AFM Records had hinted to a new Masterplan line-up reveal a few days ago and now Masterplan has officially announced that Rick Altzi (At Vance, Thunderstone, Epysode) will be the band's new vocalist, replacing Jørn Lande, and Jari Kainulainen (ex-Stratovarius) will take over bass duties. The band is currently recording their new album to be released next year.

The band left the following message, without explaining much, on their official website: "The new members in the band are Rick Altzi on vocals and Jari Kainulainen on bass guitar! (Of course the website will be updated very soon...)."

I can't see this going down well...and I'm not even a fan of Masterplan! (like Jorn Lande from his appearance in Avantasia, though)

I agree!

To quote an online friend, "no Jorn makes baby Jesus cry." Nice for Jari though, he's a cool bassist.

Well that's a shame for the band. I don't know the new singer, but I hope he's good.

I didn't even knew Jorn was out band again... Well, good luck for Rick and for the band.

He's not.



Another band spoiled by a singer change.

Oh dear, the chorus of this song shows more promise for the Masterplan style than the rest of the song. Just have to see how it turns out I guess.
BaneConall - 07.11.2012 at 22:08  
Well, this just killed all excitement that I had for their upcoming album.

I lost interest in this band when Uli Kusch left... Man, they had a killer line-up in the beginning: Grapow, Kusch, Warman, Lande... Now it's just an "another power metal band".

Totaly Agree

I don't like this .

Jorn is one of my favourite vocalists, so I don't think I'd ever like this, but there you go, that's where I stand on the matter. Still, at least Mr. Lande is one of those guys who does things with everybody who'll let him into a studio with them, so I won't have to wait too long to hear him again.
VanHelsing - 08.11.2012 at 02:04  
I like Altzi, but... I can't envision Masterplan without Lande, I guess it won't work out, although I hope I'm wrong.
Kuroboshi - 08.11.2012 at 03:22  
He'd better not use those kind of vocals on a Masterplan record. I can't imagine it.
Susan - 08.11.2012 at 04:03  
Jorn left again? Masterplan, I can't keep up with your line-up changes!!!
Danyael - 08.11.2012 at 12:44  
Well, this is getting ridiculous.
R'Vannith - 08.11.2012 at 14:48  
I had forgotten Jorn rejoined the band and now he's off again.. the guy can't stay put. That Altzi guy is mediocre at best.

Altzi is a great singer, check this out!
However, I'm also disappointed in this line-up change. Jørn has a certain magic that I think was missing in "MK II".
Daggon - 08.11.2012 at 17:38  
Although I like Altzi's vocal duties, I have to say I would prefer Jorn Lande anytime of the day, but oh well, they have great musicians and their style isn't that one of "just another power metal band", so I hope the best for their new album.
Mountain King - 08.11.2012 at 18:42  
I don't care about Jorn, it's just the songs on the first 2 are great. I liked MK II and vocally it's great. So this an be a good album although I'm not sure Rick is the best choice...
Akula - 10.11.2012 at 01:34  
Wow, Masterplan RIP.
The Shape 1973 - 11.11.2012 at 13:15  
Thunderstone were a great band with their original singer, then Rick came. Where are they now? Gone.

Goodbye Masterplan, goodbye.
Identitarian - 15.11.2012 at 16:57  
Altzi is not the best singer ever, but he is clearly better than his predecessor. I can not stand Landes voice, therefore, I think this is good news. Does anyone know why Jörn left the band?
Angelic Storm - 17.11.2012 at 11:02  
Well, MK III was a decent album despite Jorn not being at the helm, but Mike DeMio was a very good singer even if he wasn't as distinctive as Jorn. I'm still interested in hearing the new album, but certainly much less so now that I know Jorn is no longer in the band.
