Horror film luminary set to release Charlemagne: The Omens Of Death on birthday next week

Legendary actor Christopher Lee has announced that he will be releasing his second metal album, Charlemagne: The Omens Of Death (artwork above), next Monday, May 27, when he turns 91, report Ultimate Guitar.

It follows up on the symphonic metal Charlemagne: By The Sword And The Cross album he recorded in 2010, and was arranged by Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner.

Says Lee: "The first Charlemagne album is metal, of course, but what I sang was more symphonic. Now on the second one, The Omens Of Death, it is 100% 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."
