Frequencies – The Music of League of Legends

Riot Documentary

"Music and games share an intertwined history stretching back to neon-soaked arcades and dusty living rooms crowded with tangles of twisting plastic controller cords. From chiptune scores to the sweeping symphonies of expansive fantasy worlds,the relationship shared between games and music simultaneously elevates both art forms. Frequencies is a behind-the-scenes look at that harmony at Riot; the moment when creativity, collaboration, and passion collide to forge and reinforce story through music."

League of Legends Music The Curse of the Sad Mummy04:20

League of Legends Music The Curse of the Sad Mummy

First Verse:
Every child in Valoran has heard the tale before,
About the cursed mummy boy who felt his heart no more.
So sad and lorn, the helpless lad, Amumu was his name,
He ventured out to find a friend and learn about his bane.

Second Verse:

For many years, young Amumu traveled through the lands,
Determined to make friends, if only they would understand,
But even when Amumu stood upon the ledge of home,
His hope would disappoint him, and he would remain alone.

Third Verse:

But then the curse began to whisper in his ear,
And would confirm what was Amumu’s biggest fear,
It pledged that never shall someone become his friend,
It pledged that he shall be alone until his end.

Forth Verse:

The sorrow and despair,
Became too much to bear.

Fifth Verse:

The moment when Amumu realized what he had done,
Too late it was, for him, for them, the evil curse had won.
The anger and the anguish overwhelmed his fragile soul,
And caused a wicked tantrum that he never could control.

One simple truth she dare not speak:
Her light can only blind and burn

Upon their faces pale white

Cruel moon, bring the end

The dawn will never rise again[3]

Right now I'm feeling ignored!
So can you try a little harder?
I'm really getting bored!

Come on, shoot faster,
Just a little bit of energy!
I wanna try something fun right now,
I guess some people call it anarchy!
Let's blow this city to ashes,

But not for long 'cause it'll get jinxed!

So much better, so much fun.
Let's start from scratch and, blow up the sun!

First Verse
Fellow armsmen, I ask you:
"Will you follow me tonight to break their spine,
and reclaim what once was mine?"
Those cravens, backstabbed me, deceived me.
Never shall I tolerate their crimes again.
Now let the hunt begin (yeah!)
Seven thousands souls, scared and daunted, such a tale of woe.
Not too long ago, this village was a golden scene of hope.
Chorus
Call down the reckoning,
to bring back hope and peace, restore our gloria,
to live forever (yeah!)
Bring down the dark regime,
I know how to unleash eternal power,
lead us to order.
I am the The Lightbringer item.png Lightbringer! (yeah!)
I am the Lightbringer!
Second Verse
Now listen, fellow warriors, I ask you:
"Should my campaign come to an end?"
There's way more to avenge (woah!)
Fifteen million souls, living in this realm without much hope,
not too long ago, this kingdom was a golden state of hope.
(Yeah! Ah, ah, ah, ah, oh!)
Chorus
Call down the reckoning,
to bring back hope and peace, restore our gloria,
to live forever (yeah!)
Bring down the dark regime,
I know how to unleash eternal power,
lead us to order.
I am the Lightbringer!
Bridge
(Woah!) Call down the reckoning,
bring back hope and peace, restore our gloria,

Lyrics
Pentakill II - Cull05:16

Pentakill II - Cull

Cut down, one by one
No sound remains
Don’t fear if death finds you, this day
Are you with me
Let us savor the pain
Do you hear the distant sound
Calling your name
In time, all of us are forgotten
The ones that don’t belong to the pages of history
But as my forefathers, I take to the open seas
And as long before, I follow and don’t ask more
Passed down, long before, the stories of old
This time, I will not be forgotten
I won’t be towed along with the feeble and the enemy
But as my forefathers, I take to the open seas
And as long before, I follow and don’t ask more
Passed down, long before, the stories of old
And won’t be called upon


