Never say never...




Triumph is a Canadian band formed in 1975 and originally composed of Fred Keeler, Peter Young, Mike Levine and Gil Moore.


Group which released a first single "Hobo" the same year, single which will go somewhat unnoticed. And a year later, their eponymous first album was released in 1976, an album that unfortunately did not find favor with the public anymore ...


They would have to wait for the following year and the release in 1977 of the album "Rock & Roll machine" to finally see their efforts rewarded, notably thanks to the single "Rocky mountain way". Single which will be released a year later in 1978.


But the takeoff, the real one, will take place the following year with the release in 1979 of the album "Just a game", album which will produce two hits of great caliber that are "Hold on" and "Lay it on the line”.


A rise in power that was confirmed at the very beginning of the 1980s with the release of the album "Progressions of power", an album whose flagship single was "I can survive". And which reached its peak in 1981 with the release of the album "Allied forces", album which will remain as the highest ranked of all thanks to the singles "Magic power", "Say goodbye" and "Fight the good fight".


The adventure continued in earnest in 1983 with the release of the album "Never surrender", an album that saw the band begin to convey more political messages in their songs. An album that paradoxically struggles to produce world class singles ...


Transfer to MCA Records from 1984, with the production of a first album "Thunder seven" under this new label. Album which allows them to come back somewhat in the race thanks to the title "Follow your heart".


New album "The sports of King" two years later in 1986, album which would produce their last high-caliber hit with the single "Somebody's out there".


Two other albums will be released thereafter, "Surveillance" in 1987 and "Edge of excess" in 1992 but neither of the 2 will be able to bring them back to the forefront ...


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1975 ... a structured start that bodes well for the future. It remains to be seen if the group will be able to quickly raise his level of play...



1976 ... for the big takeoff, it will not be for this year 1976 either. But what is certain is that this group has potential, it is clear ...



1978 ... the efforts paid off and the group obtained his first classified title here. The beginning of a long series ...



1979 ... after a year 1978 which allowed the group to move from shadow to light, the time has now come to shine throughout the North American continent ...



1979 ... everything really accelerates in this year 1979 with a second hit in the wake. The group begins to unroll quietly but surely !



1980 ... we thought they were gone to smash everything but the transition to the 80s will prove to be a little more complicated to manage than expected. At least for now ...



1981 ... we will have to wait the following year to finally see them take off for good. Not on this title but on the next one ...



1981 ... their efforts will finally pay off for good and it is THIS title that will bring them a semblance of consecration. We will not be talking about a planetary top hit but of very high caliber successes. It's already that !



1982 ... only one title for this year 1982 but in this case we will largely be content with quality rather than quantity. Quite simply a good job ...



1983 ... after 3 years of uninterrupted ascent, the machine will seize a little. With a fall in the Charts, to say the least, severe ...



1983 ... too bad because it was all off to a good start. But it's all about inspiration and if it fluctuates too much, the sanction is unfortunately immediate ...



1983 ... even if the level of success is no longer global, the 3 titles released in 1983 will experience a nice run in the American Charts. It's always better than nothing ...



1984 ... new single title year. With them, even years are rarely given as titles. Go find out why ...



1985 ... anyway, the group continues its adventure as he sees fit and is largely satisfied with a level of success essentially limited in the United States ...



1986 ... they will manage all the same to land a last major hit with this title. Like what, everything is always possible in music ...



1986 ... it is clear that from this title the rest of the course will be more figurative than anything else. This does not prevent the group from continuing to produce quality. We will therefore largely be satisfied ...



1987 ... the group has reached the end of its adventure and plays it all for all with the production of 4 titles in this year 1987, just that. Afterwards, not sure that this is enough to put them back on the front of the stage ...



1987 ... it starts from a good feeling to want to resist against all odds. But at a given moment, when it doesn't want any more, it doesn't want any more. And yet, on this one, they are far from demerit, it is clear ...



1987 ... this one will not even be classified. Times are getting harder and harder and we can tell that the group has reached the end of its adventure. At least in the eyes of the general public ...



1993 ... we thought the matter was definitely folded and here they are back 6 years later in this year 1993. A daring return but above all a losing return because the miracle will not take place and they will not be able to return to the front of the stage ...
