We usually say the story of The Quill started “in the 1500s”. It has kind of evolved over the years and gotten more and more serious the older we got.

In the beginning members were changing a lot but in the late 80’s/early 90’s it became more serious with the arrival of vocalist Magnus Ekwall. I joined the band in 1993 and the debut album as The Quill was released on Megarock Records in 1995.
