5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent comeback. 8 Nov. 2014
By H. Spencer - Published on

Dancing With the Past finds Kenn Nardi taking the Anacrusis foundation – that solid bass tone, creative double-bass filled percussion and a technical progressive edge – and pushing it through a multitude of different styles. These styles run the gamut from Disintegration-inspired moodiness and atmosphere to aggressive technical thrash that wouldn’t sound out of place on Reason or Manic Impressions. In between these extremes are a collection of songs that, despite two decades in the making, sound remarkably cohesive thanks to that solid Anacrusis foundation and the diverse vocals of Kenn Nardi. Of course, fans shouldn’t expect Kenn Nardi’s first solo album to blindly follow the Anacrusis blueprint, because this is much more than just an Anacrusis release under a different name. In fact, Dancing With the Past would have probably never worked if it had been labeled as an Anacrusis release. It has been a long time coming, but Kenn Nardi has managed to release a double album without any real filler that is ambitious in scope and shouldn’t fail to satisfy old and new fans alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Live Anacrusis! 15 Nov. 2015
By Justin G. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It's been more than two decades since the release of Screams and Whispers, the final album from the criminally overlooked progressive thrash band Anacrusis. The band's recent reunion gave fans hope for a new album, but that reunion proved short-lived. That did not deter singer/guitarist/chief songwriter Kenn Nardi, who was already penning new songs as far back as 1994! As 2014 came to a close Nardi delivered his first-ever solo album, titled Dancing With the Past. It's a massive 28-song release spread across two discs, and it showcases the amazing creativity and talent Nardi has to offer.

While Dancing With the Past does feature a handful of contributions from Nardi's Anacrusis bandmates, the vast majority of these songs are written and performed by Nardi, who also produced and mixed the album. As you might expect, much of Dancing With the Past could pass as a new Anacrusis album, if not two. Nardi has moved beyond the thrash metal constraints over the years though, so this set is much closer to progressive metal territory. Still, the signature elements of Anacrusis's sound – those unique guitar riffs, prominent bass lines and of course Nardi's varying vocal styles – are very much in place here.

Beyond just the similarities to those classic Anacrusis albums – which are huge and undeniably why most people will be checking this set out in the first place – Dancing With the Past finds Nardi bringing in a wide and fascinating array of sonic elements. There are symphonic elements, atmospheric acoustic passages, a strong prog rock influence and even nods to gothic rock and new wave. And they all come together perfectly. The album maintains a cohesive feel and atmosphere no matter how avant-garde or experimental the songs get, or when the songs were originally developed.

Anacrusis fans have been waiting decades for new material, and while Dancing With the Past doesn't bear the Anacrusis logo, it absolutely has the Anacrusis spirit. And it's absolutely worth the wait. Kenn Nardi has put together a truly remarkable collection of innovative progressive metal songs here. In a genre where too many “progressive” bands have been content to follow an established formula, it's so good to see artists break from that formula and remind us what truly progressive music can be.

It goes without saying that Dancing With the Past is a must-have release for all Anacrusis fans. Beyond that, Kenn Nardi is an artist who just about any fan of progressive metal, particularly artists like Believer, Leprous and Cynic, should make it a point to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, album of the year right here!!!! 22 Nov. 2014
By Mojorusty - Published on
Bought this album on another website because I like to have the physical CD in hand, and just have to say this is an amazing album and I'm so happy I bought it. I can't stop listening to it, and even been sneaking it in at work between customers. Not really a weak song to be found in all it's 2 plus hours of music. This thing is massive, which is really cool of Kenn because he could easily have held half of the music back and made two separate CD's out of it and got twice the money. Really great album though, any fan of Anacrusis is going to absolutely love this album.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great music! 6 Mar. 2015

Anacrusis mastermind has done something big here with this collection of songs done during the course of two decades. This metal double album contains a wide range of emotions. The music is complex, melodic and emotional, trashy and progressive with trash and clean vocals. It's mostly guitar-bass-drums sounding music that is heavy and delicate at times with slow and fast tempo. The influence of Voivoid that made the reputation with Anacrusis is still there, and that can only brings some nostalgia to the music. Some vocals and passages remind me of Pain of Salvation music. The arrangements are diverse with some classical music. The song "A Little Light" is the ultimate ballad of this cd wtih a emotional atmosphere.

Kenn is one seriously talented man. Not one bad song on here nor does it get boring throughout its entirety. That's pretty amazing given the length of the album!
