AllMusic Review by

On their sixth album, Superstition, Canadian synth rockers the Birthday Massacre continue to mine elements of new wave, darkwave, goth, and metal, delving deeper into the fantasy world they've been fostering since their 2002 debut. Alternating between warmly anthemic ("Diaries") and menacing ("Destroyer"), singer Chibi carries the music, breathily dipping and diving as the band's wall of sound looms behind her. Accepting both input and financial backing from their fans, Superstition is a result of the Birthday Massacre's first foray into crowdfunding, and creatively it sees them tipping further into a heavy, pop-oriented sound.
