SuSupernova Vol. 01 is an impressive, home-recorded album that showcases Splitstar’s versatility, featuring a mix of multiple different genres. The album was produced and mixed by the Singer/Songwriter of the band Donny J while also including the rest of the band members’ writing and recording.
While the album would fall under alternative rock/metal, there's a wide variety of different genres blended in together, including nu-metal, hard rock, and some grunge. Each song on the album delves into various emotional realms, evoking feelings of introspection, isolation, and adrenaline-pumping excitement.
Parasite One of the songs from Splitstar’s debut album “Parasite” talks about how some people can be compared to parasites, and how difficult it is to get rid of them. These parasites wish the worst on their enemies, yet copy their every move, while simultaneously putting everyone in danger with crazy fantasies. “Parasite” is a mix of metal and post-hardcore making it a fun and energetic song to listen to and vibe to.
