Temple of Blood is an American Christian metal band. Musically, they are influenced by the thrash metal music of bands like Annihilator and Megadeth and the traditional heavy metal music by bands such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.

They released their first album Prepare for the Judgement of Mankind in 2005 which was received with much critical acclaim.[1] The final track on the debut album is a cover of the Deadly Blessing song "Deliver Us From Evil". The song features a special guest, Ski, who himself was the singer for Deadly Blessing and has formed his own band called Faith Factor. Ski was also one of the candidates to replace the departed Rob Halford in Judas Priest when he left the band in 1993.[2]

The band released their second album Overlord in the spring of 2008. The album contains a cover version of the song "Forbidden Evil", by the Bay Area thrash band Forbidden.
