Triumph: Rock & Roll Machine, produced by Banger Films (Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden, Rush and ZZ Top), delivers on revisiting a band that sold millions of albums, played for millions of fans, and never put themselves above their audience. 
“The Triumph story was compelling to me, Marc, and the Banger team because it was an opportunity to piece together a broken puzzle,” says Sam Dunn (who co directed the film with Marc Ricciardelli). “We wanted to know how and why the band dissolved at the peak of their powers. It was quite the ride!” 
The Triumph line-up –  Rik Emmett, Gil Moore, and Mike Levine – rocked the world, and in the process, gave us countless classic hard rock anthems (Fight the Good Fight, Hold On, Magic Power, I Live for the Weekend, Lay It On the Line, and of course, Rock & Roll Machine, and albums (Just a Game, Progressions of Power, Allied Forces, Never Surrender, Thunder Seven, etc.).
Originally formed in 1975 and hailing from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, the trio was always proud of their Great White North roots. And seemingly ever since their inception, Triumph was on the cutting edge of technology when it came to their live show – particularly lighting, sound, and effects. Sophisticated lasers, pyrotechnics and moving lighting rigs, all computer-controlled – Triumph was one of the first arena rock bands to incorporate all of these elements into their shows. Triumph’s headlining tours were legendary, and the band was featured on many memorable stadium/outdoor shows – including the US Festival, the World Series of Rock, the American Rock FestivalTexxas Jam, and Day on the Green, to name a few.

  1. Talk about bands that should have been HUGE!! Triumph is right up there at the top of the list! Just A Game and Allied Forces are 2 of the greatest albums of all time (IMO) – and many others I’m sure! Late ’70s/mid ’80s Triumph really was a “Rock & Roll Machine!”

  2. I’ve heard them referred to as a poor man’s Rush more than a few times but honestly that is a very inaccurate description. Besides being a 3 piece from Canada there is absolutely nothing else similar between the bands.

    1. Myk, I agree with 100%! I love Rush as much as anybody, but the only thing Rush and Triumph have in common is that they’re both a 3 member band from Canada, oh, and they’re both great!! Triumph has their own sound and their own style, they were their own band, not a Rush clone!

  3. Dana…just curious if there has been any comments that failed moderation and why. They would have to have been pretty bad I assume. Hope all is well with you and yours.
