Probot
Probot (Southern Lord)

By: Mike SOS

This may be the metal album of the decade, and the funny thing about it is that it comes from an artist you'd never expect. Dave Grohl, best known as the drummer for Nirvana, head honcho of the Foo Fighters, and everyone's favorite hired gun (just ask Queens of the Stone Age and Killing Joke) has compiled a 11-track metal album that brings real metal back into the spotlight. Grohl's pet project, known as Probot, is an ambitious endeavor, picking up where Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi's latest solo work left off. Grohl wrote and arranged some kick ass metal tunes, and, much like Iommi, farmed out the vocals to some of metal's luminary vocalists. The end result is the crushing self-titled album that reads like a who's who of metal. Listing in order of appearance: Cronos (Venom), Max Calavera (Sepultura), Lemmy (Motorhead), Mike Dean (COC), Kurt Brecht (DRI), Lee Dorrian (Cathedral), Wino (The Obssessed, Spirit Caravan), Tom G. Warrior (Celtic Frost), Snake (Voivod), Eric Wagner (Trouble) and last, but not least, the majestic King Diamond lend their talents to one of the most engaging metal releases in recent memory. A must have for any self-respecting metal fan, Probot hits all sects of metal and may garnish Grohl the respect he richly deserves as a true musical genius.
