Enigmatic: Calling is the third studio album by Pagan’s Mind. It is also the bands second longest album, playing for 68.35 minutes. According to the liner notes, Enigmatic: Calling was inspired by “a number of great thinkers, philosophers, scientists, writers, and film directors,” including Erich von Däniken, Albert Einstein, and Steven Spielberg. Some of the lyrics address “the idea that mankind was originally created, constructed, and placed here on Earth as a genetically modified species created as a project by ‘aliens’.” 

Steinar Krokmo told Metal Rage in 2005: “We get a lot of inspiration from our adolescence where any thought or dream seemed possible, really, growing up reading about the great wonders and mysteries of the world, for instance, Erich Von Danicken, Shirley MacClaine, Carl Sagan, Tolkien etc. There are many thoughts and philosophies around us in modern society and how mankind perceive the pure excistence of itself, and those are real issues that I believe everyone asks themselves once in a while.”
