Movie veteran Christopher Lee is set to take on the realm of music!
After doing “Dracula”, “Lord Of The Rings” and “Star Wars”, Lee is turning to metal music. Nice.
He has already provided the vocals on a symphonic metal concept album which is said to recount the life of the first Roman Emperor King Charlemagne, from whom he’s a direct descendant.
He said, “It’s fascinating for me that, at this stage in my life, people are beginning to look upon me as a metal singer. When this comes out as a complete album, it’s going to be sensational. There’s a lot of characters in this particular album…There’s Charlemagne himself, of course, which I sing, and then there’s young Charlemagne, Charlemagne’s father, Charlemagne’s brother….the Pope.”
The album, titled, “Charlemagne: By The Sword And The Cross” is due out for release on March 15, 2010.
