So in League of Legends, there's a group of skins for some of the characters called Pentakill, that is supposed to be the most successful and only metal band in the universe of the game. The champion that is the "lead singer" of the group, Karthus, is getting a rework, and part of that was updating his Pentakill skin, with new quotes for the Pentakill skin done by Jorn Lande. Check out the first two minutes of this to hear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Fv0d7fiNj0 Then a couple nights ago, Riot posted this song on their Youtube page. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUiOylPbfV0 It was confirmed by Praeco, the music director and head composer for Riot, that the vocals were indeed done by Jorn Lande, of Masterplan, Avantasia, Ark, and many others. They also put up a website for the band and announced that a full album would be released on June 3rd, with Praeco and the German Community Manager both confirming that the album would be released free digitally, as well as on services like Spotify, and that a physical copy would be coming out soon™. A track list was later found on a Canadian site for preorder, but it was later taken down. Lightbringer (Lightbringer) 4:56 Deathfire Grasp 4:00 Ohmwrecker 5:18 Last Whisper 3:37 The Hex Core 4:33 The Prophecy 0:47 Thornmail 3:43 Orb of Winter 3:31 All of the songs are named after items in the game, save for the Prophecy, the preview of which made it seem to be just a spoken word intro. Then, today, another track was released https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=be1waE9myCU This one was confirmed to have vocals from ZP Theart, formerly of Dragonforce. It is also believed by many people that the track Last Whisper also has vocals from Theart. When the other video was uploaded, Riot Germany uploaded the incorrect track, Ohmwrecker, it was swiftly taken down, but people had already snatched up the track, so Riot ended up releasing it officially anyway. This one is fairly different than the other two, being an instrument track that is rather djenty. It was confirmed on Reddit that the keyboard/synth on this track was done by Derek Sherinian. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcihD7tyPvM&feature=youtu.be It's also believed that M. Shadows from Avenged Sevenfold is on other tracks on the album, at least from the previews that had been up. I think this is pretty interesting, it's legitimate metal, not just something cheesy and full of league puns. Apparently some people wanted that, but I rather like this, it doesn't feel like they're making forced references and this music could probably stand on its own without the boost that Riot gives it. I'm really excited for the album, it being League related is kind of inconsequential, the music is pretty damn good! EDIT - It's been a while since I was last here, can you not embed Youtube videos anymore?
