TRIUMVIRAT is a classic seventies German prog band. This German trio was most often referred to as an ELP clone and one of the most talented progressive rock groups ever. Led by 'maestro' keyboard genius Jürgen FRITZ, TRIUMVIRAT stunned even the most casual rock fan with its virtuoso performances featuring the legendary vocal work by both Barry PALMER and Helmut KÖLLEN, and technically superior drumming by Hans BATHLET and Curt CRESS.
This band performs a kind of higly technical progressive rock dominated by emphatic and pompous keyboards that strongly evoke EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER. Granted their vocals were a little cheesy at times (English with heavy German accent) but they improved with each release and "Spartacus" (1975) was a masterpiece. All their releases are now available on CD.
This reissue features two previously unreleased tracks and excellent sound quality!
