Pentakill, the in-game League of Legends heavy metal band, is getting a real-world album release. Conceived by California-based gaming gurus Riot Games in 2014, Pentakill exist purely in the imaginations of their creators - and the 100 million global fans of League of Legends , the multiplayer online battle arena game that spawned the band's members, Karthus the Deathsinger, Yorick, Sona, Olaf and lead guitarist Mordekaiser the Master of Metal.
A heavy metal band from the massively popular online video game League of Legends, Pentakill operates somewhere between the opulent, fantasy-driven power metal of Dragonforce and the cleverly constructed inside metal stylings of Dethklok. Gamepedia's League of Legends Esports wiki covers tournaments, teams, players, and personalities in League of Legends.
And to crank it up a notch, Mordekaiser, Sona, Karthus, Olaf, and Yorick are taking the stage with new splash art, in-game models, and an all new summoner icon. A green smoke suddenly formed and popped Karthus, the lead singer of the rock band. You can read more about the band and that album here , covering them was actually one of the very first articles that I ever wrote for Metal Insider.
Factor in the eye-popping visuals and explosive violence of League of Legends - witness the Mortal Reminder video for evidence - and Pentakill could hardly be more fitting (or preposterous) standard bearers for the love-in between gaming and metal fans, blurring the lines between so-called real music and digital fantasy in a way that no acts have managed before.
I mean, given the response they got after "get jinxed" I shouldn't be surprised they went ahead and did more music, but I wasn't expecting a whole metal album. And that's smart, as death in "League of Legends" means wasted time. The greatest League of Legends metal band that Runeterra has ever witnessed has been quiet for a while, but it looks like the gang is getting back together soon according to a new Pentakill teaser video.
Pentakill is a line of skins in the League of Legends representing many familiar champions in the form of the Runeterra's world greatest Metal group. In 2014, a metal band called Pentakill came seemingly out of nowhere and landed its debut EP, Smite & Ignite, in the Billboard Top 40 and at No. 1 on the iTunes Metal and Rock charts.
An in-game heavy metal band from the massively popular multi-player online video game League of Legends, Pentakill operates somewhere between the opulent, fantasy-driven power metal of Dragonforce and the gimmicky, yet cleverly constructed inside metal of Dethklok.
Pentakill's Kayle is the rumored backup singer team; also the newbie of the group. So I'm going to ask people who play in and follow the competitive UK League of Legends scene what they think about Kayle's new Pentakill skin, aka PENTAKAYLE. At this moment Pentakill metal band has only one official music video, but it is just gorgeous.
AND THAT'S WHEN THE BURNING FERRY BEARING KARTHUS, YORICK AND KAYLE RAN AGROUND ON SONA'S BASALT RING OF FIRE. The hunched figure of Yorick, awakened by Karthus and Kayle, was heading south, leaving a bloody trail behind. The band, cleverly named after the often unbelievable feat of killing five players at once in League of Legends with one character , exists seemingly to bring a taste of Metal to the League of Legends fanbase.
Entirely under the mainstream radar, the band's new CGI video, Mortal Reminder, notched up more than 3m views in less than 48 hours after its release - and the new album, Grasp of the Undying, seems destined to be a huge success. The original in-game band is composed of Mordekaiser, Karthus, Olaf, Sona, and Yorick.
After the disastrous end to their last ranked live performance, where Mordekaiser destroyed the entirety of the Freljordian crowd, Karthus gave the fateful order for Olaf to drum the Worldsplitter Rhythm” that sundered the land and brought down the icy realm's highest peak upon Mordekaiser.
