"Slaves Of The New World" is the second studio-album by this US Hard-Rock-Band. Their Debut-Album "Metallic Blue" Was Welcomed Overwhelmingly By The Rock-Press And Fans Around The World. Just Like The Previous Album, This One Will Also Be Released In Japan By The Label Avex. "Slaves Of The New World" Was Produced By Mike Slamer, Who Is Well Known To Many Rock Fans As A Former Member Of Groups Like City Boy And Streets.
Norwegian melodic black metal band OLD MAN'S CHILD, which is led by guitarist/vocalist Galder (also in DIMMU BORGIR), will release its new album, "Slaves Of The World", on May 19 via Century Media Records (one day earlier internationally). The CD was recorded last fall at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (DIMMU BORGIR, ARCH ENEMY, IN FLAMES, etc.), who had previously worked with the band on the "In Defiance Of Existence" (2003) and "Vermin" (2005) albums. The nine-song effort features Peter Wildoer (DARKANE, PESTILENCE) on drums.
If you take Country Music & mix in a heaping portion of Soul & some Blues, you'll end up with Jackpot a Rock & Roll Album. If ya looking for songs about pickup trucks, raising your beer glass & Syrupy love songs . . . you are not going to find much of this subject matter on our 2nd release "JACKPOT". There is much more in life to be pondered and our aim is to address subjects like domestic violence, usury, dead beats, woman who bury their husbands in the garden, musicians who are slaves to their craft and why has dooms day come and gone again and yet I am writing these notes. I can tell you . . . expect a Rock & Roll album. One that's gonna make you want to dance, grin and maybe shed a tear…
For the real melodic rock lover the name Mike Slamer does not need any introduction anymore. Mike was already in the seventies involved in the band City Boy, but really made a name for himself by his involvement with bands as Streets, Steelhouse Lane and Seventh Key. Especially both Steelhouse Lane records ('Metallic Blue' and 'Slaves Of The New World') are true A.O.R. highlights and should be present in the CD cabinet of any A.O.R.-fan with at least a little self respect.
