Minority Sound are a band from Czech Republic that plays a mixture of industrial and death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Explorer" which was released by Metal Gate Records.
"Hostile" which is the first song on the album starts off with some sound effects and spoken word parts before adding in heavy guitar riffs and industrial sounds before adding in some death metal growls and high pitched screams and after awhile melodic vocals and guitar leads start coming into the song.
"Lord Of Destruction" opens up with industrial sound and heavy guitar and bass riffs along with some programmed drum beats which lead up to some black metal screams and deep death metal growls and after a couple of minutes there is a brief use of clean vocals being utilized.
"The Explorer" begins with industrial sounds, programmed beats and heavy guitar and bass riffs along with some synths before adding in some clean singing and a few seconds later screams start kicking in.
"Zealots" kicks off with some synths and programmed beats that bring a gothic industrial sound to the music and a minute later heavy guitar and bass riffs kick in along with some melodic elements before adding in some guitar leads and death metal growls along with some screams a few seconds later.
"Binary Child" hits off industrial style synths, programmed beats and heavy guitars and a few seconds alter aggressive industrial metal vocals kick in along with some growls and after awhile spoken word parts and screams become a part of the song and towards the end there is a brief use of clean singing and melodic guitar leads.
"Wipe Out The Virus" makes its way into the album with noise, ambient and industrial sounds along with some programmed drum beats before adding in some heavy and melodic guitar riffs along with some clean vocals as well as a small amount of aggressive shouts before adding in some death metal influenced vocals.

"The End" which is the last song on the album starts up with industrial and experimental sounds before adding in some drum beats as well as some heavy and melodic guitar riffs which also lead up to some growls along with a small amount of guitar leads and you can also hear some female vocals in the background and halfway through the song synths start to take over.
Song lyrics cover life and social issues, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this album.
In my opinion Minority Sound are a very great sounding hybrid of industrial and death metal along with some black metal influences and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band.
