It would be hard to say that a band from the Dallas/Fort Worth area was not influenced somewhat by Pantera, and Splinter is no different. The musical influences of the band are far reaching into the history of metal however. From Sabbath to Alice in Chains, to Metallica and Godsmack, Splinter combines the drive and energy of their influences to harvest their creative minds.
In April 2005, Splinter released a five song EP titled End of Days. They have since embarked on a feverish pace to get their music out to the crowds and be heard, playing in venues across Texas and Oklahoma, with dates in Arkansas, Tennessee, and Louisiana pending. In December 2005, they released a live six song EP, Unleash the Power with four previously unrecorded songs. They will be entering the studio in May 2006, while still touring, to record their first full length album with a scheduled release date of July 2006. As before, they will continue to tour to support the new album and winning over fans one city at a time!!!!
