Coalesce, from Kansas City (Missouri), moved the violence in hardcore one notch up with the explosive EP 002 (Earache, 1996). Sean Ingram (vocals) screams like a mouse, guitars roar devastating riffs, drums beat like jackhammers. Give Them Rope (Edison, 1997) ranks amongst the most terrifying musical products ever.

After a Led Zeppelin tribute album, 0:12 Revolution In Just Listening (Relapse, 1999) matched that intensity although in a more emotional and less savage vein.

Coalesce's There Is Nothing New Under The Sun (Hydra Head, 1999) was a cover album.

After breaking up in 1999, Coalesce released the five-song EP A Safe Place (2000) and the mini-album Functioning on Impatienc (2002).

Drummer James DeWees (who had replaced the original drummer in 1998) went on to join the Get Up Kids.

The Casket Lottery, that was born from the ashes of Coalesce, played trivial emo-pop.

Ox (Relapse, 2009), the first album in ten years, repeats the old formula (notably In My Wake For My Own) and introduces some timid experiments (clean vocals in The Comedian In Question, slide guitar in Wild Ox Moan).
