Ville Laihiala (born 13 June 1973) is a Finnish vocalist. He was the 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".


Sentenced was a Finnish heavy metal band that played melodic death metal in their early years. The band formed in 1989, in the town of Muhos, Finland, and broke up in 2005.

Ville's voice is deep and melodic. He wrote a few songs for both Sentenced and Poisonblack, the later stopped playing as a band in September 2015, however rumors are that Ville has ideas of re forming Posionblack.
