Last year it was revealed that a documentary on seminal nu-metal act, Korn, was in the works. The film, Loud Krazy Love, focuses on guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch.
The film explores Welch’s struggle with addiction, specifically methamphetamines, and his tumultuous relationship with daughter Jennea. It will follow his journey from rockstar to born again Christian. “Far beyond a rock documentary, this fearless coming-of-age story grapples with teenage depression, the quest for identity, and the hope of a father willing to do anything for the one he loves.”
The documentary originally premiered on December 14th on Showtime. Now, it’s finally making its way to Australia. The documentary is set to make its national debut on May 15th. It will be shown at Event Cinemas’ all around the country. Click here to buy tickets. Participating cinemas below.

Watch: Loud Krazy Love – Official Trailer
Earlier this year saw another high-budget Korn production rise from the ashes, A Star Is Korn. A short film that was the brainchild of comedians Anna Salinas & Heather Alarcón Higginbotham.
The comic duo reimagined the trailer for Oscar-winning film A Star Is Born, but instead of following the lives of fictional character Ally and Jackson, it tells the story of the rise of Korn’s Jonathan Davis.
It’s the most gorgeous piece of cinema we’ve ever seen. Personally, I believe it should be preserved by the National Film Registry for it’s cultural, historical and aesthetic contributions to film. Read more about it now.
