Hypocrisy - Virus

Hypocrisy - Virus

Virus is the tenth studio album that was released on September 19, 2005 by death metal band Hypocrisy. A video was made for the song "Scrutinized".

Early pressings of the CD came with a thirteen-song limited edition live DVD, with 12 songs recorded in Strasbourg on Hypocrisy's 2004 tour as support of Cannibal Corpse, and from a different show they play the song Total Disaster by Destruction along with the band's vocalist/bass player Marcel 'Schmier' Schirmer. Some cds also feature a bonus track, "Watch Out", which appears to be a demo of a song recorded in 2000.

Some early pressings have an error where a scratch sound can be heard on tracks 6 and 11. Nuclear Blast has stated they will mail a replacement disc to anyone who has one of these glitched discs. See Hypocrisy's official website for more details on the issue.
