This three person visual-kei group was formed in February of 2002. When talking about Blood’s history, it can be divided into three sections. The first section is from when the band was formed and two members joined.

The second period consists of the group releasing a mini album, and doing lives, including one in the United States.

But a year later, the two members that joined in 2002 left and a new vocalist was introduced. And this core group now makes up Blood, still playing today doing lives and collaboration lives with other bands. The band did a world tour which included Europe, Mexico, and the United States.

BLOOD now no longer associates themselves with visual kei. As of April 2007, they started a new concept called "Symphony of Chaos". This new concept centers around the Goth/industrial scene, featuring darker-sounding songs, new wardrobes, and more remixes of their music by other Goth/industrial artists such as Virgins O.R. Pigeons (Greece), GPKISM (Australia), Blue Birds Refuse to Fly (Greece), and Spectrum-X (Italy). The first release under this concept was the "Dead-Hearted" EP on September 15, 2007.

On May 7, 2008 they will release their fifth album and the second under this concept titled "The Reaper Behind Me", a double album featuring new remixes of their songs and the addition of live guest musician Ryo on keyboard.

They will also be headlining Alamode Night in Tokyo on April 13, 2008 and conduct a tour of Australia June 7-9, 2008, both with label-mate GPKISM. This will be the first time a "visual" band from Japan will play in Australia.

On March 17, 2008 BLOOD once again became a four-member band, the first time since their second period. They officially welcomed Ryo, who had been performing with them as a live guest membet, as their new manipulator, or keyboardist.
