For the first time ever in South Africa an Alternative band fuses with an historic cinematic landmark. The “TERMINATRYX / NOSFERATU” DVD release combines classic German Expressionist film making with the female-fronted stylings of Terminatryx (& highly talented collaborators), a unique phenomenon in the South African music scene.
Besides the engrossing music contained herein, the crown jewel of this distinctive package is the inclusion of the full 1922 silent vampire film NOSFERATU, with the new TERMINATRYX soundtrack as performed live to the screen at the 2006 South African HORRORFEST Film Festival (with very special guests Sean Ou Tim & Simon “Fuzzy” Ratcliffe from LARK, Francois Breytenbach Blom from K.O.B.U.S. & V.O.D, and violin virtuoso Matthijs Van Dijk - also formerly of DAWN TREADER).
The blend of Industrial sound-scapes, ominous vocal moods, and dark energy includes instrumentation ranging from upright bass, flutes & woodwinds, theremin and live percussion, to samples, sound FX, electric violin and metal guitars – breathing new life into this phenomenal, timeless motion picture of vampires and immortal love.
(Since then, this soundtrack project led by Sonja and Paul from Terminatryx, together with Sean and Simon from Lark, and Matthijs, has been dubbed The Makabra Ensemble, with 8 soundtrack created and performed since 2006! - incl. Nosferatu, Haxan, Metropolis, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Phantom Of The Opera, Maciste In Hell, Hunchback Of Notre Dame - all are set for release with their new soundtracks.
Where most releases of Nosferatu usually just include the movie with a basic soundtrack slapped on, here music was composed for each scene, and the 2-hour package also contains Terminatryx music videos, live clips, biogs, photo galleries and other extras like the dark short film imPERFECTION (made by the band and featuring their music).
