Extreme Masochist

Coma Beach, the enigmatic punk rock powerhouse, is back again! Making a powerful return in 2024, this electrifying five-piece rock band hailing from the heart of Germany in Würzburg comes to Bad Wolf Records to gift us one of their finest tracks from their discographic collection, 'Extreme Masochist,' a re-release of its original counterpart from their thematic album “The Scapegoat’s Agony”. Showcasing once again their raw and unfiltered energy, delving into an intricate narrative revolving around the story of the ‘Unnamed Antihero’.

Wait… what? An Antihero? We know everyone here is already familiar with Coma Beach’s ability to fuse incredible storytelling with remarkable rock anthems, since we had the pleasure of experiencing their banger “Another Song” on Bad Wolf Radio during October 2023. But for those who don’t know, Coma Beach is doing much more than just making music here. Let’s take a walk, shall we?

“Extreme Masochist” is the 9th track of a bigger story called “The Scapegoat's Agony,” which stands as the band’s incredible artistic proposal for their first album. Taking inspiration from the play “Waiting for Godot” by the Irish playwright and novelist Samuel Beckett, the album delves into human existence itself, from a critical and thought-provoking standpoint. In this way, Coma Beach's artistic approach is a crucial piece to fully understand the portrayal of the anti-hero depicted in Beckett’s work.

Led by the dynamic vocals of B. Kafka and driven by the blistering guitar riffs of Captain A. Fear, the story of “Extreme Masochist” delves deep into the emotional labyrinth of the human condition, making it one of their standout tracks not only due to its intriguing theme but also because of their energetic sound. Fast punk drum fills, perfectly executed by M. Lecter, in company with the deep, mind-blowing bass presence of U. Terror, will definitely leave you wanting more. (Listen to the full album; you will thank us later)

With electrifying guitar riffs where Ben manages to slice through the air with striking lead licks backed by Alex's powerful drum sections and anchored by Micha's resonant bass lines, "What You Deny" transports listeners on a journey through desire and longing. Manu's vocals, raw and with his characteristic energy, deliver thought-provoking and relatable lyrics, capturing the essence of chasing love's elusive dreams.
Released on January 26, 2024, this track not only showcases VOST's impeccable production level but also their ability to craft a sound that resonates deeply with audiences. The accompanying music video, available on YouTube, adds a visual dimension to the band's narrative, further immersing viewers in their world of passion, determination.
