Worship Metal are incredibly sad to hear that Sir Christopher Lee, an icon of Horror (and in his later years, Heavy Metal) has passed away aged 93.
Responsible for bringing to life many of Literature’s iconic figures, he was also a true Heavy Metal fan and lent his operatic bass tone to works by Manowar and Rhapsody Of Fire before recording his full Metal debut in 2010, entitled Charlemagne: By The Sword And The Cross. A fully-fledged Symphonic Power Metal concept album, Charlemagne was followed by the harder, more metallic Charlemagne: The Omens of Death and the Metal Knight (EP ) 3 years later.
Officially the oldest performer in the history of Heavy Metal, Sir Christopher Lee’s mesmerising presence on screen and forceful baritone on record will be sorely missed. R.I.P.
