No one shreds like the undead
04-Aug-2017
We asked Pentakill how much to charge for the record but the only number they gave us was the beast's.

The infernal prophecy of Pentakill: born of shadow, forged in flame, metal as hell.

Their last performance ended the band - and the lives of the audience. But Pentakill didn't stay dead for long and, now, no stage can escape the grasp of the undying.

Aftermath

When the sky in the far north of the Freljord profileicon Freljord grows dark and warriors gather around the hearthfire embers, they sometimes speak of a deathly night on the ice, of murderous rage unbound. It is a tale only spoken of in hushed, awed whispers. Some claim it is no more than a legend invented to frighten youngsters, others claim that even to speak of it is to invite the return of those metal Mordekaiser OriginalSquareKarthus OriginalSquareYorick OriginalSquareSona OriginalSquareOlaf OriginalSquare warriors from their tour of the realms beyond. None lived to tell of this grim night but, sometimes, a reckless taleteller speaks of a berserk axeman reaping lives with his axe. They whisper that not even his brothers could restrain his fury. Only by bringing a mountain down upon the metal giant was his rampage halted.

Thus did Pentakill profileicon Pentakill's last live performance end.


South of Heaven

Accounts of Kayle OriginalSquare Kayle's arrival in World Rune profileicon Runeterra variously speak of her borne by a fiery comet that split the sky or straddling the girth of a glittering, serpentine Aurelion Sol OriginalSquare dragon. These are just two of the legends of how Kayle came to walk among mortals. Gleaming in jagged warplate, she was a golden warrior goddess from a strife-torn Mount Targon profileicon world in search of allies to fight an epic war against the diabolical hordes of her faithless Morgana OriginalSquare sister. Planet Earth had failed to produced warriors of mettle, so she travelled to Runeterra in search of warriors of metal.

So rarefied was Kayle PentakillCircle Kayle's divine speech that she could only communicate via grand, symphonic metal Pentakill Kayle profileicon operas that told of her plight. The depthless sorrow of these operatic arias pierced the hearts of all who heard them and her listeners were frequently overcome with such overwhelming melancholy that they simply dropped dead at the end of her performance. But since each song was typically many hours long, they had time enough to put their affairs in order before death took them. Yet, for all the heart-rending emotion contained in her lyrics, none of her audiences could truly understand the depths of her woes, no one could hear the sorrow of her existence without immediately perishing.

No one except Karthus.


Beneath the Remains

After the disastrous end to their last live performance, where Mordekaiser destroyed the entirety of the Freljordian crowd, Karthus PentakillCircle Karthus gave the fateful order for Olaf to drum the 'Worldsplitter Rhythm' that sundered the land and brought down the icy realm's highest peak upon Mordekaiser. As the rock of the mountain cascaded down, the band fled to the far corners of Runeterra to escape the wrath of Freljordian battle queens and the raft of inevitable blood feuds.

Karthus pitched up in Serpent Crest profileicon Bilgewater, earning a crust as a hooded reciter of funeral Pentakill Karthus profileicon dirges. This had an unexpected health benefit to natives of Bilgewater, as people started looking after themselves rather than have to put their families through such an ordeal. So Karthus toured the most squalid and fetid dive bars to sing at the drunken wakes of murdered pirates, instead - what with grim dirges being a vast improvement on sea-shanties. A slow descent into madness and obscurity beckoned until the radiant form of Kayle arrived in Bilgewater.

She heard the depthless well of misery in his despairing lyrics and knew Karthus alone could understand her own sorrow. What followed was a drunken woe-off, a night of debauchery, gothic poetry, and operatic singing that saw the men and women of the Slaughter Docks hurl themselves into the monster-filled ocean rather than listen to their maudlin duets. In the aftermath, Karthus and Kayle pledged the Vocalist's Oath to return stronger than ever. After all, shared woe is better than solitary woe.

It would be the comeback tour to end all comeback tours.


Among the Living

The hooded and hunched figure of Yorick PentakillCircle Yorick headed south from the bloody carnage of the Freljord and did not stop until he reached the sun-bleached wastes of Shurima profileicon Shurima. Sunlight was something new to Yorick, something he avoided for fear of people recoiling from a face not even a mother could love. He helped excavate the tombs of long-dead emperors, which allowed him to spend a great deal of his time in the darkness underground - something his fellow diggers certainly appreciated.

