The “conquerors of a land of myth and metal” are back. League of Legends original in-game band, metal group Pentakill, are making their big return in Season 11 ⁠— with a new member joining the ensemble. Here’s what you need to know.

Not only that, but the six-member band (with Kayle joining the ranks in 2017) has expanded to seven, with the Ruined King himself Viego shredding on the guitar.

As we just mentioned, Viego is now a part of Pentakill ⁠— making them more a heptakill, given there’s now seven members. The Ruined King is known as the Dissonance of Pentakill in the band’s ranks, shredding his blade like a guitar.

It comes after the teasers leading up to Lost Chapter’s reveal hinted at Viego becoming a part of the metal band.

However, what part he’ll play in their upcoming album remains to be seen, but some grungy song about his wife Isolde is almost certainly on the tracklist.

Pentakill is also getting a fresh lick of paint in-game. The League of Legends skins are rather outdated from their 2014 selves, outside of Kayle’s 2017 refresh. However, in 2021, all members are getting a new in-game skin for Lost Chapter.

Featuring all-new animations, visuals, and even effects, the original five members ⁠— Karthus, Mordekaiser, Olaf, Sona, and Yorick ⁠— as well as Kayle will be getting new Lost Chapter themed skins.
