It looks like the legal dispute between Entombed’s Alex Hellid, Uffe Cederlund, and Nicke Andersson, and their former singer LG Petrov regarding the Entombed trademark has officially been settled. The Swedish Court of First Instance have ruled in favor of Hellid, Cederlund, and Andersson, meaning the trio will now be able to make music and tour as Entombed. It is unknown how the ruling will affect Petrov, who’s been performing under the name Entombed A.D.
Hellid, Cederlund, and Andersson told Blabbermouth the following:
“Naturally we are delighted with the decision of the courts. It’s a great relief that this issue is now finally ruled on and we can return to focusing on giving people more Entombed. We have discussed ideas and plans of what we want to do and look forward to working together on creating the best possible Entombed for the future, both in the recording studio and in a live setting.”
