FOO FIGHTERS vocalist DAVE GROHL has formed a new heavy metal band, PROBOT, which will feature a selection of his new songs performed by his favourite artists.

According to [url=], Grohl will be joined by, amongst others, Soulfly’s Max Cavalera, Lemmy from Motorhead, Pantera’s Phil Anselmo, and Corrosion of Conformity’s Mike Dean on the album, which will be released in spring 2001.

All the parts for the album have been written and recorded by Grohl, with the exception of the lyrics and the track titles, which were decided by the individual vocalists.

The project is being produced by Matt Sweeney and engineered by Adam Kasper, who worked with Grohl on the band’s last album ‘There Is Nothing Left To Lose’.
