While Dimmu Borgir obviously don´t have much creative output soon, lead guitarist Galder fills the gap with his own band „Old Man´s Child“. As usual the bald guy cannot be stopped. Assisted by double-bass-world champion Reno H Killerich (Panzerchrist/Vile) this multi-instrumental talend created ten wonderful dark pearls that make you wonder why he is still „just“ the keyboarder for Dimmu Borgir. „Vermin“ will sustain any comparison with Shagrath &Co. any time. Every song a hit, only the production is a bit weak. Still this album is much more than just a stopgap for the next Dimmu Borgir Album.
