Groundbreaking virtual heavy metal band Pentakill – featuring lead vocalist Karthus, blazing axe-man Mordekaiser, enchanting keyboardist Sona, bassist Yorick, berserker drummer Olaf, and new member Kayle, a winged warrior goddess who sings songs presaging the end of the world – are breaking further out of the 100 million-player ‘League of Legends‘ gaming universe and onto the playlists of metal heads worldwide. Their second release, ‘II: Grasp Of The Undying‘, has hit international all major digital streaming platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, and more.
In conjunction with the album’s release, ‘League of Legends‘ and Pentakill are streaming ‘II: Grasp Of The Undying‘ in full via YouTube and the Pentakill music landing page here: http://pentakill.leagueoflegends.com.
At the same locations, you can also witness the brand new state-of-the-art, cinematic animated music video for the punishing track, ‘Mortal Reminder‘ which you can watch below:
‘II: Grasp Of The Undying‘ features not only the skills of League of Legends developer Riot Games’ most passionate in-house composers, songwriters, and producers (who also happen to be die-hard metal heads), but an elite list of metal, rock and electronic music heavyweights. ‘II: Grasp Of The Undying‘ showcases the musical talents of rock/metal vocalist Jorn Lande, songstress Noora Louhimo of Battle Beast, producer Scott Kirkland of The Crystal Method, producer and vocalist Danny Lohner formerly of Nine Inch Nails, world-renowned drummer Tommy Lee of Motley Crüe fame, drummer Mike Pitman and vocalist Rich Thomson of Xerath, vocalist Per Johansson of Ureas, and many more.
Jorn Lande, the voice of Karthus, states: “It’s great for a classic heavy rocker like myself to be a part of this modern gaming music world, and I’m excited and grateful for the opportunity to work with such a great team of talented people. This exciting development is not just about creating an original twist to the online gaming industry, but also about pioneering some groundbreaking new metal! My job is to make Karthus the singer he is, and add the classic heavy rock element to his performance. I’m proud that Karthus and his band are back to bring new PENTAKILL metal your way!”
Noora Louhimo, the voice of Kayle, adds: “It’s been so exciting and an honor to be part of the second PENTAKILL record. This has been my dream come true to work in the gaming world. This is just the beginning and I can’t wait to see what the future brings. I hope people love the result as much as I do!”
