electricsight74 This dark energy, a propulsion of sorts driving the songs in parts and others the improvisation takes what is left of your mind and punts it out into the harbor. Favorite track: Clenched Brow.

Nick Bradey Amazing music - as expected with Markus Reuter. A few hints of Stickmen , but more
improvisation and spontaneity. Cannot recommend this too highly ! Favorite track: Tumbling in Slow Motion.

Carsten Pieper Markus Reuter is one of the most prolific musicians on the modern (prog and beyond) scene. Alas, far too few people outside of the "community" know him. But then, this clearly isn't music for the masses.
So, this is the 2nd release by his new band project. Thinking person's rock music, one might call it... Favorite track: Pounder.

yeahsee This whole album is in a league of it’s own. Xenomute stands out to me as a suspenseful moment of a build up to a creepy scene from a Fritz Lang film, Noir, etc. Eagerly awaited the release of this, now eagerly awaiting next months. Great stuff, again. Favorite track: Xenomute.

Anchor and Burden is an uncompromising progressive avantgarde doom-jazz post-metal band based in Berlin, Germany, which has their own style of collective instant composition that defies the norms of creation.
