Symphonic death metallers Mayan have shared the first taste of their third studio album “Dhyana”. “The Rhythm Of Freedom” is the name of the first single and it comes with a lyric video, which you can watch below.
For this album, the band raised over €40.000 through a crowdfunding campaign and teamed up with 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 and relinquishing our ego and self-conceited tendencies to find out who we truly are.
“”The Rhythm Of Freedom” references the sensation of pure freedom you feel when riding your bike or bicycle,” comments Mark Jansen. “This also refers to the album title Dhyana, which stands for the moment where the mind gets absorbed by the heart and you feel total happiness without worries about the past and future. But the mind, like a predator, is always waiting for the moment to take over control again.”
“Dhyana” comes out September 21, 2018 via Nuclear Blast.
