Volbeat Premiere Music Video For Their LG Petrov Tribute “Becoming”

Gold-certified Danish hard rock outfit Volbeat had premiered a music video for their track “Becoming“. That song is the band’s tribute to late Entombed, etc. vocalist LG Petrov, who passed away in early 2021 following a battle with bile duct cancer.

Volbeat vocalist/guitarist Michael Poulsen commented:

“We were recording ‘Servant Of The Mind‘ in Jacob Hansen’s studio, and we were about to record the song “Becoming.” And it has that opening riff that’s really inspired by the mighty Entombed, and you know, we just talked about why not put that Boss Heavy Metal HM-2W pedal on that Entombed was so well known for, and bands like Dismember and a lot of Swedish Death Metal bands, actually.

It’s the signature Death Metal Swedish distorted guitar sound, and it sounds disgustingly good (laughs). So, we thought, why not use that pedal on that riff? So, we did and it just ended up just sounding even more like Entombed, and it turned out to be a really good song and it was probably one of the most heavy riffs in Volbeat. But later on, of course, we were hearing the sad news about LG passing, a very sad day, and I think it is still very sad that he is not around.

He was one of our really great friends. I had a lot of great conversations with LG. And we were always hanging out when it was it was possible, and talking and helping each other out, as well. So, we decided, later on, to actually dedicate ‘Becoming‘ to LG because of the great inspiration that we had in that song. So, yeah, ‘Becoming‘ has somehow become the LG song.”

Volbeat videographer Brittany Bowman directed this clip. The band will be out with Skindred, Bad Wolves and Napalm Death this fall in Europe and the UK. Those dates include:
