Balch helped with the band’s first album entitled “The Initial Command.” It was released on the Belgian record label KK during the year 1987. The album was made on a very tight budget. One of the main issues was the type of eight track cassette would be used.
Balch became an official member of FLA during the year 1988. He then wrote songs during the next couple albums. His contribution was mostly keyboards/programming. This resulted in “Corrosion” as well as “Disorder.” Balch helped to work on a few other albums before he left the band.
