4.0 excellentTheManMachine | October 20th 17

This metal-meets-sax instrumental quad squad is triumphant and terrifying, patient and pulverizing. They're post-y without too much draggage, fuck with the structures but still gorgonize ya groove-wise, atmospherically affecting whether on a slow+spacy stretch or blisteringly BM-squallin' the night away or an intermingling of those things. Starts off safely-n-studiously enough; but the following two 12-minute epics allow em to rave up and develop and wondrously wander into all-encompassing oblivions. Which brings me to saxman Colin Stetson's application of trademark squawks throughout: able to add a symphonic flutter, convince you Godzilla is not only present but looking in your window, and become a vital and haunting voice all on its own.

Is it black metal? Is it post-metal? Is it jazz? Who cares? This is awesome.

3.5 greatcjbizzlebizzle | November 10th 17

Ex Eye is an instrumental amalgamation of sax, synth, guitars and drums playing an ill-defined mixture of jazz and metal (black, prog, sludge). Ex Eye do not need a singer and the imagination of a singer over the music makes you realize they stand strong and are probably better off without one. Where many instrumental metal bands feel rather dry without vocals Ex Eye strives with deep musical content, strong/epic ebbs and flows and a perfectly balanced sax performance. Colin Stetson fits in so well with the rest of the musicians as the sax is neither bluntly in the foreground or cast aside to be only atmospheric. The dark music overall is repetitive, seemingly purposefully, as it drives forward intensely but also has a creepy trance inducing, calming feeling to it.
