Interview with HIRAX front man Katon W. de Pena

In the early 1980s, Katon W. DePena, vocalist and founding member of Hirax, played an active part in the nascent Californian Thrash scene together with bands such as Metallica, Exodus and Slayer. In March 2015, moments before Hirax played their first-ever UK gig, Katon cheerily answered a few questions that I had for him.
