Although a great deal of music fans couldn't be happier about the return of axeman Brian 'Head' Welch
to the ranks of nu metal veterans Korn
, there is always a certain group disapproving his work with the band.
As Head himself revealed in his Loudwire
column, such a group consists of several Christians who had bashed Korn for not "honoring the God"
with their music.
"I was getting some crap from a few Christians that were commenting online that Korn weren't 'honoring The Lord' in their music,"
the guitarist said. "There was a time when I didn't think God would be very into Korn's music and lifestyle, but I've learned that He loves everyone where they're at. And I know God loves Korn's music because it's passionate and very honest."
Head continued by focusing on the haters, saying, "I just trip out on these people that have the balls to judge people so harshly with their negative, hateful attitudes. It's crazy how bold people are online. Not one person has come with their negative attitudes to my face. Luckily, most of the Christians are cool and 'get it.' I only have to deal with a small number of knuckleheads."
In the rest of his column, the axeman gave fans a bit more of a thorough insight of what the band's been up to lately, expressing once again his excitement for returning to Korn ranks. "It was like I never left, man,"
he said. "Everything just felt so natural."
The guitarist wrapped it up with nothing short of a positive attitude, saying, "Life just keeps changing, and though it's tough at times, the journey is totally meaningful nowadays and worth every tear. And the good times always outweigh the bad - that's for sure!"
The upcoming Korn studio effort, "The Paradigm Shift
," is set to drop on October 1
as the 11th record in the group's opus and the first one to feature Welch handling the axeman duties since 2003's "Take a Look in the Mirror
