The song features on the soundtrack to the eighth and final season of HBO’s smash hit series, which wrapped up on Sunday evening.

Last week, a video showing Tom Morello, Scott Ian, Nuno Bettencourt perform the famous Game Of Thrones theme on Game Of Thrones Fender guitars was released (opens in new tab).

The trio were joined in the clip by Djawadi, along with the show’s co-creator and showrunner D.B. Weiss and American singer, songwriter Brad Paisley.
