Old Man's Child are one of the best bands in the black metal scene with Galder being the major force behind this band. They stray of the typical path of black metal bands using more melody and off-tempo structures in their songs. The primary focus of this album is the guitars which set the mood and atmosphere for each track. Their debut album, Born of The Flickering showed major promise for what was yet to come of them. The production of this album is pretty clear, at times somewhat thin.
