A New Pentakill Album Is Coming Out In September!
If you’re a fan of Riot’s fictional metal band Pentakill (and, let’s be real, who isn’t?), then you’ll be elated to know that a brand-new single/album is scheduled to drop on September 8! Needless to say, this was a long time coming! The third Pentakill album has been in the pipeline for years, but we didn’t have anything concrete to sink our teeth into — until now.
Who is Pentakill?
At long last, there’s a date we can all look forward to! Riot’s Pentakill albums are critically acclaimed and, well, there’s a good reason why — they’re unique in every sense of the word! They’re a labor of love, if you will, and you can sense it from the very first note! Moreover, one can consider them as an attempt to deepen the lore itself, and to imbue a handful of champions with a bit more pizzazz. Karthus, Mordekaiser, Olaf, Sona, Yorick, and Kayle had all received Pentakill skins over the years, and it’s safe to assume that a slew of other champions will get the nod this time around as well.
Heck, it’s all but guaranteed at this point!
It’s All About Worldbuilding
Riot’s Pentakill albums are so darn spectacular precisely because they extend the world of LoL (in a wholly unique and unexpected way), and create a bespoke soundscape for the players to immerse themselves in. Now, in all fairness, metal isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but the albums themselves are fairly varied in that regard. In other words, even if you’re not a fan of the genre itself, there’s still more than enough depth and musical complexity for everyone to find something they like.
Pentakill might not be as popular as, say, K/DA, but it still has a dedicated, fervent fan base — and they’re much louder and more passionate than you’d ever expect!
