‘Liam currently plays for the Melbourne-based Deathcore band Blight. 

Growing up in the country town of Launceston, Tasmania, Liam started drumming in 2008. Quickly growing a passion for rock & metal music, he started listening to bands such as Slipknot, Linkin Park, and Rise Against.  

Having played mainly in school bands, Liam moved to Melbourne in 2016 to study a Bachelor of Music Performance at The Australian Institute of Music, graduating in 2018. It wasn’t until this time that Liam grew a love for progressive metal/djent and deathcore, exploring bands/artists such as Shadow of Intent, Gojira, Meshuggah, and Periphery.

 

Liam and Blight have shared the stage with bands such as Distentomb, Defeated Sanity, Zeolite, Diamond Construct, and many more. Since the band finalized its lineup and started playing live shows in 2018, Blight have released two EPs; Night Terrors in 2019, and Death Knows in 2021.

 

With many differentiating influences throughout

the it’s members, Blight take a more progressive approach to the Deathcore genre. The band continues to write music and plan to release a full-length

album in the future.’
