Belgian symphonic death metal band MAYAN used to boast two members of EPICA. While guitarist Mark Jansen is still firmly in place, guitarist Isaac Delahaye has left the group.
“We all enjoy being part of this awesome band but we also realise that each band member has a busy career next to it...” commented Mayan. “We all agreed to respect that from each other when we started this adventure. Isaac has decided to not take part in Maya anymore. You can read his statement below:”
“I recently decided to leave Mayan, because I want to concentrate on other things. For Quarterpast I got asked to join as a session musician, and I’ve gladly helped them out. Now I feel it’s time to pass this on to someone else. It was absolutely awesome to be part of this, to help build up this band, and I wanna thank the fans, the band & everyone involved for the good times. Now all Mayan has to do, is finish that new album so I have some decent stuff to listen to!”
Mayan went on to add, “We hugely thank Isaac for his amazing contributions, the funny moments and dedication. Possibly we’ll share the stage again in the future. We’re already working with a very likely replacement for the job, soon more news on that. For now we stay focussed on mixing the upcoming album. We can’t wait to share it with you!”
