Dave Grohl is one of the most talented guys in metal today. Yeah, I said it! Nirvana weren't my cup of tea, but Grohl is a metalhead. Granted, Foo Fighters isn't really metal, but it's heavier than a lot of bands that call themselves metal. Queens of the Stone Age...hell yeah, I don't care. It's metal. Dave's metal! This album proves it!

This side-project combines the talents of Grohl with some of the most important underground metal singers of the 80's. These are hardcore guys! Tom G. Warrior, Lee Dorrian, Cronos...these guys know heavy and they know metal! The result is a heavy album that pays tribute to the 80's without sounding stuck in them.

Tracklist:
1. "Centuries of Sin" (feat. Cronos of Venom)
2. "Red War" (feat. Max Cavalera of Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy and Sepultura)
3. "Shake Your Blood" (feat. Lemmy of Motörhead)
4. "Access Babylon" (feat. Mike Dean of C.O.C.)
5. "Silent Spring" (feat. Kurt Brecht of D.R.I.)
6. "Ice Cold Man" (feat. Lee Dorrian of Cathedral and Napalm Death)
7. "The Emerald Law" (feat. Wino of Saint Vitus and The Obsessed)
8. "Big Sky" (feat. Tom G. Warrior of Celtic Frost and Hellhammer)
9. "Dictatorsaurus" (feat. Snake of VoiVod)
10. "My Tortured Soul" (feat. Eric Wagner of Trouble)
11. "Sweet Dreams" (feat. King Diamond of King Diamond and Mercyful Fate)
12. "I Am the Warlock" (feat. Jack Black of Tenacious D [hidden track])

Now, I'm not even normally a fan of some of these singers. I love VoiVod and C.O.C. and Motorhead, but dudes...I've never listened to a Venom album all the way through. I've never been into King Diamond or Sepultura, I'm sorry to say. But the good news is, this album is awesome.

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.

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.

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...
