the mighty mythical beast Rarely has such a powerful image come to define both a band and a genre of rock music with such forthright aggression But Tarkus the second album by Emerson Lake & Palmer originally released in 1971 not only consolidated the groups success but helped establish progressive rock as an integral subgenre of 70s music Tarkus is dominated by the antiwar title track suite which forms the whole side of the album
&nbsp
Considered by many to be one of rocks original first supergroups Emerson Lake & Palmer formed in England in 1970 consisting of Keith Emerson keyboards Greg Lake bass guitar vocals guitar and Carl Palmer drums percussion The band created a brand new world of music combining classical and symphonic rock fused with beautiful vocals Their penchant for appropriating themes from classical music and the groups more nuanced textured approach to symphonic arrangements set ELP apart from their more bombastic guitarbased contemporaries of the time

This subtler and more sublime approach carries on today in the expansive atmospherics of Radiohead and Muse and also in the proginfluenced sphere of bands like Porcupine Tree Dream Theatre Opeth and many others making ELP one of the more relevant torchbearers of the progressive rock sound Along with Yes King Crimson Genesis and Rush Emerson Lake & Palmer ushered in the progera as one of the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1970s selling over 40 million albums ELPs dramatic flair sincere passion labyrinthine song structures and symphonyworthy virtuosity proved that classical rockers could compete for arenascale audiences as the band headlined stadium tours around the world
