Entombed guitarists Alex Hellid and Uffe Cederlund, as well as drummer Nicke Andersson, have issued a collective statement on the passing of their former bandmate and vocalist Lars-Göran "LG" Petrov. Petrov passed away earlier this week after a battle with bile duct cancer.
"All the years, all the toil, all the dreams, the struggle, the rewards, the humor, the laughter, and the tears. It’s been a long damn journey and the memories are many and fantastic. Everything we’ve experienced and laughed at together, the big and the small, from being teenage kids to almost growing up. Your now legendary and unique sayings, your ‘LGisms’, must surely one day find their way into the dictionary. How can you argue against ‘Pizza was invented in the late ’70s by Turkish people in Bredäng (Sweden)’!
"Our thoughts go to your family, and your wider other family — your many friends all around the world. Through everyone you’ve touched, you live on. We will forever miss you, a member of our family, and we will always keep the good memories with us.
"Rest in peace LG."
The aforementioned quartet, alongside bassist David Blomqvist, founded Entombed in 1989. The band underwent some inner turmoil over their name in 2013, which caused Hellid, Cederlund, and Andersson to become Entombed, while Petrov and his lineup became Entombed A.D.
Additionally, MetalSucks tracked down this rare footage of the band performing in 1994.
