Varus' Theme, which many consider a Dark Reprise of Darius' martial song. The destruction that's left after the war is over.
Draven's Theme. Hear his audience scream Draven! as he executes yet another prisoner.
Rengar and Kha'zix's themes. Just like the two arch enemies themselves, these pieces contrast and clash with each other with drum and woodwind.
Diana's theme, Daylight's End. Sung by a Visual Designer at Riot, this song is commonly lauded as the best one thus far due to its soft yet chilling vocals. A later recording from Music of League of Legends Vol. 1 adds an extended strings section, and it all flows together beautifully.
Ask not the sun why she sets Why she shrouds her light away Or why she hides her glowing gaze When night turns crimson gold to grey
For silent falls the guilty sun As day to dark does turn One simple truth she dare not speak: Her light can only blind and burn
No mercy for the guilty Bring down their lying sun Blood so silver black by night Upon their faces pale white
Cruel moon, bring the end The dawn will never rise again.
Get Jinxed!, Jinx's theme mirrors Vi's in several ways. It's also notable for being the subject of Riot's first music video, featuring a dream sequence in which Jinx spreads her brand of mayhem across Piltover.
Jayce's theme. Uplifting and dramatic, fitting for a Science Hero, which also manages to incorporate elements of the main theme.
Nami's Theme, a wonderfully soothing tune. It was reorchestrated in Music of League of Legends Vol. 1 as Tidecaller, which further enhanced its beautifully gentle atmosphere with beautiful pianos, strings and woodwinds.
Tahm Kench's theme is a sinister southern guitar tune accompanied by a deep humming, perfect for the cunning con-man himself.
Kindred's theme is a beautiful, ghostly piece with powerful cello work, as ethereal and mysterious as Kindred themselves...
Jhin's theme starts off as a pumping, rhythmic piece, evocative of Jhin's work as seen by his victims, then transitions into a heavenly, choir-like theme, likely to represent how Jhin sees his own killings as beautiful.
Aurelion Sol's theme incredibly manages to be the perfect trifecta of alien strangeness, terrifying scope and booming grandiosity, fitting of the celestial star-creating/destroying dragon. It's Hans Zimmer-level blood pumping.
Taliyah's theme is an utterly ethereal piece begins with haunting vocals, only for it to transform into a bombastic yet delightful piece that sounds like something that would fit into Assassin's Creed!
Kled's theme certainly has the feel of a Noxian Conqueror's anthem with booming brass and wardrums, but the acoustic guitar sprinkled in gives off the impression that he's just not right in the head.
Yorick's theme is a wonderfully ominous track with funerary chimes and subdued choir before building up into a loud, terrifying, but beautiful climax, befitting of the newly re-imagined Shepard of Lost Souls.
Ivern's theme can only be described as "warm," being a vibrant, but gently pleasant and relaxing track befitting of the Green Father.
Camille's theme perfectly suits the character in a beautifully suspenseful piece, with classy harpsichords and violins meshing perfectly against loud drums, full string sections and light synthesizers.
PROJECT: Yi, the theme of the Legendary skin of the same name and the PROJECT skins as a whole, which is a beautiful mix of Drumstep and small parts with classical instruments. During the second wave of PROJECT skins, we got PROJECT: Ashe, whose theme is comparatively much more heroic while still combining with awesome EDM sounds.
Bit Rush goes for the for a chiptune inspired piece, perfectly going along with the ever-increasing Arcade skin line. This was later followed up with Bit Rush: Arcade Ahri, which continues to be playfully wonderful and upbeat chiptune-hybrid music.
After the second wave of Star Guardian skins were released on the PBE, we were first teased with Star Guardian, a short, but wonderfully sweet ambient piece to represent the line, especially when the ethereal vocals kick in halfway. Burning Bright is the full piece, and like the anime theme songs it's modeled after, it's a cheerful, yet emotional pop tune. For the Japanese version, Endless Starlight 〜命のキラメキ〜 goes all out with different instrumentation and evokes the emotional action of the Magical Girl trope in full force.
Elementalist Lux is already shaping up to be considered a classic League of Legends piece, and one listen will be able to explain why. It slowly transitions from gently beautiful piano and vocals to an epic, booming orchestra and back, and it flows incredibly well; it's absolutely mesmerizing.
Welcome to Summoner's Rift! Unassuming and wholesome, the ambient music that everyone has listened to at least once. The long awaited update to SR came with this login theme.
Starting with the Avarosan's Theme, a calm and soothing theme, exemplifying Ashe's quest for peace and prosperity. As the largest and richest tribe, the Avarosan control the fertile lands of Freljord and they share their goods freely with allied tribes.
Following afterwards is the Winter's Claw. Sejuani's tribe and by far the most warlike. The spirited, uplifting and dramatic theme reflects Sejuani's traditional Freljordian views and her allies' readiness to wage war.
And ending with the Frostguard, Lissandra's tribe. The song reflects Lissandra's and the Frostguard's decieving and insidious nature, and her tenuous alliance with Trundle and his tribe. The Frostguard and their leader hide behind a mask of benevolence and seniority, while they plot to overtake Freljord through Trundle's army and bring back their Frozen Watchers.
Just about all the World Championship themes can be considered Awesome Music:
For the Season 3 World Championship, Riot presented us with this login orchestral theme to get us hyped, and during the finals, they presented us with "Hybrid Worlds", combining a thrilling orchestral section with epic guitar riffs from none other than Wes Borland. There was also the Opening Ceremony, featuring live performances of "Hybrid Worlds" and "The Purifier's Resolve" by the original artists!
For Season 4 Worlds, there was "Warriors", signifying the epic battle for the S4 world cup, which is especially awesome it's done by Imagine Dragons! Anyone who's tried to get better at League understands exactly what the lyrics mean, and it's almost univerally recognized as the best Worlds theme yet.
Then for the Season 5 World Championship, we got "Worlds Collide" by Nicki Taylor, which continued Warriors' trend of being an awesome celebratory anthem towards the competitive scene, and it's just as amazing.
Season 7's "Legends Never Die" (featuring US pop group Against the Current) is a rousing epic anthem to the Worlds Championship. The lyrics are especially meaningful this year as they saw the defeat of 3 time world champions SKT and particularly the fall and humiliation of legendary player Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok.
In celebration of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Riot released a line of skins and login screen featuring "Legends of the Field." It's sure to get your blood pumping for a good game!
Pentakill returned with another music video for NALCS 2017... Mortal Reminder, wherein Pentakill overruns Bandle City, turning it and its denizens into a monument of metal. Between the excellence of the track itself, and the perfect timing of the video, one is hard pressed to not be as awestruck as the Yordles.
Youtube Commenter:Oh my METAL GOD!
Welcome to Planet Urf. U.R.F. is back baby! The return of the beloved game mode was brought back in style with this hard hitting tune.
As We Fall is a new music video that ties into Varus' new lore. Featuring gorgeous, psychedelic visuals and a haunting Alternative Rock/Electro melody, it shows how Varus was released from his imprisonment by two hunters, Valmar and Kai. The lyrics, when read through, give the impression of a desperate rescue attempt... which, when analyzed closer, make it clear that the singer is actually Valmar crossing the Despair Event Horizon to try and save Kai.
