The Burning Blood was a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter and a Successor Chapter of the Blood Angels, created during an unknown Founding and wholly destroyed during the Devastation of Baal in ca. 999.M41.

Created as they were from the Blood Angels' gene-seed, its Battle-Brothers carried the genetic Flaw inherited from Sanguinius, which made them susceptible to the afflictions known as the Black Rage and the Red Thirst.

When a Battle-Brother fell to the throes of the Black Rage he was placed within the ranks of the Death Company.
