Mastodon’s Brent Hinds has revealed that he’s recorded another cameo appearance for Game Of Thrones.
He and his bandmates appeared as wildlings on the hit HBO show in 2015, with guitarist Bill Kelliher speaking exclusively to Metal Hammer about the experience.
And now Hinds has confirmed he’s filmed another scene – and reveals the broken leg he suffered in November in a motorbike accident actually contributed to the shoot.
He tells the The Jasta Show: “I just came back from my second cameo on Game Of Thrones. This time, I had my broken leg and they were like, ‘You’re doing the best zombie walk – we want you to come right towards the camera. I want you to drag this axe behind you.’
“I’m like a reborn, come-to-life wildling turning into a White Walker.”
The collaboration between the band and Game Of Thrones began in 2014, when Mastodon met some of the cast and one of the writers at that year’s Sonisphere.
At the time Kelliher said: “It just so happened that we were starting a tour and they were shooting a scene in Belfast the day before. So the stars aligned and we were able to fly in a day early, quickly get there and jump into a scene.
“There was a lot of playing dead which contrary to popular belief is not that easy to do. I actually fell asleep, laying down on the ground with my battle axe by the water because I was so jet-lagged.”
Meanwhile, the band have announced that they’ll release a video for their new track Show Yourself tomorrow (Thursday, March 16).
Mastodon will release their seventh album Emperor Of Sand on March 31 and are the cover stars of the latest issue of Metal Hammer and also appear in the new edition of Classic Rock.
They’ll head out on tour from next month in support of the follow-up to 2014’s Once More ‘Round The Sun.
