do you pronounce ArnoCorps?
The "ps" is silent, you low-forehead.
ArnoCorps a tribute band?
A tribute band is a group that covers the material of another established
musician or band. There are no other musicians, past or present,

your songs about movies?
ArnoCorps songs are inspired by ancient tales of lore and mythology
that have been passed down for generations. These stories, which
all help define Arno through their archetypal heroic themes, are
traditionally told through song. Confusion is created by the fact
that the same tales that inspire our fantastic music have also inspired
several Hollywood films. We dismiss them as irrelevant because of
their exploitative nature.
is the word used to describe the intangible energy, or force, that
allows for the action adventure lifestyle to be pursued. It is what
separates the heroes from the losers. It surrounds, penetrates,
and binds ArnoCorps and our audience together. Understanding and
utilizing the power of Arno enables individuals to feel The Pump.
is "The Pump" and how do you achieve it?
Experience an ArnoCorps live action-adventure audio assault, and
you will know. Some describe the experience as being like an orgasm.
ArnoCorps still an Austrian band?
We now consider ourselves an Austrian-American band. Vocalist Holzfeuer
was born and raised in Austria. Drummer
Gellend Adler was tragically kidnapped from California at the age
of four and raised as a slave in Austria until he escaped and joined the band. Bassist Toten Adler spent
5 years in Austria looking for his brother in the mid-1990's. Guitarist Vielmehr Klampfe claims to be from the future, but will indeed be born in Austria. Inzo der Barrakuda's origin remains unknown. Karl Dichtschnur recently returned to the band, and is Austrian, despite being imprisoned in a basement in the French alps by a British pharmacist for the past 11 years.
Where is ArnoCorps now based?
The ArnoHQ Facility is located in Oakland, California.
Why don't you have songs about Kindergarten
Cop, Twins, and Junior?
Those ancient tales of lore and mythology, while worthy in many
respects, are not ones that encompass the action adventure lifestyle,
which is the essence of the power of Arno, therefore they do not
get represented in our audio assaults. However, there are heroic elements of these stories that may one day be told through ArnoCorps songs.
What is the difference between ArnoCore and ArnoCorps?
ArnoCore is the style of music that we have pioneered, also known
as Action Adventure Hardcore Rock and Roll. ArnoCorps is the name
of the band. Both words are pronounced the same.
Why do you speak English instead of German?
Since the band is now based in the United States, we have decided
to only speak the most widely understood language in order to reach
the maximum number of people. Also, since Holzfeuer was exiled from
Austria, he refuses to speak his native language, as a form of protest.
ArnoCorps maintains that the band was born in Austria, but made in America.
How many members does ArnoCorps have?
There are 5 active duty members. In the
history of the band, there have been a total of 15 front line members, 6 of
which are now deceased.
ArnoCorps ever killed anyone?
While several people have unfortunately been hospitalized due to
the intensity of our music, we assure you, we are a rescue team,
not assassins. We rescue people from their humdrum existence by
thrusting them into the action adventure lifestyle where they can
feel the power of Arno and achieve a fantastic pump.
Why do ArnoCorps members wear military clothing?
The young founding members of ArnoCorps went AWOL from the Austrian Army for their first public performance in 1989. With no time to change out of their battle dress uniforms before the show, the look of the band was determined by fate. After the success of the first performance, it became tradition to wear the fatigues.
does ArnoCorps wear face paint?
It is an ancient tradition in some Austrian communities
to roast marshmallow over a fire to represent the burning of body
fat. The ashes from the fire are then ceremoniously spread across
the face, serving as a reminder not to become soft like marshmallow.
ArnoCorps carries on this tradition symbolically with face paint.
We encourage attendees of live ArnoCorps audio assaults to do the
