Biography

Toronto, Ontario, Canada (1999 – present)

The Birthday Massacre is a band formed in 1999 and based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. From 1999 until 2002, the band name was Imagica. The current lineup consists of Chibi (vocals), Rainbow (guitars and programming), Michael Falcore (guitars), Owen (keyboards), Nate Manor (bass), and Rhim (drums). Their sound is mostly a fusion of , , , and .

So far, TBM released five studio albums: Nothing and Nowhere (2002), Violet (2005), Walking With Strangers (2007), Pins and Needles (2010), and Hide and Seek (2012). They also issued the DVD Blue (2005), the live album/DVD Show and Tell (2009), and the EPs Violet (2004), Looking Glass (2008), and Imaginary Monsters (2011).

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”.

    И всё же нет в похожих исполнителях ничего подобного.Не встретишь ныне аналога TBM.У них и звучание иное,такое родное. Добрые люди,кто-нибудь видел удачный кавер(желательно акустику).

    @Kingsforlife: Add also these two Norwegian bands: Apoptygma Berzerk (the albums APBL2000 and Rocket Science have the most similar sound to TBM) and Theatre of Tragedy (especially the albums Assembly, Musique, and Aegis). I highly recommend you to listen the live album APBL2000 first (plus it was released on Metropolis Records).
