Guest review by
Anacrusis is one of those excellent but unfortunately much underrated and quite unknown bands and "Suffering Hour" is their first album. It is not one of those planned "write and record" albums as only four of the nine songs were written while the band was together as a whole. Some songs come from the vocalist/guitarist's Ken Nardi's high-school band Heaven's Flame (which also featured Chad Smith as a drummer who joined Anacrusis in 1990) and some songs were written by the band's guitarist Kevin Heidbreder before Ken Nardi joined them. "Suffering Hour" was recorded by the band itself, in seven days and with their own funds.

The album's recording was self-financed by band to the tune of $ 1200
Therefore - musical quality of the albums depends only on the inspiration of the musicians ...

Maybe one of best technical thrash metal bands ever and Fighting Evil is one of my fav songs, I like how he mix thrashy grows, whit calm singing sessions, excellent combination, maybe one of most underrated bands in metal history, I dont know, but I have a feeling pll cant see farer away from Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer and Kreator
excellent album , exelent band
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

Eh? So you gave 6.75 rating in average to their records - which is almost 2 points lower than the rest of people here and elsewhere - and yet you claim it to be "most underrated".
Can it be that you have troubles not only with English syntax but also with semantics?
