The 10 track album has been arranged by Richie Faulkner, guitarist with Judas Priest, reports.

Of the release, Lee commented: “The first ‘Charlemagne’ album is metal, of course, but what I sang was more symphonic. Now on the second one, ‘The Omens Of Death’, it is 100% heavy metal. I’ve done my bits and pieces, and they are heavy metal. I’m not screaming or anything like that, but it is definitely heavy metal.”
