There was always a capriciousness to Coalesce which made them a difficult band to follow. No stranger to line-up changes or hiatuses, the band nevertheless have a powerful reputation amongst hardcore fans as group who, along with the likes of Botch, paved the way for the sort of abrasive aggression and grinding time-signature complexity which has since been honed and shined by the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan.
