TIAMAT mainman Johan Edlund has issued a statement in response to an article that ran in the current issue of Germany's Rock Hard magazine, in which Edlund is quoted as saying that he didn't “trust” anybody at TIAMAT's record company, Century Media Records. According to Johan, “in the last interview with the German magazine Rock Hard I have created quite a stir and I feel I have to add a few words to those matters. A statement where I've said that I don't trust anybody at our record company (Century Media) has been blown up to something of a main topic of something that was supposed to be a studio report, and of course, offended some of the label employees that are working their asses off for the band. In addition to this, it has been stated that there are obviously some bad feelings between the band and the label. This is indeed not true. We have a very good working relation with Century Media and we also get along extremely good on a personal level. I do not want to accuse Rock Hard but rather explain myself... I'm sure, being of the pessimistic nature, that I have expressed my fears for all the things that could possibly go wrong with the release of an album. In the heat of the moment, doing an interview during our last days in the studio and being extremely content about having something precious in our hands, I might have thrown all of our paranoia in the face of our record company. I want to apologize for this and I hope this will not be blown up to an unproportional size.”
