EDITORS’ NOTES

The Kindred’s metamorphosis from metalcore to progressive metal reaches a conclusion on Weight. The bulk of the EP’s sparkling melodic work is anchored by Johnny McArthur’s urgent cry, which veers from vulnerable falsetto on the piano-laden “Stray Away” to acrobatic expressions of longing and desire on the rhythmically complex “Saint.” The band’s intertwined guitars scream throughout, but as the symphonic “Wake” shows, their swirled textures stand out just as much as their searing solos.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.
