Sound: Old Man's Child have always followed a different path than most of the Black Metal bands, so needless to say the music has also gone off the beaten path. If you are familiar with OMC than it's more of the same for the most part, but with a new maturity that was greatly appreciated. // 7

Lyrics: Lyrics like before more of the same, Galder gives about the same performance as usual which many people don't like but in my preference I like it. The music along with the lyrics is what makes the album shine, the passages are filled with fast and aggressive riffs; that along with the great symphony sections and quick stops set the record apart from others. // 7

Overall Impression: Overall the album is a lot of the same but with tons more of technical skill utilized on this album, in comparison it's more polished than most Black Metal but sounds like the usually OMC or Dimmu stuff which not everyone enjoys. Best songs are Lord Of Command and In Torments Orbit, it's as good as the last album if not better, and the music is amazing. I would re-buy it. // 8
