christopher lee album

We all know and love Sir Christopher Lee. He’s a legendary actor who began his film career in 1948 and is today a pop culture icon thanks to his roles in Dracula, Wickerman, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars.

But did you know that the 87-year-old British actor is also an accomplished singer? Not only that, but Sir Christopher loves the metal!!! He’s provided spoken word narration and vocals for metal bands like Rhapsody and now Lee will be releasing a symphonic metal solo album, Charlemagne.

Charlemagne, which will be released on March 15, 2010, is a concept album about King Charlemagne, the First Holy Roman Emperor.

Check out a sample from Charlemagne here below, along with more information about the upcoming album.

About

The story of King Charlemagne, First Holy Roman Emperor, acted and sung by the legendary actor Christopher Lee. Sir Christopher is the highest grossing actor of all time, with cinematic milestones such as “Lord Of The Rings”, “Star Wars”, “The Man with the Golden Gun” and “Dracula”, amongst over 280 movies – and still counting!

The Carandinis, Lee’s maternal ancestors, were given the right to bear the coat of arms of the Holy Roman Empire by the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa. Through his Carandini ancestors, Christopher Lee has a direct link to Charlemagne, and has decided for the first time in his life to pay homage to his distinguished ancestor, who is credited as “The Father of Europe”.

Charlemagne is a concept album with original words and symphonic metal music.

Composer Marco Sabiu, best known for his collaborations with Kylie Minogue, Take That, Pavarotti, Morricone, has created a truly epic canvas by introducing modern metal symphonies, in a style which resembles a movie score. Marie-Claire Calvet, a graduate from Bristol University, transports the listener into “The Dark Ages”, with a very powerful storyline and mesmerising lyrics. A full orchestra, heavy metal musicians, choir and special guest vocalists bring the legend of Charlemagne to life.
