Replays With Pentakills
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.
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).
If you could get a whole team full of Pentakill skins, then their recall animations would be an awesome sight. In-game, Pentakill is a five-person band made up of Mordekaiser, Karthus, Yorick, Sona, and Olaf. Pentakill Kayle is headlining the League store at 1350 RP. Wield the voice of a hellion-valkyrie as you bring weaker warriors to their knees with relentless waves of operatic fury.
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.
I really liked it. I do like metal so obviously I would but i'm surprised Riot actually did something metal not like some hard rock passed off as metal thing. We were able to chat exclusively with Lande over email and he told us about the making of the new album and how his Karthus persona has undergone a recent upgrade.
Pentakill is the most famous metal band in Valoran. Carve up the Crystal Scar, get wild in the Twisted Treeline, and join these guys in rocking League of Legends while the metal's hot. This time around, Pentakill is working on their follow-up album with hopes of once again creating music that is a good blend of metal and various aspects of the game itself.
Pentakill has a brand new album out called Pentakill II: Grasp of the Undying on which Lande, as Karthus, sings five songs. Because debut album for Pentakill, the League of Legends-inspired band, has been released and is now available to download for free. Pentakill Olaf decided to take the image of an aggressive hard rock drummer, who is equally well equipped for both the battlefield and the drum set.
Here, a ‘deathfire grasp' was one of the more powerful ways to blast your foes into neon smithereens and Pentakill isn't just the ultimate achievement of slaughtering five enemies in one go, but also the name of the in-game rock band made up of character ‘skins' made to look like face-melting Medieval metal musicians.
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 Vayne League of Legends.
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.
Also in the same year, Jørn recorded his first solo album called Starfire , which featured mostly cover songs and several band members from his past and current bands as the musicians of the album. Engineered and Produced by Riot Games in Los Angeles, CA and London, UK.
