The best kept secret in music


"Beerland show review"

...Sea of Thousand quickly started, sharply contrasting the first act. The singer never stood on stage but mingled with the crowd in true punk style. I love this band. They go from sludge rock to atonal to hardcore in a matter of a few measures. They keep it interesting to say the least. I’ve seen them before and I always get a very ominous feeling when I hear them. It’s like they play the music that marches us all to our doom and they’re laughing the whole way. - Rank and Revue

"Pedal to the Metal"

Another fantastic group from the area is Sea of Thousand. Hailing from Austin, these guys are living legends in the ever expanding realm of hardcore throughout the U.S. With a hard hitting rock’n’roll vibe, Sea of Thousand present their latest limited edition seven inch on didiediemond records (, Included on the seven inch are the songs Death-Obsessed ‘til Death and Press the Flesh. Raw, melodic (in a bone crushing way), and unrelenting, these songs are composed greatly and exhibit this band’s talent, creativity, and diversity. For your information, Craig is also the best vocalist in the extreme music world – it is a proven fact. This release is a must have for collectors that collect good music. Don’t fret if the 200 pressings run out, the tunes are on a three song CD. - The Edge Magazine

Feeling a bit camera shy


In 2002 Sea of Thousand rose like a phoenix from the ashes of seminal Robotic Empire and Relapse Records' band Employer, Employee. With Joey and Craig from EE on guitar and vocals, and Keith on drums, Sea of Thousand took form. The lineup was completed with the later additions of Derek on bass and Tommy from No Idea's Dragbody and Volcom's Places to Park on second guitar.

With this solid lineup of like-minded musicians, Sea of Thousand has one simple goal in mind: to write blisteringly heavy songs with unique structures and melodies that the listener can easily rock out to at a show or in their car, yet listen to with headphones on at home and hear something new each time. By incorporating elements of various genres into their songs (hardcore, metal, sludge, doom, straight-up rock, and even international music) Sea of Thousand has developed a sound that is almost genre-defying, yet familiar and accessible to fans of all types of heavy music.

Armed with this ideal, and through self-promotion of a demo CD, 7" record, and some unmixed samples from an upcoming 7-song CD, Sea of Thousand has begun building a sizable and loyal following ranging from their local scene in Austin, TX to locations across North America - and as far off as Eastern and Western Europe. And by playing regular shows with esteemed national acts such as Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon, Converge, Alabama Thunderpussy, Soilent Green, Cave In, Darkest Hour, Between the Buried and Me, Blood Brothers, High on Fire, Unsane, and many more, Sea of Thousand has continually gained new fans and built up a solid reputation as a killer live act.
