“Thinning The Herd may not be re-writing the rock and roll rule book, instead they’re using it as a handy coaster to rest their beer on while they turn up the amps, kick the shit out of the drums and rip their throats to shreds in the name of sweaty, drunken heaviness.” – The Sleeping Shaman
“…the five boroughs are awash in acts who blow hipster chunks all over the place in some kind of fashion show of who can out-horrible each other, and quality rock is a boon when you find it – which is why I’m into Thinning the Herd.” – The Obelisk
“While skirting the line on stoner metal here and there, Oceans Rise is just a good blast of hard rock kickass. It would be no stretch at all to find these songs in between Alice in Chains or Circus of Power on a radio station with some sac. 4/5” – Music Emissions
“There is a memorable thread weaving its way through the grungy guitar licks, warm production and soaring vocals of Thinning the Herd, rallying together to create an album experience which is imminently listenable, and ultimately enjoyable.” – Metal Army America
