Former ELEGY/VENGEANCE singer Ian Parry has inked a deal with ProgRock Records for the U.S. release of CONSORTIUM PROJECT IV album, entitled "Children of Tomorrow". The CD, which will be issued in Europe via Metal Heaven, is due for release in North America on July 31. The label will also release Parry's last solo album, "Visions", which came out in Europe in 2006.
Unlike Parry's previous CONSORTIUM PROJECT releases, "Children of Tomorrow" is said to be "a more diverse rock metal production with progressive elements reminiscent of his earlier productions." Parry spent more than a year on this epic production, writing, recording and mixing with former ELEGY bandmate/keyboard player Joshua Dutrieux. The songs were written as a collaboration between Parry, Dutrieux and the latest addition to the CONSORTIUM family, ex-WITHIN TEMPTATION drummer Ivar de Graaf.
"Children of Tomorrow" track listing:
01. A Sign Of The Times
02. Nowhere Fast
06. Made in Heaven
07. Let The Wind Carry You
10. Path Of Destruction
11. Children Of Tomorrow
12. How Far
