“Happy New Year Everyone”. 2020 Ian celebrates his career with the 21-2-2020 release of his 30th studio album “In Flagrante Delicto” (meaning in the very act of committing a crime). In Ian’s humble opinion, “the crime being plastic waste, with an added touch of fantasy as well as fiction”. 10 hypnotic modern power rock synthesizer/guitar/vocal based songs, this 5th solo album covers a diverse musical style ranging from Yes style synthesizer atmospheres, to Whitesnake/ Foreigner classic rock. There’s even a hint of Rammstein together with a commercial heart felt Bad English/Peter Gabriel style ballad elogently performed by former Jean Michel Jarre guitarist Patrick Rondat. “In Flagrante Delicto” has a powerful lyrical anecdote with melodic power rock chords enhanced by modern synthesizer based tracks. With controversial issues very much in the mainstream media at present about plastic and toxic waste, which Ian addressed in part issues of global pollution back in 2006 in “Visions” his 4th solo album. “Visions of a better future at least”. Astonishingly after more than a decade the challenges humanity faces to this day seem to be becoming progressively bigger. After spending more than a decade (co-) writing and compiling songs to best illustrate these serious issues, Ian sings out a passionate message from the heart and retains the creative edge for a little fantasy for his fans. The message a simple wish to make more people aware of what’s happening in the best way musicians and singers know via their music. Ian once again delivers a great album with the talent and support of his family of incredible musicians; guitarists – Stephan Lill (Vanden plas) & co-writer; Patrick Rondat (Jean Michel Jarre/Elegy/Consortium Project; Timo Somers (Delain/Vengeance ; Keyboard player & Co-songwriter – Jeroen van der Wiel (Rock Emporium/Odyssice; drummers – Casey Grillo (Kamelot/Queensrÿke), Imre Daun (Brian Robertson band/Rock Emporium), Andreas Lill (Vanden Plas); bass guitarists – Barend Courbois (Blind Guardian), Torsten Reichert (Vanden Plas/Ian Parry – Visions) Guido Stocker, plus many more guest musicians performing a selection of 10 masterful tracks.
(see detailed list below).
As an established singer in the world of Rock & Metal with worldwide sales exceeding 200,000, Ian Parry’s almost 40 year career beginning with his first professional band Mono Pacific in 1981 (also featuring Zak Starkey Son of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr), has given him the opportunity to work with many well-known artists such as; Kamelot; Elegy; Ayreon; Mob Rules; Royal Hunt; Vengeance; Hammerhead; Valencia; Infinity Overture; Crystal Tears; Von Baltzer & his self-produced 5 album epic rock metal concept Consortium Project.
Now Ian joins forces together with an even more impressive collaboration of world class musicians in a melodic power rock formation performing 10 tracks on his 5th solo album “In Flagrante Delico”. (see tracklist below).
