The music bed sounds boundless. You feel like you’re plugged into another universe and that you can hover over the world with answers and knowledge. Something about the beats and the rhythms makes you feel unstoppable and secure. The use of the word ‘illumination’ couldn’t be more perfect. This song illuminates the spirit within.

“Flame Of Truth” seems to reinvent itself about the song’s bridge. I loved the flow of the song and how it changed courses. It’s a great metaphor for life. Just when we think we’re in the rhythm, doing our thing, it changes. I’m not sure if they did that on purpose, or if they were just evolving their sound. Either way, it’s a knockout. It made it all the more interesting and fulfilling. I love that a group of individual artists came together – the idea of a collective gives you a sense of love that might be slightly different than a band collaborating. Maybe I’m overthinking it. I’m just basking in the wonders of “Flame Of Truth” and it has me in the best of moods. “Flame Of Truth” is one great song to seek out. This song burns bright.
