Metal Blade Records Re-Issues Anacrusis Titles Suffering Hour, Reason, Manic Impressions, And Screams and Whispers

Metal Blade Records reissued the first four records from overlooked technical speed metal act Anacrusis during the last quarter of 2019.  Hailing from St. Louis, Anacrusis incorporated crossover elements infused with familiar speed metal tropes, and later added more accessible progressive heavy metal elements while remaining musically astute.

Fans of Vio-lence and Prong will likely find something of interest here, and students of heavy metal history would do well seek out these recordings. Metal Blade issued the following statement:

This fall (2019), Metal Blade Records will re-issue Anacrusis‘ classic albums: Suffering Hour (September 27th), Reason (September 27th), Manic Impressions (November 15th), Screams and Whispers (November 15th). Available as digipak CDs (with bonus tracks) and limited vinyl, these are must-have editions for any Anacrusis fan!
