Riot Games announced that the next international League of Legends event will once again feature metal, instead of K-Pop, which was more popular in recent years.
Pentakill, the fictional metal band in League of Legends, had an amazing album called Smite and Ignite in 2015 but the follow-up from 2017, Grasp of the Undying, did not quite reach the same heights. That said, the fans still liked but K-Pop took over in later years and Pentakill didn't bring out another set of songs for four years.
That stretch is about to end in May, 2021, as Riot Games announced that Pentakill will be performing at the event. The actual return will happen before that, however, as Pentakill will take stage on April 11, 2021, at The Greek.
This will only be a taste of things to come as the band will offer a sneak peek of their upcoming track that will be featured at MSI opening ceremonies. It seems to be a result of Riot's partnerships with Mastercard and Jackson, the latter of which is all about making guitars worthy of being called shred machines.
These guys made instruments for some of the biggest names in the scene, including Megadeth, Iron Maiden and Slipknot.
As for Pentakill itself, Jorn Lande will once again lend his legendary voice to Karthus so you know we're in for a treat.
