Customer Reviews

Jorn Lande is a great singer with smooth melodic vocals.
Metalizer
Black In The Burn starts with Lande's desperate voice, evolving and growing in heaviness and speed to a great melodic metal fast chorus.
Roberto M. Barros
Their first album was excellent, but I believe this one is even better.

Boy was I looking forward to this release, but I was disappointed by the production this time. The guitar is so up front that the bass, drums and even Jorn are lost in the background, so some of the technical aspects are lost. Spin a few tracks from each project back to back and you'll probably agree. I also feel that this project is missing some of the creative variety that was present on their self titled CD like Heroes, Enlighten Me, and When Love Comes Close. I don't feel they wrote any songs that let Jorn showcase is awesome vocal talent.

While their first self-titled debut shocked the listener with its blend of master musicianship, playing metal in a lot of different disguises and textures, a bunch of great songs from beginning to end, this follow up is a little bit more like any generic European power metal band around. The songs are much less memorable, Uli Kusch did not resist to change the album into a double kick drums orgy, even Jorn Lande's amazing vocals do not seem so brilliant here.

I dont know what happened. I rea'd in a lot of magazines that this was superior than their debut, but it's not even close.

Another Masterplan album that leaves you smiling from one ear to the other. Definitely, when Helloween kicked out guitar Roland Grapow and drummer Uli Kusch, they threw away the best 40% of the band. Just compare it with Helloween's last and forgetful release "Rabitt don't come easy". In fact, the two fired "apprentices" are finally free from Helloween's style boundaries to create a masterpiece where the songs are all excelent and remarkably different, yet bearing the same signature of a band filled with talent, love for metal and inspiration.

Grapow is riffing like Judas Priest, soloing like a humble Malmsteen and composing like Adrian Smith. Uli Kusch is a monster drummer despite being an arrogant son of a b**** with the fans. Keyboards complement the song perfectly, increasing the song's feeling, no soloing like Stratovarius or too grandiose like Nightwish. But the name of the game is Jorn Lande. The best description of his voice is David Coverdale singing Dio-like songs with James LaBrie (Dream Theater) feeling and interpretation. His voice always seems perfect, whether he is screaming for vengeance or whispering about love. You have to listen to believe.

- Crimson Rider is a great and fast opener with perfect chorus and guitar solo.

- Back For My Life (first single) starts singing melancholic and move to a chorus that asks God for redemption followed by tetric keys. Spooky and great.

- Wounds is very melodic, mixing current Helloween rythm, Jorn Lande voice and Stratovarius keys, a great song.

- I'm Not Afraid is very interesting, one of my faves. Epic opening, slow evolution and a hair band, poppy chorus that will make you sing from the first time, all adding to a slow, melodic and long guitar solo.

Long review short, Masterplan's sophomore album Aeronautics is a step down from their eponymous debut, but it will still please most of their fans, considering the amazing musicianship, vocals, and the incredible production it encompasses.

The album begins with crunch-filled riffs by Roland Grapow thickened with ferocious bass and pounding drums. "Crimson Rider" was inspired by a pilot who lost his life in France during WW1. It's a brief yet hard-hitting opener that flows into the more mid-tempo "Back for My Life" where Axel Mackenrott's excellent keyboards underpin Jorn Lande's dramatic vocals. Speaking of Mackenrott, his keyboard contribution to Aeronautics is tremendous. I will respectfully disagree with other reviewers who say this album has little keyboard utilisation. To me, Aeronautics has more prevalant synth arrangements than the debut and some songs actually seem like they were penned around keyboard-generated ideas. On "I'm Not Afraid", not only do Grapow and Kusch revisit their earlier Helloween days, the song also has an undeniable symphonic power metal backdrop. Mackenrott tightly knits a web of symphonic aura that lets Lande shift smoothly between his crystalline and more aggressive vocals. The song also has some of his best screams on it that get really intense at the end. "Wounds" is the band's take on classic Euro power metal with a lot of double bass drums, poppier harmony guitars, cathcy choruses, and an enjoyable guitar and synth interplay. "Into the Arena", while sonically heavier, also expands on mighty synth work, tastefully placed far back in the mix by Roy Z. Great bass from Jan-S Eckert and a driving guitar melody hold the song together while Jorn Lande gets to convince those who are still unconvcined that he is one of the best vocalists in the universe.

In order to do a review, i try to be objective first.Well, the music here is much more elaborate in it's arrangements and vocal melodies, but without falling in a technical metal aproach.

Unfortunately, this album touch me in several subjectives ways so i stop being objective from now on.My ears are always craving for some touching melodic fest within the metal frame.In Kamelot i found this characteristic and also Sonata Arctica; Angra; Symphony X; Helloween and Blind Guardian give me that too.The debut album from Masterplan of course has plenty of melodic hooks galore (and by the way it's one of the best debuts in Metal Hystory...check it out!)but in this work the band has really surpase themselves in every way! What a great vocalist Jorn Lande is, man.Roland is at his shredding best, truly in top form.I never heard him so good in Helloween.Maybe they didn't push him enough!And Uli is doing some great varied stuff here, his work here is the best since The Time Of The Oath from Helloween.The choruses of all the songs are catchy as hell but without being pop-like, chessy or corny.As much as i liked the debut, there were several filler in there and in this i don't find any.Only high quality stuff throughout.My favourite song anyway is Wounded, one of the most power metal oriented tracks.Also: Crimson Rider; Back For My Life and Falling Sparrow are awesome album highlights.But i repeat: all of them will make an everlasting impression on you, like they did on me.

Highly Recommended.
