The Legend of the Seagullmen — the nautically themed, "genre-destroying" supergroup featuring Mastodon's Brent Hinds, Tool's Danny Carey, Dethklok's Pete Griffin and others — have shared the eponymous title track from their upcoming self-titled debut album, out February 9th via Dine Alone Records. The band describes it as a "song of an ancient power" from the "time of the Seagullgod King."
Just who is this mysterious "Seagullgod King" fellow, and what's his relation to the song?
"His legend has been transmitted over generations spanning 400 thousand years, resulting in this furious ripping anthem," explains the band. "It takes at least four guitar players and an army of musicians to unlock the glory and when the blistering progressions find the pounding beat, you'll be immersed in the scriptures of a battle torn land."
"The Legend of the Seagullmen" marks the third track to be revealed off the supergroup's inaugural studio effort; it follows "Shipswreck" and "The Fogger." Pre-order the album here.
