Incognito Theory - Incognito Theory 

Although they’ve been around since 2009 and their new self-titled EP is their third release, somehow New Jersey’s Incognito Theory has flown under my radar.  That has all changed with their new self-titled EP, which is one of those releases that will have you backtracking to check out what else you’ve been missing. Strongly reminiscent of Zakk Wylde in  southern rock mode, the EP is definitely heavy, full of thick crunchy guitars with some killer solos (check out “Smokin’ Gun”), strong melodies, a rock solid rhythm section all topped with Dave Incognito’s powerful vocals.  They also manage to keep things fresh with enough diversity from track to track, while keeping the root of their sound in place.  While there’s not a bad cut in the bunch, highlights include “Fired Up”, “Smokin’ Gun” and “Set It Off”.
