Album Commentary

 

Virus is a single from the Best Of The Beast compilation, where it was the only new and previously unreleased song. Iron Maiden has continued their recent tradition of releasing singles in multiple parts, with part I containing a shortened version of 'Virus', while part II has the full-length version. The B-sides of part I also appear as B-sides on the Lord Of The Flies single.
