Tom G. Warrior Has No Respect For Record Companies

Spain's TNT Radio Rock recently conducted an interview with members of Triptykon - the occult/avantgarde metal outfit formed by ex-Celtic Frost mainman Thomas Gabriel Fischer (a.k.a. Tom G. Warrior) at this year's edition of the Leyendas Del Rock festival, which was held past summer at Polideportivo Municipal de Villena in Villena, Spain. You can watch the entire chat in the video below.

Being asked about the recent BMG/Noise reissues of Celtic Frost's seminal catalog, a campaign Fischer ultimately withdrew his endorsement from because of disagreements on the content on his liner notes, Fischer states:

"I had some disagreements with BMG Records who own the rights to these albums these days, but it's of minor importance. It was a disagreement of what should be in the booklet and what should not. It's nothing new in the recording industry that the record company doesn't have the same opinion as the recording artist. But as far as the sound is concerned, I'm very proud of what we've done, most of the credit has to go to Victor Santura. I'm very proud of the achievement."

"I have no respect for record companies. I started in the 1980s worshipping - I wanted a record deal - I worshiped record companies. They represented, to me, the key to becoming a musician, which was my dream. But after thirty-five years of learning about myself, I've seen the realities of the music industry. We are fortunate enough to work with our own record company, so we have all the freedom in the world. Because we have our own record company, we can work at a very high level and professional. I don't like to work with companies who work on a lower level of professionalism. So I sometimes lose my patience when somebody doesn't work at the level we are used to. I didn't spend thirty-five years in the industry to deliver mediocre. If I wanted to release something, whether it's an old Celtic Frost album or a new Triptykon, I would like it to reflect myself or the artist on one hand. On the other hand, it should reflect the highest level of quality possible. If somebody fails to do that, yes, I'm unhappy. I think that's a very natural instinct. My name is on the record. If a record company fucks up, my name is still on there."
