Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch has revealed he believes he “went too far” with Christianity after joining the religion back in 2005.
“The crazy thing is I had an experience with something from another dimension. And it wasn’t the religion — going to church and being a good boy — it was, like, I felt something come into my house, and I can’t explain it to this day. But I believe that it was Christ doing something in me. So that was real — that was very real,” he said.
He continued: “But yes, I think I went too far with it. And I got obsessed with it, just like I was obsessed with the drugs. … 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.”
“You saw it on the documentary, Jonathan’s [Davis, Korn frontman] like, ‘I hate those motherfuckers.’ People can’t stand them,” he said.
“For years, we’ve had those Christians outside of Korn concerts, saying Korn’s of the devil, and all this. It’s crazy — it’s a crazy thing. But I’m just glad I got through it. And I’m glad that I am who I am now, and I have a lot of peace and rest for my soul. I feel very levelled and at peace with myself,” he concluded.
