Vadikan - Hydrargyrum 3.5/5 Vadikan Review - CHRIS
Vainglory - s/t 2.5/5 (2nd CD of bruising, heavy-duty U.S. metal with groove a la Chastain or Benedictum; a bit too one-dimensional and monotonous for me) - KIT

Valiance - Wayfaring 1.5/5 - KIT
Valiance - The unglorious conspiracy 2/5 - KIT
Valkija - Avengers of steel 2/5 (respectable Italian female fronted traditional metal a la Backslash or Ligeia; the occasional Dani Filth-style screams almost ruin it) - KIT
Valkiria - The pathway 1/5 (power metal debut in the style of Gamma Ray and Dungeon, but one that's held back by a poor production and average songwriting) - CLINT
Valkyrie - Holy fire 3.5/5 (quality female fronted Russian-language symphonic/gothic/power metal from the band formerly known as Uncreated Light) - CLINT
Valkyrie's Cry - s/t 3/5 (true metal debut from Canada; material and performances are good, but recording quality is inexcusably poor) - KIT

Van Canto - Hero 4/5 Van Canto Review - KIT

Vanderbuyst - In Dutch 3.5/5 (2nd CD that’s great traditional metal recalling the early days of Rage, S.A.D.O., Helloise, and their ilk) - MICHAEL
Vanderbuyst - s/t 3.5/5 - MICHAEL
Vandroya - One 3.5/5 (well-executed debut of uptempo female fronted power/progressive metal from Brazil; good stuff, but a few too many keys for my taste) - KIT
Vanguard (Fin) - Hydralchemy 3/5 (2nd CD from this "beauty and the beast" gothic metal band, which has less of the cello/violin parts than their debut; similar to Tristania) - CLINT
Vanguard (Fin) - Succumbra 3.5/5 (symphonic/gothic metal debut with violin/cello parts; similar to Tristania, Myriads and The Sins of Thy Beloved) - CLINT
Vanguard (U.S.) - First assault 2/5 (traditional U.S. metal/NWOBHM style debut from 1993; sounds primitive/clumsy now, but metal was in dire shape in those days) - KIT

Velvetseal - Lend me your wings 2.5/5 (passable female fronted symphonic/gothic metal debut that doesn't stand out amongst the many other similar bands) - CLINT

Vendetta (Ger) - Brain damage 5/5 - MICHAEL
Vendetta (Ger) - Go and live... stay and die 4.5/5 - MICHAEL
Vendetta (U.K.) - World under fire 3.5/5 (strong 3rd CD of melodic heavy metal from the U.K.; like heavier Dokken perhaps) - KIT

Venin Noir - Rainy days of October 3.5/5 (worthy debut with operatic vocals a la Nightwish/Visions of Atlantis, but musically blends symphonic metal and gothic metal) - CLINT
