The Visit, comprised of Raphael Weinroth-Browne (cello) and Heather Sita Black (voice), is a musical dialogue that transcends genres and idioms. Combining the structures and instrumentation of classical chamber music with the intricacy of Middle Eastern and Persian music and the emotional and rhythmic weight of metal, their lengthy, through-composed pieces conjure sonic worlds in which listeners can immerse themselves.
The duo has garnered virtually unanimous praise for their intense live performances and secured coveted slots at Nouvelle Prague Festival in Prague, Czech Republic, Ottawa’s RBC Bluesfest, and the Royal Conservatory’s esteemed 21C Festival in Toronto. Their internationally-acclaimed debut album Through Darkness Into Light has been praised as "an almost impossibly beautiful release" [...] "that should appeal to fans of both metal and classical music." With upcoming performances in May 2016 at Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Leipzig, Germany and a return appearance at 21C, The Visit is making their mark on the international stage as they forge a musical path all their own.
