Saruman Makes Xmas Metal Album

In case you live under a rock, Christopher Lee is the 90-year-old actor who portrayed the very sinister Saruman the White in the medieval fantasy saga Lord of the Rings. Besides being a die-hard Tolkien fan himself, Lee apparently has some other niche tastes – namely, Heavy Metal.

He recently released a hard rock album appropriately called “A Heavy Metal Christmas”, featuring power metal covers of classic Christmas tunes like the “The Little Drummer” and “Silent Night.” Speaking of music that sounds like Vikings yodeling, a guy in Sweden just won disability benefits from the government for his self-diagnosed addiction to Metal. Though Lee’s voice on this track is certainly epic, its hardly addiction-worthy. But still entirely awesome.
