Mastodon premieres Game of Thrones-inspired song “White Walker” — listen

on March 11, 2015, 1:43pm

Next month, Game of Thrones returns with its highly-anticipated fifth season. To coincide with more fire-breathing dragon action and Lannister-Stark drama, HBO has commissioned a new installment of its Catch the Throne mixtape series.

While Big Boi, Common, and Wale appeared on the series’ debut last March, this year’s entry is led by Method Man, Snoop Dogg, Talib Kweli, and, in a rather unexpected move, Mastodon. The metal rockers’ contribution is called “White Walker” and aptly honors the show’s ghastly, inhuman villains with gnarly guitar solos and haunting vocals. Listen in below.

Catch the Throne Vol. 2 is due out on March 17th. Game of Thrones’ fifth season premieres on April 12th on HBO.
