Virtual heavy metal band PENTAKILL — featuring infernal lead vocalist Karthus, blazing axe-man Mordekaiser, enchanting keyboardist Sona, rumbling bassist Yorick, berserker drummer Olaf, and new member Kayle, a winged warrior goddess who sings songs presaging the end of the world — is breaking further out of the hundred-million-player League Of Legends gaming universe and onto the playlists of metalheads worldwide. 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.
Smite and Ignite is a metal album by the fictional band Pentakill from Riot Games , the developer of the video game League of Legends The band features a series of characters from the video game, and the album features songs based and named on items from it as well.
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.
Add some gaming style to your wardrobe with this awesome official League of Legends Pentakill t-shirt. In the newest patch, each Pentakill skin is getting a fresh coat of paint with new splash art, and in-game models are getting updated for Pentakill Mordekaiser, Pentakill Sona and Pentakill Karthus.
After the disastrous end to their last 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.
The Prophecy and From Fire Reborn are both Pentakill tracks with no substantial music or reference to an in-game item, rather they refer to their specific albums. You can buy Pentakill Karthus skin for 750 RP in the League of Legends in-game store. You can definitely pick Vayne up on a female voice within the group that's talking during the video, and the only female member of Pentakill is Sona, which many players will know doesn't talk at all.
Olaf's skull sticks double as grenades, Sona's keyboard comes with magical attacks as deadly as her concert piano chords are soothing and Mordekaiser's axe comes with its very own dragon. Pentakill Sona is a fiery red-haired keyboardist in the legendary Pentakill band.
In addition to this tight timeframe, we also had to get on the same page with the Riot Games music department, with the actual musicians who made the tracks, with the graphic designers who created the band members, and with the marketing team responsible for promoting the game and the album.
