Splintered was formed by 3 ex-members of Playground . Initially taking up where Playground had left off (more or less), the band gradually built upon the base of primal rhythms and guitar noise, taking the band's sound into more experimental and psychedelic realms of horror.

As well as spawning a multitude of side-projects and other bands, the members have over the years been involved in many promotional ventures, including the legendary Alternative fanzines Grim Humour and Adverse Effect , plus the Fourth Dimension and Dirter record labels.
