Title - 'Into the Badlands: Season 2' (OST)
Artist - Trevor Yuile
'Into the Badlands,' the hit AMC television series from the producers of Smallville, mixes high caliber martial arts with a post-apocalyptic world approximately 500 years after a war left civilization in ruins.
Created by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar (Smallville) and starring Daniel Wu, Marton Csokas, Aramis Knight, Emily Beecham, Sarah Bolger and Orla Brady, the drama is loosely based on the classic Chinese tale Journey to the Westand; and tells the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment.
The first season soundtrack featured music by David Shephard, but released this past August 10th, 2018 via Varese Sarabande, Into the Badlands: Season 2 is all composed by Trevor Yuile.
Yuile is a Canadian composer best known for creating the score for the award winning and highly successful TV Show, Orphan Black. 'Into the Badlands: Season 2' features all of Trevor's musical high points during AMC's hit show, as well as songs from Alberta Hunter, Rag N' Bone Man and more.

With the post-apocalyptic scene set here for some martial arts combined stylistic acts, the incredible cinematography and invigorating fight sequences have obviously given Yuile a lot to work with musically.
From scene to scene to scene, it's obvious that he discovered richly textured characters, costumes, landscapes and story lines that conjured within him an immense wealth of musical ideas with which to play; as he created a sound and musical narrative for the TV series.
Even the inclusion of the uber-powerful, and highly emotive 'Human' from Rag’n’Bone Man seems to be the most perfect of fits for this small screen cinematic adventure. Without a shadow of a doubt, Yuile has created some of the most poignant compositions of his life here for season 2 of 'Into the Badlands.'
