I am not sure why this is coming up under the OX EP. I did not write the review here, but under the full-length. Something is wrong with Amazon’s review thing-a-ma-jigger.
It seems like a lifetime ago when 012: Revolution in Just Listening, a masterpiece of a swan-song, was unleashed on the unsuspecting public. Rumors of the bands demise prior to the release were swirling and we were greeted with ‘What Happens on the Road Always Comes Home’. Ten years have passed and we have been blessed with another release from hardcore juggernauts Coalesce. There is no other band in music that can make a song that is nearly impossible to tap your foot to, but is still so addicting.
With their new release, OX, we get more of the expected, the tried and true Coalesce. But they have thrown several surprises in to the mix including a swagger of a country song and less distortion on Jess’ guitar. All in all this is a fabulous release and a breath of fresh air in a hardcore/metal scene that seems to have an inbred sound as of late.
Check it out and get ready for even more music when the OX EP is released later this year.
