Tony Portaro, founding member of WHIPLASH, leads a lineup that delivers metal old-school style. Portaro's unique vocals and thrashing riffs keep heads banging, while his intricate, soaring leads punctuate his songwriting with his masterful performance.
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!
WHIPLASH has always attracted talent. Check out these seasoned drummers whenever they may grace the throne at a show near you.
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.
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.
Rider Ripperson is to a drum kit as a pitbull is to a plush toy — as his name implies, he tears it apart. Look no further than him for a thrash drummer when you need one.
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.
