THE SELF-TITLED TERMINATRYX DEBUT ALBUM
Released May 2008 thru ENT Entertainment
(Cat. # CDENT 010 - distributed in Southern Africa by IRIS)
The TERMINATRYX debut album released in May 2008 through ENT Entertainment, South Africa -
distributed by IRIS (cat. no. CDENT 010).
Listen to and purchase the album at:
The TERMINATRYX sound is a unique one in the South African musical milieu with the combination of stunning vocalist Sonja Ruppersberg and the music of extreme music veteran Paul Blom (V.O.D, F8, and SAMA winners K.O.B.U.S.) blending into an Industrial-Metal soundscape rarely found in this country.
In addition there are many musical elements subtly filtering through across the diverse songs, from Alternative-, Hard Core- and Gothic elements, to Electronic-, Dark Wave- and Punk hints.
From the start TERMINATRYX never attempted to sound like anyone out there, developing a flavour all their own with inspiration coming from cinematic moods rather than other musical references.
The undercurrent of the fusion-, symbiosis- and corruption of man & technology is illustrated and supplemented with subjects ranging from socio-political issues, individualism & independent thought, consumerism, a critical tirade in Afrikaans, a love song alternative, biological- and viral infection, alien visitation, instrumentals and more.
With a natural aversion to cheap commercial sentiments and a blind consumer society, TERMINATRYX is truly a unique South African audio adventure, looking at the world with a satirical eye as they take the listener through a juxtaposed range of sonic intensity and calm, merging technology with the organic in a David Cronenberg vs. H.R Giger trip.
Produced by Paul, the track elements were re-recorded in February 2008 at Flamedrop Productions (with many of the original segments which were recorded since 2003 retained).
All of the songs are original creations with Sonja and Paul also acting as executive producers.
Early March 2008 Paul joined Simon "Fuzzy" Ratcliffe across a 10-day period at Sound & Motion Studios
where mixing commenced. The final mastering was done late-March.
The album cover pictures were shot by Graham Abbott (of One Productions),
with concept, design, art-direction & post-production by Paul Blom.
The video clip MIDNIGHT and a web link are included as an enhanced CD segment on the album. The video features clips from F.W. Murnau’s silent German classic Nosferatu.
TERMINATRYX also created an original soundtrack for Nosferatu with collaborators, performed live to the screen at the 2006 South African HORRORFEST Film Festival (a DVD of which was released in October 2008).
This collaborative project is now known as The Makabra Ensemble.
The Midnight video clip (and others) are also at www.YouTube.com/Terminatryx.
3 Midnight versions can be found here, with either the new audio track or the older demo version, as well as the remixed version (as it appears on the Remyx v 1.0 album).
Album launch shows happened in Gauteng in May 2008, and Cape Town on the 4th of July (at the Labia Thetare beneath the big screen, with a synced-up video backdrop, and followed by a premiere sneak preview of the werewolf movie Skinwalkers).
In a televised talent show-, and mock reality drenched commercial media decline, TERMINATRYX is not merely a breath of fresh air, but a long awaited new direction out to rattle the cage just enough to make a saturated public stand still and realize there's more out there than they are being fed.
TERMINATRYX Track Listing
click here for lyrics
1. Venus Rising (2:17)
This instrumental opener crashes in with a fusion of Industrial beats, loops and Metal guitars,
setting the scene for an exciting ride.
2. CONsume (4:53)
Taking a dig at the ludicrous consumer society in which humanity has trapped itself,
here its absurdity is reflected back at the listener, often in a satirical way.
3. Virus (4:05)
The song explores the view that mankind can be seen as a virus on planet earth,
while referencing both the hazards of organic human viral infection as well as that in cyber space, and how they relate (illustrated with the blending of a heart beat and modem connection in the intro).
4. Midnight (3:31)
Born from vocalist Sonja's many years in the Cape Town Gothic community, this is her love letter to an
ever shrinking sub-culture (all with a vampiric slant). After a wolf's howl and the hypnotic rolling beat is introduced, a German nursery rhyme narration by guest Christina Storm opens the song.
5. SleepWalkers (3:15)
A condemnation of self-proclaimed leaders (political, religious and others), with only their own interests at heart.
The song has a trippy feel. Original guitarist Tom Somers' closing lead segment was retained.
6. Tabloid Android (3:18)
After a highly misinformed and incompetent newspaper article on Terminatryx (the so-called writer even going so far as to
alter the band's name!), it sparked this song which attacks bogus journalism and tabloid stupidity.
7. Symbionik (2:37)
A pulsating instrumental that could be the open credit music to an as yet un-produced futuristic video game.
8. We Come In Peace (3:42)
The song takes a look at the possibility of alien life and their possible motivations for visit earth.
Another lead guitar piece by original guitarist Tom was used.
9. Up To You (2:57)
A rallying call for independent thought, a sense of self, individuality and living with your decisions.
10. The Love Song (3:51)
A tongue in cheek anti-love song with an explosion of expletives.
11. Siek + Sat (3:52)
One of the more intense songs on the album, this is a free-flow tirade against a list of things that pisses many of us off.
The lyrics are in Afrikaans, one of South Africa's indigenous languages. Special guest Jenna Bird added a few well-placed notes of piano.
12. Absinthium (2:28)
This ethereal instrumental closes the album off.
Features fretless bass guitar and special guest Simon Ratcliffe on upright bass and a variety of exotic flutes, adding an organic emotional element to the predominantly electronically programmed backbone of the track.
Enhanced CD segment includes music video for Midnight and a web link.
