Balzac is a Japanese hardcore-punk band which was formed in 1992. The band consist of Hirosuke on vocals, Tetsuya on guitars, Anti on bass and Naoki on drums. Balzac released their first demo tape titled Scapegoat 666 in 1993. The demo tape included a cover song of The Misfit’s titled, Where Eagles Dare. Tetsuya and Naoki left the band and was replaced with Atsushi and Kohji when they recorded and released the second demo tape in the same year titled Descent Of The Diabolos.

By 1997, the line-up consisted of Hirosuke remained on vocals, Atsushi on guitars and Akio as the new bassist. Without a replacement drummer, the band released an album titled Deep - Teenagers from Outer Space and quickly found Kill to replace Naoki on drums soon after the album was released. They released recorded and released 13 Stairway - The Children Of The Night in 1998, Zennou-Naru Musuu-No Me Ha Shi Wo Yubi Sasu in 2000 and Terrifying - Art Of Dying/The Last Men On Earth II in 2002 before Kill left Balzac and in the same year, they released a split single with The Misfits. Takayuki replaced Kill as Balzac’s new drummer in late 2002.

Balzac went on to release a few more albums such as Beyond The Darkness in 2003, Came Out Of The Grave in 2004, Dark-Ism and Out Of The Grave And Into The Dark in 2005, and Deep Blue: Chaos from Darkism II in 2006. They will be releasing Paranoid Dream of the Zodiac this year.
