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.”
