Winter is coming. Oh wait, it’s already here. What we meant to say is that Catch the Throne: The Mixtape, Vol. 2, the second installation of Game of Thrones mixtape, is coming, and Killswitch Engage have given us a glimpse of what their track sounds like. “Loyalty” is what the band’s contribution is called, and while we’ve known it’s been coming since last year, Leach unveiled a 41-second snippet of it on his website today.
“Loyalty” (full name “Loyalty: House Martell”) will be on the mixtape, which Leach revealed via his website that Mastodon will also appear on. Anthrax, Snoop Dog, Method Man and Yandel are among the others appearing on it. Here’s what Leach had to say:
So here is a little sample of the new Killswitch Engage song “Loyalty” for the Game of Thrones mixtape!!! This is just the chorus that lands in the middle of the song. The song is written for the House Martell and includes the house motto “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.” I honestly am excited and honored to be a part of this Epic show and a no doubt killer mix tape that features: Mastodon, Anthrax, Method Man & Talib Quali! For this with leaning more towards the screaming and growled vocals there is much more on here than the chorus suggests. The mixtape drops in late March, so until then check this out!
The album doesn’t have a release date just yet, but given that the fifth season of Game of Thrones debuts on April 12, it should be out before then.
