Borgo Pass - Slightly Damaged (Self Release)
Pass are back with a new lead singer and a new 5 song CD EP. Well an almost
new lead vocalist. James Tamarazzo has been with them about a year and
he brings a different vocal style to Borgo Pass. He replaced Ed
Sebastian who left after he and his wife had twins. Borgo Pass are a
five piece band who call Baldwin, New York home.
Borgo Pass still specialize in good ol' fashioned sludge. Vocalist James
Tamarazzo is reminiscent of Black Label Society/Ozzy Osbourne guitarist
Zakk Wylde. Guitarists Paul Rosado and Tom Crane play a powerful
combination of sludge riffs and technical solos. The rhythm section of
YT on bass and Joseph Wood on drums fit perfectly together to drive the
steel-clad locomotive from hell that is Borgo Pass.
1. "I've been Down" - Starts out upbeat with great riffs and
stays upbeat throughout the song, with a scorching solo.
2. "Shame" - Starts out soft and then the guitars jump in.
Another great solo is played.
3. "Camarocrashhelmet" - Another soft starter before hitting
you over the head with some mighty thunder riffs.
4. "Razorline" - Borgo Pass explore their lazy stoner
side....but still heavy!
5. "Steebloodacidgod" - We find more heavy riffs and playing
here with Jim Tamarazzo giving a few Phil Anselmo screams here and
This is a great 5 song CD/EP of sludge served up Borgo-ian style. The
only complaint I have is that it is too short!
