Virus was formed in 2000 by guitarist / singer Carl-Michael “Czral” Eide (Aura Noir, Ulver, Satyricon, etc.) along with bass player Petter “Plenum” Berntsen (Audiopain) and drummer Einar “Einz” Sjursø (Lamented Souls, Beyond Dawn), with the intention of taking key elements of Czral’s former avant-garde black metal band Ved Buens Ende further into weirdness and farther from metal. Through three critically acclaimed album releases Czral’s unique dissonant guitar flavour and song writing has fascinated, puzzled, and ensnared listeners worldwide, not least thanks to the live performances (as a 5-piece) the band have undertaken since early 2011, including Sonisphere, Brutal Assault, Hole In The Sky, Aurora Infernalis etc.

Virus is also set to release a mini album to coincide with the tour. Titled “Oblivion Clock,” the album runs at over thirty minutes and features four new track and three bonus tracks that until now have only been available on extremely limited releases. At the same time band will also be releasing a new vinyl edition of sophomore album “The Black Flux.” “Oblivion Clock” will be available as a digifile CD on the tour, and is also already available to pre-order from this location along with the “Black Flux” vinyl.
