His bandmates revealed that the singer passed away on Sunday, March 7 after being diagnosed with bile duct cancer. He was 49.

In a statement, Entombed AD wrote: “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. ⁣⁣”

 LG rose to fame as a member of Swedish death metal icons Entombed, appearing on eight of the band’s classic albums. He formed Entombed AD in 2013. ”
