ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Terminatryx (pronounced: "terminaytricks") - a new breed of South African music.

Terminatryx is a rare and unique sight on the South African music scene, its exciting Alternative approach setting it apart from most, and defying expectations.

(Band biography below remix album info)

The First Terminatryx Remix Album:

Terminatryx has always been a band that defies convention.
Late-2008 / early-2009 South Africa’s female-fronted Industrial-Metal band Terminatryx embarked on finding the right people to remix the entire acclaimed self-titled debut album and broaden its scope, a rarely tackled endeavor in South African music (except for mainstream artists doing a few songs per album, not each and every track in sequence).
This led to an incredible range of collaborators from around the world inspired by the tracks to put brand new spins on the already unique Terminatryx songs, from Dance, Industrial and Avant-Garde styles, to Trance, Aggro-Tech, EBM, Electronica, string- & acoustic versions plus more. These include people like the legendary Martin Degville from Sigue Sigue Sputnik, with Lloyd Price (UK), Sheep On Drugs (UK), Industriezone (Austria), Modern-e-Quartet (Greece), Goth legends The Awakening (relocated to the USA), and South African musical forces like Battery 9 and Mr Sakitumi, plus Terminatryx versions and bonus tracks (full track & remix / remixer details & info below)

This Flamedrop Production was mastered mid-Sept by Simon Ratcliffe, at Sound & Motion Studios, Cape Town.
As with all Terminatryx productions to date, "Remyx v1.0" is released by ENT Entertainment, and distributed by IRIS.
The cover design also got a “remix” flip by Paul Blom & Dr-Benway.

In between the original album and its remixed version, the “Terminatryx / Nosferatu” DVD was released (including music videos, a short film, photo galleries and the full classic silent vampire film Nosferatu, with its brand new soundtrack created and performed by Terminatryx with musical collaborators incl. members from Lark, Voice Of Destruction, K.O.B.U.S., Mr. Sakitumi and Matthijs Van Dijk - since then this collaborative project has produced 6 of these new silent movie soundtracks, and is accumulatively known as The Makabra Ensemble).  
The Kopskoot! album was produced by Terminatryx members and is the first ever heavy Afrikaans compilation feat 16 acts, incl. “Siek+Sat” by Terminatryx.

"Venus Rising" - remix by INDUSTRIEZONE (Austria)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): Very few South African bands have released remix albums of every single track on their release. We don’t like to be ordinary, so shortly after the release of the self-titled TERMINATRYX album, (and before the “TERMINATRYX / NOSFERATU” DVD) we got cracking.
At the beginning of this amazing collaborative process we had some people in mind, but we sent out our feelers to see who else may be interested. Eugene McArthur from Koffin Kids had a few suggestions – one of these were Industriezone. We’d never heard of them but were absolutely thrilled with their version of the opening instrumental. We loved it so much, we’ve incorporated a live version of it to open our shows.

Chris Hall (Industriezone) : Taking on the Venus Rising remix, I wanted to keep the spirit and atmosphere of the song – so I just transferred it to a more danceable version. I mainly used the original sounds and modified them through my various machines and software.


"CONsume" - remix by Martin Degville & Lloyd Price - SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK ELECTRONIC (UK)

Sonja Ruppersberg (Terminatryx): The year was 1987 and I was about 12 / 13 years old. I was introduced to Sigue Sigue Sputnik by a friend, Gareth Wiehan. The vinyl album cover was fantastic and I could not get over the beings from the future with their big hair and post apocalyptic style. I was fascinated and upon hearing the first couple of seconds of Love Missile F1 -11, I was in shock, in love and completely entranced by this group. The group was such a hit that we even had a Sigue Sigue Sputnik party and I wanted to look like Martin Degville.
The year is 2010 and we were invited to open for Martin Degville and his new configuration of Sputnik Electronic! I was nervous to meet my idol and was relieved that he was such a sweetheart and I was immediately fond of him. We opened for them, and their show was incredible. My dream came true to not only meeting Martin, performing with him, seeing him perform live and having the opportunity of spending time with him, but when he agreed to remix our track CONsume (with Lloyd Price) I was over the moon and could not believe our good fortune. Late one evening after they’d returned to the UK, we got a call from London - it was Martin wanting us to listen to the mix!! I feel such personal honour and gratitude to Martin and am extremely proud to include this mix of CONsume on our album.
The Sputnik journey has come full circle in my life and I will always be grateful to bands like Sigue Sigue Sputnik for their innovation and their inspiration. They are the sound track to many happy memories in my life. Our thanks and gratitude to Martin, Johann and Lloyd.

