about

2019 sees Terminatryx in its 17th year. The track 'Destroy' is the first of upcoming Terminatryx music where the band took the decision to go entirely inhouse, from recording to mastering and releasing. This will be a learning curve and it will be interesting to see how things evolve.

'Destroy' is a call to action against the current world order. An urging to those who actively seek to take back their autonomy, to guard and fight against corrupt practices and to reject the current world order. The lyrics not only reflect the current South African context, but also a global context. The listeners are encouraged to make their own decisions, to reject and actively oppose corrupt practices, fear mongering and to not follow blindly.

"Destroy”
Music by Terminatryx
Lyrics by Sonja Ruppersberg

We are the world we are the hostage
Our fate is tied to their control
We are the ones who hold the power
We see the blackness of their souls

Forever tied to their obsessions
Forever doomed out of the light
Bereft of self-realization
Blindfolded we are sent to fight

Get up! Destroy! The fear! The ploy!
Get up! Release! The power! The peace!

We are the pieces on the play field
We are the legion we’re the pawns
Only a movement of the masses
Can take the night into the dawn

Take down the hate take down their leaders
Forsake the hate reject their law
Pick up the cause and join the legion
Become the fire be the thaw

Get up! Destroy! The fear! The ploy!
Set-up! Repeat! Victory! Defeat!

Get up! Destroy! The fear! The ploy!
Get up! Release! The power! The peace!

We are the world we are the hostage
Our fate is tied to their control
We are the ones who hold the power
We see the blackness of their souls

Forever tied to their obsessions
Forever doomed out of the light
Bereft of self-realization
Blindfolded we are sent to fight

We are the pieces on the play field
We are the legion we’re the pawns
Only a movement of the masses
Can take the night into the dawn

Take down the hate take down their leaders
Forsake the hate reject their law
Pick up the cause and join the legion
Become the fire be the thaw

Get up! Destroy! The fear! The ploy!

Get up! Release! The power! The peace!
Set-up! Repeat! Victory! Defeat!
