Gruntruck was formed in 1989 in Seattle, Washington by Ben McMillan and Scott McCullum, both previously from Skin Yard. Tommy Niemeyer from The Accused and Tim Paul, previously of Napalm Beach rounded out the initial, classic line-up. Their sound was described as grunge, and the band focused more on the metal side of the genre. They toured with Alice in Chains in Fall 1992 as well as with Pantera in Europe. After their MT album they did one one further album on Roadrunner.


Their first album, produced by Jack Endino. This recording has now been licensed by Roadrunner, who have since re- released it in CD format only with a very slightly different cover. Once again very guitar oriented, a bit more metal than Skin Yard, maybe because Tommy of the Accused is the Guitarist. This was pressed as a CD and cassette in the USA, and as a vinyl LP in both the USA and Germany.
