    Hosomi's new project sounds Ellegardenish for those missing the band

    I think he just meant the drummer's influence has grown over the course of their albums

    Takashi has been the drummer since the start. I don't know what you mean. It was kind of obvious they'll eventually experiment with math rock with him on the drums

    I like how with each release they go further away from their original sound - they do everything so well.
