Early this year, HBO and Game of Thrones released a promo for the series’ 4th season entitled Catch the Throne. It’s a rap mixtape no less, with Common being the biggest name on it. The goal was to use themes and storylines from seasons 1-3 of the show to build up to season 4.

Maybe not too impactful for the metal world, but now, it seems that HBO is making a new mixtape to promo the newest season of Game of Thrones.

So, there we have it. There will be some new Killswitch material coming out soon. It’ll probably be delivered sometime before April 8th of next year, which is the kick of date for Season 5 of the show. It can be said that Killswitch Engage and other harder music would be more suited for Game of Thrones than rappers like Common anyway. Maybe get the guys from Amon Amarth to do some GoT inspired stuff??
