Leslie Walters Toxin is an emotionally charged album that takes the listener from raw anger to heartbreaking love. In between, we face personal demons, our own limitations, and disgust towards others and ourselves. To me, the beauty of it lies in the sudden contrast in the lyrics, music, and vocals from 3:12 in Love & Mayhem onward, showing the musical diversity of Minority Sound. Favorite track: Disconnected Sympathy.

Acts of dissonance Of pain and arrogance My mind is set To make you pay Souls in resonance Sound of consequence The target I wanna slay Disintegrate! Stab and pulverize! Let him rot then My ego will arise Incinerate I’ll be demonized Disassemble Kill and realize Deeds of hate I regret nothing I feel for no one I, I regret nothing I, I feel for no one Deeds of hate

Scarecrow 03:44
Like a bloated corpse I mark The deepest point in my sea I fertilize the water cold and dark Sweet putrefaction smells good to me Scarecrow inside me is growing strong He is keeping you away Parasites away Scarecrow inside me is driving me insane He is watching you watching me Everyone I hate Like a piece of rancid flesh I drip The human midden now costumed A mask of sanity I tear down and rip My fossil petrified is ready to exhume

Toxin 04:06
Ancient spirit in a juvenile body Waiting for redemption I am stuck! In the prison of life I can’t find the energy I am losing my mind And you stab Me from behind Toxin You are my toxin Toxin Toxin The misery you took away Can’t match the misery you brought I am done with you I am done with you A crash And I am split in half A crash One step towards death I am done with you It was never true Twisted soul in an abled body Wandering through world Can’t find The value of life You’ve shown me way of thorny roses Bleeding from my eyes A burnt out husk With you inside Inside out Toxin I am addicted addicted addicted to you Toxin you heartless bitch my vicious whore Toxin you’re addicted addicted addicted to me Toxin you want me, you crave me, you need me inside you

Bipolar 04:53
So It came here sooner than expected I am falling up I am rising down And I drown In seas of misery Repeating mistakes now and again Just only fools tend to do And watching myself, doing the same Mirror reflections And condemnations When I see I am torn apart Mind dislocation Way to damnation I am trying I am trying so hard Reality creeping from its lair Reality the most haunting nightmare Reality It caught me off the guard again Anxiety preying on my soul Anxiety takes over control Anxiety it kills my former human self I need some sense to feel the pain I hear the voice now in my brain To try to try to cope with both of myselves

Crawling in darkness wishing to feel the warmth Mental battery’s drained Lost in cold labyrinth, now looking for more I cannot breathe I faint Ice cold memories written in flesh Taken back into life Sick taste of blood in opened gash Refuse, reject the strife Sunlight. Be me! Step inside. My ego! Heat it up and crush Sunlight. Be me! Sunlight begone! Begone! Begone! My skin is burning black The heart is pounding I can stand this pain No more That fire is reality I can see this now My disorder made me blind

If you could see what now I see This mayhem and anarchy My hatred It keeps me down If you could feel what now I feel This pain that might not be real My love It keeps me high What you see is what you get The wolf inside me now is fed I plunder The rest that is left Striding through life hypnotized Precisely focused, scrutinized I wonder What will be next? Life Just a simulation Trust so overrated Rise Above The sky Rise Rise And fall Love & Mayhem It’s Love & Mayhem Love & Mayhem It’s love Feel my heart beating loud. Hear it loud! I have done and I am not proud. Not so proud Forgiveness draws the line carved in spine After all I resign

I am deaf and blind And dead inside My head is sober (and) filled with sorrow What have I found I left behind There will be no more bright tomorrow We used to be sniffing the stars Now a sun lies in between of us Disconnected sympathy is all that remains We are overdosed with light We are overdosed with light Mind is empty now and nobody knows how Hurting injuries, make an amend please My world now turns around, I find the zero ground Disconnected sympathy Just a manner of a speech Real blackened discrepancy Rock bottom I have reached Reality consumes me Now I see the end My confessions no one hears Those things I pretend

Empty Sands 05:23
Will you? Will you take me away? Away From myself Will you? Will you rescue me? Run away with me! Run away! Into the void To empty sands Where all my sins will be redeemed Where I will find my peace Where we will be no more Will you? Will you be the one? To embrace And forget Will you? Will you rescue me Run away with me To empty sands

about

Next album - next topic. Minority Sound like to experiment. Eventhough it might not be an experiment in common sense they like to try what they haven't tried before. And this is the case of Toxin.
The album's topics are mental disorders, addictions, envy, hate and ... love. Love to a woman, love to a man, love to drugs, love to yourself and of course all of its dark sides. It is an album of many genres. Ranging from harsh industrials, through melodic Metal, Death Metal, Thrash Metal to very modern approach and it cannot be put into one specific box. Minority Sound have picked Dan Friml's The Barn studios to record the album. And it happened during 14 cold December days of 2018. Final mix and mastering has been yet again given to a canadian producer Rom di Prisco and the overall sound is once more way ahead of its predecessors. Interesting fact is that all the songs for Toxin were composed quite quickly during 4 month in Fall 2017. That's something unique if we take into account that previous records were composed in a matter of years. Maybe it was given by the mood of the main brain of the band: Otus Hobst who went through a couple of rock-bottom falls and mental breakdowns during 2017. We can say that Toxin is kind of a detox from the negative thoughts. It is about things that simply had to get out and that's what makes this album immediate and emotive. Lyrics were co-written by Tom F. Hanzl, better known as Chymus. Lyrics-wise they really were on the same line with Otus so even this matter takes everything to a new level.
