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”.

    Não me importo muito sobre virem ao Brasil ou não. Eu sou egoísta mesmo! Eu gostaria de ir a pelo menos um show, mas sei que não vou poder ir. Aí nego buzina: "ah, mas só pq vc não vai você pensa assim!" ué, dane-se, quem vai não pensa em mim, por exemplo, e só pensam que sou ridícula falando isso pq vão. Sou uma humana falha e sinto inveja mesmo.

    One of very very few bands that almost all songs i like if not love. And every new song is like "wow thats fuckin genius", with that perfect feeling you're listening something perfectly symbiotic with your soul.

    As someone who absolutely loves the birthday massacre I strongly urge fans to check out Madness Domain http://www.last.fm/music/Madness+Domain . I stumbled upon them by accident and was really captivated by how similar in both vocals and guitar work they are to TBM, you can tell they are in fact TBM fans themselves and they succeed so well in both capturing the feeling of TBM while still bringing their own sounds to the table. It's not just in sound, they also are able to put soul into their music that brings it to life much in the same way TBM is always able inject their soul into all of their music. Which can only lead me to wonder how great these guys will be as they perfect and grow as artists.