Pentakill II - Mortal Reminder04:05

Pentakill II - Mortal Reminder

Blinded by hate brought by the fall
As I swear death to all
You will feel my vengeance
As I claim your mortal soul
I will punish and destroy
Those responsible for this ploy
I will seek a thousand deaths
I will bring a thousand years of war
All that I had taken away
My home is gone, and my love ones slain
For every sleep claims a piece of me
Every waking moment, every single dream
As the masses came
Like a shadow through this land
They laid siege to all we ever had
I stood strong, I was honor bound
I stand defiant, I stand ever proud
I am the chosen
I am the guardian, the guardian
Now I seek the blood of those
Who claimed the innocent
I will hunt the enemy to the last
I will banish and rejoice
The final breath of foes
You will see what you have made
You will see what I have finally become
All that I had laid to the waste
My spirit broken and just memories remain
For every day claims a piece of me
Every waking hour claims my inner peace
My inner peace
As the masses came
Like a shadow through this land
They laid siege to all we ever had
I stood strong, I was honor bound
I stand defiant, I stand ever proud
I am the chosen
I am the guardian, the guardian


Pentakill II - Tear of the Goddess04:01

Pentakill II - Tear of the Goddess

The unknown terror
That stood alone
Passed from the days of the early suns
Through worlds of lost belief
Laid waste and buried deep
Summoned to be set up to fall
But there’s no fear

That lives inside this soul

Inside this world
There is no way back to forgiving us
Undone, deliverer
The sinful and the saviors of the innocent
And so
Keepers of old
Keep us from cold
Let us fight once more
Till our honor is restored
The unknown terror
That lives below
Breaths the flames from the dying suns
And lives to wake the dying ones
The dying ones
The dying ones
(The dying ones)
(The dying ones)
Inside this world
There is no way back to forgiving us
Undone, deliverer
The sinful and the saviors of the innocent
And so
Keepers of old
Keep us from cold
Let us fight once more
Till our honor is restored


Pentakill II - Infinity Edge04:00

Pentakill II - Infinity Edge

Beyond the lands of dreams
I hear the call of riches
Word of waters blessed unnatural
Granting power of gods to men
Under the distant sun is my calling
I walk the lands
That death cannot conquer
And through the unforgiving worlds
The battle lays in wait
Seeking the way
That leads me to the power of the edge
The edge
I'm living and dying a thousand lives
And it’s taken its toll on me this time
The edge cares not so why should I
Because I breath the air of immortals
And I'll be the true invincible
The edge is my destiny
So far from home I'm reeling
I've seen the fall of friends
The end of the road approaching
I will have my victory
I will not cease to be
You will not ever stop me
I won't give up the dream
You cannot ever stop me
Seeking the way
That leads me to the power of the edge
I'm living and dying a thousand lives
And it’s taken its toll on me this time
The edge cares not so why should I
Because I breath the air of immortals
And I'll be the true invincible
The edge is my destiny
I'm living and dying a thousand lives
And it’s taken its toll on me this time
The edge cares not so why should I
Because I breath the air of immortals
And I'll be the true invincible
The edge is my destiny
My destiny
My destiny
My destiny
My destiny


Pentakill II - Dead Man’s Plate04:50

Pentakill II - Dead Man’s Plate

Is there reason, in this life
We call our own
So many misguided visions
And trusting deceit
And in our shallow pursuit of truth
We lost ourselves
May the storms gather
May the cinders roam
Those that will die will still remember
You drank deep and you paid the price
(What did you think you would find)
Answer the dark whisper
And you will tear this world apart
Our world apart
When the walls came down
We we’re left abandoned here
There's no soul inside us
We're just all flesh and bone
To wander the dead lands forever
Will we ever get the chance
Will we ever get the chance
To show them
So many forgotten and we live on
In the city that once was timeless
You drank deep and you paid the price
(What did you think you would find)
Answer the dark whisper
And you will tear this world apart
Our world apart
You will tear this world apart


Pentakill II - The Hex Core mk-203:27

Pentakill II - The Hex Core mk-2

Is that all you’ve got to say
Cause this is not another game
Not one that you wanna play
Step, by step, by step
Death march to your grave
Is that all you’ve got to say
Cause this is not another game
Not one that you wanna play
Step, by step, by step
Death march to your grave
There’s no one left you can blame
A lonely war dance of pain
Step, by step, by step
Death march to your grave
Is that all you’ve got to say
Is that all you’ve got to say
Step, by step, by step
Death march to your grave


