Virus Of Ideal is melodic death / symphonic metal band from Central CT.
«SURPRISE! We are thrilled to share our cover of the Cradle Of Filth classic, Nymphetamine Fix! Download it for free on our Bandcamp page!».
This iconic song is special to us because we played it live at our first few shows before we had enough originals to flesh out a full set. We were planning on formally recording and releasing it anyways, but we thought it would make the wait for the album a bit easier if we had something new for you to listen to sooner rather than later! Plus, isn’t Cradle Of Filth the perfect band for Halloween?
The band comments:
«CNymphetamine Fix is obviously a classic, but the main reason we chose to cover this song is because it fits our style perfectly: it has a balanced mix of screaming and clean vocals with strong keyboards and orchestrations. This song was a challenge to record because there are way more layers of vocals, orchestrations, and guitars than we are used to».
«Fortunately, our drummer Brian Westbrook (Lich King)) is also a producer with a fantastic ear; we were able to stay very faithful to the original due largely to his direction. We know our debut album is long overdue (our EP is 5 years old), but we are still making progress despite numerous setbacks over the years. We were planning to cover this song anyways, but we thought it would make the wait a bit easier for our fans to have something new to listen to in the meantime».
