Limp Bizkit – Significant Other Revisited

Mastodon has been confirmed by HBO as one of the many artists to take part on the Game Of Thrones Mixtape, Catch the Throne: The Mixtape Vol. 2. HBO offers the following details:

HBO has teamed up with some of the music industry’s top artists for the second installment of Catch the Throne: The Mixtape, for the Emmy® – and Golden Globe – winning series Game of Thrones. Building on the success of Volume 1 – with over 2.5MM streams to date – that attracted hip-hop and reggaeton fans alike, Volume 2 will feature Method Man, Snoop Dogg and Yandel, and will transcend genres by adding Grammy-nominated metal bands Mastodon, Anthrax and Killswitch Engage to the mixtape lineup. The mixtape will be released in anticipation of the season 5 debut of Game of Thrones airing April 12th on HBO.

Produced by Launch Point Records, the 15-song mixtape features diverse artists representing Game of Thrones families, leveraging themes and highlights from season 4. Showcasing the importance of music in Game of Thrones, each song on the mixtape samples music from the show’s season 4 soundtrack. This year’s mixtape also weaves in the overarching theme of fire and ice, providing listeners with an exciting line-up of heavy metal and hip-hop artists.

As huge fans of the series, artists were eager to participate. “Off the top, I love Game of Thrones – I even gave my expert analysis of this season on my GGN show. It’s like the rap game, it’s gangster, about family, loyalty and trying to get to the top,” stated Snoop Dogg. “I had to get involved. Give the fans a little bit of how I see it.”

Lucinda Martinez, SVP of Multicultural Marketing at HBO stated, “Catch the Throne: The Mixtape garnered much praise and piqued interest of artists wanting to partake in its sequel. We’re excited to seize the opportunity to channel the fandom of these artists into volume 2 and give audiences another opportunity to experience original music inspired by the show. We are particularly excited to integrate heavy metal into the mixtape this time around to continue our celebration of this groundbreaking series.” Scott Ian, founding member of Anthrax, stated “As fans of Game of Thrones, we are extremely excited to collaborate on this project. Recording a song about the Lannister family allows us to connect more with our fans and Game of Thrones fans in a way we would have never imagined.”

Catch the Throne: The Mixtape Vol. 2 will be released next month, free of charge. Listeners are encouraged to share using the hashtag #CatchTheThrone.
