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.
The result, released just recently on the iTunes app store, allows League of Legends players to quickly check up on the strengths and skills of one of those 100+ champion characters. Seven new Pentakill icons are also available for 250 RP each: Pentakill Kayle Icon, Pentakill II icon, Pentakill Karthus Icon, Pentakill Olaf icon, Pentakill Yorick icon, Pentakill Sona icon, and the Pentakill Mordekaiser icon.
And Pentakill Kayle barely in the video AS SHE DESERVES. In-game, a pentakill is a distinguished achievement of single-handedly killing all enemy champions in short succession. Later on, Jørn got together with guitarist Tore Østby (ex- Conception ) and drummer John Macaluso to form the progressive metal band Ark and record their first self titled album in 1999.
Lyrically the songs are made specifically to fit the League of Legends” concept, and even though they might work also in real life symbolically, it wouldn't feel natural to perform more than one song or a shorter medley if it was a part of a Jorn or Avantasia live set.
For this project to achieve success, we had to be on the same page with the Riot Games music department, with the actual musicians who made the tracks, with the streamer graphic designers who created the band members, and with the marketing team responsible for promoting the game and the album - no small task to say the least.
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 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.
You can buy Pentakill Mordekaiser skin for 975 RP in the League of Legends in-game store. The teams are considered rivals, and CLG lost the last five games against TSM. In real life though, the man behind Karthus (the vocalist for League of Legends ” virtual band Pentakill ) is Jørn Lande, the famed Norwegian rocker who also works with Avantasia and his own band, Jorn.
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.
In 2014 the Riot label issued the band's first foray out of the video game realm, an eight-track collection of appropriately punishing songs titled Smite and Ignite that relied on the talents of session musicians, including vocalists Jorn Lande (Masterplan) and ZP Theart (Dragonforce).
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.
The video, you'll notice something that makes it seem as though there's a chance we might be getting some additional Pentakill skins for other champions besides the five listed above. With the exception of a show for the League of Legends Brazilian Championship, many believed the band would simply fade into obscurity in the game's long and storied history.
