Take Brent Hinds (Mastodon), Danny Carey (Tool), Pete Griffin (Dethklok), Jimmy Hayward (Toy Story animator, director of Horton Hears a Who and Jonah Hex) and the mysterious David “The Doctor” Dreyer and you are looking at a band called Legend Of The Seagullmen. The inclusion of Hinds and Carey might prompt some to toss around the ‘supergroup’ moniker. But while Legend Of The Seagullmen is definitely a group, I failed to find anything super on their eponymous debut.


‘Legend Of The Seagullmen’ comes with eight songs that are strung together to form a nautical rock opera that tells the legend of the seagullmen. Along the way we get treated to lots of cheesy riffs, not so good choruses and lyrics that go on about ancient powers, orcas that never sleep and how x marks the spot while ship decks creak, winds blow and seagulls… well, do whatever it is that seagulls do.


It all pretty much sounds like something these dudes cooked up one night while on a bar crawl. And honestly, it would have been better if it had been forgotten about the next day.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
