Well it all depends how much you are relying on triggers to provide the kick sound if you do a mix between triggers and micing in the kick drum the result is a very nice warm powerful sound if you use the right type of kick trigger sample and micing. It doesn't all have to be loud and clicky just because your using triggers, its just most metal drummers want them this way.
Joey is just going for the loud stick out clicky type of sound which most metal drummers seem to want.
You can do a lot more with triggers if your not looking for the clicky metal type sound.
