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.

Red Sun Revival - Running From The Dawn: One of the most emotional and profound gothic rock releases of 2012. Red Sun Revival's debut is beautiful and smooth, adventureous and warm, still cold in it's core. Read a review HERE. Link: Website

Saturnus - Saturn In Ascension: There is a lot going on in this album, it's a slow sinking into some of the most melancholic and grim spaces that have ever been discovered with the sole music. It's slow, melodic, yet brutal and dark, yes, very dark. Read a review HERE. Link: Website

The 69 Eyes - X: Helsinki Vampires are back! With their latest release, X, they brought us the sound of the respected Paris Kills and spiced it up with some lighter, catchier tones. X is a release that holds a real gothic touch, alongside with passionate vocals by Jyrki69 and some heavy guitars as well. Dark, atmospheric, passionate - everything a goth n roll album is supposed to be. Read a review HERE. Link: Website

Therion - Les Fleurs Du Mal: Album that consists of covers of old French chansons and pop songs in symphonic metal version in pure extravagant Therion manner. Swedish maestro Christofer Johnsson and co. showed once again an amazing talent, this time with re-arrangement of those songs. Link: Website
