While many have imitated and a select few have taken the complicated-core sub-genre of hardcore to new heights, none have matched Coalesce’s ferocity, density or unorthodox nature. From the stunning medical text-inspired packaging to the slower, groove-oriented undercurrent winding its way throughout Coalesce’s trademarked sonic onslaught, Functioning On Impatience is completely without remorse, but thoughtful and methodical in its delivery. Opener “You Can’t Kill Us All” begins with one of the most damaging condemnations/proclamations ever committed to disc, before the music of Coalesce lurches forward. Functioning On Impatience is littered with punishing metallic riffs, coupled with crazed technical runs that throw the proceedings into utter chaos, and is anchored by an utterly distorted bass, peculiar guitar noise and more time changes, tempo shifts and stop-start parts than one can possibly keep up with. Serving as a perfect compliment to the music’s irresistible malevolence, Sean Ingram’s challenging lyrics are delivered with such bile and power that their vehemence may never be replicated. Functioning On Impatience cements Coalesce’s place in hardcore like few albums before it or since, and Second Nature is thrilled to unleash this masterpiece on vinyl once again to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of its release. This limited edition one time 10YRLTD pressing is packaged in a stunning die-cut screen printed jacket and is offered on five different colors of vinyl.
