The band was started as a side project of the members various other bands. A melodic death metal band all the members were in disbanded, and the group decided to further develop Powerglove. The band’s first recording was “Dr. Wily’s Theme” from Mega Man 2 in early 2003, which was followed by “Storm Eagle” from Mega Man X and the theme from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
The band records their music in various locations and mixes them in a home studio. The band recorded and released its debut EP, Total Pwnage, in 2005 (later re-released in 2008). Over the following two years, the band arranged and recorded what would become their debut, full-length album, Metal Kombat for the Mortal Man. The album met positive reviews. Throughout 2008, following the release of Metal Kombat for the Mortal Man, the band had found its way into many publications, such as Game Informer, Metal Hammer, and Gamepro, including interviews with the band members and album reviews.
In May 2008, the band embarked on their first U.S. tour with bands Psychostick and Look What I Did. It was during this tour that power metal guitarist Herman Li invited the band to open for his group, DragonForce, at the Roseland Theater in Portland, Oregon. After this performance, the band was invited to be a part of DragonForce’s Ultra Beatdown U.S. and Canadian tour, which took place November–December 2008 along with the Finnish metal band Turisas.
Since then, the band has begun writing their third album, stated by the band on their MySpace page. It has been stated that they will most likely record their new album as they recorded Metal Kombat. At this point, the band had demos for three possible songs. In July 2009, guitarist Chris Marchiel stated in a blog on the band’s official MySpace that the band is about to record two albums. The first was centered around TV, cartoon, and movie themes the band grew up with. Some songs mentioned were the Pokémon theme song, Danny Elfman’s “This Is Halloween” from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Flintstones, and more. Marchiel stated that the second album, which he had hoped would be released sometime by the end of 2011, will return to the band’s brand of video game metal. The only song possibility mentioned for this album was “Snake Man” from Mega Man 3. The band announced in late July 2009 that they had begun recording. Powerglove signed to notable record company E1 Music in May 2010. The TV album, titled Saturday Morning Apocalypse, was released September 28, 2010, through E1 Music.
In 2010, Powerglove toured the U.S. and Canada with Swedish power metal act HammerFall and followed that tour immediately with another U.S./Canadian tour with Sonata Arctica and Mutiny Within. Powerglove was a part of the 2011 Summer Slaughter Tour in North America alongside co-headliners Whitechapel and The Black Dahlia Murder.
Powerglove released a Japan-only album entitled TV Game Metal, featuring remixed and re-recorded versions of their older songs through Marquee/Avalon Records on July 25, 2012. They will also be limiting touring starting in August to focus on recording their next full-length album, which will return to their video game cover roots.
In 2017 Powerglove began releasing single tracks off their new album “Continue?”
