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

"Species" is a culmination of brutal and melodic Symfo-gothic-power metal at its best. 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 Gildenl÷w (ex-Pain of Salvation) and Niels Vejlyt (Infinty Overture) to newcomers from the gothic metal scene Jens Faber (from the German power metal band Dawn of Destiny) and Lene Peterson..

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 already picking up rave reviews:

"Species is the ultimate combination of the strongest songs to date written by Ian Parry, brought alive by commanding performances from some of the best musical talent in today s rock/metal scene. These qualities add up to make this final album the ultimate Consortium Project release" (

"Species delivers just what you'd expect from Ian Parry & Co., so if you enjoy massive guitar riffs, soaring melodies, symphonic keyboards, and Parry's leather lunged vocals, there's a lot to enjoy here" (

"The songwriting and performances are all first class and the album has an excitement about it from start to finish. All of which adds up to make this essential listening" (

"The most consistent and impressive set Parry has been involved in since his Elegy days" (
