I haven't been deep into the League of Legends scene for a while now, but this clip left even me dumbfounded. Karthus, Sona, Mordekaiser, Yorick, and Olaf are all due newer variations of their Pentakill skins and since this new album is already looking to be darker, hopefully, they'll be even more metal-inspired than before. The premium image across this t-shirt sees a detailed print inspired by the League of Legends Pentakill band, the design sees the Valoran band members in a detailed design with the rock n roll hand sign and metal guitar in hand.
"League of Legends" is a carefully-played tactical game, very different from twitch-based games like "Call of Duty." It's brazen for a single player on any team to take down the entire opposing team, but it's a risky move that paid off twice yesterday for two now number one teams.
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).
Entirely under the mainstream radar, the band's new CGI video, Mortal Reminder, notched up more than 3m views in less than 48 hours after its release - and the new album, Grasp of the Undying, seems destined to be a huge success. The original in-game band is composed of Mordekaiser, Karthus, Olaf, Sona, and Yorick.
For those not familiar with Pentakill and League of Legends : League of Legends is the worlds most popular online game with visits of more than 100 million players every month. It's also something that rarely happens in "League of Legends" competitive play: Teams form strategies against such devastation.
Pentakill is the most famous metal band in Valoran. Carve up the Crystal Scar, get wild in the Twisted Treeline, and join these guys in rocking League of Legends while the metal's hot. This time around, Pentakill is working on their follow-up album with hopes of once again creating music that is a good blend of metal and various aspects of the game itself.
Well from June 3 to June 9 you'll also be able to earn the Pentakill summoner icon by playing a game with any of the Pentakill skins (excluding One For All's), pentakill or you can grab it from the store for 250 RP or 1500 IP.

I like Kayle, I like League of Legends - despite quitting it - and I love UK esports. You can buy Pentakill Sona skin for 975 RP in the League of Legends in-game store. Skins released with this theme are Pentakill Yorick, Pentakill Sona, Pentakill Olaf, Pentakill Mordekaiser, Pentakill Karthus.
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.
I mean, given the response they got after "get jinxed" I shouldn't be surprised they went ahead and did more music, but I wasn't expecting a whole metal album. And that's smart, as death in "League of Legends" means wasted time. The greatest League of Legends metal band that Runeterra has ever witnessed has been quiet for a while, but it looks like the gang is getting back together soon according to a new Pentakill teaser video.
I really liked it. I do like metal so obviously I would but i'm surprised Riot actually did something metal not like some hard rock passed off as metal thing. We were able to chat exclusively with Lande over email and he told us about the making of the new album and how his Karthus persona has undergone a recent upgrade.
