The rumors of a season 5 mixtape for the HBO series Game of Thrones has been confirmed by a tweet from Anthrax’s guitarist Scott Ian.
The project, titled Catch the Throne, is made up of an assortment of metal, rap and hip-hop songs inspired by the series. More specific details about the fifth season’s mixtape have yet to be announced, although Killswitch Engage has also confirmed its involvement according to Entertainment Weekly.
“All of you out there who watch Game of Thrones, much like me, probably think it’s a very metal TV show," Ian told Metal Hammer. “And just know: the reason for that is that one of the creators [Dan Weiss] is a huge metalhead.”
This year’s metal style will differ greatly from last year’s hip-hop mixtape which featured 10 songs by bands including Common, Big Boi and Daddy Yankee. The entire collection is available for free on SoundCloud.
