TERMINARYX is playing this killer new all-day event!

ALTERnatives The Festival

EVENT PAGE

Calling all ALTERnatives! (and lovers of good music alike)
An exciting (and long overdue) all-day Cape Town music festival featuring 11 live acts of various Alternative extractions is set to reverberate through Hillcrest Quarry on Sunday 26 August 2018!

Alternative music comes in many shades and incarnations, ignores convention and pretense, and delivers a pure music experience that is not repellant as some ill-informed may believe. 
This eclectic and diverse line-up of 11 bands & artists (finding themselves very often defying genre-conventions) will unite to offer a true live entertainment alternative. #AltFestSA
They include:

LITHIUM
Hard Rock Grunge

Since RAMfest sadly called it quits, other events strictly dance oriented, or much heavier like the excellent Metal4Africa events, and many not exactly as 'Rock' as they proclaim, a vacuum for a festival lay dormant where a wide range of Alternative styles (covering an extensive spectrum) can let loose. 
And here it is!

With the convergence of Dionysius Events, the Terminatryx 16th anniversary 'Duality Tour', and Polar Dust's 'Burning Water Tour', what was to be a regular show exploded into a full day festival a rarely assembled collection of amazing acts on one stage. 
And with the affiliation of Flamedrop's documentaries currently in production (looking at the SA Alternative music scene and its history) entitled ALTERnatives, the festival got its name! 
Straight, to the point, nothing cryptic. 

This is the first of what is set to be an annual event, and is not to be missed.
A decade down the line, you'll want to say, "I was at the very first ALTERnatives music festival!"

See you there!

Unfortunately guitarist Mark was unable to find a middle ground with the material and decided
it was best to move on.
This led to Terminatryx forging ahead smoothly as a 3-piece, entering a new era in its 16th year.
While playing both bass and guitar when recording, for the new live configuration Paul will be switching
from bass to guitar.
Next live show in May!

For the remix of Afrikaans song "Masjien" on the TERMINATRYX "Remyx v2.0" album, the band had a brainflash:
ask SA Industrial legends Battery 9 to do a mash-up with their 1996 cut "Kiss The Machine"... 
The wish was granted and here is the track's lyric video! 
Expect rockets, explosions, space ships, blades and gears... and words of course!

TERMINATRYX
"ONTVLUGTING"
Music Video





[ Directed & Edited by Paul A. Blom ]

Terminatryx was honoured to oblige when asked to adapt a poem from the rich oeuvre of legendary South African poet Ingrid Joker, for a tribute album linked to the 50th commemoration of her tragic death (by suicide) in the mid-1960s.
Terminatryx chose “Ontvlugting” (Escape), and reveals a different side to the band, but the trademark sound and mood is definitely in tact (while perceived as a touch milder than expected, still filled with impact as it drives towards its climax).
This is the band’s third Afrikaans song.

Compiled by Ingrid Jonker’s daughter Simone and her husband Ernesto Garcia Marques, the tribute album is titled “Die Kind Is Nog Jonger” (The Child Is Still Younger), and contains 36 diverse artists of various genres, including South African legends, alternative stalwarts and also international acts (some performing English translations). 
The album has only garnered high praise in the press, the 5-star review in www.WatKykJy.co.za singling Terminatryx out as “next level” and doing the passionate poem more than justice.

The album was released by Flamedrop Productions and Sound Action, and is available on double CD, limited edition vinyl LP and download (from all reputed stores incl. iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon mp3 etc.) 
CDs and vinyl can be picked up at stores across South Africa, or ordered on-line at www.loot.co.za and www.raru.co.za

More details on the album, its background and all the artists can be found at www.flamedrop.com/ingridjonker

Such is Ingrid Jonker’s impact that Nelson Mandela praised her and read from her poem “Die Kind” (The Child) during his address at the opening of the first democratically elected parliament in 1994.

For the ocean themed music video to this darkly melancholic song, Terminatryx incorporated selected scenes from a short film made by drummer Ronnie and his BlackMilk partners Thomas Dorman (also a regular Terminatryx photographic collaborator), Leon Visser and Este Kira. This short film is titled “Onrusbarend” (Unbearable), and won a Shnit award.

TERMINATRYX
Self-Titled Debut Album
8th Anniversary

Terminatryx Debut 2008

The week of July 4th we're celebrating our self-titled debut album's 8th anniversary!
And we're making it available for free download ths week.
(Always keen on the unconventional, on July 4th, 2008 TERMINATRYX had the Cape Town launch
for the album at the Labia Theatre cinema! The music / movie double feature show had the band's
live performance followed by a special pre-release screening of werewolf movie Skin Walkers).
Thanks to everyone who'd been on this ride with us for 14 years(!), as well as newcomers (and the haters for proving that we're doing something right, getting under their skin!).
As a token of our appreciation, head to terminatryx.bandcamp.com/album/terminatryx and pop in a $0 at checkout. Limited downloads, so get your ass over there!




