Martial Law began in the summer of 2009, at a random party, when singer/rythm guitarist Jimmy Peifer met drummer/vocalist Nick De'anda. Shortly afterward, Taylor Stevens was called upon on bass/vocals, and about a year later Jake Hall was added on lead guitar. now that they were a functional band, they began playing shows. 2 years later, the quartet released their first album, Novus Ordo Seclorum, and are currently progressing rapidly in their home town of Albuqurque New Mexico. They display a wide range of talent, genre, and influnce,and are optimistic about their future.
