Sax virtuoso Colin Stetson’s avant garde metal project EX EYE is releasing its self-titled debut tomorrow (June 23) via Relapse, and today they’ve shared a stream of the record. The experimental effort features four tracks fusing jazz and metal sounds and showcasing the band’s stacked lineup, which sees drummer Greg Fox (Liturgy), keyboardist Shahzad Ismaily (Secret Chiefs 3, Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog) and guitarist Toby Summerfield joining Stetson.
