Killswitch Game Of Thrones track has ‘massive riffs’

Killswitch Engage have recorded a track to tie in with TV show Game Of Thrones.

And while frontman Jesse Leach hasn’t revealed any details, he describes it as having “massive riffs” and says he’s “pretty stoked” at the result.

Last night he posted a picture of his mic and lyric sheet in the band’s studio, explaining: “Tracking vocals for a last-minute ‘secret’ track. Adam D at the controls – gunna be a long night!”

The Game Of Thrones mixtape will be released in association with producers HBO. A camera crew were in the studio as the band worked.

Leach returned to KSE for last year’s album Disarm The Descent, and recently admitted he turned down the band’s first invitation to rejoin. They’re currently working on their seventh album, expected next year.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
