It's crazy to think that it's been 21 years since Slipknot released their debut self-titled album, and it looks like the band's former drummer Joey Jordison is in the same boat, posting a touching reflective piece to Instagram on its 21st anniversary.

Along with a photo of his double-platinum plaque, Joey had this to say about his time with the band in 1999:

“It’s almost hard to believe how these years have flown by like blast beats. That album was & will always be some of the absolute best memories of my life. There’s nothing out there quite like it, and what it did for all of us & the Metal world.

It made all of our dreams come true, and the overall reaction from the fans almost collapsed venues & stadiums worldwide. We didn’t expect it, but it absolutely exploded! We were so determined, hungry, and ready to take on the world and we did.

We feared no one, and it showed when we took the stage. It was just ‘that’ time. Total mystery it was. Thank you to Monte Conner, Dave Rath, and all at Roadrunner Records… Sophia John, Ross ‘“The King” Robinson & Chuck Johnson. To the fans, you guys made this happen for all of us, and I dedicate this anniversary to YOU!!! Metal Forever. Thank you eternally!Joey Jordison no.1. ????”
