Christopher LeeMovie veteran Christopher Lee is reinventing himself as a metal singer – at the age of 87. The “Lord of the Rings” star has provided the vocals for a symphonic metal concept album which recounts the life of the first Roman Emperor King Charlemagne, who reigned in the eighth and ninth centuries.

Lee chose the project because he is a direct descendant of Charlemagne – and he’s thrilled to have the chance to take his career in a different direction.

The actor says, “It’s fascinating for me that, at this stage in my life, people are beginning to look upon me as a metal singer. When this comes out as a complete album, it’s going to be sensational.

“There’s a lot of characters in this particular album… There’s Charlemagne himself, of course, which I sing, and then there’s young Charlemagne, Charlemagne’s father, Charlemagne’s brother… (even) the Pope.”

The album, “Charlemagne: By The Sword And The Cross”, has been produced by Italian composer Marco Sabiu and is due for release on March 15.
