Sounds of the Animal Kingdom is the fourth studio album by grindcore band Brutal Truth. This album features a more varied style than previous albums, displaying the band's typical grindcore and death metal sound fused with elements of doom metal, stoner rock, crust punk, experimental rock, and elements of other genres.

The album's closing track "Prey" is actually a few seconds of "Average People" which repeats for 22 minutes, gradually becoming louder. On the vinyl release of the album, the song (instead of being stretched out to 22 minutes) is contained within a locked groove; which as a result makes the 2-second “song” loop infinitely until the listener lifts the record player’s needle.

A remastered version that includes the 1996 mini-album Kill Trend Suicide was released in 2006. It is Brutal Truth's last album to feature Brent McCarthy.
