Christopher Lee releasing heavy metal Christmas songs

Friday 21 Dec 2012 7:54a.m.

Saruman's heavy metal Christmas

Horror movie legend Sir Christopher Lee is giving fans a festive treat by releasing a collection of Christmas songs with a heavy metal twist.

The 90-year-old actor plays the evil wizard Saruman in Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit has dabbled in heavy metal over the last few years, recording several of his own albums and working with bands including Rhapsody of Fire and Manowar, as well as Judas Priest star Richie Faulkner.

Lee, who is a classically-trained singer, is now offering up a collection of holiday songs, including heavy metal covers of Little Drummer Boy and Silent Night.

The festive tracks, titled A Heavy Metal Christmas, will be available via online retailer iTunes.
