BLOOD started out in 2002 as an Osaka based visual kei/gothic band composed of musicians with a producer's aim, pursuing their own music and world view. The band was originally formed by Kiwamu (guitarist, song writer, band leader) and Kaede (bassist). Their member line-up previously consisted of 3 periods. It was assumed that at the end of BLOOD's final tour in 2009 under the name "La Fin de la Journee", that BLOOD was officially over.
But as announced by Kiwamu on January 14th 2011, a 4th period was added. The new members were Hayato (vocals), Azami (Bass), & Dora (Drums). They were later joined by Kazuha (guitarist). BLOOD's "La Fin de la Journee" tour featured their most active and most popular period with their vocalist Fu-ki, who joined the band in 2004.
It was said that Fu-ki left the band to pursue a metal band, but recently Kiwamu has stated on his Facebook that both Fu-ki and Kaede (who did not appear during the final tour) have retired from the music scene. Kiwamu not only handles song writing, programming, and guitar, but the artwork as well. Kaede contributed by playing bass/synth-bass, writing lyrics and also contributed in the visual aspects of the band. When Fu-ki joined the band he wrote the majority of the lyrics and often worked with Kiwamu to write the music as well.Make Blood Playlist
