Rick van der Linden formed Trace after he left Ekseption in 1973. The rest of the trio was made up of Jaap van Eik on bass and former Focus-drummer Pierre van der Linden.

Musically they were a very solid, tight and energetic classical-influenced, keyboard-based progressive rock band, but of a more conventional kind than Ekseption. Anyway, they still recorded some excellent progressive rock, and their self-titled debut is often regarded as their best album.
