Virtual heavy metal band PENTAKILL — featuring infernal lead vocalist Karthus, blazing axe-man Mordekaiser, enchanting keyboardist Sona, rumbling bassist Yorick, berserker drummer Olaf, and new member Kayle, a winged warrior goddess who sings songs presaging the end of the world — is breaking further out of the hundred-million-player League Of Legends gaming universe and onto the playlists of metalheads worldwide.

Video of Pentakill's live musical carnage” in Bandle City, performing Mortal Reminder from the new album Grasp of the Undying, recorded in the catacombs of the Shadow Isles. Then Sona is the scorpion-cum-keyboardist, Mordekaiser plays a guitar carved out of a battle-beaten great axe and steampunk ogre Olaf plays drums with sticks made of glowing human skulls.
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).
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.
The first band with whom he achieved a minor success was Vagabond , which also featured Ronni Le Tekrø , Morty Black and other former members of the Norwegian hard rock band TNT The self titled album, released in 1994, sold 10,000 copies in Norway, but the copies were dropped by label EMI.
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, ranked the Hansons told me, Pentakill helps League of Legends players keep track of hundreds of spells for teleporting, powering up, healing, and more.
Billed as the fictional land of Valoran's most famous rock band, the group is fronted by the demonic Karthus, joined by guitarist Mordekaiser, keyboardist Sona, bass player Yorick, drummer Olaf, and recently added golden warrior goddess Kayle on vocals.

In real life though, the man behind Karthus (the vocalist for League of Legends ” virtual band Pentakill ) is Jørn Lande, the famed Norwegian rocker who also works with Avantasia and his own band, Jorn.
Smite and Ignite is a metal album by the fictional band Pentakill from Riot Games , the developer of the video game League of Legends The band features a series of characters from the video game, and the album features songs based and named on items from it as well.
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.
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.
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.
