Lars Göran Petrov (born 17 February 1972), often abbreviated to LG Petrov, is a Swedish singer of Macedonian[1] origin. He is best known for his work with the band Entombed. In 1991 he was forced to quit Entombed, due to Petrov "making an ill-advised pass" at the girlfriend of Entombed drummer Nicke Andersson.[2] He contributed the vocals for fellow Swedish death metal band Comecon's debut album Megatrends in Brutality. In 1992, he returned to Entombed. He also played drums in Morbid, which featured Mayhem vocalist Per Yngve "Dead" Ohlin in its original line up.[3]

In 2013, Entombed A.D. was formed by the line-up of Entombed at the time, excluding guitarist Alex Hellid, who had decided to split with the remainder of the group. He is also now the lead vocalist of a death metal supergroup called Firespawn, which features Victor Brandt (also of Entombed A.D.), and members of Necrophobic, Unleashed and Dark Funeral.[4]

Style[edit]

Petrov is known for his brutal and aggressive death metal delivery, but has on occasion showcased a controlled clean baritone, such as on the tracks Bitter Loss from Entombed's debut album, Left Hand Path, and on Death by Impalement from the Firespawn album, The Reprobate.

Influences[edit]

Petrov has talked about an early admiration for British heavy metal such as Iron Maiden, black metal such as Bathory and Mercyful Fate,[5] and thrash metal such as Voivod.[6]
