Carnifex Cover Korn’s “Dead Bodies Everywhere”

Carnifex have released a cover of Korn‘s “Dead Bodies Everywhere.“ The band said the following about that:

Watch Teens Cover Korn’s “Freak On A Leash” For New Tribute Album “Children Of The Korn”

The O’Keefe Music Foundation have shared footage of teenagers performing a cover of Korn’s “Freak On A Leash.” The track will appear on a new tribute album titled “Children Of The Korn.” The foundation commented:

“Here it is, OMF’s first Korn cover! The students have been suggesting Korn songs for years and the stars have aligned. It’s gonna take years and thousands of hours of practice but ultimately the students will be releasing a vinyl record of Korn songs called “Children of the Korn”. Because of the pandemic, OMF had to implement several over the top COVID precautions to keep everyone safe and sound. And until we can book recording studios again, all songs are being recorded in a garage.”

Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch Clarifies Comments He Made Regarding His “Early Fanaticism With Christianity”

As previously reported, Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch recently made headlines after saying that he thinks he “went too far” with his initial obsession with Christianity. Now, the guitarist has taken to social media to clarify his comments.

Welch said the following:

“Some have taken my words out of context, but I do have a tendency to ramble without articulating my heart’s intent clear enough, which is typical when a person with A.D.D. tries to juggle the inflow of dozens of thoughts coming in at once. 😁

Let me shed some more light here: I was trying to address my early fanaticism with Christianity. Do I regret taking some much needed time away from Korn? Not at all. I enjoyed some of the best years of my life with my daughter, making precious memories with her I wouldn’t have been able to make if I would’ve stayed.

But some of the choices I made were reminiscent of a true fanatic: I ripped Jennea out of public school because it was’t a “Christian” school. One day, I left my house with her out of the blue and NEVER returned and I hired someone I barely knew to sell all of our furniture and bring our personal items to AZ; expensive items went missing of course!

I joined a group of Christians in AZ that ended up resembling a cult and the leader squandered all my money away! And finally, I gave my mom “The Book of Christian Martyrs” and told her that was who I wanted to be! These are only a few of the fanatical decisions I made, and they did damage to Jennea, and still effect her negatively in some ways to this day.

What I will never regret though, is giving my entire being to Christ and I will share my story until the day I die. Sharing your story of faith is way different than shoving scripture down people’s throats in a heartless way as I was trying to convey in this interview with our old friend Robb.

Jesus Christ is my whole life’s foundation. When the storms come, AND THEY WILL COME, my life will not crumble because my foundation is very secure. I have found true rest in the depths of my soul. Matthew 11:28; the first scripture that I found–my first scripture tattoo–came true for me in EVERY way. This life I’ve discovered is so real! I’m so glad I’ve never walked away from Christ like many have, AND I NEVER WILL! Take that you overly religious Christian haters 😂🤘”

Korn Announce “Monumental” Livestream Concert

Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch Says He May Have “Went Too Far” With His Initial Obsession With Christianity

During a recent appearance on Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn‘s “No Fuckin’ Regrets With Robb Flynn” podcast, Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch discussed becoming a born-again Christian in 2005. The guitarist says he thinks he initially “went too far” with the religion and that he ended up becoming “obsessed.”

Welch said the following:

“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. But yes, I think I went too far with it. And 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 you saw it on the documentary [‘Loud Krazy Love‘], Jonathan’s [Davis, Korn singer], like, ‘I hate those motherfuckers.’

People can’t stand ’em. And for years, we’ve had those Christians outside of Korn concerts, saying Korn 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 leveled and at peace with myself.”

Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch: “We’re Trying To Come Up With Something Fresh And New For 2021 And Beyond”

During a recent interview with Rock Sound, Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch talked a bit about the band’s current plans. According to him, the group are “trying to come up with something fresh and new for 2021 and beyond.”

Welch said the following:

“We’ve got some big plans coming this year we’re gonna announce. I’ve been flying all over the place and seeing the KORN guys. And we have some really exciting news coming this year. So our fans are gonna be ready to do some cool stuff with us this year.

A lot of stuff has been going on. But, yeah, we’re trying to come up with some unique things. I know a lot of people are gonna come out with new music, because you’re stuck at home, and there’s nothing else to do but write music, so it’s pretty obvious that people are working on music. But we’re coming up with a lot more cool ideas than just music. We’re just really brainstorming about how to do something new and fresh. ‘Cause we’ve been around so long. You’ve got bands like TOOL and SYSTEM OF A DOWN — these other bands that go away. Even DISTURBED was gone for, like five years. BREAKING BENJAMIN was gone four years or something. KORN is always just ‘go, go, go.’ And so we’re really just regrouping and trying to come up with something fresh and new for 2021 and beyond, to just make it exciting again. ‘Cause we’re still excited. And so we wanna make things exciting for our fans and just have a good time. So we’ll be announcing something pretty soon.”
