Looking for something different to play during your upcoming Christmas party? We don’t cover too music news on Daily Dead, but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share Christopher Lee singing The Little Drummer Boy and Silent Night. Both songs make up “Christopher Lee. A Heavy Metal Christmas” and were recently released on iTunes and Amazon.
Christopher Lee may have turned 90 this year, but it doesn’t look like he plans to retire any time soon. He appeared in Dark Shadows earlier this year, you can catch him in The Hobbit, and he isn’t afraid to try something a little bit different like this heavy metal Christmas project. We’ve included a sample of both songs below and here is information on the people involved:
