BRIAN ‘HEAD’ WELCH’S Repentance, The Metal Musical Gitaries KoRn

0 Comment

In February 2005, the Korn Management, the beloved metal band in the world today, issued a legitimate statement that their guitarist, Brian “Head” Welch, had left the band to devote himself to living in the Christian faith. So that everything does not become confusing Brian then explain the reason for the fans and his bandmates.


“I love the band, I’m actually afraid to leave this band. This created me sadly if I had to think that my decision would create your band hurt. For the past year and a half, I have been intent on overhauling everything, but somebody keeps pushing me to stay in the band, “Welch said. “But I had an inner conflict since the recording of the second album, I mean, we can do something and we can be revered like ‘Oh, here’s metal music! Here’s a rock and roll life!’ But actually, they are too far-off, very annoying to me ”

Welch writes that the recognition issued by Korn’s management refracts from the real atmosphere, and that the discovery of faith in Christ is not merely a twist of life in the discovery of his true self. That is not why Korn, the band that has been acting since 1993, a band that has sold more than 11 million albums in America.


“I have a 6 year old daughter, and I want her to be a useful person in my eyes. I am a single parent, that is what makes me “he said” And my colleagues most accommodate what I feel and say to them, then they offer ‘just bring your son when your tour band! we will help with your child ‘but it is not a convenient location for 6-year-olds. Indeed he will sit nicely behind the stage, while counting the dollars he receives, because there will be who gave him dollars if he wants to sit sweet, until at the end he will come to me while talking ‘look at my father, my money is not very little!’ ”

So each weekend, Welch began to listen to the Bible, a number of his friends helped explain each of the things contained therein, until Welch finally concluded leaving the band that had raised him.

“This decision will certainly make my colleagues angry. Make them confused. I created a decision at a time that was not quite right. We just came out of SONY, and we have not a bit of money, it’s okay to create my own album, but I want to prove to myself that money is not my god “he said. “I said with Jonathan (Davis) and he spoke ‘I do not understand you, we are all happy and able to be like this now because our band is a successful band’ actually I was about to reply ‘Know, a number of years later, when you went partying I alone sitting on the Bus Tour was about to commit suicide! ‘”

Welch also said that in the final days of his separation, he sought to reach his bandmates, but did not respond well. He drained his last day by saying Basis Korn Fieldy, even planning to help him create a new album, which reflects the development of faith in Christ. Fieldy then retreats regularly.

“I asked Fieldy to help make the album I made, but then he did not contact me anymore” said Welch. “I mean, I put on some music material around the last days in the band, a great lesson, but ever since I left Korn I have not heard from Fieldy”

The material of Welch’s solo album is not a Christian music, but he wants his music to complement the music for Korn Fans.

“I adore when Korn helped not a few kids to rise from their aggressiveness, but with the music I made, I want the kids to know that there are more valuable out there” he said “I want to show that there is light at the end of the aisle. there is a better difference than to be aggressive, I want to talk ‘hey nak, come here, let’s jump and be happy’ ”

On February 27, 2005, Welch recited his testimony at a service at the Valley Bible Fellowship. He is not merely a word, he wants to prove his sincerity. And he wants all his fans to understand the big changes in him.

Two months after saying in the Valley Bible Fellowship, Welch came home with a statement of repentance in three prayer events attended by more than 10,000 congregations. And each worship, not a few visitors who have not received Christ, advanced to the altar to accept Jesus as his personal savior.

“Brian has been touched by the living God and he accepted His call” Father Ron Vietti said in the third service.

“Dude, I still want to stand on the stage of the show, but there is something more that makes me want to change” he said “I mean, I want us all to pursue a new life, because that’s how I am now. Spiritual Baby in Christ “
