Ulterium Records is proud to announce the release of ‘Collide & Spark’, an all-star charity track for sale with 100% of the income going to The Bridge Bunch, an organization dedicated to serving the homeless population of Nashville, TN, in the United States.
The song, which is almost seven minutes in length, is being released under the banner Project Aegis, and was composed by Theocracy vocalist and songwriter Matt Smith. It features vocals by Nils K. Rue [Pagan’s Mind], Henrik Båth [Darkwater], Elin Redin [End of September] and Smith, as well as a guitar solo by Markus Sigfridsson [Darkwater, Harmony].
The artwork was created by Felipe Machado Franco [Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of Fire] and designed by Markus Sigfridsson.
“This is such a cool opportunity to help make a difference in a small way”, says Smith. “Ninety-nine cents can go a long way toward giving someone a hot meal or a sleeping bag, especially now, in the heart of winter. Everyone associated with The Bridge Bunch works nonstop to serve the large number of people struggling in the Nashville area, and every penny of this goes to that very worthy cause. And the caliber of talent on this track makes it something truly special indeed!”

The Bridge Bunch is a ministry of Sanctuary International in Nashvile to their houseless friends on the streets. In an interview we did in Aug. 2011 with pastor Bob Beeman he said the following:
‘I am excited about the thousands of people who listen to my 3 minute Sanctuary devotions every day. I will begin this year to do a lot of new podcasts – this time VIDEO! The Bridge bunch is a ministry to the homeless that I started here in Nashville, Tennessee where I live. We are now serving food to 3,000 homeless people every month!’
