Also at age 16, Merkules was brutally attacked after a studio session. The scars left on his face from the machete and baseball bat attack served as an inspiration for his album, Scars, released in April 2015.[2]

In addition Merkules' most recent album debuted at #2 on the main iTunes chart across all genres in Canada. Merkules has rocked over 500 high energy performances across North America and Europe, and is not going to slow down anytime soon. His raw talent, wit, and genuine humbleness has captivated a fan base that is growing by the thousands every day.
