Nailbomb was a band formed in 1994 as a side project by Brazilian musician Max Cavalera of Sepultura, and English musician Alex Newport of Fudge Tunnel. The band recorded just this Point Blank album, and played one live performance before disbanding the next year.
Nailbomb hosted other musicians to play guest spots, including D.H. Peligro (Dead Kennedys), Max Cavalera's brother Igor Cavalera (Sepultura co-founder), and guitarist Dino Cazares (co-founder and guitarist of Fear Factory). Nailbomb's second album, Proud to Commit Commercial Suicide, was a live recording capturing the band's appearance at the 1995 Dynamo Open Air Festival in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
Point Blank was released on March 8, 1994 by Roadrunner Records.
In 1993, Sepultura released the album “Chaos A.D.”, clearly hugely influenced by the newer “alternative” rock/metal subgenres of those years, and at the same time, that Chaos A.D. became an album that would influence a lot of modern metal bands since then, One of Sepultura’s biggest influences, in that period, were surely the groove/sludge/noise masters Fudge Tunnel, so, from this connection was that Nailbomb was formed.
