Balzac se formó en Osaka, Japón en 1992 por Hirosuke Nishiyama, quien es el único miembro original de la banda. Actualmente la banda está compuesta por Hirosuke Nishiyama (voz), Atushi Nakagawa (Guitarra/Coros), Akio Imai (Bajo/Coros) y Takayuki Manabe (Batería/Efectos Digitales/Coros).
Antes de formar Balzac, Hirosuke fue parte de de otra banda llamada Astrozombies, la cual estaba fuertemente influenciada por los legendarios rockeros japoneses, Gastunk. Luego de que la banda sacara su único demo, Hirosuke disuelve la banda y se dedica a su nuevo proyecto, Balzac, el que en 1992 lanza su primer demo en cassette llamado "Scapegoat 666" del cual se editaron solo 13 copias.
A partir de este momento, Balzac sufre una serie de modificaciones de sus miembros originales y editan varios albumes y demos, convirtiéndose en una de las bandas de Horror Punk más reconocidas de Japón.
En el año 2000, Balzac telonea a Misfits en su tour por Japón, durante el cual la banda llama la atención del legendario bajista Jerry Only quien más tarde se interesaría en ellos para ser parte de su recientemente fundado sello musical, Misfits Records, lo que les abriría las puertas de USA.
A la fecha, Balzac ha editado 11 albumes y un sin fin de singles, recopilaciones, DVD's y bookset, además ha logrado comercializar una serie de figuras y artículos de colección, así como también una marca de ropa.
Balzac, a pesar de su enorme influencia por parte de la gran banda de Horror Punk, Misfits, especialmente en su estética, ha logrado cultivar un sonido propio y original, mezclando distintas variantes del punk con un sonido electrónico, muy similar al Digital Hardcore (no todas las canciones) que los caracteriza, además de que sus canciones poseen letras crudas y muchas veces solo entendibles por Hirosuke; todo esto mezclado un sonido característico de las bandas de rock japonés, junto con el particular idioma, además de los video muy bien logrados, cargados con gore, películas de terror y mucha fuerza. Todas estas características convierten a Balzac en una de las grandes bandas de Horror Punk de los últimos tiempos.