His unique Pentakill Yorick profileicon bass was the perfect tool to crush the soft rock of Shurima but often had the side effect of liquefying the sand to a degree where many of the workers excavating the tombs were buried alive. To many of these buried souls, this was preferable to enduring another moment of conversation with a man who could literally bore rock. After being forcibly ejected from dig sites all across Shurima and months spent deep underground with long-dead princes, Yorick decided that he too desired to be buried in the sands.

He dug deep into the bedrock to craft his own shadowed mausoleum and, there, he interred himself within a lightless tomb, intending to pass the eons in splendid isolation. And so, Yorick slept beneath the desert until Karthus and Kayle pried open his tomb. The two singers did nothing to disabuse Yorick of the idea that eons had passed and that all who desired him dead were, themselves, now dead.

The mortal realm was, they told him, once again ready for Pentakill II profileicon Pentakill.


Let There be Rock

The entombment of Mordekaiser beneath the mountain of Freljord had inspired Sona PentakillCircle Sona and, while the other members of the band split to the far corners of World Rune profileicon Runeterra in despair, she was consumed with the desire to craft soaring, symphonic rock operas. She toured the grandest temples of the world (and beyond) but none of the acoustics were powerful enough to satisfy Sona's need for the most cosmically resonant sounds. The great glacier temples of the Freljord were now denied her so Sona took ship with the doomed crew of the Serpent's Feast to a series of volcanic islands in uncharted waters east of Bilgewater.

The dread crew swiftly departed as Sona set up her Pentakill Sona profileicon keyboards and began to sculpt the island with sonic brutality. She played the very notes of creation and dragged volcanic islands from the depths as they rained lava to form titanic organ pipes to further magnify Sona's playing. So powerful were her notes that they travelled between worlds and sank entire continents (a planned gig in Atlantis had to be cancelled). Encircled by mighty volcanoes, Sona set the sky ablaze with hellfire dragged from the heart of the planet. Yet, as awesome as it was, her playing needed more. It needed the demonic wailing of unearthly guitars and the quaking thunder of drums and bass.

And that's when the burning ferry bearing Karthus, Yorick, and Kayle ran aground on Sona's basalt ring of fire.


Destroyer

Though it went against every instinct he possessed, Olaf PentakillCircle Olaf did not stay and die under the mountain with Mordekaiser. With Yorick heading south, Olaf's favorite drinking partner was gone. So, to mourn his survival of what he always believed was to be his final performance, he sought to drink himself to death with the deadliest booze of Runeterra. He found a fellow named Gragas OriginalSquare Gragas and ended up in the depths of Zaun profileicon Zaun with him, drinking potent sump cocktails, bragging of his glory days, and daring chem-jacked thugs to take him on.

He readily found ways in which to ply his trade as a professional hitter of things and soon found himself embroiled in underground golem fight-clubs. Up against chem-powered golems, Olaf found his natural talent for pounding drums was also good for pounding mechanical giants to pieces. He sought out the most dangerous opponents in fight after fight, eventually falling under the metal hammer of Drago, one of Viktor OriginalSquare Viktor's most lethal creations. Just as his foe was about to deliver the deathblow, a piercing wail shattered the crystalline globe containing the golem's transplanted brain. Bellowing in rage at this denial of death, Olaf surged to his feet, ready to pound again. He found himself face to skull with his old lead singer.

Olaf would live. And he would Pentakill Olaf profileicon drum again.


Rust in Peace

When the mountain fell on Mordekaiser PentakillCircle Mordekaiser, he took it as a sign from the Gods of Metal that his demonically-ordained task to bring metal to the masses was done, that he had achieved full Metal. His power chords had so shredded the very fabric of the world that the universe smote him with a mountain. A fitting end to the high priest of metal.

But Mordekaiser knew he would be reborn, rising from the molten ruins of the fallen peak as the once and future king of metal. But as time passed, his wait became a slumber. The crushing mountain was shunned by those who lived in its dark shadow, an evil peak of black metal and cursed rock. Upon its highest summit, the gleaming, obsidian haft of a snarling axe protruded from the rock. Legends grew around this cursed place, legends telling that whosoever drew the axe from the mountain would be the one to reunite the heralds of a new age of metal.

