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.
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)

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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...

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!Published on Aug. 11 2005
This Album is awesome. I didnt know it even existed untill i heard Sweet Dreams featuring King Diamond. I knew that wasnt one of his songs, and so I looked it up and found Probot. Read morePublished on Sept. 16 2004 by Michael Beveridge

i like the idea of bringing together metal gods and trying to introduce them to stupid pop people, the cd is ok but i think it couldve been betterPublished on July 6 2004 by D. Box
Yeah, I know, Dave Ghrol is sorry he killed heavy metal with Nirvana and all that crap, but he just can't be forgiven for what he did to metal music. Read morePublished on July 2 2004 by Offensive Donkey
