Awesome Totally Awesome - Legend of The Seagullmen

Concert Review Legend of The Seagullmen: The Roxy, Hollywood

The Legend of the Seagullmen (Seagullmen) is a furious and heavy supergroup consisting of Danny Carey (Tool), Brent Hinds (Mastodon), Pete Griffin (Dethlok), Jimmy Hayward (Toy Story animator and director of Horton Hears a Who and Jonah Hex), singer, David Dreyer, synth master, Chris DiGiovanni, and guitarist Tim Dawson.  Their self-titled debut album consists of dark and heavy, psychedelic, and evil pirate metal anthems all revolving around the deep dark sea.

In their own words, The Legend of the Seagullmen tell Kerrang, “We are the very men who have been anointed by the Seagullgod King to deliver pure rock fury and save you from the deep dark depths.  Fifty-foot mutant deep sea divers, enraged giant squid and bloodthirsty killer Orcas are on their way and nothing stands between you and a certain briny death but the Seagullmen! BOW DOWN AND FOREVER BASK IN THE GLORY OF THE SEAGULLGOD KING.”

ATA had the opportunity to see The Seagullmen at their first Los Angeles show, at the Roxy and it was glorious.

Dressed in evil seagull masks and pirate gear, the Seagullmen took the stage and blew minds with their melodic and heavy rhythms, chanting vocals, and complex instrumentation.

Singer, David Dreyer mesmerized the crowd with his sardonic but confident style and devil’s growl. Danny Carey was a beast.  Chris DiGiovanni’s keyboards were terrifying. Brent Hinds and his trio of guitarists were powerful and intricate.  Peter Griffin was heavy as fuck.  At times the entire band was an unrepentant wall of sound.

They performed their entire album front to back.  Check out the highlights here and judge for yourself.
