ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Throughout the history of mankind, the stories most often told through song are those of great deeds and fantastic adventures.

ArnoCorps (pronounced är-no-kôr) continue this tradition by bringing to audiences original musical interpretations of ancient Austrian lore and mythology, such as Terminator, Commando, Predator, Total Recall and True Lies. In doing so, ArnoCorps has created a new genre of music: Action Adventure Hardcore Rock and Roll.

"A work of deranged sublime genius" 9/10 Terrorizer

It should come as no surprise that the pioneers of Action-Adventure Hardcore Rock and Roll claim to be The Greatest Band of All Time.

After going AWOL from the Austrian Army to form the band in 1989, ArnoCorps became wanted men in their native Gratz, Austria. Forced into exile with only their instruments and combat fatigues, the band relentlessly toured Europe using a renovated milk truck before finally settling in the United States, choosing California as the new base of their operations.

Since their 2001 arrival in the burgeoning San Francisco Bay Area music scene, ArnoCorps has paved a steady, disciplined and often destructive path to ensure that all those who bear witness to their live Action Adventure Audio Assault agree with their ballsy assertion.

"ArnoCorps are not an Arnold Schwarzenegger tribute band! Do you understand?" Bizarre Magazine

Initially, one might perceive ArnoCorps as merely a group of six highly trained renegade Austrian action-rock heroes. Big mistake. The motivation behind the band is far too complex to be defined by such superficial characteristics. ArnoCorps has been singularly responsible for restoring integrity to the many Austrian tales that have been bastardized for cinematic exploitation throughout their lifetimes.

The principles of the action-adventure lifestyle are defined in ArnoCorps music in a way that has never been heard before. Beyond the distinctively accented delivery of lead vocalist Holzfeuer, ArnoCorps' sound is defined by a unique band arrangement of heroic symmetry. The two guitars of Vielmehr Klampfe and Inzo der Barrakuda are counterbalanced by the two basses of Toten Adler and Der Wölf, while the critically acclaimed drumming of Gellend Adler provides the backbone of the band. As described by Blender Magazine, “ArnoCorps' delivery is aggressive and fast”.

"If you want to achieve a true pump stick the Greatest Band Of All Time in your CD player. This stuff'll make you a goddamn sexual tyrannosaurus" Nick Cracknell, Total Guitar

ArnoCorps' explosive live performance doesn't depend on pyrotechnics or lighting effects to create excitement. The band's pure physicality qualified them to be featured in San Francisco’s World's Deadliest Bands annual showcase two years running.

With ballsy attitudes, unmatched machismo, an affinity for stogies, and an unrelenting passion for feeling The Pump, these last action rock heroes can be an intimidating presence during their highly physical on-stage live audio assaults. However, there is no need for the audience to fear ArnoCorps, they are a rescue team, not assassins.

ArnoCorps' infectious on-stage energy incites its crowds to join in the screaming of quotes from ancient lore, such as "Kill me now!", "Get your ass to Mars!" and "Stick Around!". The accompanying sound is heavy, fast, precise and loud, as heard at an unprecedented level 12 amplification. Attendees are no longer merely observers, but willing participants in a life-changing event. Many audience members claim to leave with increased muscle mass, a better understanding of life's mysteries and feeling like "goddamn heroes".

"Do ArnoCorps deliver on the promise of being a great band? You'd better believe it!" 4/5 Zero Tolerance

Now, let ArnoCorps tell you of the days of high adventure! Come on! Do it now!! What are you waiting for!?

ArnoCorps Rules!
ArnoCorps rules! This album kicks ass. The CD comes with liner notes that have all the lyrics. Recording quality is pretty good too.

Rad cd, like an 80's nostalgia trip through a minefield, I have no idea how they'll follow this up though

Syzygy Collapse

Arnocorps is the coolest f**king band ever. If I were to start a band, it'd be that, and now I can't, so I'm never gonna. I haven't heard the whole cd, but every song I've heard is a balls-out, guns-blazing ear crusher. The fact that they've come from such an obscure background to become one of california's most enjoyed, and quite possibly feared acts, is more than enough to give them a go. If you don't like it, then maybe you should go let off some steam, Bennett. 10/10. Make another cd! even if there aren't anymore movies to write them about. make it up and ask him to make the movie after. He will, because you guys are the coolest.

Ben Sherman

This CD ROCKS!!!!

Ballsy Music for God Damned Heroes!
If you find yourself becoming increasingly upset by pencil pushers and unheroic actions, then you may be a god damned hero. Arnocorps is music that proudly anounces 'I'm here, come on, do it now! Arnocorps provides a Ballsy answer to the mundane metal and punk scene that currently resides in the CD asiles. Lace up your boots, get in the choppah' and pick this CD up. Do it now!!! before you blow our cover! You'll be thanking me for the advices.

ARNOCORPS!!
ARNO!!!!
These guys are awesome. This is one of the best cd's ever and if you don't buy it you might as well jump in front of a bus because you're missing the greatest thing you'll ever hear. See ya at Gilman on the 21st.


RUNNING MAN!!!!!
Peace!

It says it in the title... duh!!!
This album is really the worlds first, only, and probably last perfect album. All the songs come together in a heroic unison of sound, power, and happiness. It flows like a wild tale of adventure and honor passed down through generation after generation and finally compressed into sound waves and stamped onto a CD. Those eons of legend are crafted into this epic collection of songs that is strong from beginning to end. There are no low points. It is true manly ballsy hairy meaty riffery throughout from the brain-smashing beginning to the climactic ending. BUY THIS ALBUM! DO IT NOW!!!!

METAL HAMMER Magazine, Jan 2006

"... this is a victorious debut."
Musically the band sound like a beefed-up Turbonegro with an ominous edge, fronted by an Austrian death metal vocalist. "The Greatest..." showcases the band's unique vision that places them somewhere in the hinterland where rock meets metal - and despite being a bunch of complete (and probably dangerous) loonies, this is a victorious debut.

ZERO TOLERANCE Magazine, Jan 2006

Do ArnoCorps deliver on the promise of being a great band? You'd better believe
If a band is going to call their album something like The Greatest Band Of All Time, when it comes to giving the CD a spin they better be able to back it up with some serious content. Do ArnoCorps deliver on the promise of being a great band? You'd better believe it.
