Old Man's Child Bio:

The band was founded in 1993. Old Man's Child's roots go as far back as 1989; when members Galder, Jardar and Tjodalv were in a death/thrash band called "Requiem". Old Man's Child is the brainchild of Galder, formerly known as Grusom, whose birth name is Thomas Rune Andersen. Other members have come and gone, but Galder remains the driving force behind the band. The band is rarely on tour to support their albums because of the constant line-up changes.

In 1996, the band signed to Century Media. With a world wide distribution through Century Media, they gained the attention of new fans around the world.

In 2001, Galder joined Dimmu Borgir, though his output under the OMC banner has not diminished.

"Old Man's Child" stands for "Son of the Devil", or "Child of Satan", by "Old Man" referring to the Devil.

On the 9th of July 2008 OMC announced that they were to enter the Studio on the 8th of September 2008 to record their seventh studio album.

Fom Old Man's Child Official Website:

"OMC to enter the Studio on the 8th of September. This record would be recorded in fredman again and this is the album that Galder has spent most time on ever. It will be a very dark but raw album on which Galder has experimented quite a bit on, however it will still sound very much like OMC."
