BLOODLUST is a legendary US Speed / Heavy Metal band, formed in 1983 in Los Angeles. The band was active between 1983 and 1988, and established their position in the underground by sharing the stage with acts such as MEGADETH, SAVATAGE or FLOTSAM AND JETSAM. Their debut LP entitled “Guilty As Sin” came out in 1986 on Metal Blade Records, and two years later the band released the “Terminal Velocity” EP. The band recently returned, and plays occasional live shows. Past and current BLOODLUST members also played in acts such as ABATTOIR, RUTHLESS and BITCH.
Skol Records will issue limited expanded CD editions of band’s two original releases, re-mastered from best existing sources by Bart Gabriel (HEXX, MILITIA, CIRITH UNGOL), incl. bonus tracks, and with thick booklets with tons of previously unseen photos, lyrics, and liner notes written by members of MEGADETH, DARK ANGEL, BITCH and BODY COUNT. “Guilty As Sin” reissue will include 3 bonus tracks taken from the “Anti-Life” demo from 1987, and the “Terminal Velocity” EP has been extended to the size of a full length album, as it will include 5 previously unreleased extra tracks – 3 from 1987, and 2 recorded in 2005. The reissues will be available on August 20, 2021. Limited edition vinyl versions of both albums will be released by Lost Realm Records.
“Great news to hear anything new about Bloodlust. I play them on GimmeMetal.com on The Dave Mustaine Show all the time, and I’m sure this is going to DESTROY!” – (Dave Mustaine / MEGADETH)
“So cool to see the Bloodlust boys back in action! They were good friends and played shows with us in our early Megadeth days, including the night we signed to Capitol Records at The Country Club in Los Angeles (1986). Many years, many stories later… Can’t wait for new release!” (David Ellefson / MEGADETH)
