Ian Parry biography
English vocalist, IAN PARRY is a familiar name to many in the world of hard rock and metal. He started his career with the band HAMMERHEAD in 1985. However, EMI Records shelved their debut album "Heart Made of Steel" and finally released their album 15 years later in 2000.

In the meantime, Parry worked with the English bands MONO PACIFIC and AIRRACE, before joining the Dutch hard rock band VENGEANCE in 1990. During his tenure with VENGEANCE, he established himself as a vocalist and also worked with future progressive metal icon ARJEN LUCASSEN, who was one of the two guitar players in the band.

In 1993, Parry launched his solo career, releasing the albums "Symphony of Dreams" in 1993, "Artistic License" in 1994, and "Thru' the Looking Glass" in 1995. Over the course of these three albums, Parry gradually evolved his musical explorations from AOR and hard rock towards metal tinged compositions. This evolvement was met positively by the fans and press alike, especially in Japan.

In 1996, Parry joined the Dutch power metal band ELEGY, which he participated in several highly acclaimed and successful albums, the last of these was released in 2002.

In 1998, Parry started the highly successful side project - CONSORTIUM PROJECT - with 4 album releases so far.

In 2006, Parry released his fourth solo studio album "Visions." This album, more so than his previous solo releases, saw him venturing into the progressive metal territory.

Besides the major points to his career mentioned above, Parry has also been active with other bands, some of minor importance and with minor roles. Of these the most notable are helping with the production of the band project PERFECT STRANGERS on the album "Outside Lookin' In" that was released in 1998. And contributing vocals on ANDRE ANDERSEN's solo release "Black on Black" in 2002 and guest appearances on AYREON's "The Final Experiment," "Flight of the Migrator," and "Ayeronauts Only."

WHY IS THIS ARTIST LISTED AT PROGARCHIVES:

Besides being an active contributor to many releases by several artists in the genre, IAN PARRY, has gradually evolved towards the progressive metal genre on his solo releases. He was suggested to and approved by the Progressive Metal team primarily due to his latest solo release "Visions."

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

— First review of this album —
4 stars Strong release by this Netherlands based vocalist.

With a multitude of musical friends helping out, Ian Parry has made a really catchy album, combining elements from AOR, melodic hard rock and power metal into a strong and captivating creation. Parry's vocals are excellent, the choruses are strong, and the tunes are short but good from start to finish. All well written and excellently performed, the focus on short songs and the multitude of guest musicians on instruments as well as vocals add just the right amount of variation for such a production.

Nothing new or original, but an album to be enjoyed by most fans of melodic hard rock and melodic metal; especially those into strong and passionate vocals in their music.
