Feel the Misery in Walk Through Fire’s “Den Utan Botten”


Misery. Pure despondency of the abject vein. It is all-consuming, this dire feeling of inner hatred and despair; a black pitch which devours the soul and physical being as one. It is the epitome of all which is wrong with existence, this misery, something which is as inescapable as it is unrelenting, and Walk Through Fire‘s Modernist sludge nestles itself within the furthest reaches of humankind’s inner darkness. Listen to an exclusive premiere of “Den Utan Botten” below.

Much like their name, Walk Through Fire is a trial of pain — their funereal misery painted in monochrome and despair. With a dense plod and massive gait, “Den Utan Botten”‘s droning sludge metal draws from metal and Modern classical music alike, the band citing Estonian Minimalist composer Arvo Pärt as a primary influence (more on this can be read below). Though, where Pärt’s pulsing music concentrates on the holy place between notes, Walk Through Fire’s despairing ooze fills its surroundings with hatred and, well, fiery misery. This is music for the contemptful and those who feel erroneous in life. This is hatred, both inward and outward.

From the artist:

Den Utan Botten was one of those songs that more or less wrote itself. It was the first song we wrote after the Arvo Pärt project, and was heavily inspired by his music. For a long time we even referred to it as “Fratres” — as it has a similar atmosphere to it as the Arvo Pärt piece with the same name.
