Metal Blast reviews Borracho/Cortez split

“Borracho’s track, “Know My Name,” starts off with a super fuzzed out guitar riff, followed by the whole band crashing in, and instantly makes the statement that Borracho are here to destroy some speakers. The music is of the desert rock variety, a la Fu Manchu, and rocks loud and hard.” (April 28, 2014. Read the […]

Extreme Underground Music reviews Borracho/Cortez split

“this  is  a  very  great  sounding  split  and  I  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  stoner  rock  and  proto  metal.  8  out  of  10.” (April 23, 2014. Read the full review)

Washington City Paper on Cortez split and Europe tour

“The new song by Borracho, ‘Know My Name,’ takes the point of view of a killer, which is fine, because the D.C. metal band is heading to some Viking-ass/Goth-ass nations pretty soon, including Denmark and Germany. The tune itself has a strong whiff of Southern ‘tude and also some circa-’91 Sub Pop stank.” (April 1, 2014. […]

The Morsel reviews Oculus

“This latest release is an absolute blinder. Bookended by two huge tracks, from the moment the opening bass riff of Empty resonated through my speakers followed by the chorus driven swirling guitar, haunting vocal and driving downtuned fuzz, I was hooked… Heavy, melodic, tripped out jams, charging riffs, singable choruses, interesting song structures, it is all […]

The Obelisk reviews Borracho/Cortez split

“Over an oozingly thick, rolling groove in Tim Martin‘s bass and Mario Trubiano‘s drums — not to mention his own guitar — vocalist Steve Fisher seems to be more confident in his approach… and as ever, Borracho sound right at home dug into a steady middle pace that shows off the meat of their tones. […]

No Clean Singing reviews Borracho/Cortez split

“Borracho’s ”Know My Name” is a real skull-breaker. The riff is king, but a king so soaked in radioactivity that the Geiger counter is going off the scale. It’s ultra-swampy and ultra-groovy, a stoner metal monster with a chorus meant for sing-alongs (except few people will be able to hit Steve Fisher’s gritty highs). Awesome track.” (February 12, […]
