Griffin  


Griffin's two albums had their roots in thrash, but really the band was more than that, as frequent time changes, quirky vocals, and an interesting songwriting style prevailed. One of those bands that seemed like they were on the verge of a breakthrough album, but never managed to do so.

Note: no relation to Griffin, the Norwegian metal band.
