You may recall, last week Anthrax posted a ton of photos from a visit to the set of the most metal show on television, Game of Thrones. Well, that might not be the last time the band head to King's Landing if Scott Ian has anything to say about.
In a new interview with Metal Hammer, he reveals that one of the show's executive producers, D.B. Weiss, is a huge metalhead and Ian hopes to be able to record some of the band's upcoming album on set:
“I asked Dan [D.B.] Weiss ‘Hey man, what would be the possibility of us recording the drums for the next album in the throne room?’ Like we bring a mobile studio and set up the drums, mic everything and record in here. He says ‘Oh my God that would be the sickest thing ever. We know the guys that can make that possible.’
“All of you out there who watch Game Of Thrones, much like me, probably think it is a very metal TV show. And just know, the reason for that is that one of the creators of it is a huge metalhead.”
Sounds like a fun cross-promotion idea. In case you're wondering how metal Weiss is, Mastodon's Brent Hinds recently posted a photo of a few members of the Game of Thrones cast visiting a recent 'don gig with Weiss in tow. He's the dude in the Metallica shirt:
