Thrash 'Til Death!  

WHIPLASH exploded onto the U.S. metal scene in 1984, branding the East Coast with its original thrash sound. The debut album, "Power And Pain," claims its place in the halls of thrash metal. WHIPLASH continues to bring old school thrash to a new generation of metalheads — THRASH 'TIL DEATH!
