Triumph - Documentary On The Way

Triumph's drummer/vocalist Gil Moore has revealed that Banger Films is working on a feature-length documentary about the Canadian rock legends.

Banger Films' previous documentaries include two on heavy metal, 2006's "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" and 2008's "Global Metal", 2010's "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage", 2009's "Iron Maiden: Flight 666" and 2014's "Super Duper Alice Cooper", as well as the TV documentary miniseries "Metal Evolution".

Speaking to the "Ouch, You're On My Hair" podcast, Moore said: "We're at the beginning stages of a documentary movie on the band... Banger Films are really the bomb when it comes to these band documentaries. They just finished ZZ Top, and it hasn't been released yet, so I don't know if I'm just letting something out of the bag. But ZZ Top is on the launching pad, and Triumph is right behind ZZ Top. And previously did Rush and they did The Tragically Hip. They did 'Super Duper Alice Cooper', which everybody's probably seen that one now. And they also did Iron Maiden. So we're next in that series. And it talks a lot about the US Festival, it talks about San Antonio [where the band developed a a huge regional following], it talks about the issues, later on in our career, with the record label. It talks about all that stuff."

Moore, who owns Canada's largest music recording studio Metalworks and since 2005 has run a veritable "school of rock" in the same 50,000 square-foot facility in Mississauga, Ontario, was also asked if there is any chance of Triumph ever playing shows again.

"It's really, really hard to say," he responded. "I don't bullshit; I just tell you the truth and where it's at. Times change, and I've gotten into a whole different career with Metalworks... Metalworks was originally a little recording studio with 10 people and now Metalworks has got a hundred employees, and it's a big operation, so I'm kind of tied down with that. I'm tied down in a good way. When I say 'tied down,' I'm doing what I love. My oldest daughter is the controller to the company, and I get to work with her every day. So that's my thing. It just comes down to hours in a day."
