Hello, everyone. Today was a rough one in our metal universe. We’ll start with one announcement and hopefully move onto some more positive news.
We lost another legend today. Entombed frontman, LG Petrov, passed away after a battle with cancer. I remember his announcement about his condition last August, and honestly this still doesn’t feel real. Entombed A.D. made a statement earlier today that you can read on their Facebook page. Fuck cancer.
And we’ll close with the new music video from Varmia for “Ten Blask Co Po Nim Śmierć” (“The Gleam and Then Death”). That track is taken from bal Lada, their third album, which drops this coming Friday through M-Theory Audio. Pre-orders available here.
So, let’s talk about this Amorphis tour. They have North American dates coming this September and October, with support from Entombed AD and Nervosa. They are going to be performing Tales From The Thousand Lakes in full. Can’t miss this one.
Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
Leading off, the battle for the rights to Entombed‘s band name appears to have been decided in favor of the non-“A.D.” contingent of the band — a.k.a. everyone other than possible-Tolkien-dwarf L-G Petrov. Hopefully that’ll be the end of this almost-as-stupid-as-the-two-Queensrÿches saga.
