Below is our complete Whiplash news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Original Trouble drummer and Retro Grave mainman Jeff "Oly" Olson recently conducted an interview with Brooklyn Militia drummer Joe Cangelsoi (Ex-Whiplash, Kreator) for the "Heady Metal With Jeff Olson" radio show. The two part podcast is now available in its entirety at this location. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.
Cangelosi on recent departure of Whiplash:
"I'm happy I've got a band (Brooklyn Militia) together now. You know I've put so much work into Whiplash and I want to thank all the fans out there. I've met a lot of contacts and so many cool people everywhere. I'll never forget it.
"I'm just going to continue on with my own thing, but it (Whiplash) was a strange situation. From out of the blue I got a call from Tony (Portaro) saying that he's getting Scaglione back in the band. There was no falling out or anything... I figure it's not my choice. Whatever. I'm shocked, but whatever. I see now that Scaglione is out of the band..."
Cangelosi on new band Brooklyn Militia:
"Brooklyn Mitilia was formed about maybe eight months ago and this was at the time that me and Rich Day were still in Whiplash. There were some personal things going on in the band where we couldn't play and we had to wait. Basically, me and Richie were left waiting around and we're like, let's keep playing and do something...
"We hooked up with Paul Bento. Paul is from Carnivore. He's a killer musician. He plays sitar fluently and he did some sitar and guitar work on some of the Type O Negative records... The last Whiplash record was called 'Unborn Again' and we did a Montrose cover called 'Ive Got The Fire' and Paul use to come up on stage and play that with us. We then started writing songs together... so that's how we met and how Brooklyn Militia happened. Now we're in it to win it."
New Jersey based thrash metal veterans Whiplash have announced that they have parted ways with original drummer Tony Scaglione. Replacing him behind the drum stool will be Dan Foord, best known as the drummer from British extreme metal outfit Sikth.
Frontman Tony Portaro commented: "Tony and I were really looking forward to working together once again, but unfortunately there are personal issues in his life that arose which take priority. Fortunately, I was able to contact Dan Foord with the help of Ben Ward of Orange Goblin and Nathan Perrier of Alabaster Suns, Labrat and Capricorns. Dan is well-schooled and plays with exceptional technique. Dank and I are working together feverishly and are very much looking forward to performing live with him in the near future. We are expecting the crowds to share the adrenaline rush as we eagerly anticipate this year's live shows."
New Jersey thrashers Whiplash have issued the following update about canceling all upcoming live shows due to pending legal problems:
"Pending legal issues are hindering Whiplash from continuing any and all performances. We are thankful to all who have followed the band throughout the course of our journey and deeply regret having to make this announcement. The pride and life that you have breathed into us over the years will never be forgotten. No one will ever take that away. Thank you so much."
