August Burns Red must be fans of HBO’s Westworld, as the band shared their rendition of the popular theme music. Guitarist JB Brubaker revealed that he originally started the cover back in 2018 but finally finished it this summer.
“The soundtrack to Westworld has been a favorite of mine as long as the HBO series has existed. I started working on a metal version of the main theme to the show back in 2018, but pushed it to the backburner as other projects took priority. When COVID sent us into lockdown, the first thing I did with my time at home was finish the Westworld cover. We recorded it in the summer of 2020 and I’m really proud of how it came out. I hope fans of the show will feel we did it justice!”
The original theme was created by Ramin Djawadi and can be heard below along with the ABR version.
