Bál is a single-man band from Hungary, formed by Bálint Rósz in 2017. "I joined the gloom and torn in two pieces, what it was the beginning of something new, the beginning of Bál. I admit, I still don’t really know what is or who exactly is called Bál, but I know the main inspiration for him is the human fallibility and the imprint of what is caused by us, failures. I needed something or someone who could help me process all the pain that has consumed me from the inside, so I grabbed my guitar and helped myself." The beginning of this atmospheric/post-black metal project Bál, as Bálint puts down without beating about the bush, proved to be the right decision. His six-track debut album Duna was released on 30 October 2018. This massive dose of energy and bitterness exploded despite low-quality equipment and low knowledge level regarding producing process.

Bál music will be presented on the radio show [Dark] UNKNOWN this Thursday, 22 April at 22.00 (CET) on Terra Relicta Radio.
