ArnoCorps' highly anticipated sequel to The Ballsy EP! Featuring action adventure hardcore rock n roll depictions of the Hyborian age!

CALLING ALL GODDAMN HEROES AND SHEROES! The time has arrived! We're hitting the studio to record The Fantastic EP this February (update: studio time booked for March, with grammy award winning producer/engineer, Michael Rosen). This time we're leaving it in the hands of the fans to determine our ballsy budget for the production and engineering efforts of this heroic endeavor! 

While we've enjoyed the advantages of being on record labels in the past, ArnoCorps has now chosen a path of autonomy and independence to enhance heroic community participation.

Experience has proven that whenever we get the fans directly involved in ArnoCorps' fate, fantastic things happen. By creating a direct link with the band, the global community of fans will have direct influence on how we proceed in our mission to restore integrity to the ancient heroic alpine lore that continues to inspire the pump and motivate the pursuit of the action adventure lifestyle!

Since returning to California from our Ballsy Summer Blockbuster UK & Ireland 2012 Tour, we've been hard at work writing the best songs ArnoCorps has ever written. We push to raise the bar with each new release, and this time we intend to exceed all expectations, right there! With a large enough budget, we can book adequate studio time to enhance the motivational and muscle building capacity of the new songs. It will also allow us to hire the most talented, capable and appropriately ballsy producer and engineering team to tackle this fantastic endeavor.

The tracks will include a brand new re-worked version of "Crom (Strong On His Mountain)", plus "Conan the Destroyer" and "King Conan (Crown of Iron)"! Following those fantastic songs will be "Red Sonja", "Hercules" and a new life-changing anthem, "Exactly"!

This release will feature the full-on patented "Heroic Symmetry" sound of Holzfeuer on vocals, Vielmehr Klampfe on guitar, Erich Nagelbett on guitar, Inzo der Barrakuda on bass, Karl Dichtschnur on bass and Baron Von Trotz on drums!

Our goal dollar amount is the bare minimum to get a production quality comparable to what we achieved on "The Ballsy EP" and "Two More!", but if we surpass that goal, we promise to use every dime to enhance the pump of this release! GO!!!!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

ArnoCorps is no stranger to risks, especially when it's for the greater good of the heroes and sheroes around the world. Obstacles, villains or camels may get in the way during the mission but if anyone can punch their way through it, ArnoCorps can! Backers will get proper feedback of progress from ArnoCorps themselves. ArnoCorps has never failed because failing is for losers and we are goddamn heroes. That's right, exactly.
