“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.”, the band added.

Many known faces from the music circle have expressed their sadness and shared their condolences as well. Amon Amarth’s vocalist Johan Hegg talked about the late musician, saying that he would miss L-G Petrov.
The word legend is to small to describe LG and what he meant for me as a friend and inspiration.
Not only was he one of the best and original voices in metal, but the most kind, humble, funny and genuine person one could ever hope to meet.
I will miss you my friend!
