German melodic metal band MASTERPLAN has announced the addition of singer Mike DiMeo (RIOT, THE LIZARDS) and drummer Mike Terrana (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, AXEL RUDI PELL, METALIUM, RAGE) to the group's ranks.

MASTERPLAN recently began recording its third album — the group's first without singer Jorn Lande, who announced his departure in early May. Drummer Uli Kusch — who left the band a few days ago — was reportedly present during the initial recording sessions for the new CD, but it is not currently clear if any of his contributions will make the final cut.

According to a statement released by MASTERPLAN in May, Lande's exit was caused by increased "musical differences" between the vocalist and the rest of the band. During the songwriting process for the group's third album, it became increasingly apparent that the other members of the band had different visions and plans for the group's musical direction. While Jorn wanted MASTERPLAN to follow a more melodic path, the rest of the band wanted to return to the metallic roots of their debut album.

The band's final show with Lande took place on August 8 at Lokersefeesten in Belgium.
