  1. If you liked Superstition, you should check out Hide and Seek! Their best album, in my humble( or not-so-humble) opinion.

    Kinda sounds like the lead singer of evanescence but better,way more grown up,and darker but I don’t usually like this type of music but definitely will jump on this when I try.

    • Her name is Chibi (yes, really) if you are curious. I like Amy Lee’s voice (lead of Evanescence) quite a bit but she has a deeper huskier tone and somewhat limited range. Chibi on the other hand can really pull off anything from high notes, to sing-song tonality and even whisper singing pretty well. Both very talented women though.

  3. I was really surprised to see Birthday Massacre up here until you mentioned it was a patreon request. I love this band and your brief analysis pretty much highlights why – so many of their songs really do have a nearly hypnotic quality to them. Some of my friends initially dismissed them due to their physical look (which, lets face it, is pretty similar to almost any emo band) but all were won over when I had them listen to their albums.

  4. I don’t think you could have sold this band any better than you did. Awesome review.

  5. Finally. It’s nice to see the band reviewed and appreciated.

    I’d also suggest checking out their cover of The Neverending Story theme. Pretty sure you can find it on Youtube. I think a few of the band members are nicknamed after Neverending Story characters (e.g. Falcore).
