"Glass Walls of Limbo" is a song by Type O Negative, included on the first album Slow, Deep and Hard, released in 1991. The track does not have singing voice nor even a metal riff. Instead it comprises the sound of broken glass falling on the metal floor repeating constantly over church-like choir, sometimes interrupted by raspy shrieks. It can be considered the most humorous track of the album. The track title suggests that on the other side of the walls made of glass is Limbo, which in Catholic theology was a part of Hell hypothized to harbor those who died under Original Sin.
Of the six actual tracks on the album, "Glass Walls of Limbo" is the only one that is not split into cantos. Its title is an example of the band's humour, given the nature of the music.
