Christopher Lee Explains Second Metal Album
Sir Christopher Lee, legendary british actor, promises that his upcoming studio album will be "definitely heavy metal." "Star Wars" and "Lord of the Rings" star recently revealed that he will release "Charlemagne: The Omens of Death" to celebrate his 91st birthday. It follows "Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross," which came out in 2010 and won him a Metal Hammer Golden Gods award, an event he describes as "the most amazing occasion." But, according to his own words, the new record is more metal than the previous one. "The first 'Charlemagne' album is metal, of course, but what I sang was more symphonic," he told Classic Rock. "'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. Some of the tracks didn't have any music at all and were just Sir Christopher singing his melodies. I remember how surreal it was sitting in my place at the time with Saruman blasting out over the speakers! I've no idea what the neighbours thought!"
