Being a huge fan of industrial/rock bands such as Ministy, Nine Inch Nails, Sepultura, Fear Factory, Bile, Misery Loves Co., and Tool, I grabbed this on site but wasn't sure of what I'd be listening to. Fans of this sort of music will know the disappointment of some pretty lame efforts by usually brilliant musicians, and even just browsing the industrial section of amazon's site there are some pretty slim pickings when we really get honest with ourselves. Being a fan of Sepultra I had an idea of what to expect there, but...Fudge Tunnel? I have to say I was completely shocked at the sheer brilliance of this album. Each tune is different, look at the contrast between 'Wasting Away' and 'Sum of your achievements', but with the layers of keys and samples amongst the rough and chunky guitar work mean that listen after listen still isn't enough to absorb was it going on. And the vocals - what can I say, a perfect match. Talk about synergy, how the hell did these two get together? My god, what a result, I only wish they made more. Well there are two more tracks to be found on the live album, but start you are best to start your education here.

Nottingham meets Brazil in an explosion of industrial noise... Saw Fudge Tunnel support Sepultura in 1991 (I think.) My ears are just about recovered now. If you like any metal or industrial stuff from this era then buy this and get something a bit different from the run of the mill US soundalike bands. Broaden your mind by making your brain leak out from your ears. Enjoy.

With its really heavy and grinding rythms, point blank brings out all that hatred that you've accumulated after a long and tiring day or prepares you to face the depressing reality of life itself. It contains strong political views and is definately a CD to purchase if you're fed up with life and you're a fan of all that is really heavy.

nailbomb released as political an album as you may ever hear in your life here,its heavy and cavelera and friends have spewed out their frustration with the world that demons being sick,its an interesting album as it is heavier than sepultura who max was with then and in many ways it was as diverse as any soulfly album which max now resides in,key songs are cockroaches which has a killer riff and vibe and blind and lost,the fury is relentless but is still melodic in its own way,a great and brave album,of that you should have no doubt,fans of classic sepultura will lap this up like a cat in a milk factory
