Lars Göran Petrov (born 17 February 1972), better known simply as LG Petrov, is a Swedish singer of Macedonian  origin. He is best known for his work with the band Entombed. In 1991 he was forced to quit Entombed, due to personal problems. He then did the vocals for Comecon's debut album Megatrends in Brutality. In 1992, he returned to Entombed. He also played drums in Morbid with Per Yngve "Dead" Ohlin in its original line up.
Although mostly known for his brutal and aggressive death metal delivery, he has on occasion also sung in a controlled clean baritone, as can be heard in Entombed originals such as "Bitter Loss" (although briefly), and covers such as Stillborn's "Albino Flogged In Black" as well as the cover of Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra's "Some Velvet Morning". Petrov performed a more traditional style of death growling on the band's debut album, Left Hand Path, but for his next album with Entombed, Wolverine Blues, his style was a more hardcore-esque shout. Over the course of a few albums, his style became reminiscent of Slayer's Tom Araya, before changing back to traditional death growling on Entombed's album Serpent Saints, and has retained this style ever since.
