Killing all five members of the opposing team within a few seconds of one another in League of Legends is such an impressive feat that it has its own name: "pentakill." Like many awesome League plays, it's also old hat by pro players' standards. In 2011, Jorn released his second live album with footage from the concert of the 2010 Sweden Rock Festival, the album was called Live in Black 12 Also in 2011, he was a guest on female singer Amanda Somerville 's first metal project Trillium singing on the vocal duet track 'Scream It'.
The likes of Motley Crue's Tommy Lee, Danny Lohner of Nine Inch Nails and a plethora other metal big-hitters record actual music related to the game, some of which has already hit the Billboard Top 40 and garnered millions of YouTube streams. And so Yorick slept beneath the desert until Karthus and Kayle prised open his tomb.
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.
AND THAT'S WHEN THE BURNING FERRY BEARING KARTHUS, YORICK AND KAYLE RAN AGROUND ON SONA'S BASALT RING OF FIRE. The hunched figure of Yorick, awakened by Karthus and Kayle, was heading south, leaving a bloody trail behind. The band, cleverly named after the often unbelievable feat of killing five players at once in League of Legends with one character , exists seemingly to bring a taste of Metal to the League of Legends fanbase.
The video, you'll notice something that makes it seem as twitch 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.
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.
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.
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).
Right after in 2000, he also made part of the American hard rock band Millenium, led by guitarist Ralph Santolla , and recorded the vocals for their album Hourglass. The concept in general belongs in League of Legends,” and should be performed by Pentakill.
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.
Pentakill Kayle also includes a new recall animation where Kayle jumps on a stage and starts rocking out before recalling back to base. Pentakill Kayle, my personal favorite, is presented to us as a back - vocalist of the metal band. Riot Games was aware of Haven Agency and our extensive experience working with video game publishers and live entertainment promoters.
