Game of Thrones is one of the biggest TV show from viewership, ratings and production cost right now. It has a massive fan base and that extends to the EDM community as well. Knowing this, Armin van Buuren attempted something unique. He fused the Game of Thrones title theme song with some electronic music and the result is quite outstanding.
Game of Thrones’ main title credits music is done by Ramin Djawadi and he says Cello was chosen as the main instrument to produce a “darker sound” to suite the series. The intro song is 1 minute 50 seconds long and one of the few intro musics that aren’t skipped by the fans.

Before playing the track Buuren calls out the crowd. “So, who’s a fan of The Game Of Thrones?” and the crowd goes wild. At the beginning of the track, although it sounded more like the original theme song, towards the end, the track turned more electronic than Cello.
Throughout the entire composure, the set had a more reddish color tone which reminds us of all the blood flaws in Game of Thrones.
