Mental Cage is a croatian one man band formed by Robert Bekić. It combines classical music with "modern" ambient, drone and metal tunes. Rob calls it "Croatian Experimentalism" All in all, the music is not meant to be categorized but rather made for pure enjoyment. Soon after creating of the project, the album "My gift to You" was released for free download. Then, at the beginning of 2013, the second album "Midnight of humanity" was released also for free download. It was intended to be released physically, but the label it should have been released closed. And Rob decided to release it for free. Then after a month a split album with "i AM esper" was released on "Torn Flesh Records" also for free again.
October 31 arrived and "Underground Alliance Records" released the final part of a three part compilation named "Hell" and Mental Cage was featured with the song "Hvala Ti". The compilation was very well recived by zines and fans. December 09 marked the day of Mental Cage's first physical release. "Tridroid Records" released the split with "Deep-pression" on tape. Limited to 50 copies on a white 62 minute cassette, with a single-sided two fold booklet. Although Rob already started to work on a new full lenght album a new split album came out on "Dark Matter Records" on 30.01.2014. it was the split album with "Hulduefni". called "Life ( when nightmares become rality). Interesting fact is that it took them a whole year to finish the release and in the end it got limited to just 25 copies on cd.
