MaYaN - Audio Teaser Online


Back in September, we introduced you to MaYaN the new project led by Epica vocalist/guitarist Mark Jansen.

The line-up is completed with guitarist/vocalist Frank Schiphorst and ex-After Forever keyboardist Jack Driessen, together with fellow Epica band mates Isaac Delahaye (guitar) and Ariën van Weesenbeek (drums). Due to his "very busy schedule," Obscura/Pestilence bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling recently left the band and got replaced by Delain bassist Rob van der Loo.

The band's debut album Quartertpast is scheduled for a May 20th release through Nuclear Blast Records. The album was recorded and mixed by Sascha Paeth (Epica, Kamelot). You can download an album teaser at this location (mp3).

The album will also feature collaborations from Floor Jansen (ReVamp, ex-After Forever), Simone Simons (Epica), Henning Basse (Sons Of Seasons) and opera singer Laura Macri.

As stated by Mark Jensen: "The music is a mixture of death, black and progressive metal combined with symphonic orchestral arrangements."

A lot more female vocals than I expected. Sounds good though!

I'll stick with Epica. Didn't like the samples at all.

Okay, that project may be good but so far, the samples haven't grown on me. Like, at all.

@Jiri: Give me a "joke band" definition, please.

Exactly, I guess this is a ridiculous attempt at attracting new listeners to Epica's already huge fanbase... $$$

perhaps it's not to attract new listeners.. maybe mark just wanted to make an album with some other people.. by the way people give comments here it looks like non of you are musicians
