Asaf Borger is a record-label owner who’s been in an Israeli deathcore band in addition to a dubstep duo, but he’s most well-known as the producer and vocalist Borgore, making an aggressive metal-influenced EDM he calls “gorestep.” He’s toured around the world and collaborated with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Waka Flocka Flame and Barrington Levy while releasing a slew of singles and EPs, the most recent of which, The Buygore Album (stream it below), came out in 2015. And with new music on the way—the album Harder arrives on Friday—Borgore celebrates its release at Terminal 5 on Saturday night. NYC’s Prince Fox and Ray Volpe, out of Charlotte, N.C., open the show.
