4 stars Functioning On Impatience is the second offering by the metalcore and mathcore band COALESCE. The album is very short with seven songs and a 20-minute length, but don't let that fool you for the music is very technical and heavy. The band uses odd time signatures and random tempo changes, they are also very aggressive and full of energy. The lyrics are deep and they are more of an essayists point of view rather than a poetic or diary-like point of view. The bass and the guitar also play different parts at certain points, which is good because you can hear the bass better that way. I recommend this album if you are into mathcore or if you are just getting into mathcore, this can be a great start. COALESCE deserve more attention than they get because they were a great and very influential band to metalcore and mathcore.
