November 2004 starb er an schweren Kopfverletzungen, nachdem er unter Alkoholeinfluss im Treppenhaus des von ihm und Christopherson bewohnten Hauses gestürzt war. Sein Freund und musikalischer Kollege David Tibet von Current 93 organisierte mehrere Messen zu seinem Gedenken und widmete ihm das Current-93-Album How He Loved the Moon, welches eigens für Balance komponierte Stücke enthält, sowie die Current-93-Compilation Judas as Black Moth. Außerdem bezieht sich die Aussage „I would have never buried my friends / And prayed for their souls / In reddening churches.“ im Titellied des Current-93-Albums Black Ships Ate the Sky auf Balance.
