about

Born from vocalist Sonja's many years in the Cape Town Gothic community, this is her love letter to an ever shrinking sub-culture (all with a vampiric slant). After a wolf's howl and the hypnotic rolling beat is introduced, a German nursery rhyme narration by guest Christina Storm opens the song.

lyrics

The sky's bruised black - The sun drips blood
It's setting in - a sea of mud

Beyond the cracks - born & bred
To induce heart attacks
Vampiria arise from death
Caked eyes and last night's blood on their breath

At midnight they will fall from grace
The last two of their morbid race
They want to feed on lust and drugs
And start the night with lines and hugs

You do me first – Time is no issue
I’ll tie your boots – No rule of thumb
As we get dressed – The residue
In our ghastly suits – Of what’s to come

My corset – Pull your strings
Your boots – Tuck me in
My make-up – Translucent masks
Your roots – Each designated task

Swaying angles dressed in black
Venture out for another snack

Pavement princesses relinquish to none
Get their fill before the morning comes

We walk but we are so undead
About to paint this small town red
Elegantly we fall from grace
The last remnants our little race

The sky’s bruised black - The sun drips red
It’s setting in, a sea of mud
Beyond the cracks – born & bred
Their nourishment – your precious blood

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