Now Or Never was founded in 2012 by guitarist Ricky Marx (ex-Pretty Maids) and drummer Ranzo, to be joined soon after by vocalist Jo Amore (ex-Nightmare), and bass player Kenn Jackson (also a veteran ex-Pretty Maids member).
Short after, Now Or Never recorded their self-titled debut album at the Peek Studio in the South of France, co-produced by the band and Pat Liotard.
Their eponymous debut album was released worldwide on the Mausoleum Records label, early 2014 and got a very good response from the hard rock scene and good international reviews by the press.
Already in the fall of 2015, Now or Never entered Peek Studio and finished recording their second album “II”, again co-produced by Pat Liotard. Their latest album “II” was released worldwide by Mighty Music the 26th of February 2016 and in Japan by Bickee Music in March 2016.
Now Or Never is a band of experienced musicians, both on the road and in the studio:
Ricky Marxis an inventive and experienced guitar player, who was a fulltime member of Pretty Maids and recorded two albums with them. He’s also an experienced producer and accomplished songwriter.
Jo Amore was the vocalist for the successful French Metal band Nightmare, with whom he recorded a dozen or so albums, as well as performing on major festivals and venues all over Europe and the US.
Ranzo is a powerful drummer and has played with various Swiss and German bands, such as Sultan, with whom he recorded a couple of albums. Having collaborated with Nightmare in the past, he is also the main author of the lyrics of Now Or Never and also a co-writer of some of the music together with Ricky Marx.
Now Or Never perform epic anthems featuring bone crushing filthy riffs and memorable melodies delivered by a singer whose has been justifiably described as bloodcurdling. Now Or Never epitomizes the evolution of Hard Rock into modern Metal Music.
In February 2017, Kenn left the band for personal reasons after 4 years in the band. In March 2017 the band made the choice of hiring Abel Cabrita, young bass player that have played with several French bands like JC Jess. Abel is a multi-instrumental musician.
