Pentakill, the League of Legends inspired rock group, has come out with a few new singles which can only mean one thing. And today marks the release of their 8-track album, appropriately titled "Smite and Ignite." Created as a gift for "metal-loving League of Legends players," you can download the entire album for free here The album will also be available for purchase through digital music retailers for those of you who prefer paid services to organize your music collections.
Pentakill Kayle is a common skin that was released in August 2017. In 2008, Jørn Lande lent his voice to the rock opera bands Ayreon on the album 01011001 and Avantasia on the album The Scarecrow , both released in January 2008. While not officially done by Riot Games, YouTube weapon creators Man At Arms: Reforged created the Nameless Blade — the signature weapon of Yasuo in the game.
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.
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 Riot, and supported by the talents of studio musicians, including ZP Theart of DRAGONFORCE, Derek Sherinian of DREAM THEATER, Lohner and Lande.
Like before I've been working closely with the great Riot Games team in LA, and this time around we are aiming for a full length album with Karthus as captain of the vocal ship. In addition, the Hansons told me, Pentakill helps League of Legends players keep track of hundreds of spells for teleporting, powering up, healing, and more.
The new tour is bringing more than music to League of Legends this week. Billed as the fictional land of Valoran's most famous rock band, the quintet is fronted by the demonic Karthus, and rounded out by drummer Olaf, bass player Yorick, keyboardist Sona, and guitarist Mordekaiser.
Recorded in the catacombs of the Shadow Isles, the album was engineered and produced by Riot Games in Los Angeles, CA and London, UK; with mixing and mastering duties being handled by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, HEAVEN SHALL BURN, EPICA, DORO etc.). Pentakill Kayle is the newest member of the group and provides excellent backing vocals for the band.
Grasp of the Undying was recorded in the catacombs of the Shadow Isles , and engineered and produced by Riot Games in Los Angeles, CA and London, UK. It was also mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Circus Maximus, Anubis Gate, etc.). Lyric videos for the pre-released songs ‘Tear Of The Goddess' and ‘The Bloodthirster' have already racked up over a million views between them, thanks to the unique bond the gamer has to the band.
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.
The end of Vagabond came with the reformation of TNT in 1996, and subsequently the high elo band members went their separate ways, with Jørn joining a band formed in by Whitesnake former guitarists Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody called The Snakes After a tour with The Snakes playing mostly Whitesnake covers and the recording of an album released only in Japan called Once Bitten , Jørn was fired from the band and joined other projects, including the Symphonic Metal band Mundanus Imperium, which resulted on the album The Spectral Spheres Coronation.
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.