Lloyd Price: The CONsume mix was put together mainly on my iPhone using various apps for synths and arrangement. Once the basics had been done the track was bounced over to Logic where we layered the vocals, added the vocal fx, mixed the guitars & generally tidied it up. Martin and I work mainly over the internet, so a series of emails were bounced back and forth with urther ideas added as time went on. It was a cool mix to do.


"Virus" - remix by AXXON (South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): Axxon came to our attention via Rory Molyneaux (who went on to create A Walk With The Wicked). With not many South African bands or projects venturing into the Industrial realm, we were very pleased to find another likeminded soul in Cape Town. At the time Axxon was the solo project of Stephen Green (since then expanding into a live unit with guitars & drums)

Stephen Green (Axxon) : The idea was to restructure the song so that it had a chorus/verse structure. Starting with a bass-line and a basic beat, Sonja's melodic vocal portion of the song became the chorus. As the song began to take a basic shape, more complicated elements were added; atmospheres and sharp, cutting lead synths. The original guitars were cut and reordered, to change the overall sound of the lead guitar. Influences for the remix come from groups such as Imperative Reaction and Grendel.


"Midnight" - remix by Ashton Nyte / THE AWAKENING (USA / RSA)

Sonja Ruppersberg (Terminatryx): The song Midnight has a very special place in my heart; as the first writing contribution to the Terminatryx album. I wanted this song to land in the hands of someone very special and the most obvious choice was Ashton of The Awakening. My years as a serious Goth started out at the Purple Turtle in the mid-‘90s. The most magical evening that I recall was going to see The Awakening, Ashton had a packed venue in the palm of his hand. I was also blown away when I was lucky enough to see them on their Wham Bam Glam tour. Ashton has always had the ability to re-invent himself but to stay true to his roots. Unfortunately for us The Awakening is now based in Chicago (USA) and the remix came alive through e-mails and the Internet. I am extremely grateful to Ashton and the Awakening for this incredible remix as it is one of my favourites, and I’m very happy that it is included on this album.

Ashton Nyte (The Awakening): With this remix my intention was to highlight what I most enjoyed about the song, which included emphasizing its solid industrial groove undercurrent. Being a fan of light and shade, I added a few drops of melodrama and allowed a few more empty spaces to creep into the mix. Hopefully this gives the song a little more space to breathe without losing it's dancefloor appeal. All in all, the point was to have fun with a cool track and hopefully bring something to the party in doing so.


"SleepWalkers" - Insomnia remix by iRONic (South Africa)

Ronnie Belcher (iRONic / Terminatryx): The original version of ‘Sleepwalkers’ is one of my favourite Terminatryx tracks, so when I was approached to be part of the remix album, it was my obvious choice. The album version is simple yet complex and I felt it could benefit from an even more advanced rhythmic. The resulting drum patterns are now more intricate and are complimented by some additional monotonous synthetic bass lines. I also love the voice intro of the original version, so I included it in various parts of the remix, especially in the middle breakdown. Terminatryx has since included this remix version in their live set, to critical acclaim.

"Tabloid Android" - TERMINATRYX Acoustyx version (South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): With most of the remixes being electronically morphed and re-arranged, we thought it would be a good alternate to give at least one track an acoustic touch. I’ve never played nor recorded an acoustic guitar in my life, but am always up for a challenge. So I grabbed an acoustic bass & -guitar from our friends at Paul Bothner Music (in Claremont, Cape Town) and punched it out, adding extra percussion with guitar body taps.
At a high volume the track still sounds quite heavy, and is not exactly a chilled 'unplugged' version.


"Symbionik" - remix by SHEEP ON DRUGS (UK)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): In August 2008, Terminatryx supported Sheep On Drugs on their South African tour. With the mutual appreciation of each band for the other, we had to inquire whether SOD would be keen to remix one of the tracks. To our delight they were, and opted for the instrumental Symbionik. What I really love about the remix process is how the different remixers are drawn to the various parts, highlighting bits that may have disappeared n the original mix and giving it a new life.

Lee Fraser (Sheep On Drugs): I tackled the remix in my usual manner: dismantled the song, put the parts in a bag, shook it up, and put it back together blindfolded, under duress...


"We Come In Peace" - remix by MODERN-E-QUARTET (Greece)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): While on Facebook, I was contacted by Costas, asking me if we want to collaborate. With We Come In Peace yet to be remixed, I suggested they tackle this one. Using mainly electronic string, at the time they were still known as The Athens Arts Ensemble.

