Three members of Mastodon were featured as extras on the May 31st episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Drummer Brann Dailor, guitarist Bill Kelliher and guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds portrayed “wildlings” on the episode titled “Hardhome,” which will be replayed at various times on the cable network throughout the next two weeks. Dailor and Hinds are pictured here in the center and center-right, along with three Game of Thrones cast members.
“It was such an incredible experience to be on set as extras for our collective favorite show Game Of Thrones and to be wildlings murdered and then brought back to life by White Walkers was beyond amazing,” Dailor commented. ”It made me love being in Mastodon even more. We are more than privileged and honored to have been a part of one of the greatest stories ever told on film, and the catering wasn’t bad either.”
Mastodon are preparing to spend their summer touring Europe, playing theaters as well as major festivals. They also have two August dates in Russia opening for Metallica.
