Whiplash - Sign With Pulverised Records

Pulverised Records press release

Reactivated New Jersey metallers Whiplash have inked a worldwide deal with Pulverised Records. The band will enter the studio in early March to begin recording its sixth album, "Unborn Again", with guitarist/vocalist Tony Portaro handling the production duties. Co-producing the effort will be Harris Johns, who has previously worked with Coroner, Helloween, Kreator, Sepultura, Sodom and Voivod, among many others. The band will also document the full recording session and edit the footage into a free bonus DVD.

Commented Portaro: "We are thrilled to be working with Calvin and everyone at Pulverised Records. Their enthusiasm surrounding the "Unborn Again" project is unmatched by any of the labels that we have worked with in the past. It will also be my pleasure to work side by side with the Harris Johns and although the actual recording of "Unborn Again" will not begin until March of 2009, we are eagerly anticipating mixing and mastering with him at Spiderhouse in April."

Added Pulverised label manager Calvin: "We are more than just honored to have the legendary Whiplash step foot into the Pulverised roster, and pre-production works have already commenced for the new album titled "Unborn Again". The band who once gave you such classics like the 1985 maiden album "Power And Pain", the crushing "Ticket To Mayhem" and the innovative 1990 release "Insult To Injury" are back to set the hungry thrash maniacs on rampage!"

Whiplash will release a 25th-anniversary DVD in late 2009 entitled "25 Years Of Thrash". According to the group, the disc will feature "true stories that cover the band's history with Roadrunner Records and beyond, 1985-1990, "Power And Pain", "Ticket To Mayhem", "Insult To Injury"; The Massacre years, 1996-1998, "Cult Of One", "Sit Stand Kneel Prey"; "Thrashback"." It will also include rare concert footage, photos, interviews, backstage footage and much more. "25 Years Of Thrash" will also "take you back in time, hands on the mixing board in very raw setting as the band shares their experiences of the writing and recording of some of the greatest Whiplash albums released to date."

Portaro remained the pillar of the band while the lineup went through many changes over the course of their six full-length CDs, including "Cult Of One" in 1996 and "Sit Stand Kneel Prey" in 1997. During that time, drummer Joe Cangelosi supplied the drumming on "Cause For Conflict" for Germany's premier thrash band Kreator, which was released in 1995. Portaro handled the guitar work for Billy Milano's M.O.D. on a European tour in early 1998 with drummer Tony Scaglione, inviting the return of the original Whiplash lineup for a reunion CD entitled "Thrashback".
