It's been a big year for metalcore heroes The Callous Daoboys, their second album Celebrity Therapist opening the gates for legions of new fans to fall in love with their math-flavoured brand of eccentric hyperactivity, also landing them a spot in the official Hammer albums of the year list. 

As it turns out, that doesn't just stretch to their original musical output. Last weekend the band played The Rock Box in San Antonio, Texas, and decided to break out an ultra cheesy eurodance version of Slipknot classic Psychosocial. And God help us, but it's pretty brilliant. 

Set to a bouncy, incessantly whooping dance backing track, Corey Taylor has never sounded more bilious, suggesting maybe this is the all-star team-up we never knew we needed. 

Watch the video below:

The Callous Daoboys recently announced they will make their UK debut at this year's Radar Festival in July, playing alongside the likes of Haken, Periphery and Sleep Token.
