about

This pre-album song release of "Suiker" (translated: Sugar) will be the Afrikaans track on the upcoming new (as yet untitled) Terminatryx album, and is the third (pre-release) single which was produced and recorded by the band entirely in-house (following "Destroy" and "Blame").

"Suiker" is a blend of lust, addiction and vampirism.

The song features South African Industrial Godfather Paul Riekert on guest vocals.

With each of the new Terminatryx songs receiving a skull design along the same parameters, this "Suiker" image is a Dr-Benway manipulation of an image of vocalist Sonja.
Here the image dictated the song in stead of vice versa - Paul (Blom) wanted to have a sugar skull / day of the dead image for a song amid the skull variation options, and wanted Ronnie to do it in his tattoo style.
At a rehearsal they also joked about calling it "Suiker" (Sugar), and Ronnie ran with it, created the basis for the literal interpretation, which expanded into the final track.

Paul also felt the song had a Battery 9 vibe, so he asked its mastermind Paul (Riekert) if he'd be keen to join in on guest vocals... One of Sonja's heroes, she was elated when he agreed to do so!

lyrics

TERMINATRYX - SUIKER
(Lyrics by Sonja Ruppersberg & Ronnie Belcher)
- See English translation below -

Suiker Suiker Suiker
Suiker Suiker
Gee my

Suiker Suiker Suiker
Gee my Suiker
Suiker
Vir my

In die donker het ons oë ontmoet
Ek’s vasgevang deur die geur van jou bloed
Daar's geen rede om dit te verhoed
Ek is seker jy proe soeter as soet
  
Nog ‘n bietjie meer want dit proe so goed
Dieper in jou are soos die rooi in jou bloed
Keer op elke keer want dit word net meer soet
En nader aan die uur waar die duiwel woed
 
Suiker Suiker Suiker
Suiker Suiker
Gee my

Suiker Suiker Suiker
Gee my Suiker
Suiker
Vir my
 
Soos die maan verdwyn en waar die son nou sit
Le jou liggaam leweloos en leliewit
In die oggendskadu waar ek nou verdwyn
Sal ek weer vannag vir my suiker verskyn
 
Nog ‘n bietjie meer want dit proe so goed
Dieper in jou are soos die rooi in jou bloed
Keer op elke keer want dit word net meer soet
En nader aan die uur waar die duiwel woed

Gee my Suiker
Gee my Suiker
Gee my Suiker

Gee my Suiker
Gee my Suiker
Vir my


SUIKER English Translation (by Paul Blom):

Sugar Sugar Sugar
Sugar Sugar
Give me

Sugar Sugar Sugar
Give me Sugar
Sugar
For me

In the darkness our eyes met
I'm trapped by the smell of your blood
There's no reason to avoid it
I'm sure you taste sweeter than sweet

Just a little more because it tastes so good
Deeper in your veins like the red in your blood
Each and every time because it only gets sweeter
And closer to the hour where the devil dwells

Sugar Sugar Sugar
Sugar Sugar
Give me

Sugar Sugar Sugar
Give me Sugar
Sugar
For me

As the moon disappears and where the sun now sits
Your body lies lifeless and lily white
In the morning hours where I disappear
Tonight I will appear again for my sugar

Just a little more because it tastes so good
Deeper in your veins like the red in your blood
Each and every time because it only gets sweeter
And closer to the hour where the devil dwells

Give me sugar
Give me sugar
Give me sugar

Give me sugar
Give me sugar
For me
