Listen to some League of Legends-inspired metal

First single from Pentakill's upcoming album now available ahead of full release on June 3.


League of Legends

It's not just Wolfenstein: The New Order that features metal music. Riot Games has announced that the first single from the upcoming League of Legends-inspired metal album Smite and Ignite from the band Pentakill is now available.

The song is "Lightbringer" and the production values are high--there's double bass, screaming guitar lines, and a surprisingly catchy chorus. The music video has already gathered well over 1 million views just a day after being posted.

Pentakill is a passion project from musicians at Riot Games and outside of the developer. The entire 8-song album will be available as a free download on June 3 through Pentakill's website. You'll also be able to buy the album through various digital music retailers if you want.

In League of Legends, the massively popular free-to-play PC game, a pentakill is a term for killing five enemies in rapid succession.
