5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Old Man's Child 11 Oct 2010
By Gas1883
Format:Audio CD
Firstly this is a band that has always interested me but for some reason I haven't got round to buying until now. I'm glad I did because from the off your straight in to an accomplished band that have a polished yet raw sound. Tracks like " The Crimson Meadows" have a real head banging moment and yet is catchy which does'nt effect the feel of the album. Galder has done a great job and I feel this for me is one of the best Black Metal albums to date. I'm looking forward to purchasing their back catalogue.

Great Stuff.

Black metal has always had a love or hate relationship within the metal community. With Old Man's Child's latest release 'Slaves of the World' you get a balanced blackened metal offering that will either impress or once again split opinion.

Opening in top form with the slowly moving, dark title track, which perfectly sets the tone for the whole album, moving on to thrashings of dark metallic fury which don't let up for the entire output.

Guitar work is impressive, bringing the darkness is Dimmu guitar man Gaulder, proving that even outside Dimmu themselves he's still an accomplished guitarist and he's definately in his comfort zone here.
The production is polished but still very raw, with some well placed panning and overall is a impressive sounding record.

Although it's black metal, and I'm assuming most listeners will be coming to OMC from Dimmu, it doesn't sound like a Dimmu spin-off, with it's old-skool riffs and manages to feel darker and deeper. I expect Dimmu fans will enjoy it but don't expect songs like 'Progenies' or 'Serpentine Offering' here.

'Slaves...' is an impressive, dark, metallic record proving that black metal can maybe appeal to a bigger audience, its a thoroughly enjoyable listen and well worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars progressive, norwegian, black metal 1 Jun 2009
By Damon C. Catt - Published on
Galder is back with his finest O.M.C. album to date. Galder also of Dimmu Borgir displays his world class talent on slaves of the world. The impessive thing with Galder he can differentiate his style of music from O.M.C. to dimmu borgir entirely well. Galder delivers a full force guttural vocal assault along with precise tight druming ,techical and catchy guitar riffs. This is symphonic black metal with some extraordinary timing signatures. All the elaborate atmospheric pieces are entwined in the music. Fans of death,black metal and even classic thrash this album is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best, most consistent, OMC 10 July 2009
By Timothy George Roettiger/Belgian Mare Brewery - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I have most of the Old Man's Child back catalogue. While I like the music I was constantly frustrated with its inconsistency. Each release had some good tracks and some duds. Even within a given song there would be moments of brilliance then a nearly song wrecking interlude. I got the feeling that Galder was not always fully applying himself, similar to Warren Zevon or Prince who could go from genius to dud in three minutes and 28 seconds.

This release release banishes that demon (or summons it, as the case may be)and gives us Galder at the top of his game, stem to stern. The songs have all the best elements of past OMC work without the akward moments. This work posseses a coherence and flow that was lacking in previous releases. This is a start to finish listen disc, which is perhaps the best thing I can say about it. Writing , performance, and production are all top notch. I feel that this is the best OMC release to date and will win them many new fans. Buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars okay 27 Jun 2009
By Mirthenary - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Perhaps I was a little hasty in my previous review for this. I threw the cd aside to get rid of eventually. A week went by and I decided I would give it one more try before I got rid of it. And wouldn't you know it, it grew on me and I finally decided I liked 4 or 5 songs. Granted, it still can't beat In Defiance of Existence, Vermin or Ill-natured Spiritual Invasion. But, it does go above Pagan Prosperity and Revelation 666 in the hierarchy of OMC albums.
4.0 out of 5 stars Galder's Side Project With a Blackened Death Metal Twist. 7 May 2011
By J. Yeager - Published on
Format:Audio CD
While this is definitely not OMC's best release, it grows on you with repeated listens and has something to offer to fans of Death and Black Metal, and long-time fans of Galder's awesome side project (really his main project, in my opinion). I would say that this album is more of a blackened death metal release than a black metal release. In this release, there are a lot less keyboards and synth and the focus is more on progressive, but black thrashy guitar sequences. Galder's vocal style on here is also noticeably different than all of his previous releases. On this release, he attempts to growl a lot through-out the album and his shriek is noticeably diminished. Not necessarily a bad thing, but fans of OMC's classic BM style may be taken aback (myself included). Still, the song-writing is very good and the guitar is excellent. All in all, this is a mandatory purchase for OMC fans and definitely worth checking out for any Death/Black Metal fan. A solid, likeable release that will grow on you if you give it a chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, hard-hitting c.d. 28 Mar 2010
By Brigade - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this album. Yes, like others, it took a couple play throughs for it to grow on me (except for Crimson Meadows; that song just grabbed me by the throat the first time I heard it). But once you get used to Galder's complexity and dynamics you will love it. Just to think that, other than drums, one man wrote and played everything else is amazing. A great and original black metal album that punches you in the face from 00:01 and doesn't stop until your unconscious or ready to start it all over again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Can't wait for the next.
