A sombre start to the show this week as, after a brief battle with bile duct cancer, Entombed A.D. vocalist LG Petrov has passed away at the age of 49. Remfry and Steve pay tribute to a man who has influenced countless bands across the extreme world. RIP LG. 

In other news, Kreator are going to be headlining Bloodstock Festival this year (if it goes ahead) replacing Mercyful Fate, Architects secured a No.1 album on the UK Official Album Charts and, bizarrely, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine has claimed that there are no bands anymore …
