I don't know too much about the history of Hiatus after 1992. If anyone has some more info please mail it to me.

Hiatus formed in May 89, at this time the line up was Phill, Ben, Raf and Phil. They played in a Doom/Discharge/E.N.T. style and recorded a rehersal demo called "The Frightening Men Story". In May 90 they put out their second rehersal demo called "In My Mind" and soon after Wills joined them on bass.

The band went into the studio and recorded a set of songs which were released on two 7"'s and various compilations. Their first 7" "I don't scare easily but..." was released on the French label Urban Alert rec. and had a second pressing on Nabate/Mother Peace rec. A split 7" with RMR from Japan called "Severe Existence" was Hiatus' second 7" and was released on the Japanese label MCR Co.

Phil and Raf left and some new members joined: Azill on guitars and vocals and for a short time Vrokker and Leffe from Chronic Disease. During August 91 Hiatus toured the U.S.A and Canada with The Wurst from Rhode Island and played with bands like Rorschach, and Born Against. In November 1991 they recorded another studio session. From this recording the "Way Of Doom" 7" and Hiatus/Embittered 7" were released in 1992. In February 1992 Hiatus toured Europe with No Security from Sweden, also in 1992 they toured the UK with Mushroom Attack from Holland.

In 1993 their "From Resignation ... To Revolt" LP was released on Sound Pollution. Hiatus also toured Europe and Eastern Europe that year. In early '94 the Doom/Hiatus 7" was released. In February 1995 they recorded their "El sueno de la razon produce monstruos" LP. In June '95 they toured the USA and Canada again. A self titled mini LP was released on Skuld Releases/Profane Existance in 1996, the songs on it showed a big progression from their earlier releases with elements of modern hardcore being added to their crustpunk sound. Azill and Willy from Hiatus also play in Unhinged who have a 7" and LP out on Nabate.
