Bloodlust was one of several lesser-known speed/thrash bands of the eighties, and, like many LA-based bands of the time, got their start with Metal Blade (though they didn't appear on a Metal Massacre compilation like most of their peers). Vocalist Steve Gaines got his start here, singing for the band in its early days before jumping ship to Abattoir and later returning for their final recording, the Terminal Velocity EP. They were done by the late eighties, but did reform some time later, playing live in 2005.
