Music - The Birthday Massacre

The Birthday Massacre
Listening to Pandora has introduced me to some great bands. One of my new favorites is The Birthday Massacre out of Toronto, Canada. Unfortunately, the band name dredges up thoughts of Charles Manson-like serial killers and bloody backyard balloon parties. They are a little gothy, but the band’s music has nothing to do with those things. It’s just witty and interesting alternative music with a great sense of melody and instrumentation. Lead vocalist Chibi has a sharp voice that cuts like a knife and is perfect for the band’s sound. There is nothing else like it out there. I have several of their CDs and love them all, but I would suggest starting with Pins and Needles. You can listen to the entire album here. The Birthday Massacre is a dynamic band with a vibrant, unique sound.
