The hit HBO fantasy drama has reeled in the Icelandic band for a musical cameo in the upcoming sixth installment.
Things are getting musical in Westeros.
Game of Thrones has booked Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men for an appearance in the upcoming sixth season.
Well, this has to be the most appropriate Game of Thrones casting ever.
Another Icelandic band is going to Westeros. The air pulses with each beat of the drums, the guitars and horns rising in a crescendo as they follow the two lead singers as they braid their voices together, sounding as much a call from an ancient time, as they also sing a modern folk rock ballad. The “Little Talks” folk-rock group – whose band name actually sounds like it could be some alternate foreign title for Game of Thrones – follows on the heels of fellow Icelandic trio Sigur Rós appearing in season 4. Of Monsters And Men were recently photographed in costume on the set in Girona, Spain, filming inside the Sant Pere de Gallivants monastery. Game of Thrones fansite Watchers on the Wall was behind the revelation.

Of Monsters and Men are the second Icelandic band to appear on the show, with Sigur Rós previously appearing during Joffrey Baratheon’s infamous wedding.
Much like the show, the band’s music has often been inspired by other fantasy works, with Hilmarsdóttir telling EW their third album may even be Lord of the Rings themed.
