Sir Christopher Lee released his newest heavy metal Christmas singles for this year, adding to the canon of Christmas heavy metal that the 92-year old actor has been releasing yearly since 2012.

In collaboration with guitarist Hedras Ramos, “Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing” is Lee’s fourth EP and third Christmas single, a spin on “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” Lee released heavy metal tunes “Little Drummer Boy,” “Silent Night,” “Jingle Hell,” and “My Way” in previous years. As Time points out, “Jingle Hell” made its way to No. 18 on last year’s Billboard charts.

Lee can next be seen in The Hobbit: The Battles of the Five Armies, though it’s pretty safe to say that he’ll stick to the Elvish tunes if he sings in the movies.
