Triumph’s most famous piece of work, this album has the quintessential sound and punch of the 80s. Great riffs, intense ballads, multi-dimensional musicanship, catchy lyrics, all blend to lend this album its widely-cherished and long-lived appeal.
Triumph is one of Canada’s greatest Hard Rock bands. With 10 classic albums released between 1976 and 1987, they have left an indelible mark on the history of Hard Rock, Melodic Rock and are nowadays considered among the forefathers of Progressive Metal.
Epitomizing the essence of the Power trio sound: Rik Emmett (guitar and vocals), Mike Levine (bass and keyboards) and Gil Moore (drums and vocals) are regarded as virtuoso musicians in their own right and great entertainers thanks to the Triumph concert spectacle that was second to none.
