Sunk Loto was a metal band from Queensland, Australia. The band's members were vocalist Jason Brown, guitarist Luke McDonald, bass player Sean Van Gennip, and drummer Dane Brown. Sunk Loto held a recording contract with Sony Music Australia with whom they signed when the average age of the band members was 16 years old. They released two full length albums and a full length EP, all of which were considered a blend of heavy metal.

Between 2000 - 2002, Adam Cox joined the band's live line-up as their DJ, Sampler and Keyboardist.

In 2006 Sean Van Gennip departed the band due to creative differences. He was replaced with Rob Kaay.

The band finished a short Australian tour at the end of 2006 and then headed back into the studio to finish writing and recording their follow up to 2003's Between Birth and Death.

Brothers Dane Brown and Jason Brown and replacement bass player Rob Kaay had a meeting together in May 2007 and decided to work together on a new project without Luke McDonald. The three wrote many songs, five days a week over a six-month period and titled the band The Flood, The Flood.

Sunk Loto played a final show at the Hard Rock Hotel on the Gold Coast on Friday 14 December 2007. Jason and Dane Brown are now part of a new project titled Electric Horse.
