He is an excellent drummer, Hades Rising by Bloodbath really shows off what he is capable of and I remember there being a really complex solo in I think it was Porcelain Heart. I don't have a problem with Axe, I can just name plenty of other drummers that can do what he does just as well, I can't say the same for Lopez.
