As fans eagerly await the final episode of Game Of Thrones next week, the legendary guitar manufacturers Fender have released a video showing some familiar faces rock out to a unique take on the theme. The clip features Tom Morello, Anthrax’s Scott Ian and Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt and they’re playing on a set of Fender’s Game Of Thrones-inspired guitars.
The trio are also joined by the show’s co-creator and showrunner D.B. Weiss and Game Of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi, while American singer, songwriter Brad Paisley also joins in. You can check out the full video below, which also shows the musicians swapping ideas before launching into the theme.
Fender’s Game Of Thrones Sigil Collection consists of the House Stark Telecaster, the House Lannister Jaguar and the House Targaryen Stratocaster.
Speaking about the collaboration, EVP of Fender Products Justin Norvell says: “This has been a two-year journey – much of it spent in the concept phase, nailing down a cool and authentic way to bring the two properties together.
“We worked directly and extensively with Game Of Thrones’ creator and avid guitar player D.B. Weiss to ensure that our vision, design and materials reflected the identity of each house.
“As existing fans of the series, we couldn’t be happier with the final results and this partnership overall.”
Back in 2016, Anthrax guitarist Ian was transformed into a White Walker, while Mastodon appeared in the series in 2015. For more information on the new Game Of Thrones-inspired guitars, visit Fender’s official website.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Florence + the Machine’s version of the original Game Of Thrones song ‘Jenny of Oldstones’ debuted during the closing credits of the final season’s second episode, following a rendition sung by Podrick Payne earlier in the show.
The Game Of Thrones season finale will be broadcast on HBO on Sunday, 19 May.
