Nailbomb was an industrial / thrash metal band. The band formed as side project by Brazilian musician Max Cavalera of Sepultura and Soulfly and English musician Alex Newport of Fudge Tunnel.[1] Together they recorded one studio album through Roadrunner Records, Point Blank, and played one live performance before disbanding.[1]

Nailbomb hosted other musicians to play guest spots, including D.H. Peligro (Dead Kennedys), Max Cavalera's brother Igor Cavalera (Sepultura co-founder), and Mexican-American guitarist Dino Cazares (co-founder and guitarist of Fear Factory, Brujeria and Divine Heresy).[1]

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.[1]
