A disabled game streamer has posted a video of himself getting one of League of Legends' rarest accomplishments without the use of his hands. 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.
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.
The overwhelming response to Pentakill was instant after the band released their debut EP, which cracked Billboard's Top 40 and debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Metal and Rock charts. League of Legends is one of the most popular games out there, and thousands of gamers carve themselves into legends and champions.
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.
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.
I really liked the print, as he likes both League of Legends and metal music. With Mordekaiser, Karthus, Yorick, Sona, Olaf, and now Kayle, sonic brutality has never ascended such heights before. We cover tournaments, teams, players, and personalities in League of Legends, Call of Duty, Halo, and Smite.
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.
Pentakill's Kayle is the rumored backup singer team; also the newbie of the group. So I'm going to ask people who play in and follow the competitive UK League of Legends scene what they think about Kayle's new Pentakill skin, aka PENTAKAYLE. At this moment Pentakill metal band has only one official music video, but it is just gorgeous.
In 2014, the Riot Games music label issued the band's first foray out of the video game realm, "Smite And Ignite" — an eight-track collection of appropriately punishing songs that was written completely in-house at popular Riot, and supported by the talents of studio musicians, including ZP Theart of DRAGONFORCE, Derek Sherinian of DREAM THEATER, Lohner and Lande.
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.
