EVEN THE FACELESS’ MICHAEL KEENE CAN’T SAVE BORGORE’S HORRIBLE MUSIC
So last year Sumerian signed dubstep artist Asaf Borger, better known as “Borgore,” and after the announcement was made, I never thought about it again because, y’know, fuck dubstep. So I basically completely forgot all about Borgore…
…until a friend sent me the below videos this morning, of The Faceless’ Michael Keene performing with Borgore on some television program late last year. And I’m a huge fan of Keene’s, so I hate to say this, but — holy shit, does this ever blow goats. Keene’s talents are totally wasted on Borgore’s “Nympho”; if you played me the song without the video and told me it was one of Korn’s dubstep collaborations, I would completely believe you. And why is Borgore wearing a Justin Bieber shirt? If he’s doing it because he likes Bieber, than he’s a pedophile; if he’s doing it to be ironic, than he’s a douche. Luckily, he makes up for his fashion choices with the worst fucking lyrics ever.
An acoustic version of Borgore’s “Delicious” fares slightly better, if only because, until Borgore starts rapping, the music is actually pretty decent, if sorta cheesy. But it was during this song that I started to wonder why Borgore — an Israeli by birth — raps with a faux British accent. “Hey, dude, it worked for Madonna…”
Now let us never speak of this again.
