    If someone impresses Ed Rush & Optical enough to get a record deal, they must be a cut above the rest. Audio's first release for Virus was the diseased-sounding Planet Fall and heavyweight Pandorum. Adding continuity to the Virus sound, but distinguishing himself with his profuse use of trademark buzz-saw synths, Audio has tentatively titled his first Virus album Stratosphere. Audio himself had this to say:

    The confirmed tracks so far are:

    Collision
    The Journey
    Fourth Kind
    Moon Dock
    Stratosphere
    Genesis Device
    Detected

    The album will be spread over three vinyl plates, the CD will contain 13 tunes including some dubstep and other styles. I was only asked to do the LP three months ago!

    Ed Rush shedded some light on the album: It's going to be heavyweight Virus tech. They're already the heaviest tunes I have heard in a long while and it's not even mastered yet.

    Audio is a fucking don and I love his sound. An album on Virus is only going to mean good good things. Thanks.

    Wicked tune, his last album was very good, if a bit too techy in places for my liking. Full of absolute killers though.

    Damn that looks good. Things are looking up for the Virus camp, last few releases have redeemed my love for this label.

    Right seriously, I cannot wait for this album anymore. If he doesn't release this soon then I'm going to have to find out where he lives and do a little poo in the cup of my hand.

    That is all

    This has the potential to be one of the albums of the year.

    Who cares about the artwork? Even if it was a blank white canvas with shit smeared on it I'd still buy it. Saying that I usually buy promos anyway so artwork is never an issue.

    Like Tim said, it's the content that's important. This album is gonna be mindblowing. :)
