Consortium Project I Criminals and Kings album new music review

Consortium Project: I - Criminals and Kings

Melodic Heavy/Power Metal
3.5/5.0

On the heels of the concluding album V - Species, Lion Music is reissuing the previous four Consortium Project albums, beginning at the start with I - Criminals and Kings. Now fans, and those who missed them, can discover the first conception of principal, vocalist, and keyboardist Ian Parry vision for this pentalogy. This work, as with all the others to come, are remastered and include bonus tracks. In the case of I - Criminals and Kings, these are A Miracle Is All We Need (acoustic version feat. Patrick Rondat on acoustic guitar) and Evilworld (demo version feat. Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon) on bass guitar).

All told I - Criminals and Kings displays Parry's mammoth vision to create bombastic and epic melodic heavy metal. Between this and his power gritty vocals, these have been Consortium Project's constant, but also not forgetting the fine musician. However, it also displays how uniformly predictable and repetitive Parry was destined to be from the beginning to the final installment. Likely, These reissues will appeal only to the most diehard Consortium Project fan.
