Mastodon's cameo in Game of Thrones was hardcore
The members of Mastodon made cameo appearances as Wildlings in last night's Game of Thrones.
Celebrity cameos are generally avoided on the show, which could jeopardize the integrity of its richly consistant and believable fictional world. But a scene involving *SPOILER ALERT* Wildlings brutally stabbed to death and then brought back to life by White Walkers is, like, the most metal thing ever. It was perfectly fitting that Mastodon played the part. The metal heroes are big fans of the show, and will contribute the song "White Walker" to the Catch The Throne Vol. 2 mix tape this year.
Mastodon member Brann Dailor on his experience as a Wildling:
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.
Here's Mastodon as their usual selves.
