Enslain Magazine Issue #8
Having never heard Fictional Prison before I was a bit surprised. I guess it could be classified as power metal. The vocal styling is similar to Sanctuary (anybody remember them?) This is a good effort, though a bit rough around the edges. It could have used a little more time spent in studio, maybe a group of guys who could work a little better together. Overall it strikes me as uninteresting. The band has been kicking around for 10 years now, and through several name and member changes it just seems like the package is still not ready for mass consumption. All the bad luck these guys had during the 90's seems to show in the music. I wish these guys some luck as I think they have a shot, they just need more time to get it together.