Pentakill II - The Bloodthirster04:48

Pentakill II - The Bloodthirster

Cast down the weak
Those who deceived us
Those who would let us burn
Liars and cheats
Brittle and weak
Another day will come
Crawling on your knees right to the end
I let you pretend you had your last days
Calling for me to disappear
I cannot be so easily sent forth
As you descended on them
You carry their memories of endless pain
As remnants to their end
One after one
You sever them, sever them
Sever
Sever, sever your demons deep within
A shadow that’s been long instilled
Cast down the weak
Those who deceived us
Those who would let us burn
Liars and cheats
Brittle and weak
Another day will come
Torment so easily dispensed
You tried to break our will but you failed
Calling the serpentine flame
Until we were just dust and remains
As you descended on them
You carry their memories of endless pain
As remnants to their end
One after one
You sever them, sever them
Sever
Cast down the weak
Those who deceived us
Those who would let us burn
Liars and cheats
Brittle and weak
Another day will come
Cast down the weak
Those who would flee us
Those who would let us burn
Liars and cheats
Feeble and weak
I see them
Another day will
Another day will
Another day will come


Pentakill II - Frozen Heart05:01

Pentakill II - Frozen Heart

Up here on the roof of the world
Up here on the roof of the world
Long have we sought to ascend this place
A life of servitude to omens
The elders have promised us long before
With evil banished to the wastelands
Hands of the chosen will extend to us
Upon the roof of this world
Distant voices calling for the final fight
We will answer with victory
Long have we fought for these lands
In the shadows and the stories of the promised light
Now to take our place beyond
Up here on the roof of the world
Up here on the roof of the world
Where we are sworn to guard no more
Up here on the roof of the world
Long have we fought to protect this place
These haunted dreams never ending
Clinching to the promises of life reborn
Upon the roof of this world
Distant voices calling for the final fight
We will answer with victory
Long have we fought for these lands
In the shadows and the stories of the promised light
Now to take our place beyond
Here on the roof of the world
In the cradle of the storms
Where vengeful winds cut to the bone
And there's no turning back
(Here on the roof of the world)
(Here on the roof of the world)
(Here on the roof of the world)
Up here on the roof of the world
Up here on the roof of the world
Where we are sworn to guard no more
Up here on the roof of the world


Pentakill II - Rapid Firecannon04:14

Pentakill II - Rapid Firecannon

A forgotten place inside the lonely tower
Tear it down with a metal roar
The war eternal, I assail the unassailable
A second release unhaunted by my past
Beneath the marshlands
Calling forth the night
Buried deep a weapon forged in fire
Fathers and sons their kin laid to waste
(An evil is renewed)
Light up
The night with flames and cinder
For I am renewed
(Down in flames)
(Feel the kick and watch them burn)
Light up
Caught in the crossfire Overwhelming firepower
(Now return to hell)
(In a firestorm)
Out with the old
In with the new world order
Die or obey the choice is yours
Undetected, into the spider’s web
Taking it apart slowly piece by piece
Find a shadow to hide me, and I wait
Tricksters and spellweavers beware
With this flame I culled the weak
Made my nation strong again
Well now they're all dead and gone
Dead and gone
With this blade
I call the weak
Make my nation strong again
Beneath the marshlands
Calling forth the night
Buried deep a weapon forged in fire
Fathers and sons, their kin laid to waste
(An evil is renewed)
Light up
The night with flames and cinder
For I am renewed
(Down in flames)
(Feel the kick and watch them burn)
Light up
Caught in the crossfire
Overwhelming firepower
(Now return to hell)
(In a firestorm)

Pentakill II - From Fire Reborn

Born of shadow. Forged in flame. Metal as hell.
  • Their last performance ended the band - and the lives of the audience.
But Pentakill didn’t stay dead for long,
and now no stage can escape the Grasp of the Undying.

