Lord Of The Rings' Christopher Lee Goes Metal Again

(Classic Rock) 90-year-old Lord Of The Rings star Christopher Lee will be releasing his second heavy metal album Charlemagne: The Omens Of Death on May 27.

Lee, who's better known for his association with another Hammer, the cult horror movie firm, says the new record is more metal than the previous one.

He explains: "The first Charlemagne album is metal, of course, but what I sang was more symphonic. The Omens Of Death is one hundred percent heavy metal. I've done my bits and pieces, and they are heavy metal. I'm not screaming or anything like that, but it is definitely heavy metal."

The music was arranged by Richie Faulkner just before he replaced KK Downing in Judas Priest. "Most of the songs were already there," says the guitarist. "But they needed riffs, drum parts and musical parts that reflected what the guys wanted which was a metal record with an aim to be played live by a band." More including a preview video.
