FARMINGTON — One of the co-founders of the GRAMMY award-winning metal band Korn will be speaking about his faith during the 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. church services Sunday at Piñon Hills Community Church.

As Korn was achieving success in the music industry, Brian "Head" Welch's life was in a downward spiral, according to a press release from the church.

In 2005, he had a crippling addiction to crystal meth and, despite efforts to regain control of his life, he found himself powerless to stop the cycle of self-destruction, the press release states.

That was when he turned to Christianity.

Welch left Korn in 2005, citing moral objections to the music. He later rejoined the band in 2013.

He has released several solo albums, including "Save Me From Myself" and "Between Here and Lost." He has also written books, including an autobiography about his life before and after Korn.
