Christopher Lee Is More Metal Than You

January 6th, 2010 by frankie23

Oh, hells bells, this is pretty damn awesome. Christopher Lee, the second-best Dracula of all time, is making a metal album, a tribute to Charlemagne. No, seriously, check this out

Christopher Lee, famed star of Hammer horror movies, Lord Of The Rings, and much, much more will be coming soon to some earphones near you. Videogum and The Guardian have the news that the 87-year-old actor plans to release a “symphonic metal” album about the life and career of Charlemagne, the first Holy Roman Emperor and a direct ancestor of Lee himself. “To my surprise and indeed great pleasure, I have suddenly found that there is another string to my bow,” Lee announced.

This is, quite simply, one of the most wonderful things I’ve ever heard, purely on concept. If it’s half as face-meltingly awesome as it should be, we’re all going to be in for a good time.

I Am Murloc

You know, I don’t really do the whole World of Warcraft thing. I like the RTS games, no doubt, though I preferred Starcraft, but after playing ten hours as a Tauren and consistently having to run for my life from ostrich-things, I don’t expect to ever try the game again. However, this video makes me glad the game exists, if only for allowing a band to call themselves Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain. Frankly, the song’s pretty damn rockin’ too, and I say this as a fan of the metal genre. It’s certainly superior to some of the sludge Cannibal Corpse have shuddered out.
