The Birthday Massacre

Fun fact about me: when I was a kid, I really wanted to be goth! We didn't have any goth music in the house, so I settled for walking around with a Halloween sound effects CD in my CD player. When I was around 14, I remembered my childhood wish and realized that, with the power of the internet, I could listen to as much goth music as I wanted! With this in mind, I went straight to the TVtropes page for gothic rock and searched the band names for something that resonated with me. When I saw The Birthday Massacre on the list, I thought it sounded like my kind of music, and I was right! TBM embody a contrast between the sweet and feminine and the horrific in a beautifully subtle way. They have literally no bad songs. Below are a few of my favourites:

I'm pretty sure the first song I listened to by them was either this one or In the Dark. I love the aesthetic of the music video.


I once saw a YouTube comment that compared this one to the plot of Death Note, and now I can't unhear it.


I listened to this song a whole bunch of times while putting together a playlist for a friend, and now it's one of my favourites.


Very different from the rest of their songs, but also very good.


I used to sing this to myself constantly (also, I'd never seen the music video before now but holy potatoes it sure is something. Content warning for kidnapping I guess).
