MASTERPLAN, the new band featuring ex-HELLOWEEN guitarist Roland Grapow, ex-HELLOWEEN drummer Uli Kusch and former YNGWIE MALMSTEEN singer Jorn Lande, have parted ways with bassist Jrgen Attig and have acquired IRON SAVIOR's Jan-S. Eckert as his replacement. Eckert has already recorded all the bass lines for the group's self-titled debut album, which is tentatively scheduled to be released in September through an as-yet-undetermined label.
Among the cuts set to be included on the 13-song album is "Heroes", featuring a duet between Lande and former HELLOWEEN frontman Michael Kiske, and a cover of LED ZEPPELIN's "Black Dog", which is also set to appear on an upcoming Locomotive Music ZEPPELIN tribute.
