From the monthly archives: "August 2011"

TRIUMPH’s 1981 release, “Allied Forces”, was the album where it all came together for these Canadian prog-metallists. Spawning two of Triumph’s most beloved and enduring arena rock anthems – ’Magic Power’ and ‘Fight the Good Fight’. Produced by the group themselves (vocalist/guitarist Rik Emmett, bassist Michael Levine, and vocalist/drummer Gil Moore), the nine-track album was certified Platinum, and sold an impressive 2.5 million copies worldwide.

Now fans will be able to take a highly welcomed trip down memory lane, as “Allied Forces” is reissued as a “30th Anniversary Vinyl Edition” and as part of a new Merch Bundle [Pre-Order]. The album’s original tracks are from the actual EQ’d masters, while the packaging itself will exactly mirror the original ’81 vinyl version.
