Editorial Reviews

The new album showcases the current condition of our society, in which our freedom and privacy are further limited. The lies and propaganda from governments all over the world, the spying, a so called “war on terror”, the insinuated “freedom” we get just to keep us under control… This translated through Mark Jansen's sharp view and the band's characteristic style of Symphonic Progressive (Death) Metal for maximum expression results in the perfect and most powerful and confronting album possible to date. With their first release »Quarterpast« (2011) MAYAN got instant recognition in the media as has proven by the excellent reviews, in-depth interviews with many provoking questions about the band‘s point of view and raving reactions of fans throughout the world.

As I see it, MaYaN is Mark Jansen's opportunity to break the surly bonds of melody, and indulge his penchant for aggressive rhythmic percussion guitar and harsh political vocals. It is his "solo" effort (You know... "Mark YaNsen"... get it?). That is what I expected when I picked this album up, and that is what it delivers.

The songs come across fairly well, particularly if one agrees with Jansen's politics (which I do). The guitars are dutifully rhythmically aggressive, with occasional riffs of brilliance; there are some sound clips from various prominent public figures to accent the music; and Weesenbeek's drums are exciting, as always. However, I cannot help but feel that this work is a bit melodically challenged. I enjoy it all, but when it is over, I remember almost none of it. There just seemed to be no noteworthy melodic moments, no countermelodies worth listening for. The drumming is a high point, but it cannot carry the music alone. When the album is over, I find myself humming ditties from the first MaYaN album. That will probably change as I listen more.

Floor Jansen makes a cameo appearance, but most of the clean vocals seem to be from Henning Basse and Laura Macri, who do well; Macri, in particular, has a terrific voice. Still, my feeling was that they just don't add the spark of Simone Simons (who took the album off - she has a new baby, after all) or Floor Jansen (who is desperately busy with several other projects).

Mark Jansen is on my short list of artists from whom I'll buy anything they produce, and I enjoy this work (hey - four stars!). Still, I cannot feel that it is up to the standard of the first MaYaN album, or of Diabulus in Musica, or any of the other outside projects Jansen has engaged in. Get this if you feel as I do about Jansen's work. Otherwise... look forward to the new Epica album coming out in May.

I'm a fan of Mark Jansen for his work with Epica, and I enjoyed the first Mayan album, so figured I should get this one. It's heavy, the drumming is really good, there are some great riffs spread throughout the album. I think I just didn't like the melodic male singer in the album. But good production and good album overall.

This is honestly a good album. It does help to agree with their politics, but even if you don't the tracks themselves are catchy and well orchestrated. The melodic death metal combo really does work for bands like MaYan and Dark Tranquility.

The first CD by Mayan was in my opinion much better that this and I would give that maybe 3 1/2 stars. I have listened to this one twice and just have not gotten in to it. I will wait a bit and give it another shot. If not it goes in the closet.

Knowing that Floor Jansen was singing made me buy it instantly. But it's not worth it, boring composition, it's like listening to the same song over and over... And Floor was lost in this.
