In 2002, MASTERPLAN was founded by Roland Grapow and Uli Kusch, who both just split ways with Helloween. This new band should turn into a force to be reconned with very quickly: the debut album “Masterplan” made a huge impact on the scene in early 2003. Four highly-acclaimed studio albums were following within the next 10 years.
When MASTERPLAN was formed in 2002, the band was quickly hailed as THE Melodic Metal sensation.
Two ex-Helloween men Roland Grapow and Uli Kusch connected at once with first-class vocalist Jorn Lande, then adding to this mix Axel Mackenrott (keyboards) and bassist Jan S. Eckert. A supergroup was born.
The debut album “Masterplan” achieved huge impact in 2003, the band celebrating their first chart success throughout whole Europe and the immensely quick buildup of a huge, worldwide fanbase. A European tour with Hammerfall followed in addition. The sophomore album “Aeronautics” was released in January 2005 and continued this path. Part of the “Flying Aces Tour”, MASTERPLAN played their first shows as headlining act. But, for third album (“MK II” (2007), change was on the way as singer Lande and drummer Kusch left the FM records
MASTERPLAN LINE UP:
Roland Grapow guitars
Axel Mackenrott keyboards
Rick Altzi vocals
Jari Kainulainen bass
