Song of the Week: The Pace of Glaciers by Outrun The Sunlight

WLM Reviews: Kenn Nardi – Dancing With the Past

I, along with numerous Metalheads, loved Anacrusis long ago when they were active. I still spin Screams and Whispers every once in a while. When I saw the name Kenn Nardi on an upcoming release, I was immediately interested to hear what he had been up to for the last 2 decades.
