MaYaN - new trailer online! - 2018-09-10

2018-09-10 - Only 11 days left before symphonic death metal collective MaYaN will enlighten your spirit with their epic new album »Dhyana« on September 21st. For this prodigious third studio masterpiece, the international 10 piece raised over €40.000 through a crowdfunding campaign and enlisted the skills of The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, known for their work in cinematic features such as the Star Wars saga, Hannibal and many more. The new full-length release reflects on conceptual themes such as self-awareness, relinquishing our ego and self-conceited tendencies to find out who we truly are.

Today, the band unveils a new trailer, in which Jack Driessen explains some details about the songwriting of the new track 'Satori' from MaYaN’s upcoming album »Dhyana«; how iconic composers such as Ennio Morricone inspired him and how the orchestral parts of the track were created and recorded. Watch the trailer here: https://youtu.be/tEGzigEY5pk



The band will celebrate the new album with several "Dhyana Release Parties" in September and has also announced the first two festival appearances for 2019 at Metal On The Hill and ProgPower USA:

21.09. NL Reuver - De Schakel (Try out show)
