New albums for Norway’s Old Man’s Child and it is happily a good one. Galder leaves a while his heavy duties with Dimmu Borgir and releases another album with the main incidents that he uses in his music. Great structured songs, with riffs that grow amidst each song,melodies that offer more, instead of making the result cheesy.
Actually there is not much left to say,as there are not much differences to the other albums,especially the previous entitled ”Vermin”.
You always know that Old Man’s Child will stay loyal to their basic ideas: well played metal, mostly for black metal fans, but also for metalheads that like melody. It is not luck that they still remain in Century Media,a record company which is very strict with its bands and won’t sign new contracr with them,unless they are worth it. Old Man’s Child are surely worth it and tehy prove it once again with their seventh full length release.
Don’t expect the fury of debut album ”Born of the Flickering” here, such albums happen only once. The good thing is that there is a good balance of extremity and melody,most songs are catchy(in the good way) and the album flows easily,becoming a pleasant experience. Peter Wildoer plays the drums here, offering an excellent performance as always, wherever he’s played (Darkane, Arch Enemy and recently on the Grimmark and Pestilence new albums) An album worth listening to and getting yourself busy with.
They have done it much better in the past, but that doesn’t mean that ”Slaves of the World” is a crappy one.
