R.I.P. LG Petrov of ENTOMBED, Dead at 49
Lars-Göran Petrov, known as LG Petrov, the lead vocalist for Swedish death metal band, Entombed and Entombed A.D., has passed away at the age of 49, after a long battle with bile duct cancer. He was the band's frontman from 1988 up until the band split in 2014. He then went and formed Entombed A.D. with the other remaining previous members, where he remained as vocalist.
The Entombed A.D. released a statement about his death:
“Our brother, leader, vocalist, our Chief Rebel Angel went on another ride last night. It’s with the deepest sadness that we have to announce that Lars-Göran Petrov has left us.
He was (is!!!) an incredible friend, and a person that has touched so many people. He has changed so many lives with his voice, his music, his character and his unique personality.
LG’s smile is something that we will carry forever in our hearts. When asked in an interview what he would like to have written on his grave and what about his legacy, he said: "I will never die, it will never die". And you didn’t. You will live forever in our hearts. "
