I think his unique drum style really shows on Damnation, Axe couldn't play that, Axe is too traditionally metal.

Lopez never blasted, Axe is one of those drummers whose play style is completely ingrained with it, he is a death drummer.
I agree, I think Lopez's groove is nearly unparalleled, but I think Axe was just trying to impress with his first album with them. I think he too has nice groove but just leaves less space. He has great potential, and if anyone can replace Lopez's place with them it would be him.
