SNOT was one of the many nu metal bands that emerged in the 90s. They were from Santa Barbara, CA and managed to release this one album GET SOME before the lead singer Lynn Strait was killed in a car crash in 1998 which also took with him his dog, Dobbs, which is featured on the album cover. The band was actually poised to become somewhat successful as they performed on the 1998 Ozzfest tour five months before Strait’s untimely demise.

This is one of those albums where i hear lots of potential but the band was clearly idolizing their influences and not at the point where they could strut their originality quite yet. I hear riffs borrowed from Rage Against The Machine, nu metal leanings in the Korn arena and even a little Pantera-esque riff on the harder parts. The music is generally aggressive like in the Slipknot camp but there are slow passages that follow in the ambient Korn footsteps.

Personally i can see the potential ready to explode with this band as they were all very young but they already could perform their craft very well even if it were snippets of other influences. The group decided to call it quits after Strait’s death and there is no telling how far the band could have evolved but i do feel a spark there. Unfortunately this album is only a mediocre sampling of the day but a decent snippet in the underground history of the sub genre of nu metal.
