BEYOND TWILIGHT Mainman Says MASTERPLAN Singer Is Behaving Like A Child

BEYOND TWILIGHT founder Finn Zierler has once again slammed the group's former vocalist, Jorn Lande (currently in MASTERPLAN), for claiming in an interview that "several of [Lande's] vocal melodies and lyrical ideas" were used without Jorn's permission on the group's latest album, "Section X" (which features Lande's replacement, Kelly Carpenter, also of OUTWORLD).

In a recent interview with Rockdetector.com, Lande stated, "Finn Zierler has, without my permission, used some of my work on the new BEYOND TWILIGHT album, 'Section X'. These ideas were made during the 'Devil's Hall of Fame' sessions, and was considered unfinished 'leftovers' after the songwriting was over. I am, of course, not claiming to have written any of the musical compositions on 'Section X', but I was surely surprised and stunned when I discovered that several of my vocal melodies and lyrical ideas appeared on the album. . . Most people in this business know that I am a creative and productive artist without needing to take credit for other people's work to get publicity. I also don't think that these musical 'leftovers' are worth the trouble, I have moved on many times since then. However, this doesn't change the fact that Finn Zierler went behind my back and used them without my permission. That is disrespect. I am not demanding or expecting anything from Finn Zierler, except for honesty."

Responding to Lande's claims, Zierler has posted the following message on BEYOND TWILIGHT's official message board:

"I have written four mails to Jorn. But no reply. Knowing Jorn, I guess this is what to expect from him. But I guess it is more obvious to anyone now than ever what kind of person he really is. Not surprisingly he seems only to be interested in getting [coverage] in the media. The more he talks the more he is humiliating himself. Even after he has been proved lying he still behaves like a six-year-old child in the media with an ego as big as Mount Everest. Making up new stories — more lies which is getting more and more bizarre and self-contradictory instead of just standing up saying he made a mistake is not making it any better for him. It is too late for him to save his dignity although he got the chance. What a waste of talent."
