Based out of Jersey, this 4-piece hard rock/ metal band has something to say and wants as many listeners to hear it. Their debut album ASHES DIVIDE starts off with their second single RECKONING, where lead singer and founder DAVE INCOGNITO really uses his voice to capture the audience. It’s not like most rock bands out there, the vocals overpower the instrumentals, but in a good way, it does have an abrupt end to the song that kind of through me off. TROOP on drums, has a melodic feel; him and PRUSSACK on guitar seem to be connected mentally with how in-sync they are together in THIS PRESENT. MY DYING SOUL really gets into the metal aspects with rocking bass, hard hitting drums, electric guitar and scratchy vocals, one of my favorites.
I had the chance to ask Dave Incognito a few questions about their album and future plans, please enjoy.
SO HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE OUT WITH SOME BIGGER NAMED BANDS? We at INCOGNITO THEORY are honored to share the stage with all these great bands. they been paving the way for years for up and coming artists like us. We look forward to sharing the stage with everyone and anyone and we thank you all.
YOUR BIO SAYS THAT YOU WRITE MUSIC FOR YOUR FANS, HOWEVER I HAVE RECENTLY SEEN A LOT OF ROCK BANDS GO TOWARDS THIS AVENUE. WHAT MAKES YOUR MUSIC DIFFERENT? I Feel personally INCOGNITO THEORY, takes a no-frills approach by mixing Hard Rock, with an explosive underline of Metal and a hint of soul that makes for a musical cocktail that goes down smooth like Whiskey. I also feel we offer not only a fresh take on the Hard rock and the Metal scene, but also bring high-energy and unrelenting chaos to the stage.
THIS PRESENT IS A BIT DIFFERENT FROM MOST OF YOUR ALBUM, WHERE DID THIS SONG COME FROM? Why thank you we dare to be different, this song is very dear to my heart it was written for my best friend and guitarists mom who passed away she was an amazing person a big supporter of what her son and I am doing and she was like my second mom not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her dearly. Our song THIS PRESENT is a celebration of her life and who she was to me and her family.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF, AS A BAND, AND AS INDIVIDUALS IN THE FUTURE? Skies the limit. We love music, we love to play, we love to write and where ever this takes us; we will be ready! Music is life.
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO FORM THIS PARTICULAR BAND? INCOGNITO THEORY allows us to be versatile and step out of the box. it’s a form of therapy for all of us; no boundaries just a good kick ass time with the Band Of Brothers who care and believe in what we are doing.
TELL US SOMETHING THAT NO ONE HAS THOUGHT TO ASK YOU, THAT YOU WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW? INCOGNITO THEORY is a brotherhood; we stand and unite through music! We love what we do and we will give nothing less than 110% no cutting corners, we will die trying and we always Dream Big and live The Life.
HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT DOING CHARITY/BENEFIT SHOWS WITH OTHER LOCAL BANDS? WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO PERFORM WITH AND WHAT ORGANIZATION? We have done many benefits and we will do whatever and go wherever to support any cause. As for local bands there are so many friends we have played with and have mad respect for! We are all in this together.
