MASTERPLAN Releases New Single “Rise Again”

Masterplan Band

MASTERPLAN, the German power metal band featuring former HELLOWEEN guitarist Roland Grapow, has released a new song, “Rise Again“. The official lyric video for the song can be seen below.

Following the band’s colossal anniversary edition, a 2023 reissue of their debut album via AFM Records, today, MASTERPLAN shares “Rise Again“, an epic, powerful song, and hopefully the first taste of their new album in the year -next year in the near future.

MASTERPLAN founding member and guitarist Roland Grapow commented: “After almost 10-11 years of silence, we are ready to burst on to the heavy metal scene again.

“We missed the audience and new emotions.

“This song is about how we felt during the last period. Everything in the world changes so quickly that sometimes it is very difficult to understand where you belong. And it seems that you are talented and worthy of success, but you begin to doubt yourself. And this is a big mistake.

“As usual and in the MASTERPLAN style, we try to be positive and this is the main goal of our creativity. We want to inspire our fans to find the strength to overcome life’s challenges. ‘Rise Again’ is the song about hope, life and better things to come, it’s like a phoenix rising from the ashes.”

MASTERPLAN was formed in 2001 and has released five studio albums “Masterplan” (2003), “Aeronautics” (2005), “MK II” (2007), “Time to Be King” (2010), “Novum Initium” (2013) as well as a compilation album containing songs created by Roland Grapow during his time with HELLOWEEN entitled “Pumpkings” (2017).

MASTERPLAN will team up with FIREWIND for a European tour starting in late February 2024.
