Review by Bob Moore:
TRITONUS was an early project initiated by Peter K. Seiler, a German art-student who continues to make music today and is a well-regarded new-age/ambient/classical composer and performer. Seiler's intent was to create a 'classical rock' band in the tradition of EMERSON, LAKE, and PALMER, complete with heavy keyboards and Lake-inspired English vocals.

The group enlisted a new vocalist for their second and final album (Geff Harrison) who had been a founding member of the defunct 2066 & THEN, and had most recently left KIN PING MEH in search of a solo career. The second release showed more promise with a side-long symphonic epic ("Suburban Day Suite"), a more psychedelic-sounding style, and keyboards closer to free-form than the highly structured work of their ELP forbearers.

The band toured extensively from 1973 to 1978, but Seilers by then had focused his attentions on television and radio commercials and other projects, finding financial success with his theme song for the television series "Atlantis May Not Perish" as well as a widely used jingle for the Ferrero Chocolate Company, among others. He also collaborated on several efforts with electronica wiz Michael Bundt, and launched a series of multimedia live solo shows. As for the band, TRITONUS folded in 1979.

This band deserves a place in the Archives for their two distinctly different but undeniably progressive studio releases, particularly the highly symphonic and ambitious "Between the Universes".
