Tom G. Warrior Slams Metallica For Their Celtic Frost Covers: “It Was Humiliating”

As you may recall, Metallica’s Robert Trujillo and Kirk Hammett previously performed Celtic Frost’s “The Usurper” and “Procreation Of The Wicked” as part of their nightly “doodle” segment. However, during a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Celtic Frost’s Tom G. Warrior slammed the band for the covers, saying they were “humiliating.”

Warrior said the following:

“They butchered it, and it was humiliating. Why don’t they leave their millionaire fingers off it? They’ve long lost the ability to play true metal in my opinion. Maybe I should go onstage and do a really miserable version of ‘Hit The Lights’ with, like, 200 mistakes to set the balance.”

He also went on to slam James Hetfield for his interest in hunting:

“This is completely personal, and I know probably the majority of your readers will not share this feeling, but even if they had done a fantastic job, I could puke all over it because I don’t support people who go hunting bears for a hobby. I cannot respect a person like that, even if it’s a genius musician.”
