Lord Of The Rings star Christopher Lee is heading for the heavy rock charts with Manowar.
The horror movie legend will make a guest appearance on the re-recorded version of the group's fabled debut album Battle Hymns, which will be released next year (11).
A statement from the band reads, "He has played key parts in some of the biggest, most legendary movie franchises of all times. He has played kings, wizards, evil forces and shining knights. He is worshipped by movie and theatre fans all over the world. He speaks multiple languages fluently and is an accomplished singer of opera and metal as well.
"He has been knighted by the Queen of England and honored with numerous awards. And now, he is joining forces with The Kings Of Metal to rewrite heavy metal history: The legendary Sir Christopher Lee will be the narrating voice on Dark Avenger on Battle Hymns 2011!"
