UK-based melodic power metal act POWER QUEST has announced the addition of former CELLADOR and current COLDERA guitarist Bill Hudson to the group's ranks.Commented keyboardist Steve Williams: "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 its latest release, "Master of Illusion", which has successfully been launched worldwide via Napalm Records/Avalon Marquee (Japan).
