MaYaN Discusses New Album, "Dhyana," Changing The Lineup And More

In April of this year, I had the pleasure of witnessing a unique show at the Tufnell Park Dome in North London here, which was headlined by Leaves Eyes and opened by Almanac (click on the names to see interviews with these bands.) Sandwiched in the middle and performing their first show in the United Kingdom (something I was not aware of coming into the venue) was MaYaN, the Dutch symphonic metal band which among other musicians includes Mark Jansen and Ariën van Weesenbeek of Epica.

Before the show took place, I was able to sit down with Jansen, as well as guitarist Frank Schiphorst and keyboardist Jack Driessen, to discuss the project in greater detail, their forthcoming third album, "Dhyana," which will be released on September 21st through Nuclear Blast and more. You can check it out below.
