Surely there will be another sci-fi fantasy show quite as great as Game of Thrones. The phenomenal series begins its final six episodes ever tonight on HBO. Not only was the show an epic experience e to watch no matter who ends up on the Iron Throne (or no throne at all), it is clearly the most metal show ever. In addition to the story and the amazing soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi, the show has battle, dragons, magic, zombies (White Walkers), Viking-like Northmen, witchcraft, and wildfire, and direwolves. But also the show has inspired metal covers and tribute songs, bands inspired by the show, a live concert experience based on the music for the show starring metal artists, music in the show and trailers from heavy bands, the actor that played the beloved Hodor character can shred to Megadeth, and even appearances by our favorite dudes in Mastodon in the army of the frozen undead (several times). Get pumped with a new Spotify playlist with a lot of rock and metal bands, and these covers below and happy watching! Continue reading
