In 2002 Paul Blom and Sonja Ruppersberg protested against the barrage of pandering radio-pop, commercial love songs and second rate American Hip-Hop imitations in their native country of South Africa, by creating TERMINATRYX – blending their eclectic love of Alternative, harder 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 Alternative / Industrial-Rock movement, something of which there is a short supply in this beautiful, sunny country with a dark and bloody history.

Since then they cultivated and sculpted their sound, systematically shaping these creations, encapsulating the fusion-, symbiosis- and corruption of man & technology, illustrating and supplementing it with a wide range of moods and subjects, from the duality of man, socio-political & protest grievances, the media & consumerism, to alien visitation, an alternative to the traditional love song, a critical tirade, biological- and digital infection, emotional matters, mythical creatures, relationships and impacting instrumentals. The band also includes one track per album in one of their local languages, Afrikaans. A strong sense of individuality, emotional consciousness, free speech, and free choice filters throughout. Reacting on the state of the world (and beyond), there is no mincing of words.

Categorization has been difficult with the band’s dark blend of female-fronted, electronically infused Industrial Metal-scapes, but in addition there are many musical elements subtly filtering through across the diverse songs, from Alternative-, Hard Core- and Punk flavours, to Electronic-, Dark Wave- and Gothic hints.

With the enticing 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 SAMA-winners K.O.B.U.S. Besides songwriting, Paul also handles all musical and production aspects from programming, guitars and bass, to keyboards and backing vocals.

TERMINATRYX is completed by drummer Ronnie Belcher (Gramlich), and guitarist Patrick Davidson (Mind Assault).

In addition, Sonja and Paul are also involved in video production (creating most of the band’s striking music videos), and are the creators and directors of the South African HORRORFEST Film Festival. With their MAKABRA ENSEMBLE project they create original soundtracks for classic silent horror / sci-fi / thriller films, performing it live to the screen with collaborators Matthijs Van Dijk, Simon Ratcliffe and Sean Ou Tim (incl. Nosferatu, The Cabinet Dr. Caligari, Häxan, Maciste In Hell, Metropolis and others).

Across the band’s 12 year lifespan, they’ve released their self-titled debut album, its full remixed version “Remyx v1.0” (feat. international and local remixers), the “Terminatryx / Nosferatu” DVD including the full silent vampire classic with its new soundtrack, the “Kopskoot!” heavy Afrikaans compilation, and now (on 04 / 04 / 14) the latest studio album “Shadow” co-produced by Paul Blom and the renowned Theo Crous, taking the band into a new realm on their musical journey, from its sonic scope, through to the song-writing.

It is time for this unique force to burst from its South African chains and infiltrate the rest of this rotten peach of a planet!

    In 2002 Paul & Sonja kicked against the barrage of pandering radio-pop, commercial love songs and second rate American Hip-Hop imitations in their native country of South Africa, by creating TERMINATRYX – blending their 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 this beautiful, sunny country with a dark and bloody history.In the early stages they slowly cultivated and sculpted their sound, becoming one of the most unique bands on the South African scene.
    Their acclaimed debut album was followed by their “Terminatryx / Nosferatu” DVD which also contained the full, classic 1921 NOSFERATU vampire movie, but with their brand new, original soundtrack.
    This soundtrack project (with collaborators Sean, Simon and Matthijs) was dubbed The Makabra Ensemble, and have written & performed many live soundtracks to silent classics, in addition to Nosferatu – Haxan, Maciste In Hell, Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari, Phantom Of The Opera. Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.Released in December 2011, “Remyx v1.0”: the ambitious and genre-bending full remixed version of the debut album – with remixers including Martin Degville from Sigue Sigue Sputnik, with Lloyd Price (UK), Industriezone (Austria), Sheep On Drugs (UK), The Awakening, (USA / RSA), Modern-e-Quartet (Greece), and from South Africa: Battery 9, Mr Sakitumi, Axxon, NuL, iRONic, Jekyll & Hyde. The collection will also include a Terminatryx acoustic rendition, a cover version of Animotion’s classic ’80s song Obsession, and a track from the Terminatryx-driven live movie soundtrack project The Makabra Ensemble.2014 saw the releae of the much anticipated new album “Shadow” (co-produced by Paul Blom & Theo Crous) – propelling the band into a new realm, both sonically and with their songwriting.
