91-Year-Old ‘Dracula’ Legend Christopher Lee Releases ‘A Heavy Metal Christmas Too’

Subscribe to 97.9 WGRD on

We metalheads love to argue about music. There’s absolutely nothing that we can all agree upon, except for one thing: Christopher Lee is the man.

The 91-year-old has released two heavy metal albums, singing in a powerful baritone while his backing band shreds around him. Lee’s newest metal offerings are re-imagined classics of “Jingle Bells” and the Frank Sinatra classic”My Way.”

Christopher Lee is best known for playing the role of Count Dracula in nearly a dozen motion pictures. Lee has also triumphed in two “Star Wars” films and all three “Lord of the Rings” movies, along with about 200 other films throughout his long career.

Lee’s metal music career is still very new, having released his first full-length heavy metal record, “Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross,”‘ in 2010. He followed that album up with  “Charlemagne: The Omens of Death” this year.

The living legend put out “A Heavy Metal Christmas” in 2012, and is following it up with “A Heavy Metal Christmas Too.”

Within the new Christmas EP, Lee sings “Jingle Hell,” an alternative take on “Jingle Bells.”

“I sing another version; it’s a bit more naughty,” he said. “It’s not bad; I mean bad in the sense of unpleasant.

“It’s entertaining; it’s certainly different.”

Lee adds: “And now in closing, of course, I wish you all a very happy Christmas, and for the sake of the world and those people in it, a safe New Year in 2014.
