From their official website:
BA'AL – five guys kickin’ asses heavy as fuck. Heavy driving hardcore and diabolic melodies meet vocals out of the deepest depths of hell. If you can imagine SEPULTURA (in times of “Arise“ or “Chaos A.D.“) fucking with bands like BOLT THROWER, EIGHTEEN VISIONS and IN FLAMES, BA'AL would be the product…only with a better hair style.
BA'AL started out in the beginning of 2002 in Erfurt/Germany with only one aim: hitting your balls. And that’s what our music is all about. A good thrashing from the first to the last second but no dull e-chord moshing at all.
After the promising self-released CDep “The Babel Concept” (March 2003) - which received many praises in the metal and hardcore press - our first full-length release “The Lilith Complex” (July 2004) on CIRCULATION RECORDS was the consequential advancement of the BA'AL style - mixing 90th heavy metal riffing and catchy melodies with ultra heavy modern grooves.
Many people ask where the name BA'AL comes from. BAAL was the first book written by Bertolt Brecht and it’s purism initially inspired us to use that name as our bandname. Further-more the figure of BA'AL in mythology and history was the icing on the cake that made the choice of that band name perfect.
3)Formed in Sheffield in 2016, blackened post metal quintet Ba'al have built a reputation for intense live experiences in their hometown and a number of festivals across the north.
Founded by Steff (Vocals) and Nick (Guitar), Ba'al shuffled their lineup a number of times before settling on James (Drums), Richard (Bass) and Tom (Guitar) to complete the current incarnation which has seen them perform at a number of high profile events alongside current up-and-comers Conjurer, Calligram and Hundred Year Old Man as well as established Post-Metal front runners, Downfall of Gaia.
