    This album is hard to catergorize. It is spoken word, but it is over ambient music with an electronica feel.

    The Hashisheens were a small sect with assasination missions put together by Hasan-i-Sabbah in 1090 a.d. Using the delights of a literal Garden of Pleasures that he built where „free women” and cannabis were abound, he was literally brainwashing his troops while they were on trance and assigning them missions.
    The Hashisheen were feared because of their dedication and loyalty to Hasan and because they opposed both Islamic as well as Christianic figures of the time.
    In this incredible album, the original texts left behind by Hasan are read by artists such Iggy Pop, Anne Clarke or William Burroughs and Patti Smith to name but a few, while the musical layers accompanying them are a gracious mix of psychedelic dub and trip-hop (allthough it’s actually an injustice to try and categorise the music here). Basically, the music serves as an eerie and often spacey ambience for the texts themselves.
    The end result is impressive to say the least. Ok, this isn’t an album that you would use as a background sound, but then again, the people who would buy it wouldn’t have any such intention to begin with.
    It’s an album to listen carefully to and travel back with it. Or, it’s an album to give to a good friend.
    A must for serious music lovers and a must for those who can appreciate stories from the deep past that seem unreal and yet have indeed happened.

    Hasan and his sect who had a motto as intriguing as :”nothing is true and everything is permitted”.
    …Great work.
