Originally named Breach, the Kansas City band that would be Coalesce truly came to fruition in mid-1994 when vocalist Sean Ingram joined the existing line-up of Jes Steineger (guitar), Stacey Hilt (bass), and James Redd (drums). With a hardcore foundation, the band began branch out and experiment to develop a unique sound consisting of discordant guitar riffs, grooves, off-time beats and tempo changes. Their first release would be a 2-song 7" simply entitled '001' on Chapter Records. Growing popularity and constant touring resulted in numerous compilations, cover songs, seven-inches, CDEPs, and full-lengths with the likes of Earache Records, Second Nature Recordings, Hydrahead Records, and Relapse Records. The final incarnation of Coalesce, composed of Ingram, Steineger, Nathan Ellis (bass), and James DeWees (drums), pushed the boundaries of hardcore and metal with their gifted musicianship, musical complexity, raw aggression, and intelligent lyrics. After disbanding at the time of their 1999 release on Relapse Records, '0:12 A Revolution in Just Listening,' the band regrouped in late 2001. hide

OHhhhhhhhhhhh man it's coalesce. These guys are f*cking HEAVY man. It's like they can't even play in 4/4 they're so dark and mysterious and vague. And they played like and once they got in a fight and threw an entire drumkit onto a handcapped girl in Wilkes Baree and SHE DIED. HARDCORE. Then they got back together to play The People's Court. Is that one song on give them rope about abortion? nobody will ever know
