VIRUS - Memento Collider LP (MARBLE)
Undoubtedly one of the most unique bands to come out of Norway, VIRUS have, for over a decade now, developed their otherworldly style and garnered themselves a large following that spans both the metal and rock scene world-wide. “Memento Collider” heralds VIRUS‘ return to their original 3-piece lineup of Carl-Michael “Czral” Eide on guitars and vocals, Petter “Plenum” Berntsen on bass and Einar “Einz” Sjursø on drums. This time the iconic trio have taken VIRUS’ idiosyncratic trademark sound of unusual flowing bass lines, experimental riffs and groovy rhythms a few steps further, to create a sound that is still very much experimental and progressive in the true sense of those definitions, but at the same time is catchy and melodic. “Memento Collider” marks a spectacular return for VIRUS, where they once again demonstrate what the true essence of progressive rock is all about!
