Anyone heard this? I remember Lee had did that metal Christmas album, but I didnt know he was in an actual band.....and singing! Dude is 91!


It can't be good, but I gotta give this guy props.....90 year old getting into metal is pretty fucked especially when he already has another career.

I'm the biggest fan on Earth of his work as an actor but Charlemagne is nothing but rubbish. Whoever talked him into doing this shoud be shot.

It's hilariously bad unfortunately. Whatever, the dude still rules.

This might be less of a "joke" if the band had released songs like "Gloves of metal" or "Spirit horse of the Cherokee" and had albums of muscular guys that are oiled up and themselves in loincloths, right?

Christopher Lee is an absolute legend and I love his work as an actor but yeah, as it has been said this piece of shit is beyond terrible.

Hahah, I borrowed this from a local library just because I had seen some youtube clips and had to hear it just for the sake of being a Christopher Lee Heavy Metal album. Of course I didn't expect anything good so I wasn't even dissapointed. Very Happy

The album itself is a lot of narrating, and really stupid and boring songs. He's one of the greatest actors, but something he can't do is metal music.

Dude, did DeMaio steal your girlfriend or something? Your obsession with Manowar/Darkthrone is obnoxiously ridiculous and a clear symptom of advanced OCD. I'd go and talk to a psychiatrist asap if I were you.

Clearly the irony of bashing a supposed "joke" of a metal album is lost on you.

I think his work with Rhapsody is excellent, but then again there's a huge difference between doing some backing vocals in a couple of songs and having your own record to perform on as a lead singer. I find it odd that he's ashamed of those old horror movies he did and refuses to talk of it whereas he seems to be goddamn proud of this awful Charlemagne thing.

I like where the other singer plays his sword like a guitar.

Something about his recent fascination with metal seems a little hokey and forced, like he figured he could make a few bucks because his Manowar/Rhapsody work was positively received. That interview with Iommi is painfully awkward.

The first Charlemagne album is a piece of shit. Obviously written by some guy who's barely heard ten minutes of metal in his life. It's more of a shitty audio book. Cool actor, cool singer, but this just doesn't work.

Considering he doesn't mind acting in any piece of shit as long as they pay, I don't see why he wouldn't do the same with music. He seems to put an honest effort as a performer, and that's what he always was about, regardless of the quality of the final product.
