History

Pentakill Rises


Pentakill Rises


You have sown. Soon you shall reap.

You have seen the true voice of metal fall quiet, surrounded by the massed harmonies of your weak whispers. But listen closely to those whispers, and you shall find the seed of truth. Five Four voices. Five harbingers of destruction, waiting patiently for their time to rise. And on that chosen day, these five shall change your world forever. Sonic brutality has never ascended such heights before. These voices have already slain the DragonSquare.png Dragon and butchered the Baron NashorSquare.png Baron. They have ravaged the Fields of Justice, burned Runeterra to the ground, and slaughtered millions of TeemoSquare.png Teemos. When they come, their breed of metal shall smite your plebeian souls and punish your frail bodies. You will cower at their visage and tremble at the name... ProfileIcon Pentakill Pentakill.

And ProfileIcon Pentakill Pentakill is coming... for you. Because you have sown, and soon you shall reap.

Pentakill MordekaiserSquare Pentakill Mordekaiser

A prodigal guitarist just minutes after his birth, MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser spent his formative years mastering the art of metal until he was so adept at shredding that his guitars would wither and combust under his furious fretwork. Desperate to find his instrumental equal, Mordekaiser traveled far and wide in search of a legendary guitar known only as "Numero Uno". Both made of metal and made for metal, Numero Uno was known as the indestructible axe, a tool Mordekaiser hoped would withstand his beastly playing. Finally, after years of searching, he found it, buried deep within a Shuriman crypt. But as Mordekaiser grasped the instrument's neck for the first time, it too grasped him, filling him with murderous intent and driving his headbanging instincts harder and heavier than they'd ever been before. Mordekaiser emerged from the crypt a changed man, and as he returned to civilization, his antics took a turn for the violent. One fateful band practice, Numero Uno's power became too much - Mordekaiser turned berserk, murdering his bandmates, including their up-and-coming singer, KarthusSquare.png Karthus.

Pentakill KarthusSquare Pentakill Karthus was not born, but reborn. A promising metal vocalist in life, the demons of the Shadow Isles saw purpose in Karthus, and after his murder at the hands of MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser, imbued him with undeath before steeping his voice in the fury of countless lost souls. Karthus resumed singing, earning himself a fearsome reputation after eating a live poro and gargling gravel during his Shadowstock debut. He set about establishing himself as the Shadow Isles' finest vocalist, but soon grew tired with the lack of local instrumental talent. Remembering MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser's unmatched playing, Karthus sought passage back to Valoran, and enlisted the help of the only musician Karthus felt was his equal: the bass-playing ferryman, YorickSquare.png Yorick.

Pentakill YorickSquare Pentakill Yorick spent his early years on the Shadow Isles torturing ghouls and ghosts with his pounding bass playing. But as the years passed by, the ghouls started to enjoy the head-rattling virtuoso's playing. Eventually they formed Yorick's hardcore fanbase and followed him throughout the Shadow Isles, earning him the nickname "Brown Note" thanks to their muddy coloration. After ferrying KarthusSquare.png Karthus back to Valoran, Yorick decided to join him, create a “******* awesome” band, and unleash their terrifying symphony on the unsuspecting living masses.

After arriving in Valoran and reuniting with MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser, the three headbangers scoured the lands, butchering all within ear's reach with their demonic tunes. But they met their match in SonaSquare.png Sona, who, through years of silence had attuned her hearing to withstand all manner of metal. Impressed with both her resilience and her ability to tear up her keys while covered in blood, the three offered Sona a place in their band, and thus Pentakill SonaSquare Pentakill Sona was born. With her in the band, the group's destruction amped up significantly, and soon only the frozen northlands harbored humanity's last stand. The monolithic colossus of metal that is ProfileIcon Pentakill Pentakill was almost complete...

Continuing their massacre, the demonic quartet finally reached the frozen wastes of the Freljord. Tribe after tribe fell, the Howling Abyss howled for mercy, and villages were set ablaze until the whole world was ready to burn. Looking for a celebratory drink, the four entered Runeterra's last standing bar, and found it empty save for one man. OlafSquare.png Olaf was not in a sober state, and challenged "the biggest of yous *****" to an arm wrestle. YorickSquare.png Yorick stepped up, and the duel began. Legend states that the two were locked in arm-on-arm combat for days, sustaining themselves with whiskey and peanuts. Finally KarthusSquare.png Karthus, bored of the deadlock, offered Olaf a place in the band. "I’m only good at hitting ****", said Olaf. "Perfect", rasped Karthus, "you shall be our drummer".

