Andi commented on the video:
"The vocals on any AEON ZEN record are always a cacophonous spectacle of layers, harmonies and characterizations done by some of the best voices in the business - and, of course, me. Nowhere is this more evident than in our latest offering - Enigma. Join me, if you will, in an exploration of the five places on Enigma where the vocals really make the album shine."
