CONQUEST was founded in 1996 in Kharkiv, Ukraine as a solo project of guitarist W.Angel and used to play DEF LEPPARD styled American hard rock. In 1997 it were: Ivan Goncharenko - vocals, W. Angel - guitars, Alexander Zakharov - guitars, Alexander “Bak” Homenko - bass, Andrew Alpherow - drums.
During 1998 many live concerts were played, among which some performances with famous Russian bands as ARIA and others. There was made a decision to renew the staff and a bit music style in the beginning of 1999 after Ivan and Andrew left. New musicians were invited – Eugene Lenkoff of MYSTERIOUS (vocals), Sergey Balalaev of BLIZZARD (drums) and Alexander Tatarin of GURGABS (bass). The 1999's summer is dedicated to rehearsals and preparing some speed-power material.
The first live performance of the new CONQUEST near the Kharkiv Opera Theatre 6.09.1999 on the Beer Day was terrific and unexpected even to the musicians themselves. In 1999-2000 band recorded the MOTHERLAND demo, which was later released as ENDLESS POWER by IROND RECORDS label. The success of the album was great - nobody believed that the band was of post-soviet origin. CONQUEST was playing on tours across CIS and Ukraine till the year 2003. Than the band's leader W.Angel ventured to give that all up and moved to Kyiv, the capital, in 2004 where engaged some new musicians to the matter.
After all, the new staff is: Alex G.L.-vocals, W.Angel – guitars, backing vocals, Lady Dea - keyboards, Louis Ray – bass, Alexander Can - drums.
All in all, CONQUEST finished recording of the next album called FROZEN SKY with new strength and fresh ideas after beginning the life shows again.
In 2005 new album was out at Musical-hall Distribution.
