Triumph Biography


There are several artists called Triumph: 1) A Canadian rock band 2) A Scottish Christian rock band 3) A Brazilian black metal band 4) Italian eurobeat group 5) A Danish band playing random music 1. The Canadian rock band was popular in the late 1970s through the 1980s. Triumph began building their reputation across North America as a live band, peaking in the early 1980s as an import before interest gradually declined. Today, the power trio continue to receive radio airplay on Classic Rock stations and are perhaps best remembered for their positive message songs and their vibrant energetic concerts, complete with extravagant pyrotechnical light shows. Their popularity was extremely strong in Texas, where they first received strong radio attention; but, they were stellar standouts at California's US Festival, and garnered a considerable fan base and radio attention by regularly touring the world, especially throughout North America and Europe. The band was formed by Toronto music veterans Gil Moore (b. 1951) (drums/vocals) and Mike Levine (b. 1949) (bass/keyboards), after meeting talented guitarist/singer/songwriter Rik Emmett (b. 1953) in a manager's office [Neill Dixon & Steve Propas] in Toronto in 1975. Primary songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Rik Emmett left the group in 1988, Rick Santers and Phil Xenidis were temporary members for a while. It was in 2008 that Triumph briefly came back to life with Emmett finally agreeing to rejoin the band for a special Hall of Fame induction ceremony at the 2008 Canadian Juno Awards held in Calgary. The band rehearsed and did an impressive show, which was followed by a Swedish festival date in June 2008 It does not look like Triumph will perform more tour dates in the near future, as Rik Emmett has been busy promoting his successful independent career, with three releases in the past two years. His official site describes his devoted commitments which are highlighted on his website: Gil Moore has been preoccupied with building his successful recording school, Metal Works. Triumph have released 14 albums, their latest studio being Edge Of Excess in 1993 and Live at the US Festival in 2003. For more information and photographs of Triumph take a look at their official website, 2. A Scottish Christian rock band who released at least three albums. They were later known as Triumph UK] to distinguish themselves from the above band. Discography: * 1986 Triumph * 1987 Don't Look Back * 1989 Cry Freedom 3.

They started to create music right after a Slipknot koncert in Copenhagen. Their first 2 songs are made only by farts and burps recorded on the computer. A few days after 2 other guys joined, named Jonas And Johannes. Their greatest hits are God Tur Til Færøerne; a song dedicated to Niklas, and En Kæmpe Bunke Lort. They have plans to create more music in the future, but they need the right inspiration first. They also have plans to create all kinds of music; metal, rock, blues, techno, trance, world music. They have 3 albums on it's way; Tempting Sounds, Download This And Die and then the newest album The Ballet.
