RIP LG Petrov

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Monday, March 8, 2021 at 11:18 AM (PST)

Today we hang our heads, raise our horns in respect and send all the love in our charred, heavy hearts out to friends and family of iconic death metal vocalist Lars-Göran “LG” Petrov and all the bands he was ever in. The extremely influential death metal cult singer was the bellowing and intense voice of Nihilist, Entombed, Firespawn, Entombed A.D. and for many THE buck stops here voice of Swedish death.

Albert from mighty Decibel posted a fitting memorial tribute of note HERE. I get too emotional about these things and he did a better job recapping dude’s life than I can today under these circumstances.

Converge posted a thrilling live clip of them full of excitement and intensity performing live with LG on Instagram HERE. It gave me goosebumps, made me pump my fist and cry. Fuck.

Entombed A.D. posted the following to Facebook (where many fans are leaving moving tribute comments to the late singer):

We are devastated to announce that our beloved friend Lars-Göran Petrov has left us.⁣⁣

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. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

R.I.P. LG Petrov.
