Composer Stemage provides zany and explosive rhythm-linked rock soundtrack to League of Legends spin-off by Riot Forge and Choice Provisions

Composer Stemage in conjunction with Riot Forge is thrilled to make available the soundtrack to Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story. Available on PC, Switch, and soon, Netflix Games, Hextech Mayhem is a fast-paced rhythm runner where every action has an explosive reaction and no amount of mayhem is too much. Players take on the role of hexplosives expert Ziggs as they rampage through the neighborhoods of Piltover. Stemage–best known for his work on Steven Universe, Bubsy: Paws on Fire, and founding/playing guitar in Metroid Metal and other bands–serves up an appropriately eclectic soundtrack touching on everything from high-energy cartoon metal to zany electronic tunes across 30 tracks. The Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story soundtrack is now available on streaming platforms:

“This was a fun and challenging project,” comments Stemage. “Not only did we create the sound for our versions of Ziggs, but we went to great lengths to marry the gameplay and music together. Every ‘hit’ in the music and ‘prompt’ in the game are linked together. If you learn the song and watch for additional environmental cues, not only will you wipe the level clean and achieve the coveted Challenger rank, but you are also in lock step with the music. The songs are eccentric, experimental, and surprisingly heavy at times! Since we keep the gameplay speed steady throughout the game, we play a lot with time changes and new mechanics to create challenges for the player. It was a blast to work on.”
