Imagine taking the lead singer of The Crash Test Dummies and making him sing with a grunge rock band and you get an idea of what Grammatrain sound like. Former Bloodgood member Paul Roraback is part of this three piece band and already they have established a reputation for themselves in their hometown of Seattle for playing authentic passionate rock music. Listening to their debut album for Forefront, it's not difficult to see why. It's a powerful rock performance that deserves to place Grammatrain at the front of the queue for Christian rock in the 90s. From the feedback-filled intro and heavy rhythm of songs like the title track through to the more gentle "Need", this album is the business! If you were looking for a Christian band with the power of Nirvana without the paranoia, you've found them!
