Fictional Prison - _Dream Killer_
(Independent, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (3 out of 10)
Holy bizarreness, Batman! I have to tell you CoC readers, it had been a long time since a record (indie or major label) had really turned my stomach and thrown me for a loop. Coming across the CD for review, I was unsure of what to expect, but from having done this for so long and seeing the layout, song titles and images, I was able to conclude that Fictional Prison would be some kind of progressive rock band. I was somewhat close. This Ohio band plays a really bizarre mixture of progressive rock, hard rock and heavy metal, all tossed into a smorgasbord of sounds and more emotional ups and downs that my grandmother on medication. Think Rush meets Queensryche meets Savatage meets King Diamond and throw in a huge helping of "look what I can play" guitar riffs. Too weird for me to take in. I also have a problem with the singer -- front man Caine gets a little too theatrical for me at times as the disc goes on and that was a total turn off. This isn't a dream, more like a nightmare.
