Fueled - _In the House of the Enemy_
(Energy Records, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (2 out of 10)
Crap. From the opening number, "Reconstricted", I knew I was in for a beating - I really wanted this to end. Managing to mix techno (samples), metal, and hardcore with a slight groove, California four-piece Fueled really seem to be lacking something in their 10-song debut for Energy Records. There really is no identity to their music, as the music is just layered on thick with lots of samples and monotonous guitar riffs. And what's with the vocals? They sound so stale and bland. Sounding a lot like a second (or even third) rate metal/techno/hardcore hybrid band, Fueled's sound needs a lot of work before they will see any kind of success. I'm just glad Energy Records has some better bands like Hanzel Und Gretyl and Heavy Water Factory waiting in the wings.
