Things We Saw Today: The Cover of Christopher Lee’s New Metal Album


This Friday sees the release of Charlemagne: The Omens of Death, the second metal LP by actor/secret agent/metal musician Sir Christopher Lee. Death and Taxes has song clips and a video where Lee “shares the inspiration for his calling as a metal sorcerer.”

Blastr has five new pieces of promo art from The Wolverine. This is the one with ninjas.

Researcher David Legg discovered a 505-million-year-old fossil of a lobster ancestor with scissor-hand claws. So he named it after Johnny Depp. Ladies and gents, meet Kooteninchela deppi. (ScienceDaily, via Chocolate & Cream Cake)

    Wait, that Christopher Lee metal album isn’t made up?

    I… think I’ve just sideslipped into a parallel universe, where kickass memes are actually real.

    Holy crap, I have to find some cats!

    Lee and George Takei are both so wonderful that the universe just isn’t good enough to deserve them.

    His Alcohol song in “The Return of Captain Invincible” is brilliant. And incredibly catchy.

  • Duke Fleed

    The first album came out 3 years ago and ol’ Lee has been collaborating with other metal bands like Rhapsody since the mid 2000s.

    What made you think it was made up?

    Of course, of course, I forget that this must all seem perfectly normal to the native people of this strange new universe. I bet all kinds of fantastic things happen here, like maybe JFK spotted Oswald in that window and knocked him out with a boomerang.

    Which, for the record, is still not as cool as Christopher Lee doing a metal album.

    I love his collaboration with Rhapsody. His narration on Symphony of Enchanted Lands II is perfect.

    I didn’t know he had albums himself, though. I must check this out.

    I feel like Christopher Lee has cornered a large percentage of the world’s supply of kickass.

    Balls. Do NOT read the comments on that rape-tweet article. Just…just don’t.

  • Phil Smith

    This is his SECOND album. It was NEVER a joke.

    Christopher Lee is a metal sorcerer.

    Ewww. I read the article and completely forgot comments were a thing that could be read. So glad I didn’t check them. I can imagine how terrible some of them must be.

    It wasn’t a boomerang, it was a phaser set to stun. But close!
