Mastodon Appear In Latest Game of Thrones Episode

In potentially the greatest and most 2k15 PR stunt of all time, Mastodon featured in the latest episode of HBO’s smash TV phenomenon Game of Thrones last night.

Band members Brann Dailor, Bill Kelliher, and Brent Hinds portrayed wildlings in the episode “Hardhome” – the band was personally invited to participate by members of the show’s creator and executive producer, Dan Weiss, as well as the other executive producers, who are all fans of the band.

The scenes were filmed on location in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and the band also got to visit the sets at Titanic Studios.

As huge Game of Thrones fans themselves, Mastodon’s Brann Dailor describes their time Beyond the Wall:

“It was such an incredible experience to be on set as extras for our collective favorite show Game Of Thrones and to be wildlings murdered and then brought back to life by White Walkers was beyond amazing. I watched my best friends Brent and Bill, murdered right in front of me as I myself was stabbed in the stomach and had my throat slit multiple times, and I didn’t mind at all. It made me love being in Mastodon even more. We are more than privileged and honored to have been a part of one of the greatest stories ever told on film, and the catering wasn’t bad either.”
