Ten Metal Songs That Would Make Game of Thrones Way Cooler

Page 3 of 3

7. Behemoth - "Conquer All"

This band performs in outfits that could have very easily been pulled from the GoT wardrobe trailer. Also, lead singer and guitarist, Nergal, beat leukemia recently, which makes him far more battle-proven than the lion's share of metal musicians.

6. Candlemass - "At the Gallows End"

We really don't have to explain the merits of this song, however, Messiah Marcolin's soaring vocal assault alone qualifies this as one of the most epic metal songs of all time.

5. Fire and Ice - "Smash Your Crown"

Being that GoT is based on George R.R. Martin's novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, we're tossing a tune by Richmond-based crossover thrashers Fire and Ice on here. The tune is only 46 seconds long, but each moment counts!
