Norwegian melodic Black Metal masters Old Man’s Child are back at last…and with a vengeance!
The band led by guitarist / vocalist Galder (also in Dimmu Borgir) just returned to their Norwegian home from a trip to Gothenburg / Sweden, where the band spent some weeks laying down the new unholy compositions at Studio Fredman with Fredrik Nordström (Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy, In Flames, etc.), who had previously worked with the band on their “In Defiance Of Existence” (2003) and “Vermin” (2005) albums.
The new OMC studio album’s title has not yet been revealed, but the release will feature Peter Wildoer (Darkane, ex-Arch Enemy, Pestilence, etc.) on drums and having freshly finished his takes for the total of 9 classy new songs, here is Peter’s comment on the material and the recording session:
“After having being asked to be part of the new OMC album, I obviously went back and listened to the previous releases of the band, so I now am able to say that in my opinion, these new 9 songs are the best material I have heard of the band so far. There is a lot of more variety going on and the album will sound bigger than any other OMC record before.
As far as my performance goes, this is probably the best drumming I have ever recorded so far. I am extremely happy and proud of the session and there’s a lot more double bass and blast beats on here than you have normally heard me doing, so look out for this great record!”
The new album will be released in early 2009, so keep your eyes and ears open for plenty more Old Man’s Child news in the coming weeks.
