Nick Bradey All of the Anchor and Burden releases are excellent . Markus is on top form as always .
Partly reminiscent of Stickmen but with more improvisation. I enjoy music from both of these sources. It would be excellent if Markus performed a session with Stickmen .
Hopefully both Stickmen and Markus will at least consider this possibility.

Cujo DeSockpuppet I believe this is the first I bought from the band, I have purchased other work with and by Markus for years, mostly as CDs. This is an amazing lineup. Keep putting them out and I'll keep buying.

Now on to the music.

This is intense yet keeps rolling along with fresh ideas throughout. This is one of my favorites for driving as it keeps me engaged. Sorry, don't own a boat so I can't comment on that aspect.

Carsten Pieper Many knots to form a long string, so to say. The first album of Markus Reuter's new outfit Anchor and Burden makes me want more, but Markus already announced much more to come ;-)
Two touch guitars, keyboards/electronics and drums. The one tag provided (among "Berlin") is simply "rock", but if you know Markus & Co you might not be surprised to learn, that this offering is on the experimental side of rock music (and arguably sometimes beyond). But that is a good thing, of course :-)

Anchor and Burden Berlin, Germany

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. They create monolithic doom behemoths only to tear them into shreds with boundless energy in the next moment. ... more
