Something awesome is happening. In fact, vocalists Nils Rue from Pagan's Mind, Henrik Båth from Darkwater, Elin Redin from End Of September and Theocracy's Matt Smith have joined forces to sing in a track composed by Smith himself and enriched with the guitar solo of Darkwater and Harmony's Markus Sigfridsson. The cool fact is that 100% of the income of this track will be delivered to The Bridge Bunch, an organization dedicated to serving the homeless population of Nashville, Tennessee, in the United States. Below you find a teaser of the track, which you can hear in full at this location.

The song of around seven minutes, entitled "Collide & Spark", is released by Ulterium Records under the banner Project Aegis. The artwork was created by Felipe Machado Franco, who already worked with Blind Guardian, Rhapsody Of Fire and Luca Turilli's Rhapsody, 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!"

"Collide & Spark" can be purchased on iTunes, Amazon mp3, Bandcamp, or enjoyed on Spotify.

This is beyond awesome. Selfishly, I'm glad to hear something related to Darkwater again. I want a new album so much! They are one of my favourite bands.

Yet more proof that Matt Smith's songwriting really deserves more recognition. I feel like this won't be the last time we'll be seeing stuff like this.
