A Thousand Leagues Below is a music from the Shovel Knight soundtrack. This is the theme of the Iron Whale in Shovel of Hope and Plague of Shadows. It is Music Sheet #27 in Shovel of Hope. It can also be listened to in Sound Test after completing either campaign once.
Music Sheet #27 can be found in the Iron Whale, in a room hidden by a breakable wall. The wall is at the end of the room with several Grapps and Gobcanoes past the first checkpoint. The Sheet has to be fished out in the secret room.
