It was year 2000, when three 10-year old kids from Hamina, Finland, decided to set up a rockband.
During the first couple of years those three kids, known as Niko Suortti, Tatu Mellin and Ville Nummi
spent their time by playing HIM-covers. Few years after foundation, they asked their old pal Riku Lipponen
to join them in the band. Not long after they decided to name themselves as Cry of Pain and start
making songs for their first demo.
