A Hilariously Drawn Out League Of Legends Pentakill
Pentakill, the in-game League of Legends heavy metal band, is getting a real-world album release. The Rift riffing, summoner shredding band Pentakill is bringing metal back to the Fields of Justice with their new album, Smite and Ignite. It's a Pentakill skin so has Kayle decked out in heavy metal-style armour, joining the likes of Pentakill Sona, Yorick, Karthus, Olaf and Mordekaiser.
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.
You can download their full album free from Riot, and enjoy hit head-banging tracks like Ohmwrecker”, Deathfire Grasp”, and Last Whisper” for as long as your blown, metalloid minds can handle. It's the image when you just get the pentakill in the League of Legends game but will be your face in the middle.
The end of Vagabond came with the reformation of TNT in 1996, and subsequently the band members went their separate ways, with Jørn joining a band formed in by Whitesnake former guitarists Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody called The Snakes After a tour with The Snakes playing mostly Whitesnake covers and the recording of an album released only in Japan called Once Bitten , Jørn was fired from the band and joined other projects, including the Symphonic Metal band Mundanus Imperium, which resulted on the album The Spectral Spheres Coronation.
Anyone familiar with League of Legends may have heard of the "Pentakill Skins" - a collection of skins for Karthus, Olaf, Sona, Mordekaiser and Yorick that transform them into the fictional heavy metal band of the same time. It was executed in the lovely Riot's way and have a beautiful SFX and VFX in it. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the Metal genre, even if they never played League of Legends at all.
Billed as the fictional land of Valoran's most famous rock band, the group is fronted by the demonic Karthus, joined by guitarist Mordekaiser, keyboardist Sona, bass player Yorick, drummer Olaf, and recently added golden warrior goddess Kayle on vocals.
You can buy Pentakill Kayle skin for 1350 RP in the League of Legends in-game store.

Then Sona is the scorpion-cum-keyboardist, Mordekaiser plays a guitar carved out of a battle-beaten great axe and steampunk ogre Olaf plays drums with sticks made of glowing human skulls.

If you could get a whole team full of Pentakill skins, then their recall animations would be an awesome sight.

Wield the voice of a hellion-valkyrie as you bring weaker warriors to their knees with relentless waves of operatic fury.
Yesterday the band released their very first music video for the track Mortal Reminder ,” showing the band in action for the first time outside of the video game itself, making it the third single off of their upcoming album Pentakill II: Grasp of the Undying.
We've also got the names of all the songs from the credits - aside from those two singles, we'll have "Frozen Heart," "Infinity Edge," "Rapid Firecannon," "Cull," "Mortal Reminder," "Dead Man's Plate," "The Blade of the Ruined King," and "The Hex Core mk-2." I never realised until now quite how metal the items in League of Legends sound.
