EP: Oral Obligation
Release Date: April 1, 2016
Genre: Hard Rock
Komodo Wagon is a four-piece rock band from British Columbia and Alberta. Oral Obligation is the second EP from the band, following their 2014 release Citizen Doe. The short but sweet five song EP shows off the band’s love for epic guitar riffs and catchy lyrics. Keep your eye on our website for an upcoming interview we did with the band where they give us details on their writing process and much more.
This guitar laden EP is packed full of solos, catchy lyrics, and just a general sense of rock. It is impossible to sit still listening to these songs. “Cruel World” starts with powerful guitar and will have you moving along in no time. “Prince Charles” focusses more on the vocals than solos, showing off Troy Perlic’s voice which pairs with the backing music perfectly. “Dancers” is the last song on the EP. Following the pattern of the previous songs, the listener is treated to the head banging worthy guitar and drums, closing out the EP with just as much of a bang as it began with.
Overall I was impressed with this EP. I remember listening to Citizen Doe when it came out and personally, Oral Obligation blows it out of the water. If you haven’t listened to this band before, you’re going to want to start and keep your eye on them because they’re definitely going somewhere.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
