Vocalist of Swedish metallers Entombed A.D., Lars-Göran Petrov, sadly passed away last night, March 7th at the age of 49.

The band broke the news this morning with the following message:

⁣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.

Petrov publicly announced in August 2020 via a GoFundMe campaign that he was battling an incurable form of bile duct cancer. “I’ve been hit with uncureable cancer (gallvägscancer in Swedish), and have been battling it for some time now. It can’t be removed but the doctors are trying to control it with chemo therapy. Life takes its weird turns…” Petrov said at the time.

Petrov also performed with Entombed, Firespawn, Morbid, Nihilist, Comecon and more during his time on earth. RIP.
