Powerhouse Norwegian singer Jorn Lande (MASTERPLAN, ARK) has contributed lead vocals to the song "Lightbringer", which is featured in League Of Legends, a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games.
Comments Lande: "I have been working closely with music producer Christian Linke of Riot Games in L.A., on a project called PENTAKILL, which is basically a heavy rock band within the League Of Legends concept.
"PENTAKILL is the Valoran continents' most famous (and possibly only) rock band. Its members consist of champions from the game.
"It's very exciting to be a part of this new development in the gaming industry and a fabulous opportunity to be able to reach out to millions of people worldwide in just a blink of an eye.
"It has been a great experience working with the productive and dedicated people of Riot Games, and I am truly proud to be a part of this!"
"Lightbringer" can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
Riot describes PENTAKILL as a "passion project created by a number of musicians within Riot as well as some professional rockers."
PENTAKILL's full album, "Smite And Ignite", will be available for free download on June 3 via the PENTAKILLweb site.
