The group originated in London, Ontario under the name Imagica, inspired from the novel “Imajica” by Clive Barker. The band’s original lineup consisted of: Chibi, Rainbow, Michael Falcore, and Aslan (bass). Dank played live keyboards and O.E. joined the group on live drums. A seven-song limited edition demo was released.

In 2001, Dank left the group, and the others relocated from London to Toronto, Ontario, to begin recording. There, they recorded another limited edition demo, this time with five songs. In 2002, the band adopted the name The Birthday Massacre in order to avoid confusion with a metal band. They chose the name “The Birthday Massacre” since people were already familiar with the song of the same title. The song was later retitled as “Happy Birthday”.
