Our friend and SA alt music legend Paul Riekert (Battery 9) recently had a brush with death after a serious medical crisis.
To help assist with the exorbitant medical cost, we compiled this 3-track FIX THE MACHINE EP consisting of the Afrikaans Terminatryx songs Paul remixed / collabbed on across the years.
1. Masjien-Machine (Sementkop Remix by Battery 9) - From the 2017 Terminatryx "Remix v2.0" album
2. Suiker (special guest vocals by Paul Riekert) - Terminatryx 2020 pre-album single release
3. Siek + Sat (Artillerie Mix by Battery 9) - From the 2011 Terminatryx "Remix v1.0" album
All proceeds from this $9 EP will go towards Paul's medical fund and if you're able to contribute more, it will be greatly appreciated.

Nosferatu DVD film/klankbaan . DVDENT001 2008 ENT ENTERTAINMENT/IRIS
In 1922 German director FW Murnau released Nosferatu - Eine Symphonie des Grauens, his adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, a tale of vampires and immortal love. Together with cinematographer Fritz Wagner they created a cinematic milestone of expressionist filmmaking, mesmerizing audiences well into the next century. The striking unforgettable lead vampire was played by Max Schreck.
In 2005 Paul Blom and Sonja Ruppersberg launched the annual South African Horrorfest Film Festival and at each event include a silent Horror classic film whilst performing a brand new original live soundtrack, created via their Industrial-Metal project TERMINATRYX.
Joining TERMINATRYX on stage were Matthijis Van Dijk (from Dawntreader on violin), Francois Blom (from Kobus! & VOD on programming & keyboards), Simon Ratcliffe (on upright bass, theremin & flute) and Sean Ou Tim (electronic percussion & samples) - the latter two artists both originally from the band Lark.
This special release, features this great new soundtrack together with additional TERMINATRYX material.

The "TERMINATRYX / NOSFERATU" DVD
Five months after the critically acclaimed self-titled TERMINATRYX album release, this unique phenomenon in the South African music scene has again gone an unpredictable route.
The 2-hour "TERMINATRYX / NOSFERATU" DVD is as unconventional as this Cape Town based, female-fronted Industrial-Metal band. The DVD does not only contain music videos, live clips, and photo galleries, but also includes the dark short film imPERFECTION (made by the band and featuring their music).
Besides the engrossing music contained therein, the crown jewel of this distinctive package is the inclusion of the full 1922 silent vampire classic film NOSFERATU, with the new original TERMINATRYX soundtrack as performed live at its 2006 South African HORRORFEST Film Festival screening (with very special guests from the bands LARK, DAWNTREADER, K.O.B.U.S. & V.O.D).
This is the first time an alternative/extreme S.A. band has release a DVD containing a movie with their soundtrack.
The reversible DVD cover allows you to display either TERMINATRYX or Nosferatu.

A NEW BREED OF SOUTH AFRICAN MUSIC
DVD Launch: 20 December @ ROAR, Lower Main Rd., Observatory, Cape Town
(in conjunction with the Path Of Sin fetish calendar launch)
Five months after the critically acclaimed self-titled TERMINATRYX album release, this unique phenomenon in the South African music scene has again gone an unpredictable, unconventional route.
On Halloween 2008 TERMINATRYX released their first DVD, "TERMINATRYX / NOSFERATU". For the first time ever in South Africa an Alternative/Extreme band fuses with an historic cinematic classic.
This 2-hour package does not only contain music videos, live clips, biogs, photo galleries and extras as expected, but also includes the dark short film imPERFECTION (made by the band and featuring their music).

