Splinter biography
Splinter is a rock band from Holland and consists of 5 ambitious musicians: Ewout Ongering on vocals, Didier Kerckhoff on guitar and vocals, Menno Broer van Dijk on Synths, Hammond and Keyboards, vocals, Berry Vink on drums and vocals and Marcel Everts on bass guitar, bass pedals and vocals.

Although they are close friends, each band member has a different musical background. Therefore the music of the group is often described in reviews as 'a new style on its own'. Splinter started out writing material in the 'progrock' style. Even though magazines in this genre were very enthusiastic, the band unconsciously changed and headed for a more commercial style of writing. The music became less complicated and more sensitive, without becoming simple. The lyrics of Splinter often describe deep inner feelings we all have in daily life.

Mothers' Finest guitarist John Hayes produced Splinters first demo 'Reflections' (released in 2004) which was received with extremely positive acclaim in magazines like Oor, Aardschok, Background Magazine and iOpages, to name just a few. Also, the band went on tour in the Dutch club circuit as support act for Hayes' group Maxima.

In 2005 they recorded most of their repertoire for the unofficial release 'The Devil's Jigsaw'. Again, critics were extremely positive about this so called 'collection of demo songs'. Later that year, the band played a gig as support act for the progressive 'supergroup' Karmakanic, featuring former Yngwie Malmsteen-vocalist Goran Edman, and did a short tour with the Swedish band The Flower Kings. As a result the band gained a solid fan base.

The most important step was taken when producer Jonas Reingold suggested to record their debut album with him.

4 stars Splinter needed 3 years to come with a second album, and I must tell you worth the time waiting, another excellent album by this discrete and unknown band. A real delight and pleasent compositions, great skilss , easy playing made from this album another worthing investment for sure. Each piece show Splinter in a great form, kinda same with the first one in manner of composing, nice interludes between musicians. Opening track Good by, Bio engine are great examples of how great this band is and in same time very unknown to larger public. Realy a shame because , they areat least with one head above neo prog bands from today. They also incorporates very well some prog metal elements, but without that specific metal atmosphere. Another great album that must be discovered or re discovered by many listners. 4 stars gain, recommended both album, they are a abnd to watch in the future.

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Splinter is a duth neo prog band with two albums relesed so far. Their first album was released in 2004 named devil's jigsaw and is a fine album with a lot to offer. I like very much how easy they play on entire album, very smooth aproach from mellow to a more metalized parts. Splinter is influnce mainly by Dream Theater but aswell some Arena or Iq moments are present, anyway they have a very american sound, not band in the end , realy. Complex compostions, like the opening track The Devil's Advocate , 11 min of the highest calibre, solid musicianship and tight arrangements, made from this album a real succes and a great debute. The neo prog elements are so well melted in more rogher ones, not far from prog metal in some parts, that in the end is entirely pleasent journey to the listner. very strong is besides the voice of Ron Hoekstra the dueling between keybords and guitar, inventive and intristing in same time. I will give to this first album 4 stars, well done , played and produce, in places remind me of Dream Theater or Hourglass another american band from this field.

SPLINTER - Dreamers : Special Edition CD with bonus DVD

This is a young Dutch progrock formation that has released 3 demo CD's since 2002, in 2005 they joined The Flower Kings as a support-act and last year (2007) Splinter delivered their first studio album entitled Dreamers.

Listening to Dreamers I am delighted about the skills of the musicians, the modern and professional sound and the elements dynamics and adventure in their music. The first track (how funny) Goodbey showcases Splinter their compositional skills and their captivating progressive sound: lots of shifting moods, great work on guitar (including a wah-wah drenched guitar solo), a surprising break with fluent piano and strong vocals and flowing bass solo, accompanied by piano, what a calling card by Splinter! The long composition Reflections (four parts, running time almost 15 minutes) contains many interesting musical ideas and variety like the acoustic guitar runs and piano sound in Part 1 - Dreamer, exciting guitar riffs and fat synthesizer flights in the final part of Part 2 - The Dream, varied keyboards and moving guitar in Part 3 - REM and a fiery, very compelling guitar solo in Part 4 - Wake Up. The alternating track Anthony's Songs is also a musical adventure, from propulsive guitar riffs and jazzy piano to flute-Mellotron (like Strawberrry Fields Forever by The Beatles), warm acoustic guitar runs and howling electric guitar, wonderful! The long final song The Devil's Advocate (3 parts) contains lots of changing climates, a wide range of vintage keyboards (Hammond organ, Fender Rhodes elektric piano and a fluit- and viool- Mellotron duet) and a compelling closing section with a strong build-up and howling, wah-wah drenched guitar, accompanied by lush Hammond organ. In my final words about this excellent album I have to give a big hand to the lead vocals by Ewout Ongering.

This Special Edition version contains a bonus DVD on which we can find items like live footage, a photo shoot, a biography and reviews. For a few euros more this is an interesting bonus DVD. And don't forget to visit the Splinter website: www.splinteronline.com .

Review by Martynmmp

— First review of this album —
4 stars My first contact with the splinter-sound from a cd (heard them live before that)! Think originally this cd was meant as a demo! but the interest in Splinter based on the first two songs "twist of fate" and "reflections" on this cd was that promising that this cd shortly can be seen as a collector's item.... i'm sure of it. The cd never left my cd-player! I'm not a good reviewer but simply say... take your change and by this first real splinteralbum before it is too late.
