Today, it was announced that Christopher Lee passed away, leaving behind a long and storied career that took him from the military, to film, to music, and beyond. He was one talented dude, that's for sure. In his later years, he put out a few heavy metal albums (including a Christmas album). However, he also told the story of Charlemagne's life and the lives of his successors over the course of two albums, the first being By the Sword and Cross and the second being The Omens of Death. For tonight's Music Club, we've got the second one in its entirety. So take a moment to sit back and enjoy the historically-accurate heavy metal. Rest in peace, Christopher.

What are some of your favorite works of Christopher Lee's?
