Any of you play, League of Legends (LoL)? Well, if you do you might have noticed the ‘Pentakill’ skins on 5 champions, and each of these champions appear as one to make the league’s only metal band, Pentakill! For those of you haven’t played this game, it’s a quite famous battle arena type game like Defense of The Ancients. The album was a long awaited treat for most LoL players, finally it released this year (2014) and the band sounds as promising as most of the fans expected it to be.
Starting with ‘Light Bringer’, the album kicks off with a fast paced solo and plenty of sweep picking, but it’s the second track ‘Death Fire Grasp’ where the actual power of the band kicks in and truly shines. ‘Death Fire Grasp’ is a song packed with hair raising melodies, sick vocals and a high speed guitar solo. The song revolves heavily around the gameplay and the legendary item called “deathfire grasp”(as the track name states). This song all in all is the best thing about the album, as it truly provides the adrenaline spike to dominate a match in LoL.
The instrumentals by this band are also highly impressive, especially when the keyboard solos and guitar solos simply captivate you in their melodious assaults. In short most of this music is great for a boost while playing the game itself as it was intended to be used for those very reasons.
Overall the album is quite sweet to the ears of any power metal fan or fan of the game. Since it’s a free download for now, I recommend giving it a try. It’s quite worth a listen, from the instrumentals to the jaw dropping vocals and solos!
