Default Virex?

Digging around in my archive of twenty year old GatMoG stuff I came across this track simply titled Virex.



I am not familiar with this track being in any of the three episodes of the cartoon. Anyone remember this?

virex was the early title / early version of imploding voice, and was on arising tour setlists as virex.

Andddd was superior as Virex. I think there's a strong case that this song suffered the worst in the transition from Arising --> Machina.

I'm one of the few the think this, I know, but I think the chorus of The Imploding Voice was way better than that of Virex. That was one of the things I remember thinking way back 1999, when listening to my homemade CD-R of the new Arising! songs, "Wow this verse is awesome, but the chorus is not so great..."

I agree. Virex has never come together into a song that flows at all for me

For sure, the soaring chorus of The Imploding Voice is a much better direction, it's still not quite there re: the mixing/production, but better than where it was live. However, the VIBE of the live version is pretty sick.

The rest? Everything else is essentially the same.

Virex has the best misheard lyrics.

Eat your peas
Cosmic cake!

IMHO Imploding Voice is supposed to be one of the "Live Glass" songs on Machina along with HMM and Glass' Theme.

Played once electric on the Machina tour...

Played once acoustic on the Machina tour...(never heard this before)
