Are You Ready for Christopher Lee's Metal Album?

No, you say?

You're not ready for Christopher Lee embracing the heavy metal genre?

That's okay, neither is Christopher Lee.

I like this actor a lot, and God love a 92 year old releasing an album called "Metal Knight," but this is not Metal.

This wouldn't be metal even back in 1986.

His album contains a couple of standards from Man of La Mancha (he calls Don Quixote "the most metal fictional character I know") and Paul Anka's My Way.

He says that's metal too -- the brazen nature of the singer's declaration that he has not a damn thing to apologize for.

He's previously released some "heavy metal" Christmas albums. (What?)

Okay I think this is all pretty silly but he's a cool guy and if he wants to call this "metal" I guess I'll Let him:

During the Second World War, Sir Christopher served with the Special Operations Executive, set up to conduct espionage and sabotage in occupied Europe. However, he has never talked about his role.

In an interview with The Telegraph in 2011, he said: I was attached to the SAS from time to time but we are forbidden former, present, or future to discuss any specific operations.

"Lets just say I was in Special Forces and leave it at that. People can read into that what they like.

Now that's metal.
