The Birthday Massacre
The Birthday Massacre
The Birthday Massacre is from Toronto, Canada. Combining their interests in various musical and artistic styles, the band has successfully accumulated an impressive international fan base, press accolades, and defied categorization with their unique sound and visuals.

The band was formed in 1999 and independently produced and recorded their first two albums, Nothing and Nowhere and Violet. Through both of these high-demand releases, as well as their highly acclaimed and beautifully atmospheric website, the band obtained a large and loyal fan base throughout the world. Due to their independent success, in 2005 they were approached by European record label Repo Records (followed shortly by Metropolis Records in North America) and the band began its steady climb to reaching a much wider audience with the 2007 release of the acclaimed and wildly popular Walking With Strangers.

In the last few years, the band has been performing internationally, traveling extensively across Canada, the United States, Mexico, Australia, the U.K. and Europe. They have become renowned for their high-energy live performances, drawing large, mixed crowds through their appeal to fans of a surprisingly wide range of genres. Equally comfortable playing intimate venues as they are on a festival stage, the band's highly-praised performances will continue into the next year as they continue touring.

Their fourth full length album "Pins And Needles" will be released on September 14th and will be accompanied with a release tour from Sept. 8-15th.

Currently, the band is preparing for shows in the U.S.A and Toronto for the Cd release tour... and they will also be returning to the U.K. in October....AND the USA again in November.
Army Of The Universe
Army Of The Universe
Sometime around the winter of 2008, on a dark stormy night in the gray city of Milan, Army of the Universe are born. From the mind and synthesizers of Techno/Trance producer Albert Vorne (aka Trebla) and from the powerful voice of Lord K (Lead singer of Kult of the Skull God).
The band today finalised by the distorted, weeping and power-driven guitars of Davil
AOU's takes inspiration from the experiments of the 80's electro-rock, fuelled with the futuristic re-interpratations of rocking 6 strings on top of twisted electronic landscapes and the collisons of sound of the end of the millennia.
The sound lays upon anaolg synths in a fusion with blade-like guitars, speeding around echoes of 80's metal, flirting with backgrounds of British school electronica, new wave and techno beats.
AOU joined our galaxyon a mission to explore the frontiers of post-rock and post-electronica

Cutting edge music born for the dance floor melts with epic power rock and blinks an eye to the warm feeling of live interpretations, a postmodern experience that completes the fusion of the two worlds
- Mother Ignorance - LP -
