Keyboardist Shaz described his video:

 

“An added dimension resonating with soul is added to the Soundscape of Enigma in the form of its keyboards. Through strings and choirs alone, at times the listener is able to witness the glory of Heaven unfolding in the forefront of his mind, while at other times given a front seat to the dark, despairing depths of man’s inner turmoil. The atmospheric pads provide a journey through a cosmic universe, humbling one at the sheer glory of all that remains unknown and unseen.”

Today AEON ZEN are excited to share their new video with the masses. AEON ZEN’s founder Rich Hinks says of the new video, “Divinity shows a whole new side to AEON ZEN. There’s still all the elements that make it an AEON ZEN song, but there’s a ton more energy and heaviness, and even more technicality than we’ve ever put on a record before. Our goal for this track was to make a song that grabs you by the balls and doesn’t let up until the final blow.”
