In real life though, the man behind Karthus (the vocalist for League of Legends ” virtual band Pentakill ) is Jørn Lande, the famed Norwegian rocker who also works with Avantasia and his own band, Jorn.

Behind the scenes, the songs on Smite & Ignite were created by a rotating cast of professional metal musicians, including Jørn Lande (Jorn, Beyond Twilight, Masterplan) and ZP Theart (Skid Row, Dragonforce), as well as by the music composition and production team at League of Legends' parent company, Riot Games.

JL: I'm a terrible League of Legends” player, but back in the day I was pretty good at Space Invaders,” Ms. Pacman,” Donkey Kong Jr.” and Street Fighter.” Then around 20 years later I joined my kids playing the great Super Mario” and other various Nintendo and PlayStation games.

JL: Pentakill is still so fresh and new that it doesn't seem right to start playing songs from the two albums, especially since there hasn't been any Pentakill tour yet or individual shows to establish the band as a live act in the global high elo music scene.

If you weren't around to catch the first album in 2014, you've definitely seen the inspirations for the music somewhere in the game. Headed by musician Jørn Lande, Pentakill has released a single, Lightbringer (2014), and a full-lengthed album, Smite and Ignite (2014).

While not officially done by Riot Games, YouTube weapon creators Man At Arms: Reforged created the Nameless Blade — the signature weapon of Yasuo in the game.
