Did you see in the headline where I mentioned the idea of Sir Christopher Lee and Metal together? Well, I don’t blame you for thinking that was a joke, but it’s totally true. As in, it’s happening. Stereogum has the tip on this new musical endeavor, but you can use the widget below to listen to a few short samples from his collaboration – an album exploring historical figure and legit P.I.M.P., Charlemagne â€“ with Italian symphonic metal dudes Rhapsody. Also included in the widget is a YouTube lecture from Saruman himself on this new venture that he’s setting out on at the ripe young age of eighty-seven-fucking-years-old.
Already, this is the greatest decade for music.
