Blackbird Raum's crowing achievement to date, False Weavers was recorded at all-analog Tiny Telephone Studios to showcase a major step forward in song-writing and production quality.
The LP features intricately detailed album artwork by legendary Dungeons And Dragons artist Russ Nicholson including 18 x 24 inch map of the "Known Lands In The Age Of False Weavers" with the locations of DIY organizations, venues and squats world-wide that the band has interacted with over their travels, but in the fantasy realm.
False Weavers jumps from frantic acoustic hardcore to medieval folk-metal, to blissful chaotic sound collages. Paranoid and obscure lyrics spouted in four-part harmony over washtub bass time-signature gymnastics suddenly transition to introspective folk numbers that end just as abruptly in CRASS styled minimalist shouting matches.
