CONSORTIUM PROJECT THE STORY...

Ian founded Consortium Project back in 1999 starting with Consortium Project I 'Criminals & Kings' (featuring performances from Ayreon, Kamelot and Vanden Plas members). Consortium Project II 'Continuum in Extremis' in 2001 (featuring Rhapsody bassist Patrice Guers, members of Elegy and French guitar virtuoso Patrick Rondat). Consortium Project III 'Terra Incognita (The Undiscovered World)' featuring performances from guitarist Mike Chlasciak (Halford) and many more, then Consortium Project IV 'Children of Tomorrow' (featuring former Within Temptation drummer Ivar de Graaf & Wintersbane guitarist Lou St Paul).

Newcomers to Consortium Project V are female vocalists Bulgarian Rock singer Anna Lozanova and Gothic metal singer Lene Petersen (Infinity Overture). Joining Ian in the studio will be Kamelot drummer Casey Grillo, ex-Pain of Salvation bassist Kristoffer Gildenlöw, Dawn of Destiny bass player Jens Faber, Circle II Circle guitarist Bill Hudson and Infinity Overture guitarist Niels Vejlyt who has already laid down some ripping guitar tracks on a number of Consortium 5 songs during Ian's visit to Copenhagen in October 2009.

Quote Ian: "It's great to have Casey Grillo back on drums doing an incredible job like he did on C III and my solo c.d. Visions and this time I have more fantastic young kick ass bass players Kris Gildenlow en Jens Faber completing the rhythm section. So with rip roaring solos from US Guitarist Bill Hudson & Danish guitarist Niels Vejlyt, it's going to be a killer album with a mix of everything that is cool in Rock and Metal".

CONSORTIUM PROJECT V 'SPECIES'
WORLD WIDE LICENSE DEAL WITH
LION MUSIC FINLAND









Ian Parry has signed a 5 album worldwide license deal with Lion Music Finland for the new Consortium Project V "Species" album and the complete 4 album Consortium Project Quadrilogy Remasters, incudling bonus tracks and special guest performances from members of Kamelot, Elegy, Vanden Plas, Halford, Within Temptation and many more.

"Species" is a culmination of brutal and melodic Symfo-gothic-power metal at its best.

Quote Ian: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported the Consortium Project V and Quadrilogy albums. It is a challenge this time around to write and produce the best and heaviest of all 5 Consortium albums. I really want to emphasis the fact that in my conceptual story women save the world. This is why I want more involvement from these great female vocalists on Consortium V 'Species'.

IAN PARRY concept, songwriter and producer of the CONSORTIUM PROJECT Consortium Project Quadrilogy Remasters 2011

Recorded and mixed by Marcus Teske & Ian Parry at the Bazement Studios in Germany.

Consortium V 'Species' will be available in 2011 with a release including the Consortium Quadrilogy. Quote Ian ” CV is a killer album and the strongest of all 5 Consortium albums and an incredible mix of everything that is powerful in Prog Rock and Gothic Power Metal".

Wishing to complete his inspirational concept, Ian Parry has written & produced the final chapter from his Consortium Project concept entitled C-V "Species".

A classic epic Sci-fi scenario combining a selection of the best musicians in rock & metal and some who have performed on the 4 previous consortium albums such as; Stephan Lill (Vanden Plas) Casey Grillo (Kamelot) Kris Gildenlöw (ex-Pain of Salvation) to newcomers from the gothic metal scene Lene Petersen (Infinity Overture) & Jens Faber (from the German power metal band Dawn of Destiny).

The worldwide release of C-V "Species" in 2011 will be the 21st album release from Ian Parry celebrating a career of over 25 years in the world of rock & metal.

Consortium Project V "Species" is in essence a conceptual masterpiece.
