Masterplan is a PowerMetal band formed by Uli Kusch and Roland Grapow in 2001 after the pair were fired from Music/{{Helloween}} for trying to go in a DarkerAndEdgier direction. They recruited Jorn Lande of the then recently broken up {{ARK}} to sing for them and released their self-titled debut in 2003. At that point, while ChildrenOfBodom keyboardist Janne "Warman" Wirman contributed during a few recording sessions, Kusch, Grapow and Lande were the only full members. When it came time to tour, they recruited keyboardist Alex Mackenrott and then-former and current ''Music/IronSavior'' bassist Jan-Soren Eckert. With their now full line-up, they released ''Aeronautics'' in 2005.

* HeavyMithril: Through their albums, there's the occasional fantasy theme, an album (''Aeronautics'') that is arguably about a pilot in WorldWarI and a significant amount of songs from ''Time to be King'' with science-fiction themes.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: "[[Music/IronSavior After The War]]" and "After This War" share some similarities, besides the name. This is likely thanks to the fact that former bassist Jan-Soren Eckert used to play for ''Music/IronSavior''.

* CreativeDifferences: The reason for Lande's departure, apparently.



* HeyItsThatVoice: Michael Kiske appears in "Heroes".



* StartMyOwn: Masterplan is the result of Grapow and Kusch being fired from Helloween.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Before approaching Lande, Grapow and Kusch offered Michael Kiske the vocalist position of Masterplan. Surprisingly, Kiske accepted... but it was only on the condition that he wouldn't have to tour. Not wanting to need a second vocalist for tours, Grapow and Kusch turned to Lande.
** Similarly, Russell Allen of Symphony X was originally intended to be the singer when the band was still a SideProject to Helloween. Both bands would no doubt have ended up very different if Kusch and Grapow hadn't been sacked.
