Mark and the band are very excited to have him back.

We also want thank Fernando Von Arb for everything he did and wish him all the best for the future!

After the announcement of Fernando’s departure we would like to give you some more information:

Of course we do understand that some fans are really disapointed that’s ok and that’s why we have a guestbook.. to let people say whatever they feel! It was also not really easy and funny for the band to go on after Fern’s decision but as respect for him, everybody must understand…. THIS IS HIS DECISION! Of course he’s an engine and a great musician but we are convinced that with the talent of Mandy Meyer we will be able to give our fans what they deserve and in RESPECT of what Krokus was and still IS!

This decision was taken in a quiet situation there is no fight goin’on and the band and Fern are and will remain always in contact. We will also inform you about Fernando’s future projects on these pages!

Immediate future of Krokus will be first to bring this Band with Mandy on the road for more concerts and the new album will be postpone a little, but no worries it will happen!
