Well-steeped in the heroic tales of their Austrian heritage, ArnoCorps take ancient myths such as “Predator,” “Commando,” “Terminator” and “Total Recall” and set them to a sonic onslaught known as action-adventure hardcore rock ‘n’ roll. While many in the press have foolishly mistaken the Austro-Californian pioneers as an Arnold Schwarzenegger tribute band, ArnoCorps actually seek to expose the shameless exploitation of their ballsy folklore at the hands of the Hollywood hype machine. Through ArnoCorps, the world can finally hear these cherished legends in the way they were meant to be told, empowering listeners to unlock their own potential to become “goddamn heroes and sheroes”.
Although known for hurling volunteer audience members record distances and crowdsurfing on top of their guitar cases in displays of superhuman athleticism, there is no need to fear ArnoCorps‘ explosive performances; they are a rescue team, not assassins. The spectacle extends beyond the stage as attendees of ArnoCorps’ fabled live audio assaults are frequently adorned in camouflage face paint and uniforms that rival the adventure-ready appearance of the band themselves. However, even newcomers will find a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere amidst a frenzy of bonding and unity under the ArnoCorps banner of ballsy defiance. Experiencing “the pump” is inevitable through crowd participation, including on-stage calisthenics challenges and impromptu, all-gender (and all body type) bodybuilding posedowns.
