The Info List - Blood For Blood

--- Advertisement ---

Blood for Blood is an American hardcore punk band from Boston, Massachusetts, United States. It was formed in 1994 by Erick "Buddha" Medina & Rob Lind, drawing inspiration from the hardcore scene in Boston and New York. In 1997 they were signed to Victory Records. The band describes their sound as influenced by Sheer Terror, Breakdown, Carnivore, and Killing Time.

After their 2004 album the band went on a hiatus till 2010. Guitarist and song writer Rob Lind decided touring with the band was a bad idea due to him focusing on his sobriety. He was a heroin addict and an alcoholic for many years and thought going back to the band would be cause for him to relapse. Instead, for the sake of touring, the band called upon NYHC vet Billy Graziadei from the legendary Biohazard to fill-in guitar duties in Rob's absence. In 2011 the band spoke of Rob's return for another full length album. But in June of 2012, vocalist Erick Medina was kicked out of the band due to sex crime allegations. [1][2] As Rob went on to make new music for his side project Ramallah. Blood for Blood seem to have been abandoned completely. But in 2016 Rob (being the soul song writer of all Blood for Blood albums since Revenge on Society.) Decided to start doing Blood for Blood songs while on stage as Ramallsh.
