Description

"Snubnose is the rare concept album that manages not to drown under the weight of its own pretension. Brisk and violent, East Atlanta’s Grip fashions a tight project about the magnetic allure and repulsion of firearms. The demonic and high-pitched voice of the anthropomorphized “Snubnose” appears across the album. At points the alien-like vocals dip into territories of annoyance, but what always saves the proceedings is Grip’s deceptively complex level of detail. “Where I come from, well I can’t say, my serial number filed down/It’s been like that for a while now, wear and tear show you I got high miles,” he spits on “He Is…I Am.” The rest of the album unfolds like a thriller as Grip travels from his upbringing to his current reality as an artist on the cusp. Through moments of nostalgia Grip begins to come to terms with his survival, those who weren’t as lucky, and the inanimate object that wrought so much destruction." - Rolling Stones
