2015 was a great year for us. We’ve released a new album and made a new videoclip.
And we’ve met A LOT of new people in the 9 different countries we’ve played last year!
Let’s see if we can top that this year!

We open the new year with the cool news that our album ‘The Black Lodge’ is nominated for ‘Best Album 2015’ at the 3Voor12/Gelderland Awards.

2015 (Part 1)

Hi folks,

As the end of the year approaches we look back at some of the highlights of 2015!

Of course, for us, the biggest highlight was the release of our 3rd album ‘The Black Lodge’ and the positive reactions it got!

FotOS-TheBlackLodge_CD_Front

“There’s a crosshair on your head and with The Black Lodge the Fruits are bound to make a splatter! Holy hell, what growth and what power. They near perfection to such an amazing degree that the attempt in itself becomes perfect.”
Joop Konraad over The Black Lodge op Stoner Hive 4/5

“De sound staat er van meet af aan” “Bij slaap problemen, probeer de laatste Marilyn Manson of Nine Inch Nails eens, Fruit of the Original Sin herinnert er met The Black Lodge aan hoe opwindend industrial rock kan zijn.”
Bastiaan Teunter over The Black Lodge in de MusicMaker van juni 2015 4/5

“Dieser absolut bombastische Mix zwischen Stoner-Rock, Industrial und Progressive-Einflussen kommt auf den Punkt. -und ist grosses dusteres Rock-Kino, das lange und intensiv im kopf nachwirken kann. Wirklich sehr gut gelungen!” BAND OF THE MONTH
Gitarre und Bass magazine (June 2015) over The Black Lodge

“Gelukkig heeft de band duidelijk een eigen sound” “(Kali) Een opener die zoveel in zich heeft dat je bang bent dat de rest van de plaat gaat tegenvallen, maar dan begint Anxiety met zijn industriele en stampende bas en weet je dat het goed komt. De overige 8 nummers blijken allen even sterk, vol geweldige gitaren en gestoord drumwerk.”
Rene van Duijnhoven over The Black Lodge in Lust For Life magazine van juni 2015 4/5

“Heftige Fuzzy-Riffs und ab und zu auch kratzende Elektronik, verbunden mit der bereits bekannten musikalischen Qualität der Band, ergeben ein insgesamt sehr rundes und interessantes Album mit großer Ohrwurm-Gefahr.”
Plattenclub.de over The Black Lodge

“Brute gitaar-riffs, de afwisseling van sterke vocalen en een duw naar grotere hoogten.
Het beste voorbeeld hiervan is de song Sophia, die kan wedijveren met het betere werk van bijvoorbeeld Filter” “Hey man, nice job!”
Rene Vanes over The Black Lodge in Aardschok magazine, nr 6 Juni 2015

“De derde worp van Fruit Of The Original Sin is een plaat waarop werkelijk alles klopt; van de heftige opener Kali tot de ingetogen afsluiter Solace is de muziek op alle fronten – liederen, teksten, productie, emotie, attitude, dynamiek, variatie – dik in orde. ‘The Black Lodge’ kent geen minpunten en veel hoogtepunten. Klasse.”
Op Duvel over The Black Lodge

“Abrimos un pequeño paréntesis para descongestionar en cierta medida esa avalancha de voces y sonidos que nos llegan del desierto. El ultimo álbum de la banda holandesa puede ser una buena excusa para ello, su rock alternativo es enérgico, directo y visceral. Su relevancia sonica admite en su inventario unas leves pinceladas electronicas, algunos matices rememorando el post grunge de finales de los 90’s y el resto acaba siendo pura potencia.”
Microminusculo over The Black Lodge

“Ist nicht ganz so creepy, wie die Twin Peaks Referenz des Albumtitels vielleicht vermuten lässt, überzeugt aber absolut, was Songwriting und Produktion angeht.”
“Powergitarren. Insgesamt eine ausgewogene Mischung von atmosphärischen Passagen, guten Hooklines und einprägsamen Melodien. Man bleibt meist unter der Vier-Minuten-Marke und so ist der Release äußerst gut zugänglich und die Band kommt absolut auf den Punkt.”
With Love over The Black Lodge
