Virus is the tenth studio album that was released on September 19, 2005 by death metal band Hypocrisy. This is the first Hypocrisy album recorded with their new drummer, Horgh (Reidar Horghagen), from the black metal band Immortal and second guitarist, Andreas Holma. 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.
