Whiplash started in New Jersey back in 1984 and to this very day they are still for some reason criminally underrated, although their blend of speed and thrash metal is equally influential with Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth. Whiplash plays it´s music at breakneck speed and flavors it with catchy riffs and Tony Portaro´s harsh vocals.

"Messages In Blood" includes the band´s 1984 "Thunderstruck" demo, the 1985 demo "Looking Death In The Face" and two different live shows from 1985.
