Europe

Originally a progressive rock group, Europe didn't achieve any success until they reworked their sound into a bombastic yet melodic pop-metal. In their first incarnation, the Swedish band was called Force. The band -- featuring core members Joey Tempest (vocals), John Norum (guitar), Tony Reno (drums), and John Leven (bass) -- won a national talent contest in the early '80s, which led to a record contract. After changing their name to Europe and releasing two albums in Sweden (Europe and Wings of Tomorrow), the band landed an international deal with Epic Records. By this time, Norum and Reno had left the group and was replaced by Kee Marcello; drummer Ian Haugland and keyboardist Mic Michaeli also joined the lineup.

In 1986, Europe released The Final Countdown. On the album, Michaeli's keyboards took a prominent role (they provide the main riff in the hit title track), which nicely complemented the band's smoother pop melodies. The change in style proved successful, as the record became a Top Ten hit in the U.S. and U.K.; both "The Final Countdown" and "Carrie" became Top Ten singles as well. Delivered two years later, Out of This World continued the formula of the previous record. It also was a success, although its numbers didn't match those of The Final Countdown. Two years later, Europe released their fifth studio album, Prisoners of Paradise, which featured the hit title track, as well as the midtempo ballad “I’ll Cry for You,” before calling it quits the following year. The band reunited for a single New Year's Eve performance in Stockholm in 1999, resulting in the announcement of an official reunion three years later. The band’s sixth album, Start from the Dark, arrived in 2004, followed by Secret Society (2006) and Last Look at Eden (2009), the latter of which debuted at number one on the Swedish album chart. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Where the fuk is wings of tomorrow album? That album rocks balls
Amen
They sucked then and still do.
the last of a few gases spew in haze as unphantomed engines slowly start their scream and we look out port holes just to gage our fall from this worlds grace sighting out beyond stars never dwelling on past scars out there some where my life awaits as this one closes being our fate perhaps a new beginning lies out in deep space replaceing the end we now face the roar of thrusters carry us fourth and blast all earths sound and in its increasing force we know this is the final count down..4.3.2. 1 .
WOW, this group brings back memories, didn't know they were still together. 80's metal rules
I am happy to have lived through the eighties because every time the younger generation discovers the older groups I get to share more groups/artis t s with them that they may other wise have never discover.
The final countdown!!! ! ! ! ! So catchy really great
