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.

The 10: Red Black and Green

I was in the process of writing a follow up to my article on Saturday Cartoons of the 80's when I had to make a detour. I've made it known that music is life for me. I was in the mood for some head-nod Hip-Hop. My go-to for that is a 90's group that was pretty much the soundtrack to my teenage years. To this day, I still feel their first three albums are perfect.

ATA Review of AGENDA, Long Beach

Inclusiveness:  It’s what AGENDA is all about, and what makes it a special kind of tradeshow. No matter who you are, you can stand side by side with companies like the Hundreds, 10 Deep, or Chinatown Market and compete with the same.  That’s the draw. 

UnSpotified: We Revisit De La Soul's Unstreamed Masterpiece, Buhloone Mindstate

This group doesn’t talk about how financially solvent they are. They talk about being late on their rent. They talk about letting their parents down and missing them. They talk about letting their friends down. They talk about not judging others who have made different choices. And when Dave says, “I’m the greatest MC in the world,” it’s ironic, it’s self-deprecating.
