Game of Thrones Theme Song (Cover)

In honor of the best shows on HBO returning this weekend

I came across this video a couple of months ago, but wanted to wait until the Friday before the Season 4 premier to post it.

Taking on the iconic theme song of one of HBO’s biggest shows is cello rock band, Break of Reality. I was surprised when I recently discovered that the theme song for Game of Thrones didn’t consist of a live stringed instrument recording, but rather a computer generated, digitally synthesized track.

Break of Reality took matters into their own hands, recording an epic live instrument version of the theme song that, in my opinion, sounds much better than the original theme song version.
