1983 the Metal started his triumphal march through Germany and the world. So three young guys, living in a small village near Hannover called Schweimke, decided to found a band; TEMPEST was born!
Far away from the so called scene, they created their own music-style. Hard playing guitars meet clean vocals and a powerful rhythm-section. No one can deny that the NWOBHM is a big influence. But there are also traces of progressive elements, to make the songs more interesting.

From 1987 – 1992 TEMPEST recorded a 12” EP and two demo tapes (with changing cast). In addition one must name two vinyl-samplers on D&S Records. All releases are collector items today.
Fanzines and magazines all over the world react with good reviews.
More than 200 gigs in the last century leads the band through whole Germany. They were on stage with: Heavens Gate, Protector Rough Silk and many more.

In October 2014, “Keep it True”- mastermind Oliver Weinsheimer invited TEMPEST to play at the “Manilla Road-Fest” in Dittigheim/Germany with Stallion, Bullet and others.

In February 2016, the band played their first show on foreign ground. TEMPEST completed the billing at the “Up the Hammers”-Fest in Athens/Greece, together with Lethal, Virgin Steele, Heir Apparent and many more.

In September 23/2016, Golden Core/ZYX (Manilla Road, Wishbone Ash, Jaguar etc.) released the double CD „Control The World – The Tempest Anthology“ (1987 to 1996) in a beautiful digipak with a thick 24-page booklet featuring photos, memorablia and many more.

In 2017 TEMPEST played two more festivals. At “Metalheadz”-Fest in Oberndorf am Lech together with Omen and Liege Lord and at “Metal Frenzy” in Gardelegen together with Amorphis, Rage and Destruction.

Now they are ready to conquer the world ;-)!!!
