If any band has constantly kept its followers guessing, it is Coalesce. Musically at least, the band has been fairly consistent, churning out three albums of low-end math/sludge that never really failed to impress. It was then that they embarked on the kind of on/off hiatus that had fans scratching their collective heads in confusion. And now, a whole decade after last effort ‘0:12 Revolution In Just Listening’ was released, they are back with ‘Ox’, a slower, sludgeier, downright dirtier affair. ‘Designed To Break A Man’, for instance, showcases Southern-fried, bluesy, bass-heavy riffs aplenty, rather like Pantera on Valium. Pump up the drone!
