Mastodon to Release Special White Walker Vinyl
Last year, the folks behind the brutally violent fantasy show Game of Thrones released a mixtape full killer metal, including a track by Mastodon (who also appeared on the show) called “White Walker.” Well, now the band has decided to treat their fans with a vinyl picture disc featuring the track, as well as some killer new art.
The band said the following of the release:
“Welsh illustrator Richey Beckett designed the artwork which was inspired by the show. The B-Side of the 12-inch features an a cappella version ofWhite Walker, the original idea for the song recorded by Brann on his phone in his kitchen.
“The artwork is a still from the episode in which we appeared as murdered wildlings who are brought back to life by White Walkers.”
That art is pretty damn cool, I must admit. Any Mastodon diehard or GoT devotee would be remiss not to snap this up for their collection.
You can order White Walker here. Neither Mastodon nor MetalSucks is responsible if the purchase of this disc turns you into some sort of murderous ice-zombie.
