Blood

German grindcore band

Eisen, Taki, Geier and Radtke formed the German Grindcore act Blood in March, 1986. Originally just a band in which the members would only record and write material out of boredom, the band changed and become a full, serious unit when Ventilator joined them a year after their formation. The 'new' Blood eventually recorded and released three demos: "Heinous Noise" (1987), "Spasmo Paralytic Dreams" (1988) and "No Regret" (1988) and was able to obtain a record deal to release their debut full length, "Impulse to Destroy".

Thanks to the general success the album was able to gain, Blood released another official release, the "Recognize Yourself" EP. After some absence, "Christbait" was released in 1992, followed a year later by what is thought by many as the band's biggest success, "O Agios Pethane". The band continued increasing in fame and "Mental Conflict" (LP, 1994) and "Spittle Red of Blood" (EP, 1995) were recorded and released.

Blood was now quite popular amongst the underground fanbases, and were able to tour with various Grind/Death acts such as Fear of God, Dismember, Atrocity and Cripple Bastards. Their mixture of Grindcore and Death Metal sounded unique to many and it was evident that the band could only grow bigger.

Following nearly every release, various line-up changes but the band was able to establish and keep their latest for quite a while. "Depraved Goddess" was self-released sometime in 1996. The band's latest efforts are "Gas, Flames, Bones" (1999) and 2003's "Dysangelium".

Shortly after one of many line-up changed occured, Jer and Bill were replaced by Rick Rancid (guitar) and John Sicko (drums). The second demo, "Rotting Christ", followed in 1989 and in 1991 Gregoroth and Sicko left the band.
