There are few bands that have ASOIAF as a lyrical theme, but I am looking for recommendations of bands/albums that capture an atmosphere from the books. I've been listening to Summoning and Caladan Brood as background while reading and was wondering if anyone had a song that takes them to the Wall or the Red Wedding, or anywhere else in the ASOIAF universe.

(disregard the video obviously)

also, the beginning (or first half or whatever) of varathron's mestigoth sounds a lot like the game of thrones title theme, altho' it precedes it by a few years

the band My Silent Wake has a great medieval vibe to their sound, it fits well with what you're looking for, i think

I think you'd really enjoy the album Onyx by Greek black metal band Nocternity. A couple of the songs are about Game of Thrones and the music is very enveloping atmospheric black metal which I'd imagine would fit nicely on a playlist with Summoning. It definitely brings out the medieval fantasy vibes, and the guitarist even calls himself Khal Drogo. I don't think their latest album Harps of the Ancient Temples has any GoT themed songs, but it's also worth a listen if you like the style.
