5.0 out of 5 stars A Welcome Return For The Birthday Massacre, 3 Feb. 2008
By 
This review is from: Walking With Strangers (Audio CD)
Being a fan of The Birthday Massacre starting with the "Violet" album I was hooked by the ambient / horror / fantasy / industrial / synth-pop (yes I don't think there is one genre to describe them!).

At first I was not as taken in by "Walking With Strangers" as I was with "Violet", I suppose The Birthday Massacre have taken a slightly different approach to this album compared to previous efforts which is understandable.

However after a few sittings I realised that this is still The Birthday Massacre at heart, producing alluring & fun vocals, haunting & stunning ambient sounds, heart pumping base lines & overall amazing construction & mix of songs.

The Birthday Massacre is something you have to experience, from stumbling across their "Nothing & Nowhere" website & being instantly hooked proved to me that this was something special!

The name of the band as mentioned by above reviews can make this sound like a "kid/teen" "gothic" band (the general group at the concerts is a 13-20's but on 1st hand experience I have also seen all ages) but I feel it can be enjoyed & appreciated by anyone.

I hope The Birthday Massacre stick to the label they are on and don't get sucked up by a big major music label because I can't wait to hear what's next!