The blend of Industrial soundscapes, ominous vocal moods, and dark energy also includes instrumentation ranging from upright bass, woodwinds, and theremin, to live percussion samples, sound FX, electric violin and metal guitars - breathing new life into this phenomenal, timeless motion picture of vampires and immortal love.
This is the first time a South African band has released a DVD containing a feature film with their soundtrack, furthermore expanding the TERMINATRYX identity as far from lackluster.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PRESS RELEASE May 2008
www.TERMINATRYX.com TERMINATRYX (pronounced: "terminaytrix")
The long awaited TERMINATRYX album is set for a May 2008 release through ENT Entertainment, South Africa - distributed by IRIS (cat. no. CDENT 010).
The TERMINATRYX sound is a unique one in the South African musical milieu with the combination of striking vocalist Sonja Ruppersberg and the music of extreme music veteran Paul Blom (V.O.D, F8, and SAMA winners K.O.B.U.S.) blending into an Industrial-Metal soundscape rarely found in this country.
In addition there are many musical elements subtly filtering through across the diverse songs, from Alternative-, Hard Core- and Punk flavours, to Electronic-, Dark Wave- and Gothic hints.
From the start TERMINATRYX never attempted to sound like anyone out there, developing a sound all their own with inspiration coming from cinematic moods rather than other musical references.
The undercurrent of the fusion-, symbiosis- and corruption of man & technology is illustrated and supplemented with subjects ranging from socio-political issues, individualism & independent thought, consumerism, a critical tirade in Afrikaans, a love song alternative, biological- and viral infection, alien visitation, instrumentals and more.
Reacting on the state of the world (and beyond), there is no mincing of words.
With a natural aversion to cheap commercial sentiments and a blind consumer society, TERMINATRYX is truly a unique South African audio adventure, looking at the world with a satirical eye as they take the listener through a juxtaposed range of sonic intensity and calm, merging technology with the organic in a David Cronenberg vs H.R Giger trip.
Produced by Paul, the track elements were re-recorded in February 2008 at Flamedrop Productions (with many of the original segments recorded since 2003 retained).
All of the songs are original creations with Sonja and Paul also acting as executive producers.
Early March 2008 Paul joined Simon "Fuzzy" Ratcliffe across a 10-day period at Sound & Motion Studios where mixing commenced. The final mastering was done late-March.
Fuzzy also guests on the instrumental track ABSINTHIUM with upright bass and a variety of exotic flutes, adding an organic emotional element to the predominantly electronically programmed backbone of the track.
Another guest includes original guitarist Tom Somers with lead segments on SLEEPWALKERS and WE COME IN PEACE.
Jenna Bird added a few well-placed bars of piano on SIEK+SAT.
A German nursery rhyme narrated by Christina Storm opens the song MIDNIGHT.
Exclusive audio samples of selected new recordings from the album (as well as demo versions) can be heard at these on-line destinations:
SIEK+SAT > www.MyNoise.co.za/terminatryx (the only Afrikaans song - translated as Sick + Tired)
VIRUS > www.MySpace.com/terminatryxxx
CONsume > www.ReverbNation.com/terminatryx
SLEEPWALKERS > www.LoadTheShow.com/show/TERMINATRYX
MIDNIGHT (music video) > www.YouTube.com/terminatryx
The album cover pictures were shot by Graham Abbott (of One Productions), with design, art-direction & post-production by Paul.
The video clip MIDNIGHT is included as an enhanced CD segment on the album (as well as a web link). The video features clips from F.W. Murnau's silent German classic Nosferatu.
TERMINATRYX also created an original soundtrack for Nosferatu with collaborators from Lark, performed live to the screen at the 2006 South African HORRORFEST Film Festival (a DVD of which will be released in October 2008).
At the 2007 Fest they gave The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari the same mood-drenched treatment, while the TERMINATRYX live soundtrack for the 2008 HORRORFEST will be the legendary Häxan (again with special guests - www.HORRORFEST.info)
The Midnight video clip (and others) are also at www.YouTube.com/terminatryx. Two versions can be found here, with either the new audio track or the older demo version.
Album launch shows are set for May 2008:
Flamedrop- & VanniePadaf Productions will host the co-operative Gauteng shows
Friday 30 May at Zeplin's Rock Shack in Centurion (with RUNICA and PLASTICOMA, + DJ SINISTER) - www.zeplins.co.za / www.runica.co.za

CDs and merchandise (incl. T-Shirts) will be on sale at the shows.
While Paul handled all of the album's instrumentation, additional musicians will be incorporated for live shows, with a synched up video projection accompanying the music set to give the audience a unique audio-visual experience.
SONJA: Lead & Backing Vocals
PAUL: Guitars, Bass, Drums & Programming, Keyboards, Backing Vocals
PATRICK: Guitar for live performances
RONNIE: Drums for live performances
In a televised talent show-, and mock reality drenched commercial media decline, TERMINATRYX is not merely a breath of fresh air, but a long awaited new direction out to rattle the cage just enough to make a saturated public stand still and think, "hey, there's more to it than this..." - even if for only a moment.
But as we know, a moment can be a multitude of infinities - depending on the way you look at it.
Foreign distribution and licensing is underway.
