Metal Westworld theme

Ramin Djawadi’s delicate TV theme becomes 100 times mightier.

We’ve long been fans of metal guitar YouTube legend Erock’s work. His face-melting Moonlight Sonata is a particular favourite at Classic FM Towers.

So we’re delighted that Erock has taken on Ramin Djawadi’s theme tune to sci-fi cowboy series Westworld. His version takes the rather minimal and creepy original, stretches it by an extra minute and inserts the bombast that you would expect from a seasoned axe-wielder (or expert android gunslinger).

Erock remarks: “Totally into this show for many reasons... Also a plus that Ramin Djawadi kills the score in these episodes.”
