Slipknot have become leaders in metal and are going to be the band to replace greats like Metallica or Slayer as one of the introductory bands for so many young metalheads in the years to come and that’s evident through this adorable impression a young fan is offering of Corey Taylor.
While stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic, the kid’s parent Kris Frost helped put together an outfit mimicking Taylor’s self-titled era mask while the young fan offers up his best impression soundtracked by “Spit It Out.”
The kid’s impression sees him wielding a mic and headbanging along to the track.
The father posted a message in the video’s description showing it’s hit almost a half million views now. He’s also relaying the message of how happy that has made him and his son. “Holy smokes everyone! Yall all have made my son and I have such an incredible day. He is overjoyed at all the comments and shares, as am I!!”
Frost also shared his own musical ventures as he plays in hardcore act Departure.
You can watch the clip below. Hopefully, Taylor catches onto the heartwarming video and it brings as much joy to him as it has everyone else.

Slipknot recently made their Slipknot Unmasked: All Out Life documentary available for free on YouTube.
The documentary features interview and footage shot during their in-studio live session at Maida Vale Studios for BBC 1.
The documentary is offering “A unique and fascinating insight into the career and controversies of one of the most successful and contentious heavy metal bands of all time: Slipknot.”
“The film combines new interviews, backstage access and an exclusive live session from the nine-piece group, performing six career-defining tracks at the legendary Maida Vale Studios in front of an intimate audience. The six tracks, one from each of the band’s albums, transport the group, acknowledged by many as one of the most extreme live acts ever, from their usual arena-sized shows to a uniquely intimate and intense setting. The film highlights the group’s phenomenal 25-year career, revealing how one of the most relentless and intense-sounding groups ever have struggled with drink, drugs, depression and the death of a band member, topped the charts, outsold their peers and picked up a Grammy along the way, whilst staying as bold, fearless and exhilarating as ever.”
