I'd put this under Music, but, dang, this has to be the awesomest thing EVER and it needs more exposure.

Christopher "Count Saruman Dooku" Lee released, earlier this year, his debut heavy metal album (http://www.amazon.com/Charlemagne-Sword-Cross-Christopher-Lee/dp/B0037OUHC2/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1291764076&sr=1-1).

Seriously. This has to be the coolest thing ever, and I say that with 100% certainty, even having never heard it.

Wow crazy! In the description on Amazon it says that Lee is a direct descendant of Charlemagne. Did anybody else know this?

The Charlemagne thing was mentioned in the press for the album when it was released, I have heard about half of it and it is proper.

I am pretty into metal and heard interviews with Lee regarding the album and his work with MANOWAR- he has performed onstage with MANOWAR several times, and is even featured on their new album, reading a part originally read by Orson Welles back in the early 80's. Here is the song featuring Lee, Dark Avenger http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeGytB0BLoo

His work with MANOWAR is what really pushed him to decide to make his own metal album since he had so much fun doing it and actually digs the music
