While Korn has been preparing to release and promote their new studio album along with its upcoming 2022 tour, its guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch appeared in an interview recently. The talented guitarist talked about his beliefs while he was also questioning being a Christian.
Brian Head Welch had first talked about his religious beliefs when the Korn guitarist left the band in 2005 to release his debut solo Christian album titled “Save Me From Myself” in 2008. But later, the talented guitarist returned to the regarded nu-metal band one year after he had joined the band onstage at the Carolina Rebellion festival in Rockingham, in 2013. After he had spoken about his relationship with religion Brian Head Welch also clarified his stance on Christianity in a new video titled “Am I Still A Christian?.”
Back in the past, Korn guitarist said during his conversation on religion that:
“I got obsessed with it, just like I was obsessed with the drugs. I believe I did, for sure. And I had to come out of that and find normalcy because there’s nothing worse than a freakin’ irritating religious person just shoving it down your throat – there’s nothing worse than that.”
And Korn guitarist Brian Head Welch also explained some of his comments were taken out of context by some while he was also addressing the negative feedback he received.
“When I first became a Christian, I was coming off of methamphetamines, first of all,” started Korn guitarist. ” and I had a massively powerful encounter where God was revealing himself to me,” Head started explaining. “And so those two sides of the coin — coming off of meth and a powerful encounter — I didn’t know how to react and I just went out and I was overzealous, I was obnoxious with my faith, and it took me a while to bring it down. So that’s all I was trying to say in that video, in that podcast with Robb Flynn.
I still share my faith, my personal stories of things that I go through in a non-religious way, I feel like,” he continued. “I try to be very spiritual, but non… Like, ‘This is this, this is how it’s helped me, da da da.’ My manager hit me up and he’s, like, ‘Hey, I think you should address this because I think people are really starting to believe that you renounced it.’ And I was, like, ‘All right. All right. I’ll post about it.'”
Korn guitarist Brian Head Welche continued to explain the situation, “But that kind of stuff doesn’t get to me at all anymore. It’s just, like, whatever. People can twist your words however they want. I have an amazing relationship with God and I know where that stands. So I’m very confident in that, so I don’t gotta really worry about it for temporary controversy,” he finished.
