A Heavy Cover of the “Game of Thrones” Theme

So, this version of the introductory theme for HBO’s Game of Thrones series kicks a lot of ass. With guitar. I almost like it more than the original, if I could find a way to justify having electric guitar in Westeros.

There’s an MP3 download link below the video on the Youtube page, if you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Fantastic! I love that opening theme anyway and I also happen to like metal...especially metal ballads like this one. Thanks for sharing. I've got the MP3 on repeat on my computer now.

Hah, I can see this on a sci-fi space opera anime re-imagining of GoT or something.

Enjoy! *g*

Yeah, I couldn't get around the whole "no electric guitars in Westeros" thing when thinking about it in the context of the actual series, but it's still cool.

But Eddard Stark already has an electric guitar!

This is fabulous. Great work! I agree with you, Brit--I almost like it more than the original.
