From Tempe, Arizona, Seas Will Rise feature guitarist Eric Saylor, a founding member of Landmine Marathon.
In the words of MetalSucks: “Seas Will Rise have a strong connection to Landmine Marathon — the band features founding Marathoner Eric Saylor, and their debut album, Disease Is Our Refrain, was recorded and mixed by current Landmine Marathon guitarist Ryan Butler. And if you’re sitting there wondering ‘Gee, does that mean that Seas Will Rise play brutal, filthy, hardcore-flavored death grind?’, then you will be happy to know that the answer is, ‘Yes. Yes they do. And they are AWESOME AT IT.’
Saylor has revealed that Cormac McCarthy’s novel, The Road, provided inspiration for the album.
