Sludgelord Interview

“So what more can I say about Oculus. It is a triumph on every level… It’s time to start part 2 of the Paranoid Hitsophrenic/Sludgelord Crossover with DC Riff-Warriors – BORRACHO.” (November 6, 2013. Read the interview)

Paranoid Hitsophrenic interview

“This summer the band released their second major effort, ‘Oculus’ and it was time for me to jump on the drunken bandwagon.  It’s a super addictive album and …”  (November 6, 2013. Read the interview)

Sea of Tranquility reviews Oculus

“This is a stoner rock album that pays homage to the many greats that have come across the scene since the mighty Sabbath started it all in Birmingham over 40 years ago. Tons of fat, stomp-a-licious riffs & grooves permeating this bad boy… Oculus is a hell of a lot of fun, a sweaty headbanging good time, […]

The Ripple Effect reviews Oculus

“Maintaining all the trademark Jurassic-sized stoner riffs and thunderous rock, Oculus brings in textures and expanded scenescapes– touches of prog structures, moments of ambient etherealness, and black-shrouded doom… this new world of Borracho finds the band at their current peak, creating worlds of heaviness in their interstellar epic.” (Sept 23, 2013.

If you’re a fan of Clutch, or anything on Small Stone Records, I have no doubt that you will thoroughly enjoy this album… Do yourself a favor. Get this album, put it on, crank the volume, and share it with your neighbors. (Sept. 20, 2013. Read the full review)

It’s a great read, and bombs are dropped. Hope you visit The Obelisk and check it out […]

Mutis reviews Oculus

“Egresados de la universidad de Black Sabbath, el cuarteto estadounidense repite todos los cliches de un género que maneja con naturalidad y cojones. En tan sólo 5 canciones, Borracho logra hacerse en un lugar en este mapa, sumando elementos de la sicodelia y un cantante que a ratos suena a Scott Weiland cantando en Kyuss. Una disco simpaticón […]

The Breathless Sleep reviews Oculus

“Oculus es una obra mucho más densa y espesa, así que la conclusión es simple: o aceptas cargar con la losa o te vas a jugar a otro juego.” (August 13, 2013. Read the full review in Spanish)

Metal Gigs reviews Oculus

“With a kick ass punch that seamlessly flows from enjoyable to full on groove with each slice the album has too offer and proves that Borracho are definitely a band to keep an eye on in the future.” (August 20, 2013. Read the full review)
