    I thought I'd never, ever hear somebody mentioning "Triumvirat" on SH Music Forums... Hell, such a GREAT rock band like that is sure one of the most overlooked I've ever witnessed! But then again to each their own...
    :cheers:

    Great choices, I'd squeeze Deep Purple, Traffic, The Who and Neil Young into my personal list though.

    I would squeeze so many in there. Love Deep Purple. Triumvirate, Illusions On A Double Dimple. I keep that Album on my phone along wit Captain Beyonds debut and Cactus. But yeah Triumvirate was great. I fell in love with them and I'm not sure if it was because or in spite of sounding like ELP. Lol hell I even like Star Castle back then. I didn't get into Spartacus as much as Illusions. So we may be the only 2 fans in the forum lol. Pax

    Triumvirat and ELP are some of my all-time favourite bands, but these old stretched out arguments (also "Triumvirat is an ELP clone") are a fallacy in my viewpoint, mostly stated by people for whom the early 70's keyboard-driven rock music is not in their listening comfort zone, hence statements alike wrongly applied to a bunch of other unique bands whose approaches were though clearly inspired by ELP's sounds & music. Triade, Trace, Trip and Pell Mell are some others among several really great bands that immediately spring to mind as having their own unique identity, albeit sometimes tagged as (...erm) "ELP clones" :sigh:.

    I find Triumvirate a bit darker or moodier, than ELP. Great band in my opinion.
