Today Is Christopher Lee’s Birthday! Wish Him A Happy One And Pick Up His New Metal Album

christopherleebanner

Today is the birthday of one of the greatest horror icons in the history of our beloved genre: Christopher Lee. This is the man who played Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Mummy, Rasputin, Lord Summerisle, etc…, and that’s not even scratching the surface of this historic actor’s filmography.

Now, what better way to celebrate the birthday of this amazing actor than by snagging his new album, Charlemagne: The Omens Of Death, which came out today?

Lee states, “The first ‘Charlemagne’ album is metal, of course, but what I sang was more symphonic. Now on the second one, ‘The Omens Of Death’, it is 100% 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.

You can buy the album on iTunes. Below is a trailer/interview with Lee regarding the album.

    Just watched “House of long shadows” the other day, a Hammer horror film homage from 1983, with Peter Cushing, Vincent Price and Christopher Lee. It starts out slow, but gets really good soon. Lee shined as usual and his interaction with Price was great. Recommended, if you want to celebrate his birthday honourably !

    Btw, some useless knowledge fitting to the occasion: Lee was a secret agent during WWII. When he played the bad guy in “007: The man with the golden gun” he instructed the sound technicians what the sound of a knife thrown into a man’s back really sounds like…

    I’ll wish him the bestest of birthdays because he is a terrific actor but there is no way in hell I’ll pick up a copy of his god awful music.
