What’s Being Said About the Game of Thrones Mix Tape
The Game of Thrones mixtape will feature 15 tracks representing the diversity of the Game of Thrones families. They will leverage themes and highlights from season 4 in a heavy metal and hip hop mix.
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.”
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.”
-Lucinda Martinez, SVP of Multicultural Marketing at HBO
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.”
-Scott Ian, founding member of Anthrax
