– Metal: Hellsinger is the multi-award-winning, critically acclaimed rhythm FPS where you slay hordes of demons to a heavy metal beat. Today, developer The Outsiders and publisher Funcom are proud to announce the first DLC, Dream of the Beast, will arrive on March 29. 

To perform two brand-new original songs, we welcome new talent: the soaring powerhouse that is Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil, and the searing demon voice of Will Ramos from Lorna Shore. Players can select these songs from the new Song Selection feature that will arrive in a free update on the same day as Dream of the Beast releases. 

On top of the two new songs, Dream of the Beast adds plenty more. Blast through demons in rhythmic bursts of death with The Red Right Hand, the new machine gun, and don one of three sizzling outfits that provide unique gameplay modifiers.
