SOULFLY To Perform NAILBOMB's Entire 'Point Blank' Album; North American Tour Dates Announced

SOULFLY — the long-running band led by former SEPULTURA frontman Max Cavalera — has confirmed dates for its upcoming North American tour during which it will perform the NAILBOMB album "Point Blank" in its entirety. The 31-date trek begins October 6 in San Diego, California and wraps up November 8 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Support on the trek will come form CANNABIS CORPSE and HARMS WAY on select dates in addition to NOISEM and LODY KONG.

The sonic love child of Max and FUDGE TUNNEL's Alex Newport, this 1994 one-off album from their NAILBOMB union showcased dense, industrialized heaviness, seething with all-out punk aggression. In 13 tracks, the revered duo — crediting SEPULTURA alumns Andreas Kisser and Igor Cavalera, as well as FEAR FACTORY's Dino Cazares as players on the final product — managed to make an angry masterpiece that meets in the middle of what both SEPULTURA and FUDGE TUNNEL were doing at the time. But as for the visual representation of "Point Blank", the war-time photo of a Viet Cong woman with a gun to her head proves just as striking as the devastatingly heavy music within its sleeve.

Max told TeamRock last year about "Point Blank": "It's just such a pissed-off album! Me and Alex were pissed at everything and decided to make a real fuck-the-world 'hate project.' It is one of the most 'fuck-you' albums of all time; it aims at everything, and destroys everything. So, that'd be cool — to be remembered as a person who came here to fuck shit up, NAILBOMB's perfect!"
