OK, if you litsen to Moonbabies, Track 9, Midnight bell, and then to OTV, Track 3, Alien Hip-Hop, are they similar or what? It sounds like it at the start, do you agree? I think they did it again just all the way through the song on OTV. Talk

I disagree.... in one way, it's the same idea, but the song's structure is different, and it just sounds different. Especially if you listen to the demo of midnight bell, there is very little resemblance..

I think itīs that concept thatīs almost the same, not the song itself.
Jeppe (morgenthaler) and I talked about this when we met and that this type of grooves and technique really is a trademark for Virgil. I have never heard anyone play something like that before...has anyone else??

If by "something like that" you meen that the guitar, the bass and/or the keys play the same pattern as the bassdrum(s), then yes I've heard other musicians do it.
But not by far as complex as Virgil. A track from Sam Aliano's solo record comes to mind. The track is called Suicide if I remember correctly.
It's also very common in heavy music.
