"The Well-Intentioned Virus" is the eleventh full-length album by metalcore band Zao, released on December 9, 2016 via the group’s own Observed/Observer Recordings.
The album features the first studio performance of Russ Cogdell for the first time since 2004's The Funeral of God.
Many of the lyrics have personal meaning to vocalist Daniel Weydant. The song "The Weeping Vessel" has to do with the miscarriage of the Weydant's first child. "A Well-Intentioned Virus" deals with people who thought what they were doing was right but were later looked upon as evil. "Broken Pact Blues" deals with Weydant's brother Matt breaking a suicide pact. Other tracks have to deal with mortality, false truths and fever dreams.
Critical reception ---- "Danielle Martin of HM Magazine wrote "Zao has undoubtedly added to their score of culturally-relevant albums with this one. With its veteran backbone, raw voice, and savage-yet-developed cacophony, it will join the ranks of their more memorable releases".
