Original Entombed Members Pay Tribute To The Late LG Petrov

Original Entombed members Alex Hellid, Uffe Cederlund, and Nicke Andersson have officially commented on the death of LG Petrov. As previously reported, the frontman recently passed away at the age of 49 following a battle with bile duct cancer.

Entombed said the following:

“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.”

Entombed’s Uffe Cederlund Talks Reuniting With Alex Hellid & Nicke Andersson

Ulf “Uffe” Cederlund recently talked to Decibel about reuniting with his former Entombed bandmates, Alex Hellid and Nicke Andersson, for their upcoming Close-Up Båten cruise performamce on October 27, and their “Clandestine” performamce with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra on November 12. You can read excerpts from the chat below.

Decibel: Alright, first things first: Can you tell me a little bit about how this reunion with Alex and Nicke was first broached, then pursued?

Cederlund: Alex and I got together [in 2014] when he needed my help with the orchestration of Clandestine [for the Gävle Symphonic Orchestra collaborative performance]…and we realized that we still really liked each other! We talked about how great it would be if Nicke joined us. So Alex asked to see if he was interested and he was. Nicke could not be present at that show, but he was into doing something together again. I guess the extra spur was we could not agree with L.G. Petrov on the legal issues over the name Entombed — which Nicke came up with. I felt more comfortable once Nicke got involved because he formed Entombed and wrote the best and most songs when he was in the band. None of this would exist if Nicke was not on the Entombed ship…If Nicke had called me and said not to continue on without him, I would have respected that. He was always in my heart, somehow, and I am thankful for him letting us continue. He’s the man and a genius! Alex pulls the strings to make cool things happen. I just ride along. We have fun when we hang out, we can be real honest on everything and I think it’ll be great to play with these guys again.

Decibel: Who will be singing and playing bass for the band on that Close Up Cruise?

Cederlund: I’m sorry to not be able to let you know ’cause I don’t know! We’re actually in the process of figuring that out right now. It’s sort of difficult cuz we really want this to work out the best way possible.

Decibel: Does this line-up intend to play shows beyond what’s currently booked?

Cederlund: We’re not going to do big world tours. Right now we have these two shows booked and we’re taking it from there. It must be fun and everyone must be into doing it.

Decibel: How about new music?

Cederlund: I hope so. Like I said we have been re-recording old stuff to see how we sound today — and we like it. Time is flying faster as I get older and I would love to be part of a new Entombed album. First, though, we must focus on the shows. I would be satisfied if that’s the only thing we end up doing, but I’m open for more.