Pentakill - Lightbringer04:57

Pentakill - Lightbringer

First Verse:

Fellow armsmen, I ask you:
"Will you follow me tonight to break their spine,
and reclaim what once was mine?"
Those cravens, backstabbed me, deceived me.
Never shall I tolerate their crimes again.
Now let the hunt begin. (Yeah!)
Seven thousands souls, scared and daunted, such a tale of woe.
Not too long ago, this village was a golden scene of hope.

Chorus:

Call down the reckoning,
To bring back hope and peace; restore our gloria,
To live forever. (Yeah!)
Bring down the dark regime,
I know how to unleash eternal power,
Lead us to order.
I am the Lightbringer! (Yeah!)
I am the Lightbringer!

Second Verse:

Now listen, fellow warriors, I ask you:
"Should my campaign come to an end?"
There's way more to avenge. (Woah!)
Fifteen million souls, living in this realm without much hope,
Not too long ago, this kingdom was a golden state of hope.
(Yeah! Ah, ah, ah, ah, oh!)

Chorus:

Call down the reckoning,
To bring back hope and peace; restore our gloria,
To live forever. (Yeah!)
Bring down the dark regime,
I know how to unleash eternal power,
Lead us to order.
I am the Lightbringer!

Bridge:

(Woah!) Call down the reckoning,
Bring back hope and peace; restore our gloria,
To live forever.

Chorus:

Call down the reckoning,
To bring back hope and peace; restore our gloria,
To live forever.
Bring down the dark regime,
I know how to unleash eternal power,
Lead us to order.
I am the Lightbringer!
― Lightbringer

in their haunting guise.
Smiting the wicked baron,
and unleash my might.

Chorus:

Come what ever may, I'll be the death of you.
After channeling my power, your end will be swift.
Now there's nothing in my way, you'll feel my deathfire grasp!

Clashing minions,
ravaged fields of war.
Manifest my dominion,
total chaos restored.

Chorus (x2):

When we face our final hour in the darkest rift.

Right before they die.
This melody seeks a new victim,
Let it penetrate their mind.

I will revive one more life to ignite them all,
And their barriers will crumble under all of my force.
They'll fall, let's make them crawl.
And when we finally meet their king,
There will be no ghost for him,
We shall end it all. (Woah, yeah, yeah!)

Right before they die.

Let it penetrate their mind.

And as we speak the army of our enemies
is approaching our gates, we cannot fly.

Behold, my son,
There's a way to save you all,
Don't you despair, don't be petrified.
There is an armor, ancient magic made it strong,

This harness will guide us through dangerous night,
It humbles the foe with its grace.
The thornmail will help us prevail and survive,
Our deadliest fate we embrace. (Woah!)

Third Verse:

Well done, my son, it's the way to save you all,
but don't you think the realm's been purified.
Creatures of darkness are still longing for your fall,
Keep them in thrall, it's time to smite and ignite.

Chorus:

This harness will guide us through dangerous night,
It humbles the foe with its grace.
The thornmail will help us prevail and survive,
Our deadliest fate we embrace.

Bridge:

My king, my king, how was I supposed to know that
everyone will falter when you die.

Our deadliest fate we embrace.

Sona and Mordekaiser storm Zaun with their wildly popular band, Pentakill

Down in the slums of Zaun, where the gutters glow green with techmaturgical runoff, one can find all manner of unsavory characters: the disreputable, the disadvantaged, and the disillusioned. These are the homes of back-alley sorcerers and shimmer addicts, all those whom critics say are the byproducts of Zaun's rapid and reckless research initiatives. Yet, despite (or perhaps, because of) the many negative images associated with the Zaunite slums, thrill seekers frequently venture down to these dark alleys. They come in larger numbers every week, and all come for one reason: the undeniable allure of Zaun's underground techmaturgical music scene.

With instruments powered by techmaturgical amplification, "Techma-Tune" musicians and their strange, wailing sound have been gaining ground in Zaunian taverns for years. Those hip to the scene gather in droves to listen to the stylings of bands such as "The Hexbenders", "Yordle Mothership", or "Tainted Nexus". For the price of a cheap (and questionably concocted) beverage, any traveler can shove for shoulder-room to see these talented groups perform.

