And that’s it, folks.

Mayan, a band featuring Epica guitarist Mark Jansen alongside former After Forever member Jack Driessen with Frank Schiphorst, will release its sophomore album, Antagonise, on January 31, 2014, through Nuclear Blast Records.
The cover art for Antagonise was created by Stefan Heilemann, who previously worked on the band’s debut album, Quarterpast.
The 11-song effort was recorded at Sandlane studio with producer Joost Van Der Broek and features guest appearances by Floor Jansen, Marcela Bovio and the Greek virtuoso violinist Dimitris Katsoulis.
The concept for Antagonise is based on “the current state of the world which is going totally insane,” according to a press release.
“For example the explosive situation in Syria, governments who constantly accusing each other of lying, spying and using tricks to revoke their own population.”
