Michael Carter This is an amazing piece of music,I am familiar with Arvo Part,and Wallk through Fire live and breathe in their interpretation.The spaces between,it's solemnity only enhances and amplifies the guitar sound,virtually instrumental,except near the end.I think this is essential!

(Translated to English from Old Church Slavonic language) "Think, my soul, of the bitter hour of death and the judgement day of thy God and Creator. For terrible angels will seize thee, my soul, and will lead thee into the eternal fire. And so, before thy death, repent and cry: O Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner."

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."

Walk Through Fire Gothenburg, Sweden

Since 2007 WALK THROUGH FIRE have uncompromisingly expanded the boundaries of the doom/sludge metal genre. Their music uniquely blends the heavy, down-tuned and oppressive soundscapes of doom/sludge metal with the avantgarde of contemporary and classical music.
