Sponsored by Jägermeister, and voted Best Hardcore/Metal Act 2012, 2013, & 2014 (Pulse Mag's Worcester Music Awards), Thurkills Vision is a 5-piece melodic, metal outfit hailing from Lowell, Massachusetts. Formed in 2006, the group is led by the fierce and equally alluring voice of singer, Yamil Melendez; it combines influences of metal, alternative, and rock to create a hybrid sound. The hard hitting rhythm section featuring David Malave on drums and bassist, Matt Frotten lay the foundation for guitarists, Eric Williams and Bobby Rourke, who drive the band with their aggressive, thrash-inspired playing. Along with the auditory assault that is their music, the band also brings to the table a high-intensity live show, which has become a staple for the group. Since forming, the band has played shows all over the New England area, sharing the stage with national touring acts such as Sevendust, 10 Years, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Drowning Pool, Three Days Grace, Escape the Fate, Seether, Taproot, Nonpoint, Hed PE, Smile Empty Soul, CKY, 40 Below Summer, and Powerman 5000, to name a few. The band was honored to be the hand-picked winners of the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands and play the Rockstar UPROAR Festival in August, 2011.
