In the new documentary Loud Krazy Love, Korn's Brian "Head" Welch and his daughter open up about the toll that the guitarist's fame and hard partying took on their relationship and how his decision to walk away from it all (including a $23 million album deal) saved them both. Featuring commentary from Welch's family and Korn bandmates, the film provides several perspectives on the guitarist's controversial decision to leave Korn in 2005 to turn his life toward faith in order to shake his methamphetamine habit and provide stability for his child while she struggled with her own mental health issues, including self-harm and an inability to connect with others.
In the full trailer for the film, archival footage of Korn when they were at the top of their game in the late Nineties and early Aughts is interspersed with images of the guitarist's at-home life. Singer Jonathan Davis recalls the band's wilder days: "I was out there making drinks, chopping lines, rolling joints ..." before trailing into Welch's own observations on his past, stating, "I couldn't stop being bad to my body. I couldn't stop these addictions. I had become an animal."
After screening at several film festival across the country over the past year, Loud Krazy Love will finally reach a wider audience when it's released on Showtime on Friday, December 14th, as part of their "Four Band, Four Nights" series.
