    Who else thinks this album rocks? If you wnjoy metal, this album is a must..

    Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl has always been an unabashed metalhead--Nirvana were heavily indebted to Black Sabbath. Now the multi-instrumentalist indulges his adolescent fantasies by inviting a slew of '80s underground metal vocalists to caterwaul their original lyrics set to a dozen Grohl-penned instrumentals. None of the results rival "Ace of Spades" or "Paranoid," but as vanity projects go Probot is a hell of a lot of skull-crushing fun. Remarkably diverse, too, from the doom-laden dirge "Ice Cold Man"--voiced by Lee Dorrian of Napalm Death--to the hardcore thrash of "Access Babylon," a collaboration with Mike Dean from Corrosion of Conformity. Mainstream music lovers will only recognize a couple of names, but the most distinctive turns come courtesy of cult artists, particularly D.R.I.'s Kurt Brecht and his blood vessel-bursting bellow on "Silent Spring," and the creepy Goth intonations of Tom G. Warrior (Apollyon Sun/Celtic Frost) on "Big Sky." --Kurt B. Reighley

    I picked up the album as soon as it came out, and to be honest i was a bit dissapointed. Thats not to say that it doesnt have some stand out tracks "Sweet Dreams" and "Access Babylon" to mention a few, but over all it felt really generic..still better then the majority of metal comp. and recent releases ive come across tho.

    Id give it 3 out of 5 stars.

    I was really impressed to see legendary metal acts perform over songs written by dave grohl.. Yeah I agree there is quite a few songs on the comp that just dont cut it. But it was good to see somewhat retired acts come out on this comp. and yeah access babylon was one of the first songs that really stood out on the comp for me...

    Yea i mean i def. enjoyed getting a chance to hear Crono's doing vocals on a project outside of Venom, and it was worth the couple bucks i dropped ..actually i suppose also i really liked the lettering used for it, so i suppose that was another aspect i over looked..but yea, still cool for them to put this together esp. since i doubt there was really any money involved.
