Dracula, Saruman and Heavy Metal Master Dies

Yes, I’m speaking of just one person: Christopher Lee, best known a scary actor dude (he was also Scaramanga in The Man with the Golden Gun and, uh, Evil Sender from The Stupids in 1998) died June 7 at the age of 93.

Later in life–at age 90!–Lee discovered metal and set out to make some music. His discography include Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross (2010), Charlemagne: The Omens of Death (2013), two Heavy Metal Christmas EPs and Metal Knight from 2014.
