We started filming some scenes for the song "Unholy Union" while on vacation. We thought the stairwell at Banken Hotell in Haugesund was very gothic looking aka. the perfect setting! It turned out very cool, with both Rainbow and Stevie Nicks vibes, so we're looking forward to film the rest and put the video together. It might not see the "light of night" before this autumn, because it's perfect for the spooky season.
We also took some gothic looking photos in the windowsill of our hotel room, and here's the first two pics from that shoot;
We know it's not easy for a studs and leather loving heavy metal fan to accept this look and styling we're going for in these pics. But if you love classic 70s rock and metal, bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, The Runaways and such, it wasn't all about the heavy attires, the music was their way to express themselves. The rather hippie lookin' groovy outfits came with the decade, and that's the decade and style we're trying to nail.
We're very versatile when it comes to clothes and music, and we love the mix based on our different inspirational sources. Why limit the creative influences when you can embrace it all?
Night League photoshoot video featuring the song "Wheels Of The Warrior" from the album "Night League".
On Friday July 3rd, we released our self-titeled debut album after three months of intense writing and recording since we started the band back in late March this year.
Six of the songs are brand new, while "Viper" and "Fallgate To Hell" has 30 and 10 years of history, but never been put to good use in our other projects, so they became "Night Leagued".
We're really proud of this album, and think we've managed to capture the sound and vibe we were going for; the gritty and groovy tunes from the 70s and early 80s.
The vision started as a pure NWOBHM idea, but turned into a NWOTHM. We can't put a lable on ourselves, as we want to grow as musicians, and keep experimenting with all that's catchy and heavy from our two favorite decades.
The reviews and feedback so far have been nothing but good, and we're so grateful for all the support we've been getting! It's truly amazing, so thank you!
Our album is available on all music streaming services, and we take pre-orders on vinyl and CDs in our shop and on Bandcamp. Special offer till August 3rd as well!
Howls and prowls,
The Night League
Just a couple of pics from a shoot we did back in June. "Trashing Revolt" is kinda our punk jam on our debut album, and though we don't go full on liberty spikes and all that, we still got some attitude.
This look and shoot was inspired by our song "Wheels of the Warrior."
A "lookbook" and image video will be up soon!
