Of Bird and Cage is the first metal album created to be experienced as a story-driven video game. The unique, interactive metal concept album, created in cooperation with leading artists from the modern rock and metal scene and developed by Capricia Productions, will launch on PCs on May 20.

Watch the new gameplay trailer here.

Of Bird and Cage is a dark, twisted game specifically tailored to its music — the first-of-its-kind musical experience available on the market. It’s a two-hour-long story of trauma, violence, and madness based loosely on Beauty and the Beast, accompanied by a phenomenal soundtrack composed by Arnold Nesis.

Some of the acclaimed artists who took part in the recording of Of Bird and Cage are Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Rob van der Loo (Epica), and Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation). The characters are voiced by Kobra Paige (Kobra and the Lotus), Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria), and Davidavi ‘Vidi’ Dolev (Gunned Down Horses).

Watch this video of Davidavi “Vidi” Dolev, the lead singer of Gunned Down Horses and Subterranean Masquerade, going deep about his role and the game. In Of Bird and Cage, he voices the dark and complex character of Bres Lupus. Find out how he joined the project and how he influenced the character in this exclusive video.

You’re not just listening to a music album — you’re inside a dark, twisted game. Symphonic metal will lead you through this story of trauma, violence, and madness. Play as Gitta, a 25 year-old drug addict, tries to escape the physical and mental prison of her captor — Bres. Based on Beauty and the Beast, the game features your favorite hard rock and metal artists. See below for a list of participants.
