Christopher Lee Turns Gear Into Metal Singer


Christopher Lee


The actor who portrays Saruman in 'Lords of the Ring' movies reveals that he will contribute to a metal album which recounts the life of the first Roman Emperor King Charlemagne.

Movie veteran Christopher Lee is reinventing himself as a metal singer - at the age of 87. "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" star has provided the vocals for a symphonic metal concept album which recounts the life of the first Roman Emperor King Charlemagne, who reigned in the eighth and ninth centuries.

Lee chose the project because he is a direct descendant of Charlemagne - and he's thrilled to have the chance to take his career in a different direction. The actor says, "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... (even) the Pope." The album, "Charlemagne: By The Sword And The Cross", has been produced by Italian composer Marco Sabiu and is due for release on March 15, 2010.
