Vader - Tibi et Igni
Review by Mike Korn
In Poland, Vader is the metal band.

Various Artists - Twisted Forever...A Tribute to Twisted Sister
Review by Mike Korn
Twisted Sister was one of my favorite "hair" bands from the 80's. Despite the fact that I loathed most of the glammy commercial metal at that time, there was something fun about these goofy looking New Yorkers that appealed to me.

They say that rock and roll is the devil's music. Well, there are those definitely agree and who do their level best to make tunes that Old Nick would be proud of.

Various Artists - Thriller - A Metal Tribute to Michael Jackson
Review by Gary Hill
I know the title says this is a “metal” tribute, but I question whether the person who gave it that title knows what “heavy metal” is.

Various Artists - Sweet Leaf - A Stoner Rock Salute To Black Sabbath
Review by Gary Hill
I will make no excuses about it, I’m a big Black Sabbath fan.

Venom - Resurrection
Review by Mike Korn
Not many bands can say they started a whole sub-genre of music but Venom is one. Almost 20 years ago, they were the darkest and heaviest metal band ever.

Venom - From the Very Depths...
Review by Mike Korn
Venom is eternal.  Cronos has made his pact with Old Nick for eternal youth and he’s made the most of it.

Venomous Maximus - Beg upon the Light
Review by Mike Korn
It’s quite fitting that the latest from Venomous Maximus gets reviewed in the same issue of MSJ as Black Sabbath’s 13

Vermillion Road - Palaces
Review by Gary Hill
This probably qualifies as heavy metal, but it’s more on the modern pop side of that equation.

More
Vespers 9 - True Story
Review by Gary Hill
Perhaps this doesn’t fit under heavy metal.

More
Vicious Rumors - Electric Punishment
Review by Mike Korn
How many classic albums does a band have to release before they start getting their due?

More

Voi Vod - Voi Vod
Review by Mike Korn
Voi Vod has always stood apart from the crowd. The French-Canadian mutants have been offering their own warped version of cybermetal since the early 80's and their crushing debut "War and Pain".

More
Voodoo Hill - Wild Seed of Mother Earth
Review by Gary Hill
First, I have to state the obvious - outside of a handful of guys, Rob Halford and Geoff Tate come to mind, Glenn Hughes has the best voice in hard rock and metal - the man is incredible! So, anything Hughes sings on gets some points just for his appearance.
