History:
BLOOD was formed in February 2002 in Osaka, and has separate “periods” defined by changing concepts. During the first period Takeshi and Dai joined the band. On the 10th of February 2003 the vocalist Dai left. Blood began their second period and released the mini-album “BLOOD”. Blood performed in the USA at Fanime in 2003. On the 29th February of 2004, Taichi and Takeshi left the band.With Fu~ki, Blood began to move their music in a more deathrock/goth direction. The third period had a vampire concept. Their next series of albums would follow a vampire story much in the vein of Anne Rice’s novels, with the story penned entirely by Fu~ki and music writing handled solely by Kiwamu.In the winter of 2004, they released “Vengeance For BLOOD” and began to tour world wide, starting in Europe. Soon after, Blood was interviewed on the radio show Bad Transitions on 91.7 WIXQ FM, a college radio station based in Millersville, Pennsylvania. The show was also broadcast by internet webcast.

Since the new year they have had tours in the United States with DJ SiSen, a radio broadcast with Roger of Tainted Reality and plan to tour with GPKISM later this [2008] spring. March 16th, 2008, Ryo, whom had participated in lives with them before, joined as an official member.
