All 'bout Metal Music 'n Life

Roland Grapow

Roland Grapow, born 30 August 1959 in Hamburg, Germany is a professional guitarist. Roland is most well known for his time in the power metal band Helloween, who he played with for 12 years after replacing founding member Kai Hansen.
Prior to joining Helloween, Grapow was a member of the heavy metal band Rampage. He joined the band in roughly 1979, and played on two of their studio albums “Victim Of Rock” in 1980, and “Love Lights Up The Night” in 1982. He left Rampage in roughly 1983. He was then fairly inactive until joining Helloween in 1989.
Roland played on the albums Pink Bubbles Go Ape, Chameleon, Master of the Rings, The Time of the Oath, High Live, Better Than Raw, Metal Jukebox, and The Dark Ride.
During his time with Helloween Roland also formed a solo project. The first release, The Four Seasons of Life, featured members of Helloween playing backup, with Roland trying his hand at singing in addition to guitar playing. On the second album, Kaleidoscope, current and former members of Yngwie Malmsteen’s band were utilised.
In 2001, Roland and bandmate Uli Kusch were fired from Helloween due to musical and personal differences. The side project they had been planning, Masterplan, instead became their new full-time band. Roland Grapow is a producer and main songwriter of Masterplan.
