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.
R.I.P. LG Petrov.
Petrov — of Swedish and Macedonian heritage — had been diagnosed with bile duct cancer some time last year that was judged to be “inoperable,” and so this event was not unexpected, just sudden. We hope that life means more than matter reshaping itself and he is somewhere, haunting the living and the dead alike.
Don’t want to live in a decaying shell
But why should I go to heaven
And who’s to say I’ll enter hell
Dead – Deceased, but life goes on
I will be the one who won
My charred body will decay
But my soul will be floating anyway
