In the continuing war of words between SINERGY vocalist Kimberly Goss and PRIMAL FEAR bassist Mat Sinner over Sinner's alleged mistreatment of SINERGY when the latter group supported PRIMAL FEAR on a 1999 European tour, Goss has issued a response to Mat's statement calling for Kimberly to concentrate on her career and not live in the past, as posted here earlier today.

According to Goss, "if Mat doesn't want to 'live in the past,' as he puts it, why is he threatening to sue me for a couple of words I said about him in an interview? Words that I feel best describe his attitude on that tour.

I've been on at least 30 tours in my lifetime, and never once have I ever encountered a band with such a 'rock star' complex.

If [Sinner] thinks 'the metal scene should stick together,' he sure had a funny way of showing that to us on tour! I mean, cutting off our lights during our set, not allowing us to shower or eat or have access to the backstage until PRIMAL FEAR decided we could, and starting our intro [tape] before the doors even opened!

Many fans drove for hours to see us, and missed us due to his childish behavior. He felt so insecure about his own band that he tried everything in his 'power' to sabotage our gigs on that tour (this coming from a man old enough to be my grandfather).

When we asked him why he felt the need to treat us this way, his response was, 'Well this is how it is on tour. If you toured with MANOWAR or DIO, you would be treated much worse, so be glad for what you have now.'

What a bunch of bull!

I've toured with hundreds of bands and NEVER had an experience like this before! In fact, one year later we toured with NIGHTWISH (a MUCH bigger band than PRIMAL FEAR),and they treated us with all the class and respect in the world. That was a tour in which the 'metal scene really stuck together'.
