Welcome to our TERMINATRYX "Shadow" campaign!
As an independent band based in South Africa, playing original music from our souls for the last 10 years, it is no easy task getting a project like this off the ground...
We'll be taking on our second studio album (and our 5th release to date) and need your help to make it a reality - your contributions rewarded with amazing perks, from pre-release downloads, autographed CDs, body piercing and tattoos, to custom Terminatryx coats, guitars, executive producer credit, private shows & much more.
To get things rolling, we've made the album's title tracks available to you, for free on Soundcloud! Once you've checked out the rest of this campaign, head down to https://soundcloud.com/terminatryx/terminatryx-shadow-pre-release
This mood-laced track will be complimented on the album by a few songs similar in tone, plus songs exploding with energy and speed, some a little more Metal, others a little more Industrial, while some will lead down different exciting paths including cinematic directions. Mediocrity will never be a factor.
For asn additional taste of what to excpect, the new song "Scars" features in the pitch video above.
With the delectable Sonja on lead vocals, the band fuses an exciting range of Alternative styles from Industrial and Metal, to Gothic and Electronic, retaining the ability to create catchy songs within a powerful musical structure and genre styles. Together with a darkly appealing image and amazing music videos, the band is set apart from most other Rock acts in South Africa.
(By the way, in case you weren't sure, you pronounce the band's name: "Terminaytricks")
Always fighting the independent fight since the band's genesis in 2002, when the Terminatryx self-titled debut album landed (in 2008) it was unlike anything one would expect to come from South Africa.
This was followed by a DVD including a range of Terminatryx video material, plus the full length classic silent vampire film Nosferatu, featuring a new, original soundtrack created for the film by Terminatryx and collaborative musician friends (recorded live at the South African HorrorFest Film Festival).
The band also spearheaded and compiled "Kopskoot!" (translated: Headshot) - the first ever compilation featuring bands of various heavy genres who sing in Afrikaans.
In 2011 the much anticipated "Remyx v 1.0" album was released - another bold step not many artists take on, being the remixing of the entire debut album by international and local remixers (plus wild bonus tracks).
The 2013 "Shadow" studio album is set to be another bold step in the evolution of an independent band that refuses to be dictated to by trends, creating their own original music with impact, substance, emotion, mood and power.

As with everything one undertakes in life, you want to outdo what you've attempted before, and that is exactly what Terminatryx wants to accomplish with this new album - and blow everyone away who listens to it, whether it falls within their musical taste or not.
To record this new album to the best of our ability, we're calling on our current and new supporters to join us in bringing the next chapter of our musical journey that we share with you, to the ears of those who appreciate real Alternative music.
As you know, the mechanisms of the music industry has changed drastically. While home recording facilities have become more affordable, there are certain production aspects when it comes to creating music with impact that cannot always be reached in a home set-up... So, in order to do that we've entered Bellville Studios with co-producer Theo Crous, set to create an album of sonic superiority. Theo has played in well known award winning South African bands like Springbok Nude Girls and K.O.B.U.S., and produced a wide range of successful bands like Prime Circle and The Parlotones. While Terminatryx is vastly different from these bands, Theo has a good grasp of the Terminatryx ethos, sound and goal.
In order to make this album the epic production we envision, there will naturally be cost involved, from production and mastering, to CD pressing and promotion.
Any additional funds raised beyond the campaign goal will be utilised for music video production, essential equipment, tour cost, etc.
For your assistance in making this album a reality, there are some exciting perks attached to the various funding brackets.
These include everything from pre-release downloads accessed before anyone else, autographed CDs, and exclusive ltd. ed. T-shirts, to high tea at the Mount Nelson, custom Terminatryx coats from Wolf Clothing, WildFire tattoos & body piercings, Terminatryx decal Jackson guitars from Bothners, private live performances, executive producer credit and much more!
(Please note, the "Join Us!" $500 perk was cut short, and should include an authentic live set-list, autographed by the band).
The PayPal option is now also activated.
All perks include our undying love & appreciation.
Postage & packaging where applicable (excluding any Wolf Clothing orders - their T's & C's will be forwarded to you / for custom coat perks, special measurements will be arranged).
For any perks based in and around the Cape Town area (incl. Wildfire piercings and tattoos), anyone outside of that geographic location is responsible for their own transport, accommodation etc. (WildFire perks are transferrable to a friend in South Africa).
Thanks so much for taking the time to check out our campaign, and helping us to be true to what we do best - making music that we would like to stand the test of time.
Please spread news of this via the social media links at the top of the page, or any other way.
We can't wait to finish our "Shadow" album, and can't wait for you to hear it!
