Probot
PROBOT
(Southern Lord)
Stars graphics

Former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl has always had a secret musical passion. He grew up a hardcore-metal-loving DC teen long before his demo tapes had the good fortune to circulate in Seattleís grunge scene. Probot return Grohl to his adolescent love, as he mans the kit behind the likes of Merciful Fateís King Diamond and Cathedralís Lee Dorrian. The disc is a torrent of blitzkrieg drums and stabbing guitars (handled on two tracks by former Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil) played with all the fervor of a gang of 15-year-old boys worshipping Voivodís Dimension Hatross or Celtic Frostís To Mega Therion. It even has the sound of a basement recording, from "Red War," a double-bass-drum slam fest featuring Sepulturaís Max Cavalera, to the road-rumbling headbanger "Shake Your Blood," with Motörheadís Lemmy. Every song is instrumentally over-the-top and vocally histrionic. Itís an album filled with an almost vengeful glee ó a genuine homage to hardcore-metal style and sweat.