Costas Anastassopoulos (Modern-e-Quartet): To arrange “We Come In Peace” from Terminatryx, Modern-e-Quartet used electric violin, electric cello, synthesizers and drums. We recorded the piece at PitAssbil’s Studio (edited and mastered at Studio19 in Athens, Greece). Those instruments created all sound effects, distortions, etc. Only voices and one sonar effect from the original Terminatryx song was retained. Inspired by the basic voices theme, Modern-e-Quartet introduced their own musical version.
Valia TK : synthesizers / Costas Anastassopoulos : electric violin / Christopher Humphrys : electric cello / Pit Assbill : drums


"Up To You" - remix by NuL (South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): When picking someone to take on Up To You, the Aggro-Tech / Industrial flavour of Nul was our first choice.

Adriaan Pelzer (Nul): Inspired by the brilliant textural intensity of Sonja’s vocals, we started fucking with her voice in every possible way. The entire song was built up by extending these bits of warped vocals with electronic textural elements, and adding it to the straight, four to the floor beat. The rest just kind of fell into place by itself. The original is a brilliant song, and all the elements marry each other very well ... which made our job very easy.


"The Love Song" - Not A Love Song remix by JEKYLL & HYDE (South Africa)

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): Staying in tune with trying to get a wide variety of remixers together, we wanted to get a Trance take in there as well. So we contacted an old friend of mine, Gregg Subsonic Nutter (Death-Metal drummer turned Trance DJ) to give it a go, which has ended up as one of the few Jekyll & Hyde collaborations seeing the light of day.

Gregg Subsonic (Jekyll & Hyde): The track was chopped up in Cubase then re-created using modern trance techniques using a trance kick and bass. Predator, Virus & Vanguard VST synths were used to create synth sounds, plus samples and percussion. I chopped out vocals from The Love Song and also included the wind instrument intro of the Terminatryx instrumental Absinthium.
Since then Jekyll & Hyde have totally gone our separate ways...

"Siek+Sat" - remix by BATTERY 9 (South Africa)
English translation: "Sick+Tired"

Sonja Ruppersberg (Terminatryx): The SA landscape in the early ‘90s, with the exception of bands like V.O.D was (in my opinion) a sad state of affairs. But then out of the blue came the Industrial strength machine of Battery 9, and it annihilated everything boring and drab in its path. The first time I saw them live was at the Kaktus op die Vlaktes at the first KKNK - I could not even remember any of the other bands on stage that night. Finally there was something on the SA music scene that I could relate to and I made sure to catch them every time they came to the “Slaap Stad”.
Battery 9 stands out as one of the most innovative and original groups in SA and what an honour to have "Siek+Sat" remixed by Paul Riekert. Let the Industrial Revolution continue!

Paul Riekert (Battery 9): I love distilling things, and doing a remix is the perfect opportunity. I listened to "Siek+ Sat" until I knew the song, and identified the parts that excite me most, culled them from the original tracks, and made a "new" song from those parts. I'm also a sucker for repetition. Most songs have too many parts for my liking, and once I have the distilled ingredients, I repeat them mercilessly. Halving (or in this case, "quartering") the original drum track's tempo had some interesting results, to my ear it made everything else sound heavier.
I always try to cook up something new with the ingredients, adding a pinch of my own muti, but at the same time respect the artist(s) - staying true to the vibe of the original track.

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): Having known Paul Riekert for over a decade as a fellow alternative music mind, it was no sweat to get him to commit to remixing a song. Initially we thought of having him do CONsume (since Battery 9 also has a track with the same title), but we left the track choice up to him, and to our delight, he wanted to do Siek+Sat (our Afrikaans track), giving it that unique Battery 9 flavour.


"Absinthium" - remix by MR. SAKITUMI (South Africa)

Sean Ou Tim (Mr Sakitumi): After going through all the bits of the original, it was the synth line that grabbed me and inspired me to build the rest of my remix. It sets up the anticipation of what I envisioned as an epic battle, futuristic or medieval. The duduk and flute parts of the original (played by Simon "Fuzzy" Ratcliffe) serve as the call to arms, the drumming as the charge and the guitars as the inevitable clash in battle. I approached this remix as a kind of soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist yet.

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): Musical genius Sean Ou Tim has played in loads of bands and can handle any instrument. He is also part of our Makabra Ensemble live movie soundtrack project. We wanted someone exceptional to tackle the moody Absinthium instrumental (which also features flute and upright bass by Simon Fuzzy Ratcliffe, another Makabra Ensemble member, Sean’s fellow Lark bandmate, and mixer of the Terminatryx debut album).


