Hashisheen: The End Of Law

The other night I watched a documentary (named 'Holy Warriors'...) on the Saladin/ Richard I conflict for the control of Jerusalem and the 'Holy Lands' territories. You know how the mind travels, one thing led to another and I ended up listening to this one which I decided to share. Seems a fitting couple to 'The Fire This Time'.

A Sub Rosa soundwork, focusing on the (Persian) Ismaelian sect of the Hashisheen, known to many as Assassins, and their most famous leader Hassan-i Sabbah. More info later on...

All text compiled by Peter Lamborn Wilson, soundtrack compiled by Bill Laswell, as usual with participations of narrators and artists too numerous to mention (check the info link).
