PostSubject: Anacrusis/Kenn Nardi - Dancing With The Past   Sun Feb 16, 2014 2:34 am

A double album!

Quote :
Audio samples of 14 of the songs songs that will appear on "Dancing With The Past", the forthcoming album from vocalist/guitarist Kenn Nardi of St. Louis, Missouri-based progressive/melodic thrash metallers ANACRUSIS, can be streamed below.

"I haven't decided whether to release it as ANACRUSIS or just a solo project," Nardi told Heavy Skull in a recent interview. "The music was all written with the intention of being ANACRUSIS, but I am playing everything myself aside from a handful of songs that John [Emery, bass] had already recorded the bass parts on.

"The idea was to track everything against programmed drum parts, so I could begin the process without having to record all of the drums first. Then we would go back and have Mike [Owen, drums] play the drums and replace them that way. We just never got far with them learning their parts and were not getting anything accomplished while I was still writing and tracking new songs. With so much new material, it would take forever with our current schedules to finish it, and I really wasn’t sure if John and Mike were really into doing it at all. Eventually, I just decided to do it all myself. Maybe this isn't the best way, but I did want to finish it and I am very happy with the results. I am also much happier to do what I want without having to get agreement from the other guys. Maybe they didn't like the direction I was headed musically. I don't know, but I am very excited about these new songs and I think this will be a metal album like none that has ever been done (or at least that I've ever heard)."

He added in an online posting: "Eliran Kantor is once again working on the cover art and I am also excited to see what 'face' he will give this album.

"As I said before, there will be be 28 songs, including one instrumental, and will range from mid-tempo 'classic' metal to thrash to doom along with some more mellow stuff, lots and lots of melody and even a brand new version of 'A Little Light' from my CRUEL APRIL project.

"Some of the songs originally reach back as far as 1994, shortly after the breakup of ANACRUSIS, some were written several years ago, some during our 2009-2013 reunion and others in recent weeks, so it will really represent 20 years of musical creativity that I have attempted to pull together into one cohesive collection of songs.

"The running time of the album will be approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes. That's just about as much music as can be crammed onto two CDs. It would also be great to do a vinyl version, but I'm afraid it would have to be a box-set just to fit everything in."

According to Sputnik Music, "Dancing With The Past" will feature the following track listing:

Disc one:

01. Unnecessary Evil
02. Fragile
03. Made
04. Armies Of One
05. Dead Letters
06. Submerged
07. Lament In Rust (instrumental)
08. [Not yet titled]
09. This Killer In My House
10. Await The Setting Sun
11. Untouchable
12. Stabbing Sorrow
13. The Dark And The Light
14. The Scarlet Letter

Disc two:

01. Spitting Bitter
02. Ordinary
03. Dancing With The Past
04. One World
05. Creve Coeur (A Place Called Broken Heart)
06. A Little Light
07. Blood In The Water
08. Dead Men's Bones
09. The Telling Skies
10. Climbing
11. Blinding Lies
12. Symbiotic
13. Beside Myself
14. The Runt

ANACRUSIS in 2010 spent time in the studio recording a "new" album entitled "Hindsight: Suffering Hour & Reason Revisited". The two-CD set featured both ANACRUSIS' debut album, "Suffering Hour", and its second release, "Reason", along with the classic ANACRUSIS demo track "Apocalypse", all fully re-recorded by the original lineup of Nardi, Kevin Heidbreder, John Emery and Mike Owen. The package also featured a 24-page, full-color booklet with lyrics and lots of photos both old and new. The cover art was created by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, SIGH, MEKONG DELTA, GWAR).

In 2009, Stormspell Records released the CD/DVD compilation, "Annihilation Complete: The Early Years Anthology", which featured ANACRUSIS' demo and video footage of Nardi's pre-ANACRUSIS band, HEAVEN'S FLAME.

I thought this was supposed to be called "Parallax Error."

Meh, I just hope they release it under the Anacrusis name.

Why? What name it comes out under is irrelevant. I think he should release it under that name, but it's not like it changes anything.

Well, of course it don't.

But would you rather own an album under the moniker of Megadeth (for example), or one called The Dave Mustaine Experience?

Wouldn't make a difference to me.

It'll sell more under the name ANACRUSIS and he has every right to release it under that name.  A label of decent size will demand that he do that.

Looks like this will be released by Divebomb in January (digital version in November), under the name Kenn Nardi.



Another really cool song.

Sounds good.
Will probably buy the CD.
I only own that Stormspell Records CD/DVD compilation, "Annihilation Complete: The Early Years Anthology", and "Manic Impressions" on Metal Blade cassette.

Was very cool of the band to have tons of free downloads of their music on their website.

Definitely a priority purchase, but I will change that sucker's name to Anacrusis as soon as I put it in my disc drive.

I'm just not fan of his work, that's all. The guy works hard in building a portfolio and offers artwork to many cult bands - nothing wrong with that of course, I just wish his taste would not have been so similar to mine - he mostly gets to bands I like and those shiny plastic digitally generated images spoil the overall experience for me Crying or Very sad

Divebomb Records is actually going to be shipping this next week. They have a nice habit of getting their product out before the official release date.

I bought the autographed version from http://knardi.bigcartel.com last night, but now it's showing Sold Out. Might have gotten the last copy. The link I followed, he'd posted back in mid-October and said just a few copies were left.

Works for me. Looks like a nice package, too.

Arrived today. I haven't listened to all of it yet, but so far it's pretty awesome. Nardi's voice is sick!

This will definitely be in my top 10 this year. Might top the list. Man, it's great. While not every song is great, they are all at least really good. Twenty-eight songs! Crazy.
