Ken Jacobsen - Guitar
Guitarist, Ken Jacobsen, who some might remember as Ken Jack, founded U.P. as a renaming and continuation of Unleashed Power. With the consequent release of Unleashed Power's debut album, "Quintet of Spheres" behind him, Jacobsen utilized the experience to bring Mindfailure to life as the producer and songwriter.

Jörg Michael - Drums
Jörg Michael's most relevant projects to U.P. must be the classic, progressive, metal sounds of the Mekong Delta albums. After intense rehearsals between Ken and Jörg in Germany, the drums for Mindfailure were recorded -- in a converted W.W.II bunker! Jörg is also currently recording and touring with the Finnish band, Stratovarius.
Tony Spagone - Bass
Tony Spagone met up with Jörg at a studio session in Germany prior to the Mindfailure sessions. Tony's from Frankfurt and was playing the local German scene between touring, when Jörg mentioned UP was in need of a bassist. Tony's desire and skill to play progressive and heavy material found him the vacant position.
