MASTERPLAN, the new band featuring ex-HELLOWEEN guitarist Roland Grapow, ex-HELLOWEEN drummer Uli Kusch and former YNGWIE MALMSTEEN/ARK singer Jorn Lande, were honored with a European Border Breakers Award at this year's MIDEM convention in Cannes, France.The European Border Breakers Awards are a European Commission initiative which reward ten artists or groups (and their record companies, authors and publishers) for achieving the highest sales for a debut album across the European Union, outside their country of production in 2003. The ten artists were revealed at the European Border Breakers Awards ceremony, which took place last Sunday (January 25). MASTERPLAN's self-titled debut album was produced by Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, ARCH ENEMY, NEVERMORE) and was issued in January 2003 through AFM Records.
