Whiplash released "Cult Of One" in 1996 on Massacre Records, with Rob Gonzo as vocalist, and Warren Conditi added on guitar. They followed that with "Sit, Stand, Kneel, Prey" in 1997, where Conditi took over vocals and Bob Candella joined on drums. "Thrashback," released in 1998, saw the return of the original line-up of the 3 Tonys.
Following their 6th release, a long hiatus began, during which Whiplash original member Tony Bono passed away in 2002. The band reformed again in 2008 with former drummer Joe Cangelosi, and bassist Rich Day, as Whiplash released "Unborn Again" in 2009 on Pulverized Records.
Tony Portaro continued to lead Whiplash as they began touring in 2011, adding Dank Delong on bass and Dan "Loord" Foord on drums. Focusing on writing, recording and performing shows to new audiences around the world, they independently released the single "Sword Meet Skull" in 2013, anticipating the release of "Old School American Way" (slated for a late 2015 date).
