Sometimes you secure Baron and just head on back to base. Olaf's skull sticks double as grenades, Sona's keyboard comes with magical attacks as deadly as her concert piano chords are soothing and Mordekaiser's axe comes with its very own dragon. Pentakill Sona is a fiery red-haired keyboardist in the legendary Pentakill band.
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.
In addition to this tight timeframe, we also had to get on the same page with the Riot Games music department, with the actual musicians who made the tracks, with the graphic designers who created the band members, and with the marketing team responsible for promoting the game and the album.
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 though there's a chance we might be getting streamer 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.
JL: Pentakill is still so fresh and new that it doesn't seem right to start playing songs from the two albums, especially since there hasn't been any Pentakill tour yet or individual shows to establish the band as a live act in the global music scene.
