GRISTLE
COLD BLUE SKY
METAL BLADE

Featuring former members of cult 90’s progressive metal troupe Galactic Cowboys, the Houston, TX quartet Gristle update the power-laden metallic pop sound pioneered by Ben Huggins and company for the year 2010 and beyond on the 10-track endeavor COLD BLUE SKY. Retaining a running thread of Beatles-esque vocal melodies and slamming guitar crunch (“Save Me”) with sprinklings of piano and organ for added dramatics (“Only Love Can Save Us Now”), Gristle provides a soothing sensation mustered by Huggins’ distinct dreamlike vocals with familiar portions of past musical glories and intriguing new avenues intertwining, building well-textured modern musical extensions on to an already rock solid foundation (“Making it All Go Away”).
