Anaal Nathrakh Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Anaal Nathrakh.
The Austrian underground metal festival "Kaltenbach Open Air" (K:O:A) is celebrating it's 10th anniversary. Reason enough for Wolfgang Bartl (Rottinghill-webzine) to have a chat with K:O:A organiser Thomas Spiwak below.
Wolfgang: Hello Thomas, and thank you for taking the time for this interview! How are you?

Interviews are to be given, accreditation requests to be worked through, and also the first merchandise booths are getting booked. Concerning our infrastructure the first contracts are signed and our festival site is taking shape already virtually.