More than Game Music: Making Warsongs

BY RUMTUMTUMMERS [5]

Music has the power to tell incredible stories, and we’ve always been interested in finding new and exciting opportunities that harness this power. Smite and Ignite was a celebration of all things metal. DJ Sona was our way of exploring music that impacts gameplay (and vice-versa). So when we finished work on The Music of League of Legends, Vol 1. and started thinking about our next project, we knew we wanted to go big. Riot Records, our internal name for “the team that does album stuff,” had just the idea: an album that could serve as the soundtrack to the 2016 ranked season.

Playlist origins

Warsongs is meant to be music that amps players up for League and puts them in the ladder-climbing mindset. Riot Records producer Tyler Eltringham explains its origin: “We released a metal album, and a soundtrack. So then everyone started thinking, ‘Okay, what next? What’s the next big idea?’” Those conversations took the the team toward the idea of an album designed to evoke a feeling of competitiveness and forward momentum. “What, we asked, would inspire players to push harder, to queue again?”

...Riot Records actively looks for musicians who love games and can find inspiration in League for these cool collaborations.

Electronic music felt like the natural choice, both because of its popularity in the League community and because of the number of EDM artists with close ties to games and gaming culture. “We’ve seen so many streamers listening to EDM while they stream,” says Eltringham, “and we knew there were tons of artists in EDM who are either huge League fans or huge gamers. It already feels like a natural part of the game.”

Dev manager Toa Dunn adds, “A lot of EDM musicians trace their influences back to hearing music in games—it seemed cool to have it all loop back around on itself this way.”

“Besides, part of what makes Riot Records unique as a team,” says Eltringham, “is that most of the effort is focused on finding people to work with externally. We have amazing in-house composers working on music for the game, but Riot Records actively looks for musicians who love games and can find inspiration in League for these cool collaborations.”

With the genre decided, the Riot Records team was ready to move into production.

For games, but not for a game

The team started by building a list of potential artists for the project. Says Dunn, “It was basically a blue-sky collection of people we’d love to work with.” From there, the team vetted each artist based on their gamer creds, musical style, and understanding of the project. Dunn says that the team asked questions like: “Do they play League, are they part of gaming culture, do they ‘get’ the League community? Will this person be accessible, and does it feel like an authentic fit?”

What would be the point if artists were forced to match some sound the team imagined? It would be an insane waste of talent and probably would limit the album, quality-wise.

Eltringham emphasizes the importance of finding artists with genuine connections to gaming, saying, “It wasn’t about finding big names for the big names. It had to be musicians who really connected to what Warsongs was trying to do, who had a sense of ‘This is how music gets me excited and hyped when I play games I love.’” The team also placed a big emphasis on the idea of variety—with “EDM” being more of an umbrella term than an actual genre, it was important that Warsongs run the stylistic gamut from big room anthems to dirtier dubstep, progressive house, and more. “Good gaming music to one person might be the opposite to another,” says Dunn, “so the team focused on sound diversity within the album.”

The Riot Records team also stresses the importance of letting each artist’s sound shine through in their tracks. “It was tricky,” says Dunn. “A lot of artists are used to working with companies who are like, ‘Take this and make a video game song.’ That wasn’t the goal here.” Artists needed to take the core idea and run with it for Warsongs to hit its full potential.

"What would be the point if artists were forced to match some sound the team imagined?" Eltringham adds. "It would be an insane waste of talent and probably would limit the album, quality-wise.”

Getting hype

Riot Records designed Warsongs from its foundation to be something that exists outside of League while still being inextricably connected to it. “It would be so cool if players take the album and bring it outside of the game, to their workouts or wherever they need to feel amped,” Eltringham says, “and to have this very League thing end up in places far beyond a second monitor or tab.” Riot Records, as a team, is just hopeful that players like the album as much as they do, and that it provides players the extra energy they need to climb the ranked ladder. “If you go to a basketball game, you hear jock jams, right? Those songs say, ‘It’s game time.’ Hopefully, Warsongs can be that for League—fuel for the fire,” says Dunn.
