As i think its way more easy to produce and release music today as like in the middle of the 80s

I mean, meanwhile you can record and mix it at home and dont have to Spend like 500.000 Euro for equipment anymore. You dont need a big Record Company who will tell what you have to do. I know from some bands that the management is the Boss for everything, even for what they gonna Play live...

the biggest Problem is to get People to buy (or Stream) your stuff

Yeah, you can easily record and (self-)release stuff, but no-one's gonna buy it.
Of course nowadays in theory you can record in your living room on a computer - but when I think of some studio recordings, if it's well produced and all that, you can hear (or "feel") that room when you listen to it.
Compare that to a cd a band burned from their rehearsal room recording and you'll know what I mean...  ;)

Edit: plus we need to consider Vom talked from the (small) record company side here. He has to pay for vinyl to be pressed, do promotion/advertising and in the end the costs won't always be covered by sales.

Soon in German cinemas, DTH "Weil du nur einmal lebst" - a documentary about their touring(s).

Apparently Vom didn't enjoy the relentless rehearsing:
Quote
Es geht um die teils akribische „deutsche“ Vorbereitung, die den britischen Schlagzeuger Vom in den Wahnsinn treibt (Bassist Andi: „Weil wir eben nicht die totalen musikalischen Koryphäen sind, müssen wir das über erhöhtes Training ausgleichen“).

"It's about the sometimes meticulous "German" preparation, which drives the British drummer Vom crazy (bassist Andi: "Because we are not the total musical luminaries, we have to compensate for this through increased training")."