Though the Techma-Tune movement has long been an unknown scene outside of Zaun, a new star recently pushed interest in this genre of music beyond Zaun's borders and into the hearts and minds of countless Valorans. For the past few months, MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser, the Master of Metal and champion of the League, has been storming the stages of Zaun with devastating effect as lead guitarist of the band "Pentakill". His dark, pounding rhythms resonate deeply with his followers. One fan says, "His strings speak to the torment of my existence." Another gushes, "I know that deep beneath that armor beats a broken heart like mine. I love you, Mordekaiser!"

We had the privilege of speaking briefly with the League fighter and night rocker:

JP: Mordekaiser, you're an enigma both in and out of the arena. What draws you away from the Field of Justice to pursue this surprising side-project?

M: My fans. I am drawn to their disease.

JP: You mean their feverish love of this Techma-Tune music?

M: No.

Pentakill's popularity exploded recently when Mordekaiser appeared on stage with an unlikely co-star: SonaSquare.png Sona, the League's darling diva! The masterful mistress of strings has been regularly rocking at Mordekaiser's side in true Techma-Tune style, clad in silver chains and black finery. The two have been busy releasing more captivating singles than ever before, with Sona's otherworldly serenades adding a somber and captivating undertone to Mordekaiser's gritty, powerful chords. Though Sona was (understandably) unavailable for comment, Mordekaiser has confirmed his desire to expand the ensemble further into a full band: "I would welcome those who would bring my music further power. We are known as Pentakill, and we shall rock as no other. Join us, if you are so bold."

Hear Pentakill perform their new hit, "Mask of Madness" at Trogsworth's Tavern in the heart of Zaun’s trade district any night this week. Be warned – it's standing room only and the crowd can get a little raucous. Also, if you yourself are a talented techma-musician, gather your courage and approach the stage afterwards for a personal audition!

Journal of Justice's Letter

"Dear Pentakill: As a new summoner, I have been hard at work training, working with several champions who share my style. One such champion, and the frontman for the band Pentakill, is the master of metal himself: MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser. Although he has joined forces with the musically talented Sona to make a band to bring the life-changing music of metal to the League, it confuses me that there are only two members: guitar and keyboards. After giving it some thought, I would like to ask the frontman himself if he has any plans at all for additions to the band and what new heights he has in store for them?"Lemarius [3]

Getting a backstage pass to a Pentakill show is perhaps the next most difficult thing to getting to interview champions after League matches. Nonetheless, I fought through legions of spiky, thrashing Pentakill enthusiasts to get you Mordekaiser's response.

"Pentakill is recruiting. We get lots of applications. One new member is coming soon. You will all suffer his brutal wrath."

Drunk Karthus

Pentakillers!

I’m afraid we've got some bad news. Our lawyers just informed us that KarthusSquare.png Karthus has received a drunken disorderly following our last 18 concerts, which is news to us because we just found out that's an actual crime. Unfortunately, this Demacian judge is a real hardass, and the only plea deal he's offering requires us to assign Karthus a "sober companion" to keep him from relapsing. We tried to explain that anybody who gets between Karthus and the keg usually winds up dead, but he keeps insisting. Besides, sending Karthus to jail would mean canceling the tour, and we're already in the hole since Olaf burned down that hotel in Piltover because the concierge insulted his hat.

I guess we’ll have to interview some candidates. But first pass me that bottle of Jarvan Walker. I haven’t had breakfast yet, and there’s no way I can make a decision like this on an empty stomach.

KarthusSquare.png Karthus: I can't believe you $#*ing guys are going make me quit drinking. I mean, what would I do without booze, huh? You can't really expect me to do this sober!

MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser: Karthus, you really have to see how you've contributed here. It isn't our fault you can't hold your liquor – you haven't got a stomach. Besides, you were going strong until you took those six hits off Sona's Oracle's Elixir item.png Oracle's Elixir. I could understand if you were the support, but that's just irresponsible. Tell him, Sona.

SonaSquare.png Sona: …

KarthusSquare.png Karthus: Hey @#$& you, you ^$*ing #$*@s! I !$#^ing carry this %&^*ing band! Who the *&%$ing @!#$ do you &%#$s think you are making me get clean? @#%^ing %^&# this $%#@, I'm going to @%^$ing kill whoever you @#^$ing hire and then drink vast quantities of mead. @#%#!

OlafSquare.png Olaf: Well, I don't think anybody's going to top that. Um… our new record, Death Rides a Pale Boar is in stores now. And don't steal it because, you know… we'll kill you.
