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!

Dank DeLong joined WHIPLASH in 2010.
With his bass style developed out of the 80's Metal/Hardcore/Punk scene in New York, Dank is an undeniable presence on stage. Commanding backing vocals and powerful bass handling highlight his thunderous 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.

WHIPLASH and Will are set to tour throughout Europe to continue thrashing COVID's ass, 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

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 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 pounds for 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.

Thrash 'til Death!
