Pentakill, the League of Legends inspired rock group, has come out with a few new singles which can only mean one thing. 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), or you can grab it from the store for 250 RP or 1500 IP.

A heavy metal band from the massively popular online video game League of Legends, Pentakill operates somewhere between the opulent, fantasy-driven power metal of Dragonforce and the cleverly constructed inside metal stylings of Dethklok. Gamepedia's League of Legends Esports wiki covers tournaments, teams, players, and personalities in League of Legends.
While the release date hasn't been officially announced yet, hopefully, this new album will inspire a second round of Pentakill skins for the in-game characters that are considered part of the band. Riot Games has teased a new Kayle skin for League of Legends, and it rocks.
Although the bulk of the work was done by Riot Games' in-house composers and sound designers, the album also features collaborations with some of metal's most respected musicians - there are cameos from the likes of Tommy Lee , Nine Inch Nails alumnus Danny Lohner and Noora Louhimo, singer with the Finnish metal band Battle Beast.
Three years after the release of Smite & Ignite, Pentakill II: Grasp Of The Undying is a full length, 10-track record showcasing the multi-faceted talents of the music professionals and avid production team involved, and featuring genre-influences ranging from power metal, NWOBHM, thrash, modern progressive death metal, and even industrial.
Having become a Billboard hit with their 2014 debut 8 track EP ‘Smite And Ignite' , featuring such modern metal classics as ‘Ohmwrecker' and ‘The Hex Core', Pentakill are set to release their first full album ‘Pentakill II: Grasp Of The Undying'. Karthus picked up his microphone, dressed in a decent suit and now he looks like a real metal band singer.
Even more surprising, the group turned out to be a virtual band made up of fictional members — vocalist Karthus, guitarist Mordekaiser, bassist Yorick, keyboardist Sona and drummer league of legends Olaf — embodied by an original skin line in the massively popular online game League of Legends.
You can buy Pentakill Yorick skin for 975 RP in the League of Legends in-game store. Each of them have unique skins that fit into this heavy metal rock band theme. Pentakill Karthus catches the eye and new sound voice lines only add uniqueness to this skin. The real life Pentakill band, hoewver, is cormpised of a number of musicians within Riot, as well as some professional rockers.
And to crank it up a notch, Mordekaiser, Sona, Karthus, Olaf, and Yorick are taking the stage with new splash art, in-game models, and an all new summoner icon. A green smoke suddenly formed and popped Karthus, the lead singer of the rock band.
