League of Legends recently released their newest champion, Diana - The Scorn of the Moon. To promote and celebrate this event, they've updated their launcher's splash screen and background music. Additionally the background music now sports lyrics.(for the first time to my knowledge)

Some searching has taught me that the song is titled Embrace the Heresy, but I cannot find who the vocalist of the song is. Who is she?

  • The song is very similar to the elven songs from TLOTR, perhaps the same vocalist?

  • Has similarities but doesn't sound like Enya. Don't know though, someone unknown with lots of computer modifications probably.

  • @Dbemerlin was enya who sung the TLOTR elven songs? I didn't know that, although now that you mention it, it does sound like her.

    @Ender We are a Q&A site about gaming.The question is not about gaming. It doesn't matter whether it is a problem or not. Identifying music has no part in playing LoL.

The vocalist goes by the name Saiyaka and she is a graphic designer for Riot Games. She posted here on her tumblr about it, along with a link to the following video:

You can find other posts on the official boards referring to her singing here and here:

Fun fact: The graphic designer who sang this song also made the unique targeting reticle for Diana's Q. :)

In addition, you can check the official League of Legends soundcloud here for the song.
