Will Winton joined forces with WHIPLASH in 2022,  kicking ass in an incredible, short-notice, fill-in performance in Finland, following the long-awaited rescheduling of COVID-cancelled shows.

Will then joined the band for a run of shows in Europe, including MTV's Headbangers' Ball tour. Being a frontman for his own band, Thanatotic Desire, Will brings a superstar performance to WHIPLASH — super hero that he is!

GOT DRUMS?

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

Ron Lipnicki - Whiplash

Charlie Zeleny - Whiplash

Charlie Z is pure dynamite.

He's a pro NYC drummer in hot demand, and when he teams up with Whiplash he  is unstoppable. CZ will never let you down, and will never let you forget him. Check out this robot drummer from the future.

James DeMaria - Whiplash

James DeMaria hits hard. He hits fast. This road warrior's attitude is indestructible. 
KongFoo Jim toured with Heathen & Toxik. He's always great to have around when you need a piece of metal.

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.
