Vanden Plas is a German progressive metal band, based in Kaiserslautern and founded in 1986. The band surrounding vocalist Andreas Kuntzhave succeeded in making a name for themselves on an international level, enjoy almost cult status in France, have been touring all overEurope with established acts like Dream Theater, Savatage or Angra and can point to a number of impressive releases, among them threestudio albums, a live cut, an unplugged recording, and several EPs.

Since the late Eighties, when the band first got together, Vanden Plas never lost sight of their ambitious goal: expressive music with emotionaldepth and a melancholy prog metal corset. Starting off with their debut album Colour Temple (1994), the band continued to gather an ever-increasing following with their versatile, intuitive and always unbridled lust for playing. Two years later, in 1997, Vanden Plas brought out theirepic bombast successor The God Thing, which was praised by renowned magazines like Metal Hammer, Rock Hard, Burrn!, Aardschock andFlash. A six week tour with Dream Theater followed, like a sort of knighthood conferred on the highest level. The group went on to bring out theunplugged EP AcCult, on which the fascinating aspects of their compositions came to fruition in all their purity. Each Vanden Plas releaseshows the great musical diversity of the five band members, who have all repeatedly been involved in theatre projects and rock musicals like‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’, ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ or ‘Evita’. « hide
