Euro melodic metallers NoN (formerly Now Or Never) release their latest album III via Crusader Records physically and digitally on September 18th. III was preceded by two singles, the epic power ballad Until We Say Goodbye, and a stunning version of Duran Duran’s Ordinary World.
Pre-order/pre-save III HERE
III from NoN is about faith, life, afterlife. It talks about the relationship that one can have with their lives, loved ones, addictions…the love and care…what would one do if they had the chance to re live their life again? Do we get another chance?
Sonically, the atmosphere of III is more subtle than NoN’s previous release, with the guitar and key arrangements adding to the vocals, culminating in a warm, wide and harmonic tone to the album, but still with a heavy and tight rhythm section. III is the best of both worlds, melodic but heavy!

“The III Album is about faith, life, afterlife… it took me 18 month to write the music, most of the lyrics were written by Marc Farrano, a Norwegian singer, a couple of songs by Ranzo (drummer) and I wrote one, Afterlife. The main theme of the III album, talks about the relation that one can have with his life, loved ones, addiction, the love and care .. has he done it right? what would he do if he had the chance to re live his life again? do we get another chance? …
The lyrics of the album are much more “spiritual” than the last one. The atmosphere is more subtle, the guitar and key arrangements added to Steph’s voice adds a warm, wide and harmonic tone to the album, but still with a heavy and tight rhythm section. For me, it’s the best of both worlds, melodic but heavy !! the hyphen between old and new…. I’m really proud of the result of this album, the production and sound are top notch, the cover done by Stan W.Decker is amazing.
I think that NoN has reached the next level, we are ready to hit the big thing now that we are well surrounded by Crusader Records (Part Of Golden Robot Records) and its professionalism.”
