‘Theocracy’ To Headline Benefit in Nashville, TN


The internationally renowned heavy metal band, “Theocracy” has been confirmed as the headliner for “Sanctuary From The Streets” at The Rutledge Live Music Venue in downtown Nashville, TN on Friday, February 15th 2013. The band’s latest release on Ulterium Records, “As The World Bleeds” was released in the United States on November 21st 2011 and has spawned numerous singles and videos including the video for “Hide in the Fairytale” this past September. Also appearing on the bill will be melodic metal bands “InnerSiege” based out of Peoria, IL and Nashville’s own “Oblivion Myth”.

The event itself serves as the inaugural effort from Nashville Metal Band’s latest endeavor, “Molten Metal” which seeks to bring awareness and support to worthwhile causes in and around the Middle Tennessee area. NMB founder and Oblivion Myth frontman Ray LeGrand says of the event, “I am very excited to see this come to fruition. Myself and OM Bassist, Randy ‘Cowboy’ Stepp are regular volunteers with Sanctuary International’s “Bridge Bunch” homeless / food outreach which provides approximately 4,500 meals per month to those less fortunate in the Nashville area. Additionally, the group serves as a collection and distribution point for seven other organizations who also feed Nashville’s displaced and homeless as well as providing food for 25 families directly. So, it was a logical fit for us to work together in order to bring awareness to the suffering so many in Nashville deal with on a daily basis and to help raise funds to aid in the effort”.

Keeping to the metallic theme, the “Bridge Bunch”, part of Sanctuary International “The Rock N’ Roll Refuge”, is led by former Intense Records founder Pastor Bob Beeman who has been largely influential in the careers of bands like Stryper, Barren Cross, Deliverance and Vengeance to name a few. Beeman continues to consult with many of the biggest names in metal today and has a wildly successful podcast on Youtube [Pastor Bob Daily] in addition to his passion for serving the homeless.

An online auction will take place in the weeks before the event and there are a number of items that will be raffled off at The Rutledge on the evening of the show. All proceeds will be given to the Bridge Bunch to help in their efforts to aid the homeless and hungry.
