Ville Laihiala (born June 13, 1973 in Oulu, Finland) is the current vocalist and guitarist of the Finnish Gothic metal group, Poisonblack. He was also the frontman for Sentenced from 1996 (when he replaced their former bassist and vocalist, Taneli Jarva) until the group ended their career in 2005. When joining Sentenced he was soon accepted by fans. He wrote very few songs for Sentenced (whose main-songwriters were Miika Tenkula and Sami Lopakka), for example the song "Aika Multaa Muistot" on the album, "The Cold White Light".


Style[edit]

In the beginning of his career with Sentenced his vocals had been quite sharp and rocky, but as their music got more melodic he sang in a very low and melancholic way.
