Pure, unadulterated, ballsy, 80s-style hard rock/metal that unsurprisingly owes a debt to WASP, but with more melodic sensibilities. For many folks, the sound of this CD will be like a siren's song, sweet to the ears and utterly enthralling with its sonic allure; others will find this rock-and-roll animal to be a bit too generic, too overly familiar, too been-there-done-that to be truly impressed. In the end, I found it to be a solid hard rock album, but nothing particularly special, despite the production of Chris Laney (Crazy Lixx). But that's just me, and a lot of headbangers around here will be hellaciously happy to inject this "Virus" into their stereo system.

This kixx ass! As said Hardrock/metal in the good old WASP style. Cool metal version of CRANBERRIES ZOMBIE.

From: Wolven Date: February 3, 2009 at 14:26
That's what I call first class hard rock ! Solid production, up-tempo songs and memorable chorus. One of my 2008's favorites for sure.

Agree with the comments above!...great Hard Rock with is used as a very lethal injection!!!...Randy Piper,for me one was a very talented musician while in WASP but somehow lived overshadowed by Lawless and with his solo project he has done good music and one example is this Virus one..."Cardiac Arrest" what a way 2 start!,rocks your socks off!!!,"Can't Stop" ,"Crying Eagle" a killer track,"UnNatural High" is IMHO the best song of the record along with "Shoot To Kill"..."Zombie" is a brilliant cover song original of The Cranberries & "L.U.S.T." ends the album decently good...a good effort and waiting 4 a new release...88/100

Wasn't expecting much from this but was blown away. This has feel of WASP to it but much better & is high quality hard rock/metal with plenty of melody & some great choruses. It's hard to pick a favourite as I liked every track but "Crying Eagle", "Unnatural high", "Shoot to kill" & "Can't stop" are exceptional. Good production too.
