The next band to be inducted to the Bullspike Hall Of Fame is Long Island’s own Borgo Pass.
They have been tearing up the Long Island music scene since the mid-90s proving that rock and metal lives and thrives outside of the major cities. They manage to take modern day rock & metal and infuse it with the sounds of the 60s and 70s when rock and metal was just beginning to take over the world. Hints of their biggest influence Black Sabbath plus hints of southern rock are found within each track.
The band’s second self-produced album “Powered by Sludge”, released in early 2000, was extremely well received by their ever growing legion of fans, creating a feeding frenzy of downloading on MP3.com. And you can find their 2011 release “Deadwater” on iTunes so there’s no reason to miss out on a band who has caught the attention and shared the stage with Alice Cooper, Biohazard, Kittie, Overkill and others.
They continue to represent the rock and metal scene in Long Island and it should only be a matter of time before they break out to bigger things. So Borgo Pass will join the others in the inaugural 2012 Class of the Bullspike Hall Of Fame.
