In the immortal words of Flava Flav, ‘Don’t Believe The Hype’, however, in this case, it’s quite the opposite. Progressive heavy/tech project, THE ENIGMA DIVISION have been blowing minds throughout the year with each single from their forthcoming debut. Today, they have unveiled another, in the form of ‘CLARITY’. Watch exclusively below…

With two exceptional singles released over the last 6 months, The Enigma Division it’s quite obvious that The Enigma Division are sitting on, what could be, one of the most epic debut albums from the progressive netherworld.

The Neon Mirage‘ and ‘Afterglow‘ took the listener beyond orbit into realms of virtuosic excellence packed with meaty riffing, jaw-dropping solos boasting a rhythm section tighter than a Nun’s ninny!

Always a band that holds many a surprise in their songwriting, ‘Clarity‘ sees a very different pace from the previous two singles. Check it out for yourself below:

Ex-Xerath guitarist/composer/founding member Conor McGouran talked to us about the track:

CONOR – “‘Clarity’ grew out of my own issues with panic attacks and anxiety a couple of years back. During the same period close friends, associates, and family members had passed away.

To help heal from this, a good friend suggested that I write music representing the way I wanted to feel. Once the music was complete, I sent it to William Alex Young who complimented these themes fantastically.

It really helped in my own journey of self-forgiveness, grief and acceptance. It is musically quite a departure from our other songs but we’re influenced by quite a mix of musical styles. I guess this one taps into our more Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack and Depeche Mode influences. It serves as a break from the more intense heavier material and will hopefully give someone a little tranquillity in tough times.”
