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.

The band was honored to be the hand-picked winners of the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands and play Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival in 2011. The band was also hand-picked to play the Sumerian Records (Headbang for the Highway Battle of the Bands) stage at Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival 2014.

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, lays 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 KoRn, Asking Alexandria, Trivium, Suicide Silence, Mushroomhead, Miss May I, Cannibal Corpse, Body Count ft. Ice-T, Veil of Maya, Emmure, Upon a Burning Body, Texas Hippie Coalition, Ill Nino, Darkest Hour, Sevendust, 10 Years, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Drowning Pool, Three Days Grace, Wretched, Escape the Fate, Seether, Taproot, Nonpoint, 40 Below Summer, Sick Puppies, Lacuna Coil, Hed PE, Smile Empty Soul, CKY, Saving Abel, and Powerman 5000.
