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, Häxan, Maciste In Hell, The Phantom Of The Opera. Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Metropolis, and The Hunchback Of Notre Dame. 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.

With a dark blend of female-fronted Alternative / Industrial / Metal / Rock flavours, Terminatryx is an anomaly with an unexpected and invigorating sound.
