2014 two CD set from the heavy metal great. As the guitarist/vocalist/producer and chief writer, arranger and lyricist of Anacrusis from 1986-1993, Kenn Nardi was widely recognized as one of heavy metal's most forward-thinking musical minds. After releasing four albums between 1998 and 1993 wi th Anacrusis, Kenn Nardi went the solo route under the Cruel April moniker in 2006, weaving acoustically-driven material that was free of any genre expectations looming over his head. On his 2014 album, DANCING WI th THE PAST, Kenn Nardi has brought together all of the signature elements of Anacrusis' sound, and melded them wi th the more streamlined songwriting approach of Cruel April. The result is a two CD collection featuring 28 brand new recordings of songs written as far back as 1994. The collection also features material born from collaborations wi th Kenn Nardi's former Anacrusis band mates during their 2009-2012 reunion run. Clocking in at over 2 1/2 hours, DANCING WI th THE PAST keeps true to the avant-garde spirit that made Kenn Nardi's songwriting and his former band so thrilling while pushing the songwriting and compositional boundaries even further. Quite simply, DANCING WI th THE PAST promises to be the album Anacrusis fans have waiting for only full of surprises they never expected.
