Default How and when did you first hear of The Birthday Massacre?

I remember visiting some random person's MySpace and hearing this incredibly beautiful music playing in the background. I just had to know who the artist was and hear more of their music. I could not tell much from looking at the music playlist so I sent him a message. He responded enthusiastically, telling me about The Birthday Massacre and how I could hear more of their music and find out more about them . The song I first heard is the instrumental that currently plays in the background at Nothing and Nowhere. This was in January 2007 and I have been a fan ever since.

October 2002

I had recently joined the Deadsy message board. In the "What are you listening to" thread several people were listing TBM. I was intrigued by the band's name and found out that I could hear their entire EP for free on MP3.com. So, I went to check it out and fell in love instantly.

I too found them on the Deadsy board. It was early summer of 2002, found a link to them and listened to 'Over' and pretty much fell in love with it

Wow, 2002. To think I was missing out on this great band for so many years.

I don't quite remember what year it was, but it was probably around 2001 or 2002 and my boyfriend was harping on about some band named Imagica that he thought I'd like, so one day he sat me down with his mp3 player and I was hooked. good times

2004, randomly clicked on someone's sig on another forum to nan.com. I thought the website looked really awesome and I had the background music playing for hours.

I'm a big fan of theSTART, who toured with them last summer. I saw them two nights in a row (in Miami and St.Petersburg) and fell in love with them. I'm a sucker for bands who put on great live shows.

Ach, 'Twas some goth forum that had a link to the TBM-website... the year was 2005.

Back then one could load "Nothing and Nowhere"-demo free from Violetprison (lol, I still have the MP3s)... Long story short: I got hooked on the N&N-demo, and the rest is history...

I heard song "Holiday" in last.fm Goth Tag Radio. I thought it was very good and started searching more The Birthday Massacre's songs. I fell in love with them and then I bought Violet and Nothing & Nowhere CDs. It was last summer.

I'm sorry for my bad English

Yes, your English is fine toxictear. I understand you perfectly.

I am envious of everyone who has been listening to TBM from or near the beginning. I wish someone would have clued me in earlier!

I was at the mall, and went into Hot Topic, and they had Violet playing at one of their listening stations. I put the headphones on, and I was instantly hooked.

I've been listening to them for awhile and deff. miss their old web sites, but even when I found them, they still had been around for a while (Imagica days)... and I missed the original release of Nothing and Nowhere. I started listening to them after the N&N release and LONG before the Violet release. Yet-- like you I also wish I knew of them sooner.
