VIRUS - Demo 2000 LP (GREY) (Preorder)
NB! Preorder item, release fall 2023. Exact date TBA.
2023 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of (sadly defunct) Norwegian avantgarde rock maestros VIRUS' debut album Carheart, and in the fall a special limited anniversary edition on vinyl LP and cassette will be issued via drummer Einz' label Duplicate Records.Coinciding with the anniversary edition of Carheart, Duplicate will also issue the band's infamous 2000 demo on vinyl for the first time ever, including a bonus track.
A special limited bundle containing both Carheart and Demo 2000 on LP and cassette will also be available.
VIRUS was started in 2000 by Czral, Einz & Plenum, and have to date released 4 full-length albums, an EP and a compilation, several of them via drummer Einz' label Duplicate Records. In 2018, the band was put on indefinite hiatus.
The outlandish threesome's debut, Carheart remains a fan favourite with its unheard of mixture of Czral's trademark dissonant riffs and alien vocals, Plenum's rollercoaster-gone-bad bass excursions and Einz' infectious grooves. All seasoned with a healthy dose of Monty Python'esque imagery and absurd darkness.
The Demo 2000 LP contains demo versions of 3 Carheart songs, 1 song from the same sessions that was not included on Carheart, and a later track recorded for an abandoned 7"EP.
1. It's All Gone Weird 7:10
