MaYaN Posts New Video, “Dhyana” Online

MaYaN have released a video for the title track of their upcoming Dhyana album, out on September 21st via Nuclear Blast. Watch the clip below, and pre-order the album here.

Dhyana: the moment when the individual mind is absorbed by the heart and melts with the universal mind.

Through his musical contributions in Epica, After Forever and MaYaN, Mark Jansen has introduced another piece of knowledge, spirituality and mystery into the Dutch metal scene. For the third time since their inception in 2010, the now 10-piece symphonic death metal band has joined forces for a new album, and their latest opus Dhyana is set to lift them to an entirely new level.

Mastermind Mark Jansen states: “We have worked with all our energy, efforts and passion to create a remarkable album. “Dhyana” (which means the moment when the mind gets absorbed by the heart) makes us all very proud and we can’t wait for it to be released. With the support of our loyal fans worldwide we were able to record the album with the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Because of this and also producer Joost van den Broek’s know-how and enormous motivational drive we were able to meet the high standards of the best productions of today. It’s needless to say that we are extremely excited!!!”

The concept of this third full-length release reflects on conceptual themes such as being self-aware of our thoughts and relinquishing our egos and self-conceited tendencies to finding out who we truly are.

Tracklisting:

1. The Rhythm Of Freedom
2. Tornado Of Thoughts – I Don’t Think Therefore I Am
3. Saints Don’t Die
4. Dhyana
5. Rebirth From Despair
6. The Power Process
7. The Illusory Self
8. Satori
9. Maya – The Veil Of Delusion
10. The Flaming Rage Of God
11. Set Me Free

Avenged Sevenfold Cancels North American Tour Dates With Prophets Of Rage

Avenged Sevenfold has announced that they have been forced to cancel their planned tour North America with supergroup Prophets Of Rage as a result of vocalist M Shadows suffering from a vocal chord injury. This includes their planned headlining spot at the Heavy MTL festival, where their place will be taken by Limp Bizkit. A statement from M Shadows reads as follows:

“There is no good way to start out a note containing bad news but here it is.

“After Europe I came down with a terrible viral infection that rendered me voiceless.

“I tried my best to take care of the situation with voice rest, medication and doctor visits but the voice was only getting worse.

“After a week of steroids, the swelling went down enough to see the cause of the problem. A blood blister has formed on my vocal folds and is preventing them from vibrating properly. In short, I can’t sing anything at the moment and the more I attempt to, the more damage is being done. Luckily, as of now the doctors feel that 3 months of no singing and voice rest should get my chords back on track.

“Unfortunately, this means we will have to cancel all tour dates at the moment.

“Decisions like this weigh on me very heavily. It’s a tour I was looking forward to very much. I want to apologize to the fans who have spent their time and money booking travel arrangements and accommodations. I also want to apologize to our crew and the other bands who were depending on this tour.

“None of these things are lost on me.

“Just know that I have exhausted every possible solution in trying to get out there and perform for you. It just simply can’t happen at the moment.

“We have a few things coming down the pipe soon that should be fun, so we hope you look out for those.

“Again, I am deeply sorry and hope to see you all soon.

“In silence,

“M”

Triptykon Frontman Thomas Gabriel Fischer’s Arm Broken In ‘Unprovoked, Drug-Fuelled’ Attack

The right arm of Triptykon mainman Thomas Gabriel Fischer (ex-Celtic Frost) was broken this past weekend in what he describes as “an unprovoked, ultra-violent, and drug-fuelled attack.”

Comments Fischer of the attack and the healing process:

“Once my right arm, shattered in an unprovoked, ultra-violent, and drug-fuelled attack, has healed sufficiently, I will again be able to tend to the rapidly accumulating mails in a far more timely manner. According to the doctors who are tending to me, this should occur sometime in August.

As my arm is entombed in a full-length cast right now, I am rather clumsy with my utterly unprepared left hand, and writing (and everything else) is a quite challenging proposition at the moment. The hospital staff felt sufficient pity to at least provide me with a suitably black cover for the cast.

And for those inevitably curious, yes, I was ultimately able to regain the initiative and defend myself, with a broken arm and in spite of being disadvantaged due to the element of surprise and the ferocity of the attack. True to his obvious disposition as a coward, the attacker swiftly took flight when he realized I was subsequently going for his life.

I had certainly pictured my return home from the extraordinary 20th anniversary celebrations of the Museum HR Giger to take an entirely different course. Alas, this is the real world, and these are the realities of life.

I detest violence, and I equally detest the effects of alcohol and drugs which solely serve to amplify the grave shortcomings of us members of the human race.

We will not cancel any Triptykon concerts, of course, but I will only be able to sing at the moment, returning to the guitar as the speed of my recovery will permit.”

“We wanted the video to capture the horror, overwhelming grief and the dark reality of an untimely death. The video features post mortem photography as it directly reflects the subject matter.
