Nailbomb - _Proud To Commit Commercial Suicide_
by: Gino Filicetti (
When I first heard that Nailbomb was doing a live record, I thought, hmm... should be interesting, as it turns out, the CD was pretty good, but nothing I would exactly kill for. The record was recorded at the 1995 Dynamo Open Air Festival in Holland last June, an event heralded by many as one of the best Dynamo's ever. Nailbomb played a warm up set two nights before their actual gig at a small club in Eindhoven. Supposedly Nailbomb only actually rehearsed FOUR TIMES before flying to Europe. Their line up consisted of Max Cavalera, and Alex Newport of course, with Igor Cavalera (newly wed!) on drums sharing duties with ex-Dead Kennedy's crazy skinsman DH Peligro and Tribe After Tribe's Barry Schneider throwing in percussions as well. This album contains eleven live tracks all taken from Nailbomb's 1994 killer release: _Point Blank_. The music on this record, while very solid and powerful, is full of certain small errors, but, as the band agrees, "We were not really concerned about mistakes or technical situations - more about the feeling of the whole thing." Tracks that stand out are 'Vai Toma No Cu,' 'Religious Cancer,' and 'Exploitation.' I've never liked live albums and this record has also failed to convince me of their validity, but still, a great way for Nailbomb, who are calling it quits, to go out with a bang.
