Hashisheen The End of Law

Bill Laswell (born February 12, 1955 in Salem, Illinois and raised in Albion, Michigan) is an American bassist, producer and record label owner. Laswell's music draws upon many different genres, most notably funk, various world music, jazz, dub and ambient styles. He has also played or produced music from the noisier, more aggressive end of the rock spectrum, like hardcore punk and metal.Laswell’s pet concept is 'collision music' which involves bringing together musicians from wildly divergent but complementary spheres and seeing what comes out.The credo of one record label run by Laswell, and which typifies much of his work, is “Nothing Is True, Everything Is Permitted”. Though projects arranged by Laswell may be credited under the same name and often feature the same roster of musicians, the styles and themes explored on different albums can vary dramatically: Material began as a noisy dance music project, but subsequent releases have been centered around hip hop, jazz, or backing spoken word readings by beat generation icon William S. Burroughs.

‘Hashisheen – The End of Law’ is Bill Laswell’s epic 2-year project to lay down a soundtrack to the ancient and mystic story of Hasan Bin Sabbah, Alamut the "Garden of Earthly Delights" and the rites of the Hashisheens (also called the "Assassins"). Gathering together collaborations from the likes of William S. Burroughs, Techno Animal, Jah Wobble, Paul Schutze, Genesis P. Orridge, Iggy Pop, Helios Creed and many more he pieces together some kind of proto-trip hop doom ambient nightmare.
