Enigma is the fourth studio album by the metal band Ill Niño, released in the United States on March 11, 2008 through Cement Shoes Records. The album's first single "The Alibi of Tyrants" was released to radio on April 22, 2007. The band has stated they would film three music videos from the album, including "The Alibi of Tyrants", "Me Gusta La Soledad" and "Pieces of the Sun". The album was originally set for a July 17, 2007 release, but was delayed on several occasions. The album is unavailable on most digital distribution platforms, including iTunes. This limited availability is attributed to the band releasing the album without paying the engineers and editors of the album, distribution of the album was subsequently blocked.

The album debuted and peaked on the Billboard charts at No. 145, with first weeks sales of 5,000 copies, a significant decrease when compared to their previous albums.[3] So far, the album has sold 80,000 copies worldwide.[4]
