Point Blank is the only studio album by heavy metal band Nailbomb, released on March 8, 1994 by Roadrunner Records. The side project Nailbomb was started by Max Cavalera and Alex Newport in the mid-1990s. The first track "Wasting Away" appears in the 1995 film To Die For. The album cover is a female Vietcong member with a U.S. soldier's gun to her head. The album is set to be played live in its entirety for the first time ever, later in 2017 by Max Cavalera performing under his band Soulfly, more than 20 years after the release of the album and the band's break up. However, Alex Newport will not be part of these performances.
