Dutch Symphonic death metal collective MaYaN release their new album Dhyana today. The band recorded their spectacular new full-length release alongside the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and the album reflects on conceptual themes of self-awareness, relinquishing our ego and self-conceited tendencies to find out who we truly are.
In celebration of the new album, MaYaN have released an official music video for their hymn, ‘Saints Don’t Die‘.
Singer Mark Jansen explains the background of the track:
“‘Saints Don’t Die’ deals with wars being fought on the backs of young men and women, who are sent to battle and then suffer the consequences their entire life time, while the ‘Saints’ stay in their ivory towers, just pulling the strings.”
