A promising band from the Midwest, Fictional Prison's
is an excellent slice of technical power metal, with
just a hint of progressive metal in places.
A logical comparison might be
as the songwriting style is in the same arena and Caine's
vocals are similar in style to those of the mighty Warrell Dane,
mixing power and the occasional high-pitched yelp to good effect.
One good thing about the album is that it doesn't fall into the
"every song sounds the same" category like a lot of albums
(particularly debuts) do.
The band was reported in a state of flux soon after the album's
release, with several lineup changes in the works, but with no
word from the band in years, they are presumed to have broken up.
