Kenn Nardi Releases New Solo Album “Dancing With The Past”

Kenn Nardi – guitarist/vocalist/producer and chief writer for Anacrusis from 1986-1993 – went the solo route under the Cruel April moniker in 2006, weaving acoustically-driven material that was free of any genre expectations looming over his head.

On his new album, “Dancing With The Past,” Kenn Nardi has brought together all of the signature elements of Anacrusis’ sound, and melded them with the more streamlined songwriting approach of Cruel April. The result is a 2-CD collection featuring 28 brand new recordings of songs written as far back as 1994.

Cruel Hand To Release New EP “Born Into Debt, We All Owe A Death”

Closed Casket Activities confirms the pending release of a furious new 7″ from Portland, Maine-based hardcore henchmen, Cruel Hand.

Cruel Hand shot an official video for one of the brutal tracks from the EP, titled “3s,” featuring both high-def performance footage of the band cut-up with film from an unsettling nocturnal carrion-collecting trip in the vast Maine wilderness. Check out the video below, courtesy of Metal Injection.

The “Born Into Debt, We All Owe A Death” 7″ is available for preorder at this location. The following press release was also issued about the band:

“Influenced by the likes of the Melvins, Entombed, Smashing Pumpkins and Biohazard, Cruel Hand is about Cruel Hand and there are no boundaries. The band’s style puts them in a league of their own. Following an LP on 6131 Records and two subsequent LPs on Bridge 9, the upcoming Born Into Debt, We All Owe A Death 7″ bears two high octane anthems and a cover to hold fans over until their next full-length is released.”
