This latest visual offering capitalizes on the group’s uniqueness and I urge you to see it.

Extreme music and agression are a marriage made of potency. Forever boiling, the power is as unyeilding as it is unforgiving. A constant flux, these levels of magnitism are what make metal universal.


MaYaN is from the Netherlands and have been active since 2010. So far the band has released two studio albums. A new 2CD effort, Dhyana, was released September 21st via Nuclear Blast.

MaYaN’s music can be considered symphonic death metal but the band’s utilization of five different vocalists: two female and three male, really put them into a class all of their own. This latest visual offering capitalizes on the group’s uniqueness and I urge you to see it.

The video follows the perilous journey of a soldier at war who’s greatest adversary is the devil himself. Not to give away any plot details, let’s just say that unjustifiable crimes committed during war should have consequences. My favorite part of this effort is the ending, open ended expression of the priest makes one wonder if the true ruler of humankind is the conscience we live with.

“Saints Don’t Die” was my first exposure to the band and I will openly admit that I want more. Check out this amazing video and join me in MaYan worship. \m/
