Entombed A.D. singer LG Petrov dead at 49

Posted by on March 8, 2021


We are saddened to report former Entombed and current Entombed A.D. vocalist Lars-Göran Petrov passed away yesterday, March 7th after a battle with bile duct cancer. He was 49-years-old. Petrov was diagnosed with the “incurable” disease last spring where the singer quit smoking and drinking shortly after in hopes to fight against his diagnosis.  


Members of Entombed A.D revealed the news on Facebook with the following statement:

“⁣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.”
