A band that really needs no introduction, Soulfly, will be doing a special tour of Canada beginning in March, performing as Nailbomb and playing Point Blank in full. This is the first time the band will ever do this in Canada. Point Blank is the special and sole studio release from Max Cavelera’s 1994 industrial sludge/groove side project, featuring Fudge Tunnel singer and guitarist Alex Newport

“My wife Gloria came up with the idea and I thought it was great,” Cavalera commented. “We’re doing it because my other band Cavalera Conspiracy recently played (the Sepultura album) Roots on (the Return to Roots) tour and it was so great and successful. People really liked the nostalgic feeling, so we talked about what we could have Soulfly do that would be kind of like that. And we decided on Nailbomb.”

Nailbomb goes all the way back to 1994 when Sepultura were touring behind the release of Chaos A.D.. While on tour, Gloria Cavalera’s stepdaughter, Christina began dating Newport and as Max developed a relationship with Newport, the two started jamming together.

“I loved the ultra-heavy guitar tones on Fudge Tunnel’s (1991 album) Hate Songs in E Minor and Alex showed me how he plays them,” Cavalera said. “And Alex asked me if I could show him how to play the really fast thrash riffs from albums like (1991’s) Arise. We were just having fun. We didn’t have any plan to make a record.”
