20th anniversary reissue of Norwegian avantgarde rock maestros VIRUS' debut album Carheart, on limited edition vinyl LP featuring the original cover art for the first time.

Both critically acclaimed and a fan favourite, Carheart has stood the test of time and remains as innovative, quirky and original as ever, 20 years after it first came out via Jester Records (the eclectic label of Garm/ULVER). 

The anniversary edition will include the original CD artwork of trine&kim, on vinyl for the first time ever, and there will be three different vinyl options. Coinciding with the anniversary edition of Carheart, Duplicate will also issue the band's infamous 2000 demo on vinyl for the first time ever, including a bonus track (also a first ever on vinyl) as well as the Investigator EP tracks.

VIRUS was founded in 2000 by Czral, Einz & Plenum, and have to date released 4 full-length albums, an EP and a compilation, several of them via drummer Einz' label Duplicate Records. In 2018, the band was put on indefinite hiatus.
The outlandish threesome's debut, Carheart remains a fan favourite with its unheard of mixture of Czral's trademark dissonant riffs and alien vocals, Plenum's rollercoaster-gone-bad bass excursions and Einz' infectious grooves. All seasoned with a healthy dose of Monty Python'esque imagery and absurd darkness.

"...with their debut, Virus set a whole new musical car-heart into function, strong enough to simultaneously incorporate influences from the avant-garde spectrum of extreme metal and rock and to live up to the most demanding expectations from today’s avant-garde rock/metal scene." - sputnikmusic.com
