Century Media records have confirmed that Norwegian melodic black metal masters Old Man's Child are back at last... and with a vengeance.

The band led by guitarist / vocalist Galder (Dimmu Borgir) just returned to their Norwegian home from a trip to Gothenburg, Sweden, where they spent some weeks laying down the new unholy compositions at Studio Fredman with Fredrik Nordström, who had previously worked with the band on their "In Defiance Of Existence" (2003) and "Vermin" (2005) albums.

The new Old Man's Child 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 world will come to an end when a band member says "This record is a bit worse than our last album to be honest, but oh well... we've done our best." xD
They always say "it's our strongest evar!"

Ya, what band members/record labels/producers say about a band's new album really doesn't matter because even if it was the worst pos out there they'd still say it's their best release to date. Oh well, hope it's good

Looking forward to it :-) any one got an idea of the release date?

Well recent releases have always shown that Galder reserves his cool riffs for OMC and that the ones in Dimmu Borgir are kinda lame....promises to be a fantastic release! I loved "Vermin" and from what they said in the post it seems there will be even more variation - I love variation
