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!

WHIPLASH has always attracted talent. Check out these seasoned drummers whenever they may grace the throne at a show near you.

Ron Lipnicki - Whiplash

Ron Lipnicki is a thrash legend in his own right.  Ron’s drum skills need no introduction, coming off a 12-year run with OVERKILL. With his fluid, rapid fire guns, Ronnie obliterates
the kit. 

Fabio Alessandrini

Fabio Alessandrini  
is an italian dynamo who showcases his amazing talents on stages around the world. As witnessed on his 5-year run with Annihilator, Fabio destroys with his killer performance. 

ALESSANDRINI bio
Rider Ripperson

Rider Ripperson is to a drum kit as a pitbull is to a plush toy — as his name implies, he rips it apart. Look no further than Rider for a thrash attack drummer.

Dan Foord - Whiplash

Dan Foord has a mighty, mathematical, and precision strike. A machine-like master of the prog style, "Loord" Foord is the power line behind UK's SykTh and Krokodil. His reign on the Whiplash throne is world reknown.
