5.0 out of 5 stars How can anyone not like this? June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
I honestly don't understand some of the one-star reviews below. There seems to be a lot of Dave Grohl bashing, but it's pretty clear that he's one of the most talented musicians in rock music today. From his hardcore punk days in the 1980s, to the legendary Nirvana, the Foo Fighters (probably the best alternative/modern rock band ever), and stints with QOTSA and Killing Joke, you can't go wrong with a Dave Grohl project. During all this time, he still found inspiration to come up with these 12 odes to the underground 80's metal scene that he loved so much.
Many people complain about this being a vanity project. Does the cover say "Dave Grohl's Probot"? Nope. Did it come packaged with a Foo Fighters album? Did anyone FORCE you to buy this? No. Then shut up. I don't look at this at a vanity project so much as Dave just rocking out. If anything, he's helping to keep artists like Tom G. Warrior, Cronos, and King Diamond relevant and helping them find new, younger fanbases. I bet Probot is responsible for moving more than a few Venom, Celtic Frost, and Mercyful Fate records. Plus, Grohl insisted on this record being released on an independent label (the superb Southern Lord Records) rather than a major label. Also, he got Away (from Voivod) to do the cover artwork. Okay, it might be a bit vain, but it's so freakin' cool that you can't complain.
So, on these twelve tracks, Dave calls on the skills of some of the best to lend some vocal support: Cronos, Max Cavalera, Lemmy, Mike Dean, Kurt Brecht, Lee Dorrian, Wino, Tom G. Warrior, Snake, Eric Wagner, King Diamond, and uhh...Jack Black. Each song sounds great and fairly unique, leading to my one minor complaint with this CD. The songs tend to sound like unreleased tracks from the singers' former bands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised Dec 9 2005
Format:Audio CD
Now, I'm not a Foo Fighters fan, but I've always respected Mr. Grohl for his genuine approach to music. His contributions to other bands such as Killing Joke and QOTSA always seem to have a positive impact, while keeping the music grounded. I bought this album out of that respect, and it has paid off. I now know WHY Grohl's music is as grounded as it is--the guy's a tried and true metalhead. When I saw the bands/members listed on the CD I almost choked on my tongue, having not seen or heard from these musicians in almost 17 years (I mean Cronos/Venom????). I thought, "now this is cool." Simply put, this album is a solid, non-poseur, well constructed effort. It's unpredictable but still honours a tried and true formula that made for great music when all other music SUCKED (yes, boys and girls, there WAS good music coming out of the 80's). Kudos to Grohl, and putting his money where his mouth is, and thanks for letting me revisit a sound that current bands rarely acheive nowadays. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD EFFORT THAT FALLS SHORT July 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
I finally had a chance to sit down and really give this disk a chance. The bottom line is there are three really good songs on this CD and the rest are ok at best. The best songs would be the first three songs. Crono's (Venom), Max Cavalera (Sepultura), and Lemmy, contribute the only memorable tracks on this disk. The big, big dissapointment is from Tom Warrior (Celtic Frost). The song blows as did his last bunch of releases. If you want to buy the true Celtic Frost CD that made them gods of metal, buy " Morbid Tales ". As for Grohl, he is a good musician who tries to his best to pay homage to some of Metal's old school icons. I feel the effort lacks real imput from the icons themselves and Grohl is better at writing MTV pop hits. This is a disk that you will want to play a few times for your friends then it will end up on the shelf next to St Anger. Save your money and buy the following if you want to hear the real thing from the people on this disk.
1. Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales
2. Venom - Either Black Metal or At war with Satan
3. MotorHead - Most motor head CD's are great but Orgasmatron is the best.
4. King Diamond - Buy any Merciful Fate CD and you will see why people still like this guy.
5. D.R.I. - Four of a kind is good
6. C.O.C. - The CD " Blind " is amazing.
7. Sepultura - Either " Beneath the remains or " Arise". Both are incredible CD's.
the rest of the people on the grohl CD are not really any thing to speak of. Voivod is ok but who cares...

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic metal rises from the dead May 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
Dave Grohl has always been open about his love for metal even when he was the drummer for the genre-changing Nirvana. So finally, after a year of seeking out contributors, he put together an 80's thrash metal/straight up metal album with some of the most notorious singers in the business. Some of the musicians he collaborated with on this album are Max Cavalera (Soulfly/Sepultra), Lemmy (Motorhead), Mike Dean (C.O.C.), King Diamond and Kurt Brecht (D.R.I.). This wasn't a self-serving affair either. Dave and his counterparts put forth an astounding amount of energy and creativity into this epic tribute styled album. What you loved about metal in those days is essentially what this disc is about. It harkens back to a simplified but kick ass time in music when every band had their own distinctive sound. Some of the more resounding tracks on the record are "Red War" with Max Cavalera, "Access Babylon" with Mike Dean and the full on, super fervent "Shake Your Blood" with the metal icon known as Lemmy. Make no bones about it, this CD respectfully represents the metal genre with a real sense of loyalty and appreciation. There are no age restrictions for this piece of work either. Any and all metal afficiandos will love this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dave Grohl is awesome
I agree with Grant. Dave Grohljust exudes good music. Foo Fighters, Nirvana, drums on QOTSA and Nine Inch Nails. He played every instrument on the first Foo Fighters album!
