Iconic actor Christopher Lee (known for his roles in such films as Dracula, The Man With The Golden Gun, Lord of the Rings, The Wicker Man and the Star Wars prequels,) has announced that at the age of 90, he will release his second metal album, "The Omens Of Death," under the Charlemagne moniker he used two years ago for his first metal album, "Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross." Lee claims that this second album will see him move into "full on" heavy metal, with music arranged by Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner. You can listen to two new songs, "Let Legend Mark Me as the King" and "The Ultimate Sacrifice," by heading to Amazon.com, where you may also purchase the music. A lengthy video in which Christopher Lee describes the music, as well as his storied acting career, can be seen below. The album does not yet have a release date, but it is expected to be released sometime later this year.

^^^Agreed.
One of the most talented and awesome human beings on Earth.
The most recognizeable voice in Hollywood.
Anything with Lee is made instantly better.
Even if the project turns out to 50 shades of suck, Lee always brings the awesome no matter what.
