An unexpected amazing review in the Dutch magazine Arrow Lords of Score 8 stars out 10.

Ian Parry – In Flagrante Delicto review 8 out 10 Arrowlord of Metal.NL

(English translation)

The 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”.

As usual 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.
