There are two groups/artists named Balm.
1. German group.
2. A Canadian shoegaze band from the mid 90's.
2. Balm was formed in Burlington Ontario Canada in 1995. Formed by members Charlie Moniz , Paul Sveda and Mike Baker. The three released their only major release the 8 track ep album "Shoegazer" on Sonic Unyon records in 1996. Shortly after that following a short hiatus during which time Mike moved away to university and Paul was replaced by Hamilton native Brad Isaacs, the group renamed themselves Toshiro and played two final shows (one in support of the CD release of Burlington-based electronic duo Oprph-Onic) before calling it quits in late 1997/early 1998.
