    There’s quite a bit to debate with composer Ramin Djawadi in terms of the most recent episode of Westworld, which options Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) and Caleb (Aaron Paul) exploring the secrets and techniques of the brand new Delos park upon which they’ve stumbled — and the present including two notable new cowl songs to its catalog, together with a full orchestra cowl of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.”

    “Enter Sandman” kicks in halfway via “Années Folles,” throughout an motion sequence that feels awfully acquainted: In “Temperance,” because the closing credit of the present point out this specific Delos park is known as, a brand new model of Hector (Nico Galàn) arrives to rob the Butterfly Membership (standing in for Sweetwater’s Mariposa Saloon).

    It’s clear that the Delos writers are simply recycling previous materials for this park’s storylines, however, Djawadi says, for the sequence he and the crew actively selected to not recycle “Paint It, Black” (the Rolling Stones cowl beforehand used for the Mariposa Saloon theft in Season 1 and an identical theft in ShogunWorld in Season 2). “Right here, we simply thought, let’s be Westworld, let’s combine it up. Let’s strive one other iconic music.”

    Seems Djawadi was an enormous Metallica fan as an adolescent, so he was tremendous excited to create this specific cowl. “There’s a bit trace of jazz, however it’s just about straight up extra rock and roll, relatively than attempting to swing, as a result of it’s an motion scene. There are some sections in there the place I nonetheless had the little little bit of jazz affect, however in any other case it’s very rock and roll.”
