Mixing doom, post-rock/metal, progressive rock/metal, and touches of drone and ambient, Into Orbit create textured instrumental journeys that are nuanced and layered, as well as memorable and instantly satisfying. The music is atmospheric and has an emotive core, while also being heavy and immediate when it wants to be.
The songs are well-crafted and show that the band are simply becoming more absorbing in what they do. The structuring and dynamics of this music is such that it takes from the above sub-genres and uses what it deems necessary at any given point to create music that ebbs and flows very well across the 44-minute playing time. Never ones to show off at the expense of a song, the band can certainly play, but this is always subservient to creating music that evokes feelings and moods in the listener. Into Orbit write songs, not just vehicles for their musicianship.
Kinesis is compelling and involving from the very start, and sustains this across the full running time. Sounding both heavier and softer, as well as fuller and more well-rounded, Kinesis is an extremely high quality record in all regards.
Very highly recommended.
