Stream the second 'Game of Thrones' mixtape
Here we are, at last. Although Game of Thrones‘ eagerly-anticipated season 5 is still a few weeks away, diehard fans can kill some time by listening to the show’s second official mixtape tie-in. Catch the Throne, Vol. II is now available for free on Soundcloud and iTunes. The first edition gave listeners the unique experience of hearing Big Boi rap the name “Targaryen,” and hip-hop superstars of that pedigree are around on this one as well. Snoop Dogg provides a Lannister anthem capable of supplanting “Rains of Castamere,” and if you ever wanted to hear Method Man rap the Night’s Watch oath, here’s your chance.
This second edition is more musically diverse than the first, however. Mastodon sings a creepy song about the show’s demonic White Walkers, and Killswitch Engage scream for all fans still angry about Oberyn Martell’s gruesome death.
