The album’s first full song sample, the track “Within an Inch,” has just been launched online for you to check out via the website of UK’s Prog magazine. Check it out here:


ENCHANT’s Douglas A. Ott checked in with the following comment about the song:
“‘Within an Inch’ is a song about coming as close to death as possible without dying.
I was in a horrible accident when I was 20 years old and almost died when I was run over by a fork lift. This song is about that experience.”