When the mountain finally shuddered and fell, a brazen god of rock was revealed. As Mordekaiser rose to meet the giant who had drawn the axe from the rock, he saw his old bandmates accompanied by a fiery, hellion-valkyrie from beyond. Karthus held out his Pentakill Mordekaiser profileicon axe, its razor strings shivering with anticipation.

"The band's back together", said the Deathsinger.

Cut down one by one,
no sound remains.
Don't fear if death finds you
this day.

Are you with me?
Let us savor the pain.
Do you hear the distant sound
calling your name?

In time, all of us are forgotten:
the ones that don't belong to the pages of history.
But, as my forefathers,
I take to the open sea.

And, as long before,
we'll follow and don't ask more.
Passed down long before:
the stories of old.

This time, I will not be forgotten,
I won't be towed along with the feeble and the enemy.
But, as our forefathers,
I take to the open seas.

And, as long before,
I follow and don't ask more.
Passed down long before:
the stories of old...

and won't be called upon.

Blinded by hate brought by the fall
as I swear death to all:
you will feel my vengeance as I claim your mortal soul.

I will punish and destroy
those responsible for this ploy:
I will seek a thousand deaths,
I will bring a thousand years of war.

All that I had, taken away.
My home is gone and my loved ones, slain.
For every sleep claims a piece of me,
every waking moment, every single dream.

As the masses came like a shadow through this land,
they laid siege to all we ever had.
I stood strong, I was honor-bound;
I stand defiant, I stand ever proud;

I am the chosen:
I am the guardian... the guardian.

Now, I seek the blood of those
who claimed the innocent:
I will hunt the enemy to the last.

I'll banish and rejoice.
The final breath of foes:
you will see what you have made,
you will see what I have finally become.

All that I had, laid to the waste.
My spirit broken and these memories remain.
For every day claims a piece of me,
Every waking hour claims my inner peace... my inner peace.

As the masses came like a shadow through this land,
they laid siege to all we ever had.
I stood strong, I was honor bound;
I stand defiant, I stand ever proud;

I am the chosen:
I am the guardian... the guardian.

The unknown Void profileicon terror that stood alone
passed, from the days of the Shurima profileicon early suns,
through worlds of lost belief,
laid waste, and buried deep;
summoned to be set up to fall
but there's no fear that lives inside this soul.

Inside this World Rune profileicon world,
there is no way back to forgiving Mount Targon profileicon us.
Undone: Kayle OriginalSquare deliverer,
the Morgana OriginalSquare sinful, and the saviors of the innocent.

And so, keepers of old:
keep us from cold,
let us fight once more
till our honor is restored.

The unknown terror that lives below
breaths the flames from the dying suns
and lives to wake the dying ones... the dying ones...
(the dying ones)

Inside this world,
there is no way back to forgiving us.
Undone: deliverer,
the sinful, and the saviors of the innocent.

And so, keepers of old:

Beyond the Shurima profileicon lands of lost dreams,
I hear the call of riches:
word of waters blessed unnatural,
granting power of gods to men.

Under the desert sun is my calling:
I walk the lands that Kindred OriginalSquare death cannot conquer
and, through the unforgiving worlds, the battle lays in wait,
seeking the way
that leads me to the Critical strike damage icon power of the Infinity Edge item Edge...
the Edge.

I'm living and dying a thousand lives
and it's taken its toll on me this time:
the Edge cares not, so why should I?
Because I breath the air of immortals
and I'll be the true invincible:
the Edge is my destiny.

So far from home, I'm reeling:
I've seen the fall of friends.
The end of the road, approaching:
I will have my victory.

I will not cease to be,
you will not ever stop me.
I won't give up the dream,
you cannot ever stop me.

Seeking the way that leads me to the power of the Edge.

I'm living and dying a thousand lives
and it's taken its toll on me this time:
the Edge cares not, so why should I?
Because I breath the air of immortals
and I'll be the true invincible:
the Edge is my destiny.

Is there a reason, in this life, we call our own?
So many misguided visions and trusting deceit.
And, in our shallow pursuit of truth, we lost ourselves.

May the storms gather,
may the cinders roam,
those that will die will still remember.

Blade of the Ruined King item You drank deep and you paid the price
(what did you think you would find?)
Answer the dark whisper
and you will tear this World Rune profileicon world apart...

our world apart.

