Kindred In Blood is Florida-based death metal band Encephalitic Punishment's third album, released on April 23rd 1992. It is notable for being the last album to feature Robert "Ravager" Roener and Ivan Witowski on vocals/bass and rhythm gutiar, respectively, until 1999's Thymos Carcinoma. It also marks the end of a distinct style that resumed with Roener and Witowski's return in 1998; soundwise the band shifted to a more industrial/death metal sound with Omar Espanzo from 1993-1998. It is followed by 1994's A New Era of Death, the first with Omar Espanzo and Kirk Newman.

The album is regarded as a stylistic continuation from its predecessors, 1989's Beyond The Grave and 1990's Xenophyllic, seeing an amalgam of the straight-forward death metal of Beyond with the technical elements of Xenophyllic. The song "Metal Skin, Human Heart" is inspired by the 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgement Day. It was sucessful like its predecessor and spawned a tour, World In Blood Tour (1992-1993), whereafter Rob Ravager decided to leave the band for a break. Ivan Witowski also decided to leave after the tour's end.
