Biography

Ex-Snot and Soulfly guitarist Mikey Doling has seen his fair share of highs and lows during his tenure in the music industry. After co-founding the legendary Santa Barbara metal/punk rock hybrid Snot, Doling and his band toured relentlessly with the likes of System of a Down, Incubus, (hed)pe, Soulfly and were the most talked about billing on the 1998 edition of Ozzfest. Tragically, during the recording of the band’s sophomore album, Snot frontman, Lynn Strait, died in a car accident and put an end to a career that had generated considerable promise.

After mourning the loss of his best friend and bandmate, Doling returned in 2000 as the guitarist for Max Cavalera’s Soulfly. For five years Doling would tour the world performing for hundreds of thousands of fanatical fans, while sharing stages with the likes of Black Sabbath, Pantera, Slayer, and countless others. The experience would become some of the biggest career highs for the guitarist.

“When it came time to record my third record with Soulfly, I just felt like I had done everything I could possibly accomplish with them,” says Doling on his decision to move out onto his own. “Nothing against Soulfly; they we’re great to me, but it was time to move on. With Soulfly I was just a hired gun and had no say in the direction of the band or creative process. I missed being part of a democratic team of brothers who write everything and make every decision together, so I decided to move on.”
