Game of Thrones Theme ( Rock / Metal Arrangement )

Hi everyone,

I recently recorded my own arrangement of the Game of Thrones' theme, and I would be glad if you guys could check it out and tell me what you think about it ! I know there's a loooot of Metal arrangement of this music, so I tried to keep it interesting (well, at least the 2nd part of the video)

Here it is :

Thanks in advance

These "metal" arrangements of songs (which aren't even metal) are probably the single worst thing to ever happen in the history of music.

I don't necessarily agree that they are the worst, but what really bugs me about most of these is that the bass and drums are so bland, mostly because the drums are computer programmed.


But, I think this guy was just having some fun, and he at least got good tones from his guitars. And the playing was fine too, nothing special, but certainly not bad.


Nice work dude

Thanks for the constructive comment dude.

You have all rights to dislike it, I'm totally fine with that. But I think that when it comes to music, nothing's "bad" as long as :

-Some people enjoy it,
And
-The artist behind the song doesn't get a disproportional amount of money for his work

One can produce all the crap he wants, it's totally fine as long as he doesn't get paid a fortune don't you think ?

FTFY.
And I didn't listen to the song but I'm guessing theagonia might have referred to the third point.

Also why is it bad if somebody receives a disproportional amount of money for his work?

Um... what? The artist has no control over how much money they ultimately get for their work. How do you measure how disproportionate it is? Who decides that? You? Derek? 7 of 9? The public ultimately decides how much that artist will get, and if that person gets a lot of money, they've obviously done something right.

I may have not been clear enough ^^"
I meant if that's just a marketing act, like you know, hiring a kid and turning him into a business icon... But then yeah that's not entirely about the music... Allright screw it then I'll shut the **** up

I see a kid who made a solid little production for himself and had fun. More than the majority of the pit can say. When they're not busy criticizing they're moaning about how shitty and depressing their uninspiring lives are.
