35th Anniversary! Includes "Magic Power" & "Fight The Good Fight"!
The Canadian hard-rock power trio Triumph stands out as a visionary, uniquely influential entity among their fellow brethren. Virtuoso musicianship, soaring melodies and exceptional songs with a positive perspective and outstanding live shows made vocalist/guitarist Rik Emmett, bass guitarist/keyboardist Mike Levine and vocalist/drummer Gil Moore destined for stardom. They defined and epitomized arena rock.
Triumph formed in Toronto, Ontario, in 1975 after a chance meeting led Emmett, Levine and Moore to embark on a marathon jam session. They immediately decided to form a band and the debut 'Triumph' was released in 1976 on Attic Records. Triumph's gift for delicate, intricate pieces and blistering raveups was evident on the first album.
1981 saw Triumph explode into the mainstream with Allied Forces. It immediately went gold and eventually platinum. This album became a critical and commercial smash, reaching # 23 on the Billboard charts. Its standout song, "Magic Power," was a hit single and "Fight the Good Fight" was another fan favorite. Both songs are still staples at rock radio.
