"The night is short. It weighs heavy, but the light always awaits us." Diamonds, the new album by The Birthday Massacre, is another exciting series of dark and light moments from heartbreak, to anguish and from lust to love. As with many of The Birthday Massacre albums, This one contains an exploration of darkness as well as light, poison as well as its antidote. Within the songwriting, one can sense the passing of time, and the conflicts and resolutions that we can all feel inside of ourselves. Nights end, and days resolve. If we look inside ourselves, we can find these precious emotions and conflicts. Every single one of them is valuable. Like the diamonds in the dark. And thus, we have "Diamonds" by the Birthday Massacre. The distinctive soaring synths and guitars, paired with our Chibi's beautiful familiar and reassuring voice, guides us all into the darkness as well as the light - guides us to mourn and to look inside, but also take our hand and invite us to dance, and remember - the night is short. It weighs heavy, but the light always awaits us.
