He's a pretty good drummer, though his speed and how he blends different styles is probably how he'll be remembered best. Great chops too, plus his playing (most of it) fits DEP pretty good.
He's also different from most metal drummers in that he really doesn't hit hard at all. I've seen video of him playing and he doesn't even hit as hard as a lot of fusion drummers out there.
