The blasphemous force of OLD MAN'S CHILD started to rise 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 devastating combination of classic thrash mixed with intense death metal and symphonic black metal.

In November of 1994, the band entered the studio to record their infamous 5-song demo, In The Shades Of Life, which gained the attention of Dimmu Borgir vocalist Shagrath's label Hot Records. The group instantly began working on their debut album, Born Of The Flickering, which made an impact on the exploding black metal scene. With its evil mystique and raw sound, it gained the interests of Century Media who signed the band and reissued the album immediately making the band name internationally known.

The black metal community's raves continued with OMC's second album, The Pagan Prosperity. This new lineup featured two former members of Tulus: drummer Sarke - replacing Tjodlav, who joined Dimmu Borgir - and bassist Blodstrup. In 1997, Galder immediately began working on his next album, Ill-Natured Spiritual Invasion, featuring Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad, Dark Angel, Death, Testament) on drums and was recorded in Sweden's famous Sunlight Studios with engineer Tomas Skogsberg (Entombed, Dismember). With Hoglan's brilliant playing matching Galder's creative skills, this thrashier release upped the ante once again for OMC, and now the band had finally attained the recognition and exposure they deserved.

For the recording of 2000's Revelation 666: The Curse Of Damnation, Galder recruited original OMC guitarist Jardar, as well as guest drummer Tjodlav. Fresh from Dimmu Borgir, Tjodlav lent an imposing black metal feel to four of the album's eight tracks. In addition, the broad use of keyboards and atmospheric nuances added darker and more serious elements to OMC's sound, and the outcome is as inviting as it is sinister. Peter Tägtgren engineered Revelation 666 and co-produced it with Galder in his famous Abyss Studios (Dimmu Borgir, Hypocrisy, Immortal). This record earned the band its highest accolades.

OLD MAN'S CHILD took a short hiatus when Galder joined black metal titans Dimmu Borgir in 2000. Nevertheless, the dark legions have come together once again and in 2002 Galder started work on In Defiance Of Existence. He was again joined by Jardar (guitars) to create another piece of atmospheric black metal in true OMC fashion. The only thing missing was a drummer that could match the intensity of both guitarists. He needed to look no further than his own Dimmu Borgir bandmate Nicholas Barker (ex-Cradle of Filth). Galder produced the album himself and it was recorded in Sweden's famous Studio Fredman (In Flames, Arch Enemy) together with engineer Fredrik Nordström. There is also a guest appearance by Gus G. (Dream Evil), who provided guitar solos on two tracks. From the scorching twin melodic guitar assault to the ear-splitting drumming intensity OLD MAN'S CHILD created a genre-defying offering that will stand the test of time.

In Defiance Of Existence is a soundtrack to the apocalypse, a record that knows no limits and an album that will torture your soul.
