BLOOD OF THE SUN was formed in 2002 by Vasquez on drums and Dave Gryder (STORM AT SUNRISE) on keyboards.
BLOOD OF THE SUN‘s goal from the beginning has been to carry on the tradition of the classic rock style of the Seventies, with contributions from highly respected icons Derek St. Holmes from TED NUGENT and John ‘O Daniel and Rusty Burns from POINT BLANK.
In 2004, the band released its self-titled debut on the independent Brain Ticket label. The group’s initial lineup included LAS CRUCIS singer Mark Zamarron, SUB OSLO bassist Miguel Veliz, as well as ARCHIE BUNKER guitarists Jay Benfield and Rich Christopher.
For their 2007 sophomore release, “In Blood We Rock”, Richard Hurley and Ty Thompkins handled guitars while Vasquez took over on vocals.
In 2008, “Death Ride” was released, with Derek St. Holmes on vocals as well as Erik Schmidt from REO SPEEDEALER and Mike Doty from THE HOUSE HARKONNEN on guitars.
In addition to touring the States, BLOOD OF THE SUN played Europe extensively in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
