Mastodon - White Walker

     Chances are you've heard at some point in the last little while that there's going to be some pretty decent metal representation on the latest Game of Thrones album/mixtape (yeah, I know, right? That's a thing). Today you get to hear a sample from Catch the Throne, Vol. II in the form of new material from Mastodon.

     "White Walker" is light on the heavy and heavy on the mood, if you follow me. Don't expect much crushing or pummeling, but a haunting, white walker-y kind of atmosphere abounds. Do expect a slow build of brooding and dread that bursts about three quarters of the way in. Not what you might expect from Mastodon, but tasty nonetheless.