"Obsession" - cover version by TERMINATRYX (South Africa) - Bonus Track

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): When it came to our first cover version, it had to be an ‘80s classic. We wanted to give Obsession (written by Michael Des Barres & Holly Knight, and popularized by Animotion) song our TERMINATRYX stamp, and redo the song as is, transposing it to our style without trying to go overboard in both intensity, or changing any of its basic elements and structure. We did switch the dual lead vocals to be exclusively female (with some heavier male backing). Programming & vocals were recorded at Flamedrop (extra programming by iRONic), with guitars, bass & live drums recorded & mixed at Theo Crous’ Bellville Studios (plus his additional guest rhythm guitar). The final mix went through his analogue desk.


"Maciste Descends" - The Makabra Ensemble (South Africa) - Bonus Track

Paul Blom (Terminatryx / The Makabra Ensemble): In 2005 Sonja and I created the annual South African HORRORFEST Film Festival (over Halloween season). Along with it we set the stage to create new original soundtracks for classic silent horror movies, and perform it live beneath the screen. This Terminatryx-driven project also includes diverse musical collaborators Sean Ou Tim, Simon “Fuzzy” Ratcliffe and Matthijs Van Dijk, and collectively utilise everything from guitars, bass, voice and keyboards, to electric violin, programming, drums, percussion and the theremin to breathe new life into legendary silent movies.

Sonja Ruppersberg (Terminatryx / The Makabra Ensemble): Each year’s sold out Makabra Ensemble performance is for a different movie, and have included Nosferatu (released with its new soundtrack on the "Terminatryx / Nosferatu" DVD), The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari, Haxan, Maciste In Hell, and The Phantom Of The Opera. Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is set for the 2011 HorrorFest. All of these will be released on DVD in due course.
"Maciste Descends" is one of Paul & my compositions from the Italian movie Maciste In Hell (Maciste all' inferno), and is the scene where the title character is tricked and hurled into hell.


"Siek+Sat" - TERMINATRYX Undead On Speed remix (South Africa) - Bonus Track

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): "Siek+Sat" is our first song in Afrikaans (one of our 11 official South African languages - derived from Dutch). The original version is one of our faster tunes, but I reckoned, why not speed it up even more and end this collection of alternative Terminatryx tracks off with a bang!
Sonja loathes this version...!

Terminatryx Biography:

In 2002 Paul Blom and Sonja Ruppersberg created Terminatryx - blending their eclectic love of hard- and electronic music, with that of the moods created by Sci-Fi / Horror / Extreme movies, perceptions of the world around them, and a touch of sexually charged danger to initialize their own dark-edged Industrial-Rock movement, something of which there is a short supply in South Africa.
In the first few years of the band’s existence they cultivated and sculpted their sound, systematically shaping these creations, encapsulating the fusion-, symbiosis and corruption of man and technology, illustrating and supplementing it with a wide range of moods and subjects, from socio-political and protest grievances, the media and consumerism, to alien visitation, biological- and digital infection etc. A strong sense of individuality, free speech- & choice filters throughout. Reacting on the state of the world (and beyond), there is no mincing of words.

With a dark blend of female-fronted, Industrial-infused Metal-scapes, Terminatryx is an anomaly and a unique sound with many musical elements subtly filtering through across diverse songs, from Alternative, Hardcore and Punk flavors to Electronic, Darkwave and Gothic hints across the mood-laden and energetic songs.

With the striking Sonja on lead vocals, the other key component of the Terminatryx collective is Paul (also member of South Africa’s most influential Metal band V.O.D - Voice Of Destruction and former drummer of SA Music Award winners K.O.B.U.S.). Besides song-writing, Paul also handles all musical and production aspects from programming, bass and guitars, to keyboards and backing vocals, with Ronnie Belcher on drums and Patrick Davidson on guitar.
Since its inception, Terminatryx has performed in various cities and at festivals across South Africa, including Oppi Koppi, Ramfest, Rock The River, Noise Fest, Metal for Africa, World Goth Day & more.

Terminatryx was one of four South African bands that performed at a 2006 Popkomm festival showcase in Berlin, Germany and have supported several International acts including VNV Nation (Germany), Sigue Sigue Sputnik Electronic (UK), Sheep on Drugs (UK) and Diary of Dreams (Germany).

The band’s music video “Virus” screened at various film festivals and was awarded Best Music Clip at the 2011 Barossa Film Festival in Australia (and the band also produced an extended short film version, "Marked").
Terminatryx has been the cover feature on Vixxen-, LMG- & Kultur Magazine, and featured on the likes of Kerrang! Radio (UK).

The band is currently working on their next album.
