Holy 04:10
TERMINATRYX - HOLY Lay the blame - it's the easiest position Pre-conceptions lead to narrow definitions Your interpretations are all written down in stone Ignorance in numbers - a Dystopia of drones (Chorus) Continue the same old song Don't care if the words can harm The lyrics will hit the spot Fuel for the murder plot Labeled mysterious, dark, evil and serious Burn witches at the stake Holy is the new fake Just be a part of the general condition Part of the flock with the same old disposition Suffer the pain of human pre-condition Sadly a part of the previous edition (Chorus) Lay the blame it's the easiest position Preconceptions lead to narrow definitions Your interpretations are all written down in stone Ignorance in numbers - a Dystopia of drones (Chorus) Holy is the new fake

Scars 04:36
TERMINATRYX - SCARS Let the pain subside And the memories fade Let the trauma divide The price that you paid Blades and fire - Bullets and wire Broken glass - Etched remnants from your past (Chorus) The scars on your skin Are so much harder to hide Than the ones within The marks on your soul Multiply inside Lose your grip and your hold Physical torture - Mental abuse Self-mutilation - War wounds you did not choose Don't lose control Hold on, hold on The scars on your skin Are so much harder to hide Than the ones within The stars will begin To align in your eyes Just as all hope dies Torn to pieces, accidental Fists and nails, boots and teeth Compassion failed, not incidental Degrading words, bring you to your knees Sadistic - Masochistic By another's hand - Or your own Don't lose control Hold on, move on (Chorus) The damage may be healed, But the memories, can still remain Each nerve ending and emotion feels But you can rise, above the pain Let the pain subside And the memories fade Let the trauma divide The price that you paid (Chorus)

Masjien 03:02
TERMINATRYX - MASJIEN (Afrikaans) - see English below (Chorus) Die Masjien marsjeer Deur die land Veslind, verskeur Verwoes, verbrand   Gebore uit gemak Gemaak om ons te dien Die mensdom het verswak Opstand van Masjien   Meganiese revolusie Metaal verwoes die vlees Jou drome net illusie Jou wêreld nou net vrees (Chorus)   Die ratte draai nou sonder end Te laat om dit te keer Die aarde permanent geskend Masjien nou in beheer   Die slaaf is nou die meester Die skepper ‘n dienaar Die sonlig word nou duister Devolusie openbaar   (Chorus) Die Masjien marsjeer… Translated lyrics: MACHINE The Machine marches Across the land Devours, Tears Destroys, Burns Born from comfort Built to serve us Mankind has weakened Rise of the Machine! Mechanical revolution Metal destroys the flesh Your dreams mere illusion Your world is now just Fear The Machine marches Across the land Devours, Tears Destroys, Burns The gears turn without end Too late to make it cease The earth permanently scarred Machine now in charge The slave is now the master The creator the servant The sunlight turns to darkness Devolution revelation The Machine marches Across the land Devours, Tears Destroys, Burns The Machine marches

Shadow 03:50
TERMINATRYX - SHADOW I know you well - my other side I am the light in which you hide You dare to find my inner mind (Chorus) Shadow of my soul, evil is your goal, I can't come back, I’ve gone too far There’s no return, my soul to burn   (Chorus)   And in between - our worlds collide I’m stranded here, I’m on your side There’s no return - eternal night   (Chorus)
6.
Gone 04:15
TERMINATRYX - GONE Standing right here Was the last time I saw you And waiting right here Is the last thing I'll do for you Go I will go and I'll never return Go I will go - I am gone All of this time passing I can't remember Why I would let these things Decide my next move Go I will go and I'll never return Go I will go - I am gone I have waited - For so long I have hated - But now, I'll go I left this place now and I can’t see my way Out of this confusion and out of these shackles That you gave to me, and I've carried your cross Go I will go - I have gone I have waited - For so long I have hated - But now, I'll go With no more tears that are left  To be cried for you So far away It's the last time I'll bleed for you Go I will go and I'll never return Go I will go, I am gone

