Triumvirat is a classic seventies German prog band. This trio was often referred to as 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 legendary vocal work by Barry Palmer and Helmut Köllen and technically superior drumming by Hans Bathlet and Curt Cress.

This band performs a kind of highly 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 were better with the dramatic Illusions on a Double Dimple (1974) and their masterpiece, Spartacus (1975). All their releases are now available on CD. « hide
