Episode 216: Conor McGouran (Guitars/Keyboards) & Ronan Burns (Bass/Keyboards) of The Enigma Division discuss the recording and release of their incredible self title debut album.

February 17th, 2023

It was a pleasure to have Conor McGouran (Guitars/Keyboards) & Ronan Burns (Bass/Keyboards) of The Enigma Division on the Podcast. The lads along with Ben Wanders (Drums/Vocals) have unleased one of the best debut albums onto the Irish Metal for many a year! Self released on the 27th January of this year, it's a musical odyssey that defies categorization however their influences range from 80s synth music, film scores, progressive rock to tech metal. All the members of the band have been creating and playing in many bands throughout the years so it was exciting to hear that this project was finally going to get a release date in 2023. Conor & Ronan talk us through each track and we discuss the song writing process, video arrangements and guest performances. The musicianship throughout the entire album is breathtaking with vocal performances that are both powerful and emotional. I was delighted to find out that this album will make it to a stage and with an appearance in Bloodstock UK now confirmed; it's only a matter of time for The Enigma Division to rehearse these songs and nail down some Irish dates.
