drewmusic2113 It took a full four songs before I even noticed that this was instrumental, which was a wonderful surprise as that is exactly how instrumental metal should be yet somehow rarely ever is. Ominous and brooding, the pace and delivery of this album is darkly sublime, tinged with Eastern accents and a pervasive eerie atmosphere delivered with practically divine skill. You absolutely will not regret this one.

COMACOZER This is what I'm talking about. A ripper Aussie band diversifying. A Comacozer - Hashshashin show has to be on the cards for sure.

TONY ZAGORAIOS Yes!!That band has a great sense of melody and rhythm. Genius musical compositions with a variety of influences that really makes that record outstanding.So close to rock,progressive,metal, math but at the same time so far away, with their own style!! Favorite track: Levitation.

about

The Sydney trio Hashshashin blend meditative eastern sounds with drone, prog and psychedelia.

nihsahshsaH is inspired by the mystics of past and present, who fled their homes and walked out into the desert in search of something to soothe the roar of their broken minds.

The sounds bring to mind scorched desert sands, the sweet scent of hashish, and the infinite blue of the sheltering sky. 

For fans of Masada, Secret Chiefs 3, Zu, Ssahha, Naadistan and who knows what else.
