Christopher Lee Releasing New EP "Metal Knight"

Hollywood legend Christopher Lee, who will turn 92 on Tuesday May 27th, is releasing next week a mini album appropriately called "Metal Knight."

Sir Christopher is well-known for his devotion to fantasy and heavy metal themes, with several album releases and collaborations in the genre to his name. “I associate heavy metal with fantasy because of the tremendous power that the music delivers," he says.

The star of The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars sagas inspired generations of artists with his dark yet elegant portrayals, with his interpretation of Dracula considered by many to be the quintessential, while The Wicker Man has inspired many a metal song.

"Metal Knight" is a mini album featuring 7 tracks, two of which are covers from the "Man of La Mancha" musical, based on the character Don Quixote. Due out May 26th, the "Metal Knight" track listing is as follows:

01. I, Don Quixote
02. The Impossible Dream
03. The Toreador March
04. My Way (Radio Edit)
05. I, Don Quixote (Extended Version)
06. The Impossible Dream (Extended Version)
07. The Toreador March (Extended Version)

CHISTOPHER LEE IS METAL, BUT I DON'T THINK DON QUIXOTE IS. CHARLEMAGNE WAS A BETTER CONCEPT.
