History

This Seattle, USA-based power metal band is essentially Q5, but with a different and revolving rhythm section. Either way, all members seem to eventually join Q5. The band was founded in 1987. The group was heard on Rock Hard magazine’s Metal Beat Messiahs compilation alongside Hades, Zodiac Mindwarp and others. The band signed with Music For Nations out of England, which issued the debut with a “formerly of Q5” printed on the cover. The material was mostly intended as a new Q5 album, but the music was dismissed by the Polygram label A&R (who happened to be Metallica managers). Evan joined in 2003, but had initially been invited to join back when the group had formed. Rongo played with Q5 live at Sweden Rock Festival. Nightshade played at 2009 set at Headbanger's Open Air in Germany and then took the stage again as Q5.
