Video footage of the reunited St. Louis, Missouri-based progressive/melodic thrash metal act ANACRUSIS playing the song "Present Tense" at rehearsal on March 24, 2010 at Utopia Studios in St. Louis can be viewed below.
ANACRUSIS recently spent time in the studio putting the finishing touches on a "new" album, entitled "Hindsight: Suffering Hour & Reason Revisited". According to the band, the two-CD set will feature 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 Kenn Nardi, Kevin Heidbreder, John Emery and Mike Owen. The package will also feature 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).
