V

irus was really the re-animation of Ved Buens Ende, formed by well-known Norwegian black metal musician Aggressor. They recorded a three-song demo and planned to release an album through 'Jester Records'. Czral himself described the band, "Virus is more of an eccentric rock band than a metal band. People have said it sounds like a mixture of Talking Heads and Voivod. Virus is linked musically to my old band Ved Buens Ende, but shouldn't be looked upon solely as its predecessor". By the time of this publishing they had released The Drama Hour (2001) and Carheart (2003) featuring the membership of Petter Barntsen (a.k.a. Plenum; of Audiopain; bass), Carl-Michael Eide (a.k.a. Aggressor/a.k.a.Czarl; ex-DHG/ex-Aura Noir/ex-Dimmu Borgir/ex-Cadaver Inc./ex-Darkthrone/ex-Ulver/ex-Ved Buens Ende/ex-Fleurety/ex-Void/ex-Inferno/ex-Satyricon/ex-White Willow/ex-Cadaver; guitar/vocals), Einar Sursj√ł (a.k.a. Esso; ex-Fleurety/ex-Beyond Dawn/ex-Lamented Souls/ex-Inferno; drums).


Footnote: No relation to the Virus that published Pray For War on the 'Metalworks' label in 1987 featuring Henry Heston (guitar/vocals), Damien Hess (bass) and Terry Kaylor (drums).
