Before they took on the name, “The Birthday Massacre,” they were known as “Imagica.” Like many artists, they began by recording their own music and sending around demos hoping to be picked up by a label. I came across that very demo at this website: http://www.zamolxisdesign.com/thebirthdaymassacre/
The link directly to the music is here.
It’s kind of a trip to hear if you’re a fan. Particularly for me, it was the early versions of Over, The Birthday Massacre (later titled Happy Birthday), and Under the Stairs. Perhaps more of these are new to some of you. Enjoy!
