To celebrate its 16th year of creating Alternative audio and visual experiences, Cape Town’s TERMINATRYX will play a series of shows revealing its many sides, from Cape Town to Gauteng, across July – August 2018.
With Alternative flavours running through Rock, Metal and Gothic, bolted together with an Industrial punch, over the years Terminatryx has made music on their own terms, defying convention and always setting out to do something exciting.
The last year also saw the band go through another evolution, including scaling back to being a three-piece, and plans for a new (but not unfamiliar) expansion of the Terminatryx sound.
Respected for its longevity, across the last 16 years the female-fronted band has released four album, a DVD, various compilations (releases on CD, digital download & streaming, and limited editions incl. LP, cassette, unique USB format).
Terminatryx has performed across South Africa from clubs to festivals, as well as Germany (and selected to open for international acts like Ministry, VNV Nation and Diary Of Dreams).
The band’s high quality music videos have screened at international film festivals and won awards.
