The Brian Berggoetz Band plays with pure fire on the revelry of “It’s Gonna Rain.” Everything about it syncs into place effortlessly. Guitar work goes for a classic rock fervor, as they let the piece embrace a driving rhythm. Everything about it suggests vast, wide-open spaces in the best way possible. Volume is given, for they grab the listener entirely with their ferocious attack. The song steamrolls everything in its path with a nice element of the blues underpinning the sound. By going for this full-throttle delivery, they present a wild, feral energy.
Right from the first moment, the mood is set. The atmosphere goes for the kill immediately. His vocals have a sheer unhinged quality. Verses are perfectly accentuated by his ability to add a growling, menacing quality that cuts to the bone. Layer upon layer enters the fray, and they go for a timelessness about their work. Skilled, the group listens, playing off each other’s strengths. Kaleidoscopic, the array of different textures adds to the inherent grandeur. Best heard blasted; the sound ought to be felt and listened to as they embrace a sense of the purely physical. Drums hit with a wretched, ragged sensibility allowing for the work to veer uncontrollably back and forth. They enjoy the idea of surprise, and the twists and turns feel inspired.
“It’s Gonna Rain” has a muscular structure behind it, for the Brian Berggoetz Band proves to be exceptionally talented in capturing the raw energy of the stage.
