Christopher Lee, Dracula, Dooku and Adorer of Death Metal, Dies at 93
1. He Has a Death Metal Album
Perhaps the most obscure fact about the Late horror Icon involves his penchant for Metal. No, I’m not talking iron making… I’m talking Iron Maiden. That’s right, Lee is a acclaimed operatic bass vocalist who has employed his vocal stylings on many a metal album. Lee’s first contact with heavy metal music was a duet with Fabio Lione, the former lead vocalist of the Italian symphonic power metal band Rhapsody of Fire, on the single “The Magic of the Wizard’s Dream” from the Symphony of Enchanted Lands II album. From there Lee went on to collaborate with numerous other Metal projects, even releasing his own album “Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross” which earned Lee the “Spirit of Metal” award at the 2010 Metal Hammer Golden Gods ceremony.
