Griffin, hailing from Trondheim, Norway, was formed at the end of 1998, more or less as a hobby project as all the members was occupied with bands like Atrox, Bloodthorn and Dark Ages. The band started writing new material in late 2002 and recorded the album in early summer of 2003. Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom co-produced the album with the band, and he can also be heard playing a few guitar parts and doing some backing vocals as well. Face Front. 2004.
