Fruit of the Original Sin is a Dutch/German alternative rock group.
The band combines fuzz guitar rock and electronic sounds to create raw emotional music with loads of energy. The band released its third album ‘The Black Lodge’.
It got enthusiastically received and higly reviewed.
Dutch leading magazine ‘Music Maker’ gave the album 4 out of 5 stars and wrote: “With ‘The Black Lodge’ Fruit of the Original Sin remind us how exciting industrial rock can be instead.


Fruit of the Original Sin was formed in 2006 by singer/guitarist and songwriter Freek Philippi, and since 2013 is completed by Thomas Merkle on keyboards, André Kaysers on bass and Florian Metz on drums. Being a mix of dutch and german musicians, the band fittingly rehearses in a disused border station right on the frontier – as if it was to support their crossing of borders between musical genres: the band mixes elements of alternative rock, grunge, industrial and shoegaze into “a clear sound of its own” (‘Lust for Life’ magazine). This unique blend could easily be coming from Walter White’s lab: think of a mixture of emotional vocals, ripping fuzz guitars, grinding electronics, pumping bass and impulsive drums, and you’ll get a hint of what’s coming at you. German ‘Gitarre & Bass’ magazine made the band ‘Act of the Month’, saying: “This absolutely bombastic mix between rough Stoner rock, Industrial and influences from Progressive comes spot-on – and is great, dark rock cinema which can have a long-lasting and intense effect in your head. Really very well done!”

Fruit of the Original Sin played over 80 gigs in clubs and festivals in England, Wales, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Slowakia, Poland, Hungary, Romania and Croatia.
