WHIPLASH is a classic american Thrash Metal band formed in the year 1984 in Passaic, New Jersey. The original power trio line-up was comprised of the three Tonys: Tony Portaro (guitar and vocals) Tony Scaglione (drums) and Tony Bono (bass). They appeared on the "Speed Metal Hell" compilation from NEW RENAISSANCE RECORDS, USA in 1985 with the track "Thrash Till Death" after which they signed with ROADRUNNER RECORDS. Their first album "Power And Pain" is a blast: fast, crushing and really powerful US Eighties Thrash Metal with totally fucked up vocals. This music is totally in the vein of BLOOD FEAST, EXODUS, DARK ANGEL, DESTRUCTION, ... , and with that sound the band was able to attract a lot of fans from all over the world.
The original pressing of the classic album "Power And Pain" was released in the year 1986 on ROADRUNNER RECORDS from The Netherlands.
