“There are nine songs on the album, and we will drop one single every 20 days," said the drummer of the regional blues attraction “Light under the Black Mountain” Željko Samardžić who is also the author of the new single 'Wake up the flame.'
Music and arrangements for 'Wake up the flame' were the work of the famous songwriter and “Light under the black mountain” guitarist, Kristijan Đuranović. The single recorded Miha Radonjić in the studio M Sound, while Predrag Pejić from Novi Sad's DoReMi production did the song mastering.
With the song 'Wake Up the Flame', Light under the Black Mountain once again demonstrated its luxurious music range, as, unlike 'Breakin' the Blues', which they did in the best fashion of modern blues, the new song follows the spirit of contemporary rock with a nostalgic appeal to the classic rock from the 70s of the past century.
