The Game Of Thrones and Aquaman star recruited Archspire frontman Oli Peters to help him perfect his guttural growl for the new Apple TV+ series See. Momoa plays Baba Voss – the father of twins born centuries after a virus decimated the human race, leaving the survivors blind. With the twins born with the ability to see, Voss must protect his tribe from a queen who will stop at nothing to capture the children.
Indiewire report that the Game Of Thrones and Aquaman star is a fan of death metal band Archspire, with Momoa asking frontman Oil Peters to train him for a scene where Voss rallies his troops in a Haka-style ceremony prior to battle. Peters tells the website “Jason has such an interest in music and has done aggressive acting scenes before, so he was a quick learner for this."
In December last year, Momoa told Metal Hammer "Aquaman's pretty metal. I know no one thinks that, but Aquaman's metal. I kind of build my characters off of metal songs. Conan The Barbarian was really heavy Pantera, I'd say Aquaman was probably mostly built out of Tool and Metallica albums Kill 'Em All and Ticks And Leeches, if I want to get specific. There's a lot of Sabbath in there too.”
