PostSubject: Masterplan (Power Metal)   Wed 29 Jul 2009 - 18:07



Biography :

Masterplan was formed in August 2001[1] by Roland Grapow and Uli Kusch, after the two were fired from the power metal band Helloween [2]. The first MCD Enlighten Me was released on November 18, 2002.

Their first full-length album Masterplan was released in 2003. The band then consisted of Grapow and Kusch with vocalist Jørn Lande. The main part of the keyboard lines on the album were arranged and programmed by Roland and Uli, while Children of Bodom keyboard player Janne "Warman" Wirman recorded some session for the album, but could not stay on as a full time member due to his commitments to Children of Bodom. Axel Mackenrott replaced him on tour and since then as a permanent member. Studio bassist Jürgen Attig (Casanova) helped with some bass lines on the recordings, but Grapow was the main bassist for the album. For tour and subsequent recordings, Jan-Sören Eckert (Iron Savior) was hired as a permanent member.

The band received the "European Border Breakers" award in 2004 from the European Commission.

In 2005 Masterplan released their second album, Aeronautics.

During the writing of the third album the band parted ways with singer Jørn Lande, citing "musical differences" as the reason for the split. The split was amicable enough that Jørn agreed to perform four previously arranged live appearances before departing although two of these were eventually canceled by the promoters.

On Oct 4th, 2006 Uli Kusch announced his departure from the band in an interview with Darkside.ru. Although not discussing the details of what had happened, he mentioned the democratic principles of making decisions in the band as one of the reasons of his leaving - according to him, it often made getting a consensus nearly impossible.

On October 7, Masterplan announced their new line-up through their official web site: Grapow, Mackenrott, Eckert, with new members Mike DiMeo (Riot, The Lizards) and Mike Terrana (ex-Artension, ex-Rage, Metalium). The band toured with Saxon as an opening act for Saxon's Inner Sanctum tour.

The band's third album, suitably titled MK II, was released on 26 February 2007. Andy Sneap, who produced the two previous albums, was utilized again when the album was recorded in September and October 2006.

On August 27 2007, the band has announced that they were going to write their 4th album. The band is currently busy writing the album, and they hope to be working with Roy Z, who was involved in the making of their first two albums, during the recordings. The new album was scheduled for an early 2009 release.

On January 11 2009 Mike DiMeo confirmed on his MySpace page that he had parted ways with Masterplan.

On April 21 2009 the dutch rock & metal magazine Aardschok confirmed the rumours about Jorn Lande's return to his former band Masterplan.

Je me suis procuré l'album MKII qui reste sympathique, mais qui ne vaut pas le Masterplan époque Lande...

MASTERPLAN sans JORN, ça n'est plus le même groupe.

Maintenant, j'attends avec un petit brin de suspicion ce retour....

J'espère que ça n'est pas seulement une question d'argent et que le groupe (Qui a dit Jorn ????) nous sortira un excellent album.

Je possède tous les albums, mais je serais bien incapable d'en conseiller un plus que l'autre... Bien que, "Aeronautics", en effet.... Smile

Le groupe Masterplan, avec de nouveau Jorn Lande
dans ses rangs (pour ceux qui n'auraient pas suivis ou auraient été
victimes de rapt par des extra-terrestres ces derniers mois...),
prévoit de sortir son nouvel album, dénommé "Time To Be King", pour le 16 Avril prochain !

Je l'ai acheté et je dois dire que je suis mitigé. Il y a des idées, de très bonnes idées, mais moins de titres phares... C'est agréable à l'écoute, mais ca ne déclenche pas des frissons partout comme je l'attendais. En revanche, quel plaisir de réentendre sieur Lande au chant Very Happy D'ailleurs je crois que je vais finir pas me laisser tenter par les Allen / Lande ^^

'Tain, je me suis redécouvert le premier album et la claque de ma vie!!! Masterplan est sans doute devenu ma référence Power Métal entre ses albums "Masterplan" et "Aeronautics" Smile Trois semaines que tout ça tourne dans ma voiture, au boulot, et dans mon appart ^^
