For those who don't know, the band known as "Pentakill" from the League of Legends game has released their first single. And holy macaroni it's pretty good. The lead singer is the voice actor for the character Karthus. Take a listen.

Sounds pretty nice! The vocalist is a wonderful singer. I also really liked the guitar solo and the ambient choir in the background. My only issue with it was that the riffs in the first verse were horribly mallcore.

Hey man, that's great. Really. *tips fedora*



In any case, I thought this would be interesting for others to take a listen, it's actually quite good.

There are like two other songs released so far (they have a full album for free download coming June 3rd). It sounds like a mix of Power Metal and Nu-Metal. Nothing to write home about besides getting some metal guests like that former Dragonforce singer ect.

So you're a DOTA2 fan, eh?

This kinda reminds me of Sabaton.

Even the guitar tone sounds weak and video gamey. Like its distortion pedal was just an effect downloaded into GarageBand. I'm leaning towards Dream Evil with its nonsensical lyrics. Jorn once again proves its possible to invalidate great talent by consistently participating in terrible projects. This guy has a 'name' but absolutely no classic albums to back it up.

It's actually not bad at all. Kinda catchy. I'm a sucker for Jorn's voice. I don't know where people are getting the Dream Evil comparison.

Exigence makes complete sense for once. Guess it was a matter of time.

Nope.
I discovered this when it came out because I play League a decent amount. I like Lightbringer quite a bit (the riffs aren't the best thing ever but the chorus is super catchy in a power metal song? HOLY SHIT.) Ohmwrecker, on the other hand, sounds like a bad Keith Merrow rip-off, and Deathfire Grasp merely exists.

Wow, really surprised MA of all places would like this so much. The leads are alright, but those riffs sound like they came from the reject pile of Zakk Wylde's Ozzy era.

MA likes it so much? Half the posts are saying how shitty it is, the other half is saying it's "decent". :lol:

Eh, I enjoyed the chorus a lot. Sure the instrumentals aren't on par, but come on, it's from an online game.

It´s a lot more polished than Level 90 Tauren Chieftains. Still, this is in no way a classic like ´I Am Murloc´.

Funny though that afaik the two only official bands for a game both play heavy/power metal.
