Mastodon, the heavy metal band from Atlanta, made their second appearance as extras on the hit show, this time as White Walkers on the season’s final episode. Band members Brann Dailor, Bill Kelliher, and Brent Hinds could be seen for a brief period of time, and if you didn’t know to look out for them, you would have had no clue that they weren’t just extras.
The Game of Thrones producers aren’t strangers to inviting, or rather, casting other well known stars. The most buzzworthy moment came earlier in season 7 when Ed Sheeran made his GOT debut, and his character perfectly fit in to the show. New York Mets pitcher, Noah Syndergaard, also made an appearance in the fourth episode of season 7. IfWill Champion’s career with Coldplay doesn’t work out much longer, he proved his worth as a wedding drummer.
Going back to Mastodon, they chose the perfect episode to make an appearance, given that it is the closest to their forthcoming album’s release on September 22nd. Following that, they will be hitting the road with support from Eagles of Death Metal. Whether you’re in to metal or not, I would suggest giving their Orlando show at Hard Rock Live a thought.
