In a tradition dating back to 2012, 92-year-old actor and horror icon Christopher Lee (Horror of Dracula, the Lord of the Rings trilogy) has released his latest heavy metal Christmas carol to rock out to this holiday.  In past EPs, Lee has covered The Little Drummer Boy, Silent Night, the deliciously devious Jingle Hell and Sinatra's My Way using his deep, booming vocal talents to bring an edgy essence to the familiar tunes.  This year's headbanging hybrid is a metal version of Hark! The Herald Angels Sing called Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing with Lee on vocals and featuring the grinding guitar work of musician Hedras Ramos.  Check out the video below with a medley of songs past and the newest single, available for purchase on iTunes.
