Night League came to be on Friday 13th of March 2020.
After being together in heavy metal band "Grimskull" since 2009, and 80s project "Marita" since 2015, TJ and Marita decided to form a gritty NWOBHM duo.
A duo project has always been on their minds, and several ideas for sound and style, band names and songs have passed between them for many years, but nothing felt like the right move, keeping the final step at bay.
But on Friday 13th of March, a very fitting day for two old school horror lovers, Night League was born from the screams and slashes from nightmare made Jason, or something like that.
TJ is the main music machine in this duo, and Marita is the text tornado. Together they bring licks and lyrics to a new level, mixing both their vocals and love for cult metal.
"I'm really excited about this band! When something feels right, you just got to go for it! A vibe can blow over all too soon, so you just got to act on your current inspiration when it strikes. And this vibe struck hard, so we're just gonna focus on this project till our debut album sees the light of day," Marita says.
"It's been a dream of mine for a very long time to go back to the gritty roots of old school metal and do something like this. We often dabble with ideas to do cover songs and such, but the urge to do something original is always stronger, so here we are," TJ states.
