    A new Christmas song! Oh joy! (No, seriously). Christopher Lee: more awesome than you since the beginning of time (because I'm pretty sure he's immortal).

    Ok, let's take it for what it is. And it's a very bad album. But hell, you gotta show the man some respect ;)

    Dear GrandHibou, Opinion is a statement in which one expresses one's feelings towards given subject, be it music, games, books or movies. While your opinion is quite aggressively attacking other people's opinions. feel free to do it. I just have to ask: Why didi you even wrote this? It sounds just like hate to me.

    Well the album isn't very good but that's not the point. Much respect for a man who gets into metal in his 80s, truly inspirational to see someone doing whatever the hell he wants.