When the walls came down, we were left abandoned here.
There's no soul inside us: we're all just flesh and bone
to wander the Shadow Isles profileicon dead lands forever.

Will we ever get the chance?

Will we ever get the chance to show them?
So many forgotten and we live on
in the city that once was timeless.

You drank deep and you paid the price
(what did you think you would find?)
Answer the dark whisper
and you will tear this world apart...

our world apart...

Cast down the weak,

those who would let us burn.
Liars and cheats, brittle and weak:

another day will come.

Crawling on your knees right to the end,
I let you pretend you had your last days.
Calling for me to disappear,
I cannot be so easily sent forth.

As you descended on them,
you carry their memories of endless pain.
As remnants to their end,
one after one, you sever them... sever them... sever.

Sever... sever your demons deep within:
a shadow that's been long instilled.

Cast down the weak,
those who deceived us,
those who would let us burn.
Liars and cheats, brittle and weak:

another day will come.

Torment so easily dispensed,
you tried to break our will but you failed.
Calling the serpentine flame
until we were just dust and remains.

As you descended on them,
you carry their memories of endless pain.
As remnants to their end,

Cast down the weak,

A forgotten place inside the lonely Noxus profileicon tower:
tear it down with a metal roar.
The war eternal, Mordekaiser OriginalSquare I assail the unassailable:
a second release unhaunted by my past.

Beneath the marshlands, calling forth the night.
Buried deep, a weapon forged in fire.
Fathers and sons: their kin laid to waste.
(an evil is renewed)

Light up
the night with flames and cinder,
for I am renewed.
(down in flames, feel the kick, and watch them burn)

Light up!
Caught in the crossfire,
overwhelming firepower.
(now, return to hell... in a firestorm)

Out with the old, in with the new world order.
Die or obey, the choice is yours.
Undetected, into the spider's web:
taken apart, slowly, piece by piece.

Find a shadow to hide me and I wait.
Tricksters and spellweavers, beware:
with this flame, I culled the weak, made my nation strong again.
Well, now, they're all dead and gone... dead and gone.

With this blade,
I cull the weak,
make my nation
strong again.

Beneath the marshlands, calling forth the night.
Buried deep, a weapon forged in fire.
Fathers and sons: their kin laid to waste.

Light up
the night with flames and cinder,

This week is for headbanging.

What is the common language in World Rune profileicon Runeterra?
Mordekaiser PentakillCircle Power chords are understood in every language.
If Graves OriginalSquare Graves can have his cigar, can Karthus have his face back? Why is Karthus not a skeleton?
Karthus PentakillCircle Oh, look, another amateur necromancer uneducated in the difference between a lich and a skeleton. Look upon my glorious undeath - tell me, do you see a bag of rattling bones? Or a Deathsinger cloaked in necrotic sorcery?

No autograph for you.

Why is there a Sion LumberjackCircle Lumberjack Sion Set piece skin but no Lumberjack Olaf? Because there are now two trees (Maokai OriginalSquare Maokai, Ivern OriginalSquare Ivern). I mean, it's only fair.
Olaf PentakillCircle There already is a Lumberjack Olaf skin. it's called Pentakill Olaf because I crush trees and rocks and drums and skulls. I don't discriminate.
There are Champion icon champs like Twitch OriginalSquare Twitch and Sona, who don't require much skill. And then there are champs like Azir OriginalSquare Azir and Ryze OriginalSquare Ryze, who are practically impossible to play. What do you plan to do to bridge the imbalance gap between these champs?

I am trained in etwahl warfare and I'm the top Support icon support in the entire League of Legends. You are nothing to me but just another assist. 」
Will we ever get a more dark and scary themed champion? Like a demon/reaper/ghost one who strikes a bit more fear into Summoner Worlds icon summoners? Cause the scariest one now is Yorick OriginalSquare Yorick and he is, well, not so much - but could be fun with a more dark approach.
Karthus PentakillCircle Really? Yorick PentakillCircle Yorick is more terrifying than my songs of eternal despair and death? That thick-skulled bass player couldn't scare a shiver out of a wet cat.
Do you plan to show Karthus some love and give him an update or two to make him fit into the current meta better?
Karthus PentakillCircle I'm sorry, is there a meta where a Pentakill II profileicon Pentakill doesn't fit? We're a metal band but that doesn't mean you should ask us Season 2019 - Bronze 4 bronze questions. This interview is over.
