"Slightly Damaged"

Long live sludge rock. Borgo Pass' follow-up to its second long-player, "Powered by Sludge," is this five-song metallurgists dream. Led by Tom Crane's and Paul Rosado's double-guitar storm and James Tamarazzo's thunderbolt vox, "Slightly Damaged" sounds not so slightly like the work of guys who should be playing Ozzfest 2002 (and what do you know - you can shoot an e-mail to and cast a vote for these Babylon boys). "Camaro Crash Helmet" and "SteelBloodAcidGod" stand above the sludge here, with the latter being a neck- snapping call for the nearest chiropractor. Pass the napacin, kids.
