Last year’s most surprising promotional effort from HBO for the fourth season of Game of Thrones was a mixtape titled “Catch The Throne.” The mixtape featured hip hop music and was made available for free on Soundcloud.
Though the Thrones-inspired rap was received with mixed reactions from fans, it appears HBO is going ahead and creating a second edition of “Catch The Throne” for season 5.
According to the Facebook of American metalcore band Killswitch Engage and the Instagram of the band’s vocalist Jesse Leach, the band is currently recording a song for this year’s “Catch The Throne” mixtape. Leach posted an assortment of photos from the recording session.
The question now is, will the mixtape feature a variety of music styles or is this year’s theme is hard rock/metal? Another theme seems likely but with Game of Thrones, you can never assume.
Really stoked on the new song and a unique opportunity to be associated with #GameOfThrones #blessed #Grateful #Stoked A photo posted by Jesse Leach (@jesse_d_leach) on
