Horror film legend Christopher Lee, who turned 92 on Tuesday, is celebrating the milestone by releasing a heavy rock mini-album, Metal Knight, on Monday.

The Dracula actor is a long-time devotee of heavy metal and has already several album releases under his belt.

"I associate heavy metal with fantasy because of the tremendous power that the music delivers," explained Lee.
