Old Man's Child

1993 - present

Old Man's Child is a Melodic Black Metal band formed in Oslo, Norway in the summer of 1993 when guitarist/vocalist Galder (originally known as Grusom), guitarist Jardar and drummer Tjodalv decided to form a band dedicated to classic death metal. They soon discovered their mutual love for extreme black metal and when ex-Dimmu Borgir bassist Brynjard Tristan joined their new musical direction was clear… a combination of classic thrash mixed with death metal and melodic black metal. Their earlier albums are viking metal orientated, continuing through to symphonic black metal, whilst their later albums have a more groovier sound to them.
