Christopher Lee has released his latest heavy metal Christmas single for 2014, a tradition the actor began in 2012.

“This is the cooolest idea ever, not to mention i'm used to Mr. Lee being an evil wizard, so... XD HE'S SINGING HIS HOLIDAY SPIRIT IN AN EVIL WAY? XD” one person wrote on the iTunes page where the singles can be downloaded. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/darkest-carols-faithful-sing/id947838613

The carol, “Darkest Carols: Faithful Sing,” is a remake of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.”

Story continues below video.

Lee, 92, previously put out heavy metal versions of “Little Drummer Boy,” “Silent Night,” Jingle Hell,” and “My Way.”

The “Lord of the Rings” and “Dracula” actor has been playing heavy metal since the mid-2000s, putting out symphonic heavy metal albums in 2010 and 2013.

“The ‘most badass’ old man in the world!” one person wrote on the viral YouTube video of "Darkest Carols."

“Christopher Lee is a boss. He served during World War 2, and he's in Star Wars. And he's awesome,” another person wrote.

Some were unaware of Lee’s involvement with heavy metal, others were just happy to hear his latest release.
