Virus: The Black Flux

The much anticipated release from Carl-Michael'Czral'Eide in the form of 'Virus' doesn't stray too far away from previous releases. Still very much classed as avant-garde while throwing in the mix of black metal, experimental metal and an element of jazz to conjure up what can only be described as infectiously interesting. While Mastodon have the market brought into their way of thinking infusing jazz elements into their music, Virus on the other hand have embraced the formula and progressed a few steps further. The hugely talented Czral twists and turns his vocals around the bands hypnotic delivery. With the rhythm section of ex Ved Buens Ende bassist Plenum and drummer Einz plodding away in the background, it doesn't take long for the excellent 'Shame Eclipse' and opening track 'Stalkers Of The Drift' to propel you into their wonderful avant-garde world of grey and black. Without a doubt if this style of music is your bag then get ready for it to be filled.
