Denver-based, vegan, straight edge metal band Moral Law have a brand-new track, “Bluebird,” and it’s premiering today at New Noise. Check it out!
Following some changes in their lineup, Moral Law—Alex Morales (vocals), Ed Ma (bass), Shane Burdette (guitar), Owen Pishna (guitar), Xavier Contreras (drums)—released their self-titled EP in 2019, followed by a split release in 2020. They draw inspiration from edge-metal bands of the ’90s, alongside modern-day titans of the genre. Moral Law experimented with the message and approach they wanted to embrace, ultimately crafting their own genuine, multi-faceted take on a genre they’ve all held close, both as individual people and as musicians.
Moral Law also finished recording their debut LP, The Looming End, in December 2021 and plan to release it this summer. In the meantime, they’re hitting the road for a West Coast tour this month.
Morales chats more about the new track:
“’Bluebird’ expresses a lot of things, but it is primarily about the process of grief. It’s about the chains you feel as you grow older and attempt to distance yourself from that grief, how the moment binds itself to you. There’s a bit of the human condition reflected in it, wanting answers or looking for guidance, but sometimes it just isn’t there.”
