Brian “Head” Welch (KORN) “I Think I’m Traumatized From Trying To Keep Family Together.”

 

Bakersfield native and original Korn guitarist, Brian “Head” Welch is an artist who has undoubtedly battled his fair share of demons. In 2005, his demons, who took shape in the form of overwhelming drug addiction and discontent with road life, caused him to leave the band in search of a savior. Welch took refuge in religion, became baptized, and devoted himself to Jesus Christ. Part of his decision for his abrupt change in life course was to protect his young daughter from the decadent rockstar lifestyle he was part of. During his departure from Korn, Welch focused on other creative outlets including a solo album, ‘Save Me from Myself’ in 2008, and multiple biographical books chronicling his life experiences. In 2012, he re-branded his solo project as Love and Death, under which name he has released an EP the same year entitled ‘Chemicals EP’ and an LP in 2013 called ‘Between Here & Lost.’ In May of 2013, a clean and sober Welch rejoined his former bandmates in Korn and has recorded two albums with the band since his return – ‘Paradigm Shift’ (2013) and ‘The Serenity of Suffering’ (2016).

Yes, today I bring to you an exclusive video premiere of the Indian underground band, WARMARSHAL‘s all new track “This Is War“. Hailing from down south, Hyderabad, the band is a trio and doesn’t shy away from planting that boot on your face, firm. Without much ado, let me introduce you WARMARSHAL, for those who might be unaware of them and think ‘where next to conquer‘, *wink* in your never ending search for uncharted territories.

The intensity, atrocious and the bestial nature of both death metal and war have never failed to amaze fans. Thus, being the reason why there are still a plethora of rising bands that chose to walk along the path that was paved already by the likes of legends such as BOLT THROWERBESTIAL WARLUST etc. WARMARSHAL is no different as well.
