We were very saddened to learn that pioneering Entombed vocalist LG Petrov is currently battling an unspecified form of cancer which he said was uncurable. Today, we have some more info.
In a new interview with Metal Hammer, LG explained how he learned of his diagnosis:
“A couple of months ago. I felt a lump in my solar plexus. And I was, like, ‘OK, I’ll ignore it.’ But then it started to hurt, so I went to the doctor, and they X-rayed it quickly and said, ‘You have to go to the specialist.’ That was weird. You can’t imagine what it feels like. Your whole body goes warm. It’s, like, ‘Fucking hell.’”
He explained that he has a cancer of the bile duct. “The cancer is called gallvägscancer in Swedish. I didn’t look it up on the internet, because I just don’t want to read about it, but it’s something to do with the bile duct. I’ve had a few beers throughout my life, but the liver is tip-top. I’ve smoked a lot, but the lungs are tip-top. It’s just very, very bad luck. Cancer doesn’t have feelings. It’s just maximum bad luck.”
LG noted that Jay Weinberg from Slipknot encouraged him to launch the GoFundMe to help with all the medical costs. He also noted that a portion of the donations will be granted to Barncancerfonden, a Swedish children’s cancer fund.
