Bloom was the second drummer, although technically the first official drummer of post-hardcore band From First to Last. He was featured in every release by the band, up until their indefinite hiatus, which was announced on July 28, 2010. Lead vocalist Matt Good release this statement about the hiatus:

Bloom formed grindcore band The Color of Violence with future members of From First to Last, including current guitarist and vocalist Matt Good, as well as former bassist Joe Antillion and former guitarist Travis Richter, as well as Richter's friend Chad Crews on guitar. The band started out full-time from 2002 to 2003, but the all of the members, except for Crews, decided to focus on the now-defunct From First to Last. But in 2006, Richter and Bloom decided to remake the project as a two-man duo, with Richter. The two released their debut full-length album, Youthanize, on April 7, 2009. The band said that "[Youthanize] may not be groundbreaking, and it may not sell any copies, but we tried to be ourselves and experiment, and we're all really happy with the way it turned out, so fuck it." The album did not chart on any of Billboard's music charts.
