It is with great pleasure to announce 5 confirmed live dates for the “Act of Crime” Tour commencing from October 2020.

(N.B. Any changes due to the unsettling circumstances we are experiencing, will be announced).
Further details coming soon. Take care & stay safe Ian.
Englishman singer Ian Parry has been active in the metal world for more than
thirty years & naturally with a well-earned reputation. In addition to his
vocal contributions in bands such as; Hammerhead; Elegy; Vengeance & his
own Consortium Project, he has also made virtually countless guest contributions
on numerous albums & projects. In addition to his guest performances Ian
has also been active as a solo artist & now delivers his new 5th
solo album “In Flagrante Delicto”.
Ian Parry brings us this no-nonsense classic hard rock album with a touch of
progressive influences, but always keeps an eye on the melodic aspect in the
music. In this style he swims vocally like a fish in water, which is clear in
this new record. Even the test of time has not in any way effected the voice of
this old school rocker. In fact Ian delivers a powerful performance alongside
instrumentalists; Stephan Lill & Andreas Lill (Vanden Plas); Patrick Rondat
(Elegy/Consortium Project/Jean Michel Jarre); Timo Somers (Delain); Barend
Courbois (Blind Guardian/Rock Emporium) & Casey Grillo (Kamelot/Queensryche/Consortium
Project) are a noticeable driving force on “In Flagrante Delicto”. Naturally
the list of musicians can be called impressive to say the least, but the
success of a record still stands or falls due to the quality of the song
material. I am proud to say that Ian has delivered the goods on this records
admirably. The best examples of how strong the songs are can be heard in the
title track “In Flagrante Delicto”; “Fools
Paradise” & “So Far So Good”. The real strength of this record is that
there are no weak songs. This is not a uniquely innovative album, but
personally I am not looking for that at
all. In conclusion we can say Ian Parry’s
5th solo album “In Flagrante Delicto” is a well made album that will
reach the hearts of all classic hard rock followers.
