Christopher Lee Reveals Plans to Releases Second Metal Album-

Horror icon Christoper Lee has announced that he planning torelease a second Metal album under the guise of Charlemagne,reports MetalTalk

Lee, who turned 90 last month, is most famous for his roles asDracula in the Hammer Horror film series as well as Saruman theWhite in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

However Lee recently told the BBC that he had become 'fascinated'by the metal genre:

"I became rather fascinated by this (genre) because, in terms ofhistory of music, it's fairly recent, really. And if it's properlydone and you can understand the story and you can understand whatthe people are singing and you have the right bands and the rightsingers, I think it's rather exciting.

"When I was approached to do the first Charlemagne album, By TheSword And The Cross, it is heavy metal, of course, but what I sangwas more symphonic. Now, on the second one, The Omens Of Death, itis 100 per cent heavy metal. I've done my bits and pieces, and theyare heavy metal. I'm not screaming or anything like that, but it isdefinitely 100 per cent heavy metal."

The first single from the second album, entitled 'The Omens ofDeath,' was released digitally and on limited edition vinyl lastmonth (May12). Lee revealed that this second album will see himmove into 'full on' Heavy Metal, with music arranged by JudasPriest guitarist Richie Faulkner.
