Shane O’Brien (born 10th February, 1988) from the western suburbs of Melbourne, is the drummer for Australian metal band I Killed The Prom Queen as well as chaotic mathcore band Jack The Stripper.
Starting drums at the age of 16, under the tuition of drumming icon Frank & Damian Corniola at Drumtek Music, he has progressed in leaps and bounds behind the kit. Known for his unique powerfully energetic, sometimes even possessed live performance and versatile playing, it’s no surprise that these days he spends most of his time touring the globe and doing session work.
Over the past few years Shane has had the chance to learn from such drumming greats as Dom Famularo, Virgil Donati, Darren Farrugia, Rick Latham, Thomas Lang, as well as a steady study regime with Damian Corniola. !
