The Hiatus

Some might say that since The Hiatus is actually the brain child of Ellegarden's lead singer Takeshi Hosomi that they're not quite new - but split hairs all you want (and then get ready to get kicked down by all the other musicians in the group who would beg to differ) - Trash We'd Love, released earlier this summer, hit #1 on the Oricon charts and gave audiences a reason to get on down and thrash like it was the last concert they'd ever attend.

Intense. Complicated. And some of the most incredible progressions this year had to offer - if they aren't on your top five - I just don't want to know you.
