Biography

There are currently 2 bands called Snail:

1) The Doom Metal band from Seattle, WA (1992-present)

Matt Lynch (Bass), Marty Dodson (Drums), Eric Clausen (Guitar), Mark Johnson (Guitar, Vocals)

Snail formed in 1992 consisting of singer Mark Johnson (The Crucified, Blessing the Hogs), bassist Matt Lynch (Plugusher) and drummer Marty Dodson.

After recording and shopping their first demo they were offered a 4-album deal by Big Deal Records in 1993. That year they recorded their Self-Titled album with help from producer Jonathan Burnside (Melvins, Nirvana, Steelpole Bathtub) at Razor’s Edge Studio (the birthplace of Sleep’s Holy Mountain) in San Francisco, CA. The album was well received by critics and garnered much praise from magazines such as Magnet, Alternative Press and BAM.

Snail’s second release was a 5-song EP called “All Channels Are Open.” The EP was recorded on a lowly 4-track in the hopes of capturing Snail’s dynamic low-fi sound.

Subsequent to the release of the EP, Snail sadly succombed to the “sex, drugs, and Rock n Roll” lifestyle and eroded to the point of breaking up. The worst part was that they had a complete second album recorded on 4track and was ready to bring it into the studio.

Fast forward to 2008 - Snail has been resurrected (the original lineup), has added a 4th member (guitarist Eric Clausen) and is in the studio recording the lost 2nd album.
