Anthrax to Record in Westeros Throne Room
Anthrax are set to record drums for their next record in the Westeros throne room, Classic Rock reports.

The majestic hall in the fictional city of King's Landing is where many of the incredible storylines on hit TV show "Game of Thrones" are played out – and where the dreaded Iron Throne is kept.

Anthrax mainman Scott Ian is a huge fan of the series and has revealed the band will record drums for a new album in the throne room, which forms part of the HBO show's set in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Ian has a friend who works in HBO's accounting department and he was introduced to GOT executive producer DB Weiss – who it turns out is an Anthrax fanatic.

Ian tells the Metal Hammer Magazine show on TeamRock Radio: "I asked Dan Weiss 'Hey man, what would be the possibility of us recording the drums for the next album in the throne room?' Like we bring a mobile studio and set up the drums, mic everything and record in here. He says 'Oh my God that would be the sickest thing ever. We know the guys that can make that possible.'

"All of you out there who watch 'Game of Thrones,' much like me, probably think it is a very metal TV show. And just know, the reason for that is that one of the creators of it is a huge metalhead."

Ian says the band's 11th album will be released in 2015.
