TERMINATRYX co-founders Paul & Sonja were guests on The Wrong Rock Show, Monday 10 March 2014,
and alternated with host Greg Donnelly in spinning a selection of their personal music choices (from '80s classics like Gary Numan and Adam & The Ants,
through to the likes of Marilyn Manson, Tom Waits, Rammstein, Beastie Boys, Slayer, and The Prodigy). Greg played an exciting range of songs from David Lynch to Lydia Lunch.
4 Terminatryx songs were played, including the world radio premieres of the songs "Holy" and "Gone", from the new album "Shadow" (released late-March 2014).

"SCARS"
TRACK RECORDING SESSIONS FOR UPCOMING NEW TERMINATRYX ALBUM !


Terminatryx in the studio
R - L : Sonja (Terminatryx vocals) and Theo (engineer / producer)

Early January 2013 Paul & Sonja entered Bellville Studios with Theo Crous to record the new track "Scars"
(set to appear on the next full length album)

Thursday 3 January:
Worked on some string / synth arrangements and bass lines underneath the imported Pro Tools demo session of the song.
(Head out to a workshop with Theo to check out the new spray job on his Lamborghini).
Towards the end of the first day, we also laid down Sonja's guide vocal track for the song, which can in fact be
retained as backing to the main vocal (to be recorded 15 Jan).

Friday 4 January:
Paul and Theo incorporated some rhythm guitar tracks, and considered the song's structure and key,
and whether it should be shifted up... Used both Paul's Epiphone Les Paul shape flame-job guitar, and the
studio's white Gibson Explorer.
Paul lay down live drums to be blended with the programmed beats for more punch.

Friday 15 January:
F
inished tracking all the instruments - last bits included lead & backing vocals, a few guitar leads & distorted bass guitar
(on Paul's 4-string Hohner / Steinberger) .
While constantly tweaking as the sessions progressed, Theo will now shape and mix the rest of it. First mix expected soon!


(An in-studio video is in the works which will feature clips of the process and the song with interviews).


Check out some studio pix at the Facebook Gallery

Pre-production continues on the rest of the new album's songs.
