Industrial group Army Of The Universe has released a music video for “Until The End”. The song features guest vocals from Chibi of The Birthday Massacre. The video is a smorgasbord of heavily stylized scenes, almost all of which are filmed in slow motion. As the video progresses, the video begins to warp and shift, as though it is undulating underwater. It’s well worth giving a view below. READ MORE

The Birthday Massacre is that band that fits well into so many different situations. Whether it be wanting to jump up and dance around your room or laying back on your couch staring out the window on a rainy day, their music seems to encompass all those emotions and then some. They’re a band that I know I can fall back on and enjoy thoroughly. But does their latest album Hide And Seek offer me the same? Find out below! READ MORE
Electronic rockers The Birthday Massacre have released “Down”, a new song from their upcoming album Hide And Seek, which comes out Oct. 9th via Metropolis Records (pre-order here). You can hear the track below as well as read the lyrics.
Vocalist Chibi states, “There is an intensity to this record that I definitely felt while we were writing and recording. At times, for me, it was a struggle. I had some very strong emotions during the time we worked on this, and it shows, I think, in my vocals – and I really love how it turned out. The lyrics also touch on some darker themes. There’s a lot of very moving stuff on this record. Very intense stuff.”
Synthrock band The Birthday Massacre have announced that they will be embarking on a N. American tour this fall in support of their upcoming album Hide And Seek, which comes out Oct. 9th via Metropolis Records (pre-order here). The tour will see support coming from William Control and Aesthetic Perfection. Check below for tour dates as well as the cover art and track list for Hide And Seek.
Talking about Hide And Seek, vocalist Chibi states, “There is an intensity to this record that I definitely felt while we were writing and recording. At times, for me, it was a struggle. I had some very strong emotions during the time we worked on this, and it shows, I think, in my vocals – and I really love how it turned out. The lyrics also touch on some darker themes. There’s a lot of very moving stuff on this record. Very intense stuff.”
Guitarist Rainbow adds, “There was an underlying sense of tension and urgency throughout the writing process. It was a tumultuous and emotional experience for us but, I think it’s yielded some of our best work.”
Bloody-Disgusting is excited to bring you the exclusive album artwork premiere for Naught, the upcoming album from Stolen Babies! The artwork is deceptive, to say the least. At first glance, it seems very innocent and happy, showing a dark pink sheep in the middle of a “Who Framed Roger Rabbit Toon Town”-esque setting. But at closer inspection, things become more stranger, creating a sense of unease. The colors, while bright, have a dark tinge. The houses, seemingly happy, have a worried tilt to their eyes. And the sky, while blue and beautiful, has scratches and mars. Yup, something seems very strange in this image. You can check out the full artwork below.
The follow-up to 2006′s There Be Squabbles Ahead, Naught has a fall release date via No Comment Records.
Stolen Babies will be on the Epic Kings & Idols Tour with Devin Townsend, Katatonia, and Paradise Lost. Tour dates and artwork can be found below. READ MORE
Electro-goth band The Birthday Massacre will be releasing Hide And Seek, their fifth studio album, on Oct. 9th through Metropolis Records. According to the official pre-order site, the album opens with rain and closes with the sound of waves while the songs themselves are about “lost girls, lost love, lost time”. The album is the follow-up to 2010′s Pins And Needles (review). The full track list is below.
Seriously, did you really think we’d leave out Chibi’s Top 10 list? No way! I saved this one for last because her list features some of my absolute favorites, such as Session 9 (what a brilliant movie!). However, I post this list and heave a sigh of sadness for this is the last entry in our week of The Birthday Massacre Top 10 Lists. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Rainbow, Rhim, Nate Manor, Owen, Falcore, and Chibi for putting together these amazing lists! You all rock!
It’s been one awesome week, what with all these great Top 10 lists from The Birthday Massacre!

Today brings us yet another awesome Top 10 list, this one from lead guitarist and synth/drum programmer Falcore and features some of my own personal favorites! Check it out after the jump!
Today brings the second-to-last Top 10 list from The Birthday Massacre. After the jump, you can find Owen’s Top 10 favorite horror movies as well as a little explanation for each choice. Personally, I find his reasoning for The Thing to be quite hilarious (and 100% accurate).

I’m a big fan of The Birthday Massacre, just getting that out there. With their shameless use of synths, infectious songs and, pardon my chauvinism, a smoking hot singer, what is there to dislike about this band? Well, they have an EP about to come out called Imaginary Monsters (review here) and to hype up the release, BD Music is thrilled to announce not one, not two but five days of The Birthday Massacre Top 10 lists! Check back each day for a different member’s list!
Twitch the Ripper have been making waves lately in the electronic world, doing several dates with The Birthday Massacre as well as an upcoming show with Combichrist.

Is the album worth picking up? Is their music as good as their taste in horror? Find out after the jump!
Undoubtedly one of the most visually stunning and musically exciting bands to grace the scene in a long time, THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE have unleashed the video for the first single “In The Dark” from their upcoming album Pins And Needles (release date: September 14, 2010 via Metropolis Records). Independently produced, directed, filmed and everything else needed to bring their unique, singular vision to the screen by the band, members of Rue Morgue, and their friends, the epically arresting video premiered at Rue Morgue’s Festival of Fear that took place last weekend in Toronto.