TERMINATRYX
"Siek + Sat"
Music Video



In 2008 TERMINATRYX shot a music video for the Afrikaans song "Siek + Sat" (Sick + Tired)
from the self-titled debut album.
For various reasons at the time, the video was shelved for release (see below) and only used
as a live performance backdrop.
Now, 8 years later (2016), it is being released for the first time...

The song is a stream of consciousness tirade on some of the aspects of life on planet earth
that can rub you up the wrong way (in one of SA's very expressive languages, Afrikaans). 
In order to illustrate this, Terminatryx co-founder and video director Paul wanted to have
this fury materialise in the video. He devised a simple but effective method, having the band perform
in front of green flames, but when the chorus kicks in, the fire turns red together with
the band members erupting into alter egos of disdain. 
For this effect the talented duo of Clinton Smith and Daleen Badenhorst of Cosmesis transformed
Sonja, Ronnie, Patrick and Paul with practical make-up application, including painted veins
and black-out contact lenses - yes, half a decade before Die Antwoord :)

2008 was still very much a pre-HD era, the video shot in SD DV, Paul wasn't happy that the
great make-up work by Clinton and Daleen got diminished by the less than perfect video quality.
On top of this, it was Paul's first attempt at editing green screen shot footage
(to key in the flames and band members). The less-crisp quality led to a lot of bleeding and interference. 
While the video did get screened as an opening clip before Paul & Sonja's Makabra Ensemble
live movie soundtrack performance of Nosferatu at the Oppi Koppi music festival
(and a few other film festivals like the SA HorrorFest), it was never 100% satisfactory.
So, it got shelved and only used as part of the live video backdrop to synch up
with the song when performed. 

But, now that the self-titled TERMINATRYX debut album (where "Siek+Sat" features)
is celebrating its 8th anniversary, we thought it was time the video got dusted off
and revealed to the wider public for the first time.
Looking back at it again after many years, it is actually far less terrible than the fog of memory recalls(!).
Enjoy!

INGRID JONKER Tribute Album
"Die Kind Is Nog Jonger"
(The Child Is Still Younger)


Terminatryx Ingrid Jonker

It has been a long and winding road to get this landmark compilation album released.
Check out the TERMINATRYX adaptation of Jonker's poem "Ontvlugting" right here:

 


Legendary South African poetry icon and literary giant Ingrid Jonker committed suicide
50 years ago by walking into the ocean at Three Anchor Bay, Cape Town.

Her daughter Simone and husband Ernesto selected 36 artists to adapt Jonker's work
in whichever way they felt inspired.
The result is an amazing double album of varied artists paying tribute by breathing
new life into her timeless words.


When they struggled to get record companies interested, Terminatryx
co-founder Paul Blom stepped in to make it a reality (having listened to all the incredible
tracks and feeling it cannot be shelved). With a crowd funding campaign
and an indie release via Paul's Flamedrop (and Ernesto's Sound Action),
the collection was launched 3 June on double CD and download
(the limited edition vinyl LP set for July).

TERMINATRYX LIVE VIDEO RELEASED

On 4 March 2015 TERMINATRYX supported iconic Industrial legend Al Jourgensen's MINISTRY on their first ever
South African tour (hosted by Witchdoctor Productions, at Carfax, Johannesburg).




It had been 6 years since Cape Town-based TERMINATRYX toured up North (Gauteng area), so the band took the opportunity to get South African alternative legend Paul Riekert (of Battery 9) on stage with them. The TERMINATRYX debut album got a full remixed version in the shape of "Remyx v1.0" (2011), and Paul chose the band's first Afrikaans song "Siek+Sat" (translated: "Sick+Tired"). So a live version of this track was the perfect choice with which to include him on this auspicious evening for guest backing vocals. 

Battery 9 are South African Industrial pioneers and hadn't played live for years (since band member Huyser Burger's sad, untimely death) - So it wasn't just a thrill to have Paul on stage with TERMINATRYX, but also get him back in front of people who hadn't seen him there in a while.

This live clip of the "Siek+Sat" remix was edited from a fan shot video and includes a cool range of photographs.

Thanks to everyone coming out to support, many flying in from all over South Africa for this one night only event.
(The SlashDogs were also on the bill)
