about

Sonja Ruppersberg (Terminatryx): The song Midnight has a very special place in my heart; as the first writing contribution to the Terminatryx album. I wanted this song to land in the hands of someone very special and the most obvious choice was Ashton of The Awakening. My years as a serious Goth started out at the Purple Turtle in the mid-‘90s. The most magical evening that I recall was going to see The Awakening, Ashton had a packed venue in the palm of his hand. I was also blown away when I was lucky enough to see them on their Wham Bam Glam tour. Ashton has always had the ability to re-invent himself but to stay true to his roots. Unfortunately for us The Awakening is now based in Chicago (USA, but the remix came alive through e-mails and sending tracks via the Internet. I am extremely grateful to Ashton and the Awakening for this incredible remix as it is one of my favourites, and I’m very happy that it is included on this album.

Ashton Nyte (The Awakening): With this remix my intention was to highlight what I most enjoyed about the song, which included emphasizing its solid industrial groove undercurrent. Being a fan of light and shade, I added a few drops of melodrama and allowed a few more empty spaces to creep into the mix. Hopefully this gives the song a little more space to breathe without losing its dance floor appeal. All in all, the point was to have fun with a cool track and hopefully bring something to the party in doing so.

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

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
