Staff review by
After 3 long years of waiting, Old Man's Child finally released their fifth Full length Album with Jardar in the guitars, Nicholas Barker (Dimmu Borgir) in the drums, and the almighty Galder in the vocals bass and keyboards.

Now about the album per se, it's a good album, the lyrics are about insolence, disobedience, blasphemy, depravity, etc. in short the lyrics have the usual Old Man's Child substance and theme. The drumming is incredible and I mean it, not only because it's fast also because it's very complex and multifaceted. The atmosphere is overwhelming and the execution is great.

This is my favourite OMC album. All songs are equally great and very catchy as well. And Nick Barker is pretty amazing on this record.

This album is not just a great OMC Album, but this is 1 of the greatest albums ever! Easily a top 5 black metal album for me. Galder is the man, too bad dimmu's new shit is ... well .... shit!

Amazing album. I would put this right next to Dimmu Borgir's 'Puritanical' release. Nick Barker on Drums legit as ever!!
