We know a lot of you metalheads are pretty big gamers and that's what makes Pentakill so unique. Most of the skins are now Legacy skins, some are still regular league of legends skins. It's great for an old rocker like myself to be a part of this modern gaming music world, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to work with such a great team of talented people.
Pentakill Karthus was introduced to us in the role of a singer in the heavy metal band - Pentakill. He was, along with Olaf being inspired by Lemmy Killmister, Mordekaiser by GWAR (sort of), Karthus by Jørn Lande and Sona by Simone Simons. In short: one of CLG's players killed all five of TSM's players ("League of Legends" is a five-on-five game).
Update July 22, 2017: We didn't have to wait very long before getting to hear some of this new League of Legends album, as two singles from it are now up on YouTube. Now, taking a page out of Blizzard's infamous Elite Tauren Chieftain , it looks like Pentakill is set to become its own real-world band, with the "Smite and Ignite" album due out on June 3.
Update August 3, 2017: Lo and behold, the gods of metal have brought upon us a new album on this great day, as the full second Pentakill album is now available to stream and download. Pentakill skins for League of Legends are the skins released with the Pentakill theme.
For those not familiar with Pentakill and League of Legends : League of Legends is the worlds most popular online game with visits of more than 100 million players every month. It's also something that rarely happens in "League of Legends" competitive play: Teams form strategies against such devastation.
As Mordekaiser rose to meet the giant who had drawn the axe from the rock, he saw his old bandmates accompanied by a fiery, hellion-valkyrie from beyond. This is an officially licensed League of Legends Pentakill Tee Shirt. Classical look of the guitarist of the hard rock band and Mordekaiser is blindly following this path, path of the Master of Metal.
Even more surprising, the group turned out to be a virtual band made up of fictional members — vocalist Karthus, guitarist Mordekaiser, bassist Yorick, keyboardist Sona and drummer Olaf — embodied by an original skin line in the massively popular online game League of Legends.
Behind the scenes, the songs on Smite & Ignite were created by a rotating cast of professional metal musicians, including Jørn Lande (Jorn, Beyond Twilight, Masterplan) and ZP Theart (Skid Row, Dragonforce), as well as by the music composition and production team at League of Legends' parent company, Riot Games.
Both Ken and Keith are gamers, and League of Legends is their favorite game. Pentakill 2: Grasp of the Undying is out and ready to be streamed on Riot's official Pentakill website , just one day after the band's first music video ever was released. For those who are not familiar with them, Pentakill is a band that appears in the massively popular video game League of Legends.
In 2014 the Riot Games music label issued the band's first foray out of the video game realm, Smite & Ignite - an eight-track collection of appropriately punishing songs that was written completely in-house at Riot, and supported by the talents of studio musicians, including vocalists Jorn Lande (Masterplan) and ZP Theart (Dragonforce).
Pentakill Kayle also includes a new recall animation where Kayle jumps on a stage and starts rocking out before recalling back to base. Pentakill Kayle, my personal favorite, is presented Season 8 to us as a back - vocalist of the metal band. Riot Games was aware of Haven Agency and our extensive experience working with video game publishers and live entertainment promoters.
