Christopher Lee Releases Metal Christmas Single

Posted 16 Dec 2013 in Miscellaneous, Music, News

Now, upon first reading of that headline, we admit it sounds a bit ridiculous. Surely we couldn’t mean that Christopher Lee. After all, the man played Sauraman in Lord of the Rings, Dracula in so many renditions of the series, and Count Dooku in the Star Wars series. He’s like 91 years old, for goodness sake. There’s no way he could be releasing metal music at that…

Christopher Lee

…oh? What’s that? This is the very same Christopher Lee? What a prolific man. As it turns out, the legendary actor Christopher Lee did in fact release a heavy metal cover of the classic carol “Jingle Bells”, as well as a cover of a Frank Sinatra tune by the name of “My Way”. This actually isn’t the first time Lee has unleashed his metal side upon the world; on his 91st birthday he released an album titled Charlemagne: The Omens of Death. Besides being decent metal, the album also garnered attention as Lee broke records for oldest metal performer of all time. Let it be known, readers, that this man does not seem to be slowing down any time soon.
