Blood Stain Child

Blood Stain Child is a Japanese melodic death metal band with trance elements from the city of Osaka, Japan. The band formed under the name “Visionquest” in 1999, but reformed under the name Blood Stain Child in 2000. In 2001, Blood Stain Child recorded two songs, “The World” and “Steel Flame”. The first song was used as the theme song for professional wrestler, Kensuke Sasaki and the second song was used as the theme song for the 30th anniversary of NJPW, a professional wrestling group. In October of 2002, the band was the supporting act for Dream Evil during their tour in Japan.

A notable feature of the band is their tendency to incorporate both dance and trance related themes and elements into their music. The band’s sound includes death vocals complemented at times by clean vocals and their overall musical style is best classified as a mix between In Flames, Children of Bodom, and Soilwork. The band cites influences such as In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, HIM, X Japan, and Luna Sea.
