The Birthday Massacre (abbreviated TBM) is a gothic dark wave band formed in 1999 in London, Ontario, and is currently based in Toronto. The current lineup consists of Chibi (vocals), Falcore (guitars), Owen (synthesizers), Nate Manor (bass) and Rhim (drums). When the band formed in 1999, they were known as Imagica. In 2002, they changed the name to The Birthday Massacre after one of their earlier songs to avoid confusion with another group.
