Walk Through Fire performing the music of Arvo Pärt live at GEIGER X, Gothenburg, October 7 2016:
"Walk Through Fire is often described as a doom/sludge metal band with their extremely slow rhythms - sometimes down at almost 20 bpm - and lyrical themes dealing mainly with hopelessness and anxiety. Although, doom/sludge metal is somewhat of a misnomer, as their compositions are also heavily influenced by contemporary classical music as well as black metal and drone music.
Arvo Pärt is a composer of contemporary classical music. The tonality and systematic structure of his compositions have many parables with those of Walk Through Fire's: from the late 1950's banned Schoenberg 12-tone technique compositions to his own minimalist style ”tintinnabuli” and sacred music.
What initially started out as a study to learn and to evolve their own way of composing music ended up as Walk Through Fire's biggest undertaking as of yet: playing a full set with the music of Arvo Pärt. Note by note."
