A metal/hardcore band from Kansas City, Missouri. The members for most of the band's existence were: Sean Ingram (vocals), Jes Stieneger (guitar), James Dewees (drums) and Stacy Hilt (bass). They originally formed in 1994 under the name of Breach, but since a band by that name already existed, they changed it to Coalesce.

They broke up numerous times, but after releasing 012 it looked as thought they had broken up for good. James Dewees went on to play keyboards in The Get Up Kids and some other members, or former members, went on form The Casket Lottery. However, in late 2001, it was announced via their website that they had reformed with a new guitarist and would be touring in March and April of 2002.

Coalesce's sound is ridiculously intense. Drums are pummeled violently, Sean rips his throat up screaming and growling. While it may sound basic, it's not. All of the members are quite competent musicians. James especially gets credit for lots of quick time changes, odd time signatures, and insanely fast tempos. Very intense, and certainly not everyone's cup of tea.

And what's with the album of Led Zeppelin covers? Weird.

T-SQL statement that returns the first non-null expression from among it's arguments.

Let's say you have a table that has three columns that describe the wages of an employee: curHourlyWage, curSalary, and curCommission. Each employee can only have one method of calculating their paycheck. You could do the select statement weeding out the null values in your code OR you could use the coalesce function as follows:

SELECT CAST(COALESCE(curHourlyWage * 40 * 52, curSalary, curCommission * intNumSales) AS money) AS 'Total Salary' FROM wages

This statement would pull the first non-null value found, do any calculations, then return the value as 'Total Salary.' So for a table such as:

Employee | Hourly Wage | Salary | Commission
John Doe      16.35
Sally Mo                                                    75.00
Nate O.                                  82,000

You would get the following returned to you:

Employee | Total Salary
John Doe     34,008 (assuming 40hrs x 52weeks)
Sally Mo        30,000 (assuming 400 sales)
Nate O.         82,000 (assuming I hit the lottery next week and make that donation I want to)
