[Edit]

Shortly after forming in 1975, the Canadian power trio Triumph released their eponymous debut on the Toronto indie label Attic. The 1976 album was subsequently reissued under its present title, In the Beginning. With their piercing but melodramatic riffs, the band showed they were ahead of the curve in setting the blueprint for heavy metal in the '80s. More importantly, they were a rock band for rock fans, as evidenced by songs like “24 Hours a Day” and “What’s Another Day of Rock & Roll,” both of which portray hard rock music as both a lifestyle and a form of escapism, which is exactly how Triumph’s fans viewed it. There are echoes of their Canadian brethren Rush in the skittering riffs of “Street Fighter” and “Be My Life,” shades of Jimi Hendrix in “Don’t Take My Life,” and a venom to match AC/DC in the propulsive “Let Me Get Next to You.” But the definitive song is unquestionably the medley of “Blinding Light Show/Moonchild.” It's a song written for the stage, where the band’s innovative lighting rig would soon become part and parcel of a soaring hard rock spectacle.
