Editorial Reviews

Brian Welch better known by his nickname Head, is one of the founding members of KoRn, a multi-platinum, Grammy award winning metal band and a major influence
in the rise of the heavy metal movement. While with KoRn, Head won two Grammy s and sold over 30 million albums to date. Head is a also a successful author and released a book in July 2007 through Harper Collins. The book, also titled Save Me From Myself , spent many weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers List.
The Debut Album, Save Me From Myself , is a testimony to Head s life, as he battled with drug addiction and leaving KoRn. The album features renown musicians such as
Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, Alice Cooper, David Bowie) and Josh Freese ( A Perfect Circle, Evanescence, Nine Inch Nails) and, was mixed by Ralph Patlan and Bob Clearmountain. Save Me From Myself is heavy, compelling and inspirational.

It's 2008, and by now just about everyone in tune with the rock world has heard of Brian "Head" Welch's change of lifestyle nearly three years ago. Welch left his hit band Korn behind because of personal reasons and was able to kick a drug addiction with the help of God and Christianity. He decided to continue with music of his own (with well-traveled Josh Freese on drums). Not quite succumbing to stereotypical Christian style, his songs have intensities ranging from spirituality to anger. They are actually edgier and darker than those of Korn. God had told him to let out his aggression, and that's precisely what he has done in his first solo attempt, Save Me from Myself. His autobiography of the same title is worth reading bearing in mind it came to fruition first and this album is a soundtrack of sorts, much like Nikki Sixx's Heroin Diaries. Reading the book and then listening to the music will provide a better understanding of the album's messages.

Save Me from Myself isn't preachy, though. It's a collection of stories and messages with regards to Welch's interactions with others and personal thoughts and habits. This might be an album that takes a few spins to truly appreciate, but even not having read the book it easily remains enjoyable. The layers of programming make a thorough sound and mesh well with the guitars, obviously Welch's bread and butter. Songs such as "Flush," "Re-Bel," and "Save Me from Myself" center on negativities like drugs, alcoholism, and depression. Songs such as "Die Religion Die," "Adonai," and "Washed by Blood" center on religion and Christianity.

Too many listeners discredit and discount artists from the metal genre. You'll never see a nu-metal track nominated for an Oscar, and it's unlikely that you'll see an album win a Grammy for Album of the Year, but "Save Me From Myself" is proof that you can't just replace a guitarist in a successful band and expect the quality to remain consistent. There has been a definite letdown with Korn's last two albums, and while the remaining members have done a decent job with their own individual skill set, there's a reason why Korn was so amazing before Head left. His contribution cannot be overlooked, and his first solo album is proof that he has a lot left to offer.

No one will confuse these lyrics with pure poetry, but they're nothing to be ashamed of either. Head's message is positive and to the point yet he avoids being preachy. You won't feel like running outside and hugging a tree yet you'll be intrigued just enough to want more.

It's the music that makes a difference. These days it's far too simple to sound like everyone else, yet Head finds ways to express his thoughts in unique ways. This is the element now lacking from the efforts of his former colleagues, and it demonstrates how important it is to run on all five cylinders. Sure, we'd all love to heard JD belt out these lyrics, but that was then and this is now. I rate an album by how long it remains in the must-play rotation, and so far, this has withstood the test of time.

I was worried about this project. I applauded Head's bravery in publicly announcing his salvation and quitting Korn and embarking on a solo career, but honestly how could his little ship compare to Korn's battlecruiser? I happily discovered not only were my fears unfounded, but this album out-Korn's Korn entire post-Issues catalog.

The sound is decidedly nu-metal, which in this day of blastbeats and neo-shredders can sound a bit dated and bland. However, I grew up in the Korn Reich and hearing the perfect realization of Korn's sonic dream is like coming home to Mom's country cooking after a long journey abroad. In fact, the only complaint is it might be too similar to Korn, but Head shows that he was the core of their sound and he isn't stealing from anyone since it's his to begin with. Rumbling, ultra-low guitars, demented lullaby-ish hooks, melancholy atmosphere, moaned, whispered, sung, growled, screamed vocals- it's all here. Head has his own vocal style but sometimes he sounds eerily close to Davis' creepy delivery. These songs, while powerful and thunderous, almost beg for Davis' vocals and Munky's bouncing bass-percussion, but we'll wait for them to get saved another day :-). The songs range from bleak, heavily-industrialized nu-doom to seething mosh-anthems. "Die Religion Die," despite it's cheesy title, boils with venom and rage (particularly in the obligatory breakdown with "DIIIEEE! DIE! DIE!" Honestly, is there any English word that is more metal?) The entire album is bathed in atmospherics, utilizing synths, children's choruses, and orchestration.

The lyrics are intensely personal and at time simplistic, but you can tell instantly that this is an album from the heart.

It seems to have walked right out the door behind this guy. Any Korn fans from the Follow the Leader/Issues era and prior will definitely hear some familiar sounds in this one. Seems that Head was bringing a great deal of the driving Korn sound that I am finding so hard to put a label on. Something about the melody me thinks. Anyways, I'm not a Christian or anything but I always liked this guy from his drug-fueled heretic era (ah, the good ol' days), so I decided it was worth checking out. And it was. It's not the most memorable album ever but I can say without a doubt it's my all-time favorite finding Jesus related album. Most of it isn't too preachy, just a few songs I heard that really talk about God, but it's definitely one of those "I'm so happy I found myself" kind of albums. Anyways, if talk of Judeo-Christian beliefs makes your ears bleed, you'll want to avoid this one, but if you're a grown-up person that can handle ideas diverse from your own, it's worth checking out for free. And if you're real keen on Jesus, this one will rock your socks off.

sounds MORE like KORN than korn!!
Honestly I have to say the opposite. I didn't like the last two Korn CD's as much as their earlier Albums. And Head's SMFM was better than See you on the otherside or Korns untitled CD.
