Local Metal Legends Anacrusis Reuniting

by

Locally based metal legends Anacrusis have reunited. From 1986 to 1993, the quartet toured with groups such as D.R.I., Megadeth and Overkill and released several albums on the well-respected label Metal Blade. Last year, Stormspell Records released the CD/DVD comp, Annihilation Complete: The Early Years Anthology, which featured Anacrusis' demo and video footage of vocalist/guitarist Kenn Nardi's pre-Anacrusis band, Heaven's Flame.

On April 18, the group will be doing a free, all-ages show with all four original members -- the first one in over twenty years, says its website -- at T. Billy Buffett's (9004 Overland Plaza; 314-427-1616). A week later, it'll be playing the "traditional heavy metal festival," Keep It True XIII, in Germany. Below, live footage from a 1993 show at Mississippi Nights.
