Old Man's Child is a Norwegian symphonic black metal band.
The band was founded in 1993. 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's roots go as far back as 1989; members Galder, Jardar and Tjodalv were in a death/thrash band called "Requiem" before.
"Old Man's Child" stands for "Son of the Devil", or "Child of Satan", by "Old Man" referring to the Devil.
