Shock, chaos, pain, rage and isolation: These are the thematic cornerstones of COMA BEACH’s music. The very title of their debut album, "The Scapegoat's Agony", an ominous-sounding allusion to Samuel Beckett's literary works, already bears the haunting promise of a highly unusual experience. Lurking behind it all, there is a clear-eyed artistic vision rather than a generic punk rock album…
Coma Beach's musical influences range from Sex Pistols, Ramones, Hüsker Dü, Joy Division, The Cure, The Jesus and Mary Chain to Guns N' Roses, Therapy? and Bad Religion, with their songs frequently straddling the line between punk rock and alternative rock.
The band's English lyrics draw on numerous themes and motifs from various authors, such as the existentialist view of the world's utter meaninglessness, as portrayed in Samuel Beckett's plays and novels; the satirical-sarcastic approach to the absurdities of human existence, as employed in Douglas Adams's narratives; the often tragic and - not infrequently - self-inflicted conflicts that countless characters have to suffer through in William Shakespeare's plays; or Arthur Schopenhauer's system of a radical metaphysical pessimism.
