iTunes Editors’ Notes

When Triumph took the stage at Sweden Rock Festival on June 7, 2008, the band’s three original members hadn’t played onstage together for more than 20 years. Yet far from being rusty, they sounded completely up to date. Even though the band had helped define the sound of '80s metal, the opening notes of the bluesy, gritty “When the Lights Go Down” make it clear that they'd stayed attuned to the changing sound of their chosen genre. The band members were all past 50, but there's absolutely nothing passive or wimpy about these versions of “Allied Forces,” “Lay It on the Line,” and “Rock and Roll Machine.” As untested rock hopefuls in their early 20s, these Canadians had covered Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way” in the hopes of stealing some of that hard-bitten rock majesty for themselves. They reprise that old favorite here, but it sounds almost quaint next to the band’s forceful originals. This reunion set left no doubt that the little trio from Toronto had finally transformed into one of the heavyweight acts in the history of hard rock.

Customer Reviews

Great to hear them again.

One of my favorite bands. Takes me back to a great time in life.

DO STAGES or US FESTIVAL - NOT SWEDEN!!!

I must say that I was so looking forward to this release as I have always been a huge Triumph Fan! Musically, the guys still have it! However, the vocals are another story entirely! They cannot hit or carry the notes as they once did! With that said, "Live At Sweden Rock Festival" is for the die hards who must have a copy of every release! If that is you - ENJOY! If NOT - do not waste your $$$ on this one! Pick up "STAGES", "LIVE at the US FESTIVAL" or perhaps even the live set released from The King Biscuit Flower Hour! You cannot go wrong with iether of those three! Happy Day!

Live Triumph sounds great after all these years

Rik Emment is back and sounds amazing this is the first of two reunion shows they played for a band that has not been active the past 20 years they havent missed a beat

Late-'70s/early-'80s prog metallists Triumph endured countless comparisons to Rush throughout their career, and with good reason; they were both quite similar musically and lyrically, comprised of three members each, and hailed from Canada (although it must be said that Rush were the originator, and were much more commercially successful). Formed in Toronto during 1975, the trio consisted of guitarist/singer Rik Emmett, drummer/singer Gil Moore, and bassist/keyboardist Mike Levine, and issued its...
