From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars The years since 2000 proved to be a very fruitful period for progressive rock and I am almost totally convinced that many contemporary bands that combine pop, rock, indie, jazz, avant garde and hard rock are in many cases, more progressive than some so-called neo-prog acts. Some of today's groups, even if they do produce good albums, some times tend to be a good substitute if you wished Genesis or Yes had recorded more albums than they actually did (which we do!!). "Heavy metal fruit" is an amalgam of art, hard and stoner rock, indie, jazz and psychedelia. Among other great scandinavian bands that I've recently discovered (Uzva, Manogurgeil, Jaga Jazzist) Motorpsycho seem to know exactly how they want to sound by blending vintage and modern rock sounds. There are long passages that give the impression that these guys let themselves loose but actually these are flowing themes over really tight and precise rhythm sections. Their sound is characteristic and the excellent production emphasizes the feeling of it all. If I had to give some references in relation to other bands, I would dare to say that there are some dispersed vague similarities with Bigelf or Causa Sui, but "Heavy metal fruit" is a unique album of its own! Long live today!
