Here's That Viral 5-Year-Old Slipknot Drummer Performing Before I Forget Dressed As Joey Jordison

Yesterday, the metal world gasped in delight to watch five-year-old Caleb H. enthusiastically air-drumming at a Slipknot show. But Caleb isn't just the subject of a delightful social media video, he's also an avid drummer and Slipknot fan. Now, footage has surfaced of Caleb performing a drum cover of Slipknot's Before I Forget -- while dressed up as former drummer Joey Jordison.

Apparently, Caleb dressed as Joey for Halloween last year, and made this video to show off his love of the famous drummer. What's especially amazing to watch is how poised and ready he is -- you can see him prepared as though he's about to be performing with the Iowan nine-piece themselves -- before launching into an enthused rendition of the track. It's as heartwarming as it is awesome.

Watch Caleb go harder than any of us in the video below:

Right the fuck on.