Purifire 02:32
TERMINATRYX - PURIFIRE I am the PuriFire, I will make you burn No more will you conspire, each one will get their turn With a tongue of flame, I will strip your skin Beaten at your own game, as you pay for your sins   Flagrant violations Every chance you get Continued indiscretions Seems like you’ve lost your bet   Should you go chasing dragons Then expect to get burnt A lesson too late is one That will remain unlearnt   Enter your purgatory Made by your own hand You’ll blaze eternally No use to make a stand   I am the PuriFire   Treat all around you like trash Self-centered narcissist Soon you’re reduced to ash As your own catalyst   You ask where is forgiveness There will be none for you Succumb to your own weakness Your nightmare has come true   I am the PuriFire, I will make you burn No more will you conspire, each one will get their turn With a tongue of flame, I will strip your skin Beaten at your own game, now your pain begins
8.
Nothing 03:40
TERMINATRYX - NOTHING All these places - Saddened faces Finally I have seen, a world not meant for me Nothing will live All these spaces - Empty graces Gestures in nothingness, grey and emotionless No one will give But I'm strong, I am strong - I'll go on. I'll go on, I'll go on - For how long Pained frustrations - Strained relations Just look the other way, as long as you're okay Nothing's amiss Rusted cages - Empty pages Is this the way to live - To hate and not forgive Nothing can live But I'm strong, I am strong - I was wrong I'll go on, I'll go on - Not for long

Medusa 05:18
TERMINATRYX - MEDUSA (Lyrics by Sonja Ruppersberg) I’ve been waiting for this Creature from the dark I’ve been tempting, trying, Looking for its mark So evasive, playing with fire I will find her, I won’t tire For my creature from the dark I’ve been hoping but these feelings are so stark I’ve been blindly finding reasons not to guard So alluring, can’t stop wanting I can’t stop this seed I’m planting For my creature from the dark    (Chorus) Look away her hatred’s lurking She’s been lost and she’s been hurting She will turn your heart to stone Entombed, her eyes are all you know Look away now it’s too late Her reflection turns to hate She will turn you into stone Entombed, her eyes are all you know   I’ve been waiting for this Creature from the dark I’ve been tempting, trying, Looking for its mark So evasive, playing with fire I will find her, I won’t tire For my creature from the dark   I’ve been hoping but these feelings are so stark I’ve been blindly finding reasons not to guard So alluring, can’t stop wanting I can’t stop this seed I’m planting For my creature from the dark (Chorus) I’ve been searching for this Creature from the dark

about

The long awaited new studio album by Cape Town-based female-fronted Alternative / Metal / Industrial-Rock band TERMINATRYX was released 04/04/14.
(Terminatryx pronounced: "Terminaytricks")

"Shadow" music video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTvk-7Zz5rc

Never ones to follow convention, with Terminatryx entering its 12th year, the new album takes the band into yet another realm (following their self-titled debut album; its full remixed version incl. international & local remixers; the Kopskoot! heavy Afrikaans compilation; and the Terminatryx DVD featuring the classic silent vampire film Nosferatu with a new original soundtrack).
This Flamedrop Production was produced by Terminatryx co-founder Paul Blom and the renowned Theo Crous - the duo wanted to add a new dimension of sonic force, yet not diminish the potential accessibility of the songs.
With lead vocalist Sonja Ruppersberg having an equal hand in writing this album’s songs with Paul, her emotional perspective added a great deal to expanding the scope of the new songs that are filled with energy, passion and a drive to transcend the mundane.

Known for being guitarist in bands like Springbok Nude Girls and K.O.B.U.S., and producing acts like Van Coke Kartel, Prime Circle, Parlotones and Dan Patlansky, Theo Crous delved into his heavier roots with this production alongside Paul.
Theo also mixed the “Shadow” album and by recording at his Belville Studios, a warmer analog element was added to the previous digitally dominated recording process of Terminatryx.

> Full album purchase will include the bonus track of Industriezone's fantastic dark "Shadow" remix.
