NORWAY is a 4-pc hard rock band from New Jersey, USA . Their indie debut album "Night Dreams", was a smash hit in Europe among the fans of AOR, Melodic and Hard Rock, and by rock magazines worldwide. That success led to signing a deal with acclaimed UK rock label Now & Then Records/Frontiers Records. NORWAY's label debut, "Arrival", was recorded in the UK and the USA during the summer/fall of '99, and was released in Europe March 6, 2000 to even more raves than Night Dreams. A release on Nippon Crown followed in Japan at the end of March with a national launch in the USA August 2000.
On hiatus for most of 2002-2004, in 2007 Norway recorded the highly anticipated follow-up to Arrival, "RISING UP FROM THE ASHES", with lead vocal duties handled by former Tradia & Departure frontman Dave Baldwin. This highly charged album marked the return of Norway to the top of the AOR/Melodic Rock scene worldwide. Available on MTM Music worldwide and Avalon Records in Japan.
