Conquest was formed in 1996 in Kharkov, Ukraine as a solo studio project of the guitarist W.Angel, playing classic hard rock influenced by Def Leppard.
Up to the end of 1997 the staff was complete and on the 7th of January 1998 Conquest performed the first live show. In 1998 the band played lots of gigs in Ukraine, among them the show with Russian heavy metal legend Aria. After a few changes in the staff the band began playing more fast and aggressive music. The first demo, which was released by Russian label Irond Rec. with the title _Endless Power? included fast melodic tracks with some Slavonic folk melodies combined with power-speed riffs and impressing vocals. The band changed the style of music to euro power metal.
The second LP _Frozen Sky? released by Ukrainian indie label _Musical Hall Distribution? was kept in the same aggressive but melodic style. Playing songs from these two albums on different stages of Ukraine and neighboring countries, Conquest became one of the most popular and actual metal bands in Ukraine.
During the first half of 2008 the band recorded new songs and played lots of gigs, including the show with Epidemy in Odessa. In June Conquest performed at the biggest bike show in Ukraine The Goblin Show Fest being the headliner of one of the days.
