If a handbook titled Metal Parenting 101 was to exist, the parents of this young sprout would have obviously rinsed it from cover to cover, as, clearly, they've raised their child right.

In a new viral video uploaded onto Facebook, a child, identity unknown, can be seen giving their best Corey Taylor impression while energetically stomping around their living room to Slipknot's 2008 colossal hit Psychosocial.

Not only are the kid's musical tastes elite – they know pretty much every word to the song and deliver them with well-articulated, furious precision – but they've got a pretty ace wardrobe, too. Sporting a bloody clown t-shirt, half a shaved head, a faux tattoo sleeve and pierced ears, the metal whippersnapper already looks like a metal God in the making. 

Commenters on the video are just as enthralled by Mini Corey as us it seems, with one user offering their kudos to his parents and writing: "Big shout out to the parents of this lil feller. Not only are they giving him a positive outlet, if he keeps this up he’s def going places. Impressive kiddo". Another speculates about the child's promising future in the music industry, stating "We need to get this kid to a stage as soon as he's old enough and ready...make a dream come true...I'd love to see this kid in a band...just the energy and will to do something he's good at".

We would personally like to know what Corey Taylor thinks about this.
