Iconic actor Christopher Lee has recently 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. To celebrate that, he has released a new video for the song "The Bloody Verdict Of Verden", taken from his debut album released in 2010, available for viewing below.

The music from the second album will be arranged by Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner. You can listen to a sample from the new single "Let Legend Mark Me As The King", as a teaser for the new album, by heading to this location.

Christopher Lee has also done narration for Rhapsody Of Fire and Manowar in the past.

This is the single most overwhelmingly cheesy thing in this history of history. But it's Christopher Lee. Ninety years of being the goddamn man. All Hail Saruman, Dracula, and apparently the slayer of the Saxon men.

Oh God not again

The video clip is terrible I must say XD he could have just done this instead.

The most epic man alive.

Some people just don't know when to call it quits.

This was painful to watch...

HAHAHA. I remember thinking, when he released his debut, that finally someone has managed to top Arjen Lucassen in pure cheese. Good laughs, though.
Apothecary - 11.06.2012 at 17:54  
I can smell the mold on the cheese already.
The Shape 1973 - 11.06.2012 at 18:21  
Don't laugh he is the new Kamelot singer.

The guy is 90 years old. Just let him have his little fun.
EDIT: Who the fuck is Richie Faulkner...
Scuzzy McDouche - 11.06.2012 at 18:48  
Richie Faulkner is K.K. Downing's replacement in Judas Priest. Ugh, I never thought I would type the words "K.K. Downing's Replacement".

Anyway this is cheesy beyond belief. Much respect to Christopher Lee, but I am not going to say this is epic just because it is him, because, well...it's not, lol.

This was indeed painful to watch.
psykometal - 11.06.2012 at 18:54  
This really is terrible. Have to agree with Psychorager, refuse to call this epic just cuz it's Christopher Lee. The man is a very epic actor but this is abysmal, not only a pain to watch but a pain to listen to as well...

Yeah, agree with the other dude... this was hilarious. At 90 I would also like to do stupid shit like that for the giggles.
Also, the song gets like... 1000x better if you hear "I spill the bloody of the SEXY MEN!". Man, the choir (if we can call it that) was awesome, even a chair shows more expression in its flat face.
Timmeh - 12.06.2012 at 05:07  
It is 'SIR' Christopher Lee everybody!
bloodwrage - 12.06.2012 at 08:06  
I think that he still deserves his time in the sun. Tolkien actually promised him that he would be able to play Gandalf if there was ever a movie made based on the Lord of the Rings.
Lonniehaskel - 12.06.2012 at 08:18  
Volunteer to fight the Soviets in the Finnish Winter War, intelligence officer in the Royal Air Force during World War II, James Bond villain, Lord of the Rings villain, Star Wars villain, symphonic metal vocalist, and he's 90 years old. So much WIN in one man.

Well, my only optimism for the new album is it surely can't be as bad as "The Sword And The Cross" which was quite abysmal, I have to say. I love Christopher Lee, and he is a legend, but even that fact couldn't save that terrible album. Here's hoping that "The Omens Of Death" will be a bit better!

Yeah, it was unbelievably boring.

Yep, and there was also hardly any metal on the album at all. Which was weird when the album was talked up as Christopher Lee "doing metal"...
Mad Arab666 - 13.06.2012 at 18:56  
Props to him for trying but I'm not expecting a masterpiece or even something average.

It was more like Christopher Lee doing "Christopher Lee metal".
BitterCOld - 14.06.2012 at 03:18  
Let's see how many other 90 year olds do something vaguely tied to modern tastes.

while it's not good, i'll give the dude credit for the try.
Daggon - 14.06.2012 at 21:10  
Ok, this was quite painful to watch, the only thing I can compare this video is another video, like anything that Rhapsody did on their early years, damn, I love Sir Christopher Lee's job as an actor but this, this goes beyond my tastes, I'm surprised I resisted the whole 5 minutes of the video.
musclassia - 17.06.2012 at 00:10  
Showed this to my (ever-so-slightly-metal-liking) housemate, 'I shed the blood of the saxon men' had already become a line sufficient to set off instant laughter. This video is up there with The Room for funniest so-bad-it's-good video I've seen, it's hilarious. Go Christopher Lee!
Stabby - 19.06.2012 at 23:00  
Lol.

Lol.

Lol.

Lol.

He's still a badass. But damn. Lol.

The man is 90 years old and he probably has all the chronic diseases of our world. Even if it's cheesy, this man deserves respect.
