured a trip to the States was in order — and here we are!"

Lambert continued, "We've already started pre-production for the debut album which will be released later this year. People are gonna love the sick shredding and the great melodies we have in the COLDERA songs — this is definitely Bill's most amazing work yet. Prepare for the onslaught!"

Hudson stated: "It's great to have Adrian on board. His amazing and unquestionable bass skills combined with bombastic stage presence definitely makes him the best choice COLDERA could ever make. Frankly, I never thought we'd find someone like that for the band. We'll be uploading new pre production tracks to our MySpace page on a regular bassis, and we're really excited for you all to her it."

COLDERA has launched its official MySpace page, which includes a streaming-audio version of the track "Through the End".

COLDERA's lineup is rounded out by young up-and-coming Florida shredder John Slaughter (SKINDUSTRY).

Coldera Complete Lineup

COLDERA, the new melodic metal band featuring former CELLADOR guitarist Bill Hudson, former INTO ETERNITY drummer Adam Sagan, former OUTWORLD singer Carlos Zema and up-and-coming shredder John Slaughter, has issued the following update:

"After considering and talking to a lot of people from all around the world, we've been able to select the best bass player to complete our lineup. We're pretty sure most of you have heard of him, as his former band has become quite succesful in the last two years, especially in the USA, although he's based in the UK (hint?). This guy will blow everybody away with his technique, precision and amazing stage presence. We can't wait to take COLDERA on the road. That, along with the first pre-production track for our upcoming album will posted online during this upcoming week. Our MySpace page will also be officialy launched by then."

"If you want to check it out right now (it has no music yet), feel free to do so at www.myspace.com/officialcoldera."

COLDERA's debut album is expected to be released in the second half of 2008.
