Bal-Sagoth are an extreme metal band from Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, combining elements of black metal, symphonic, and classical music. Vocalist/lyricist Byron Roberts, who came up with the idea for the band around 1989, took the name 'Bal-Sagoth' from a Robert E. Howard short story "The Gods of Bal-Sagoth". Their first demo was released in 1993; they have since released three albums on Cacophonous and three on Nuclear Blast.

This is an audio recording of a Bal-Sagoth rehearsal from January 1994. It features early prototype versions of certain songs which we later revised before recording our debut album in June 1994. Behold this ancient artefact from the Bal-Sagoth archival vault!

By the Blaze of the Fire Jewels
Thus Spake the Silent Halls of Valusia
