Anthrax's contribution to the second mixtape for HBO's hit fantasy series Game Of Thrones
is a song that the band had already written the music for. Vocalist Scott Ian explained to Kaaos TV
: "We didn't have time to start writing something brand new from scratch. We listened to all the material we had and made the decision. That one just… We all thought the same thing. Everybody listened to the demos and we all had the same idea that this one demo just sounded like that should be the song for Game Of Thrones, so it was a pretty easy decision."
"The lyrics weren't written yet, though," Ian added. "We only had the music, so then [the show producers] said you have to pick something about the show to write about."
