By Justin G. TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 23, 2010
Of all the metal bands to emerge in the `80s, Anacrusis is one that by all rights should have gone way beyond "cult" status. At the very least, their unique vision of progressive thrash metal should have made Anacrusis a hallowed name in progressive metal circles alongside Cynic, Atheist and Believer. For whatever reason, Anacrusis has remained one of metal's best kept secrets. Now, for the first time, the band's earliest recordings have been collected on CD with StormSpell's 2010 collection Annihilation Complete: The Early Years Anthology.

As the title suggests, this anthology includes the band's 1986 demo release, titled Annihilation Complete. It also includes re-recorded versions of the Annihilation Complete songs from 1987 plus a few additional rehearsal demos. The demos collected here are all fairly rough, having been recorded on less than state of the art equipment a long time ago. However, they have been remastered by guitarist/vocalist Kenn Nardi so they sound as good as possible. As for the songs themselves, these are raw, energetic metal songs that combine classic melodic elements with a good dose of speed and thrash metal aggression. You don't get a lot of the progressive technicality that the band is known for, but there's definitely something that sets these songs apart.

Annihilation Complete: The Early Years Anthology also includes a DVD featuring historic Anacrusis performances from 1987 and 1988 as well as a 1986 performance by Nardi's pre-Anacrusis band Heaven's Flame. The audio and video quality is a bit rough, but that's to be expected given the age and quality of the source material. Nardi also mastered and edited the DVD.
