LG Petrov (Entombed A.D.) Opens Up About His Battle With Cancer

As previously reported, LG Petrov (Entombed A.D.) recently revealed that he has been diagnosed with bile duct cancer. Now, the frontman has further discussed his battle with the disease during an interview with Metal Hammer.

Petrov said the following:

“A couple of months ago. I felt a lump in my solar plexus. And I was, like, ‘OK, I’ll ignore it.’ But then it started to hurt, so I went to the doctor, and they X-rayed it quickly and said, ‘You have to go to the specialist.’ That was weird. You can’t imagine what it feels like. Your whole body goes warm. It’s, like, ‘Fucking hell.’”

He continued after being asked if doctors will be able to treat it since he previously said it was incurable:

“That’s what they’re hoping for. I will find out when I meet my doctor, who is the best doctor when it comes to this particular cancer. Being young, the doctor said there’s hopefully a way to control it so it doesn’t spread, or maybe even make it smaller.”

He also talked a bit about the lifestyle changes he has made since getting diagnosed:

“The first day I found out, I quit smoking, quit drinking. I haven’t done either in a couple of months. I’ve gone over to the other side. It feels great! I can smell cigarettes from a hundred yards: ‘Oh shit, there’s somebody smoking.’ It makes me want to puke now.”

Petrov also discussed the chemotherapy he has been undergoing:

“It’s very, very hard stuff. It’s not water they’re putting in you. You’re very, very weak. You get all these pills filled with cortisones [a steroid for strength], and you can’t sleep. Pills for nausea as well. But if you take a sleeping pill, then it works against it.

I didn’t sleep at all last night. I waited until my local store opened at 8am, then put some clothes on and slowly walked there. It’s a mile but I had to sit down three times to rest. Your body gets so unimaginably weak. But like I say, I’m a positive person.”

He also added the following about his mental health:

“I’m a really positive person, but sometimes you get really depressed, of course. But I have so many good friends that call me, visit me. We sit outside – distanced, of course. My doctor actually ordered me to have cigars and rum. He said, ‘That’s about life quality.’ Not a lot of rum, just a taste. Same with cigars. But it helps.”

Amorphis Cancel North American Tour With Entombed A.D. & Nervosa

Amorphis have cancelled their North American tour with Entombed A.D. and Nervosa due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band are hoping to rebook the trek at some point in the future.

Amorphis commented:

“Dear fans in USA and Canada.

Amorphis is sad to announce that due to the Covid-19 also our ”Tales From The Thousand Lakes” anniversary-tour is cancelled.

We were optimistic to the very end but it looks like there’s not going to be any tours for quite a while now.

However, the anniversary-tour will happen. A rescheduling of the tour dates is planned but obviously not set yet as nobody knows how long this pandemia is going to take.

The most important thing now is to take care or each others and families. See you soon friends, we all are going to get through these hard times!

For ticket refunds please contact your ticket provider.
