Excellent coordination, independence and speed, of course. There's something "there" (when he touches the tom-toms) that reminds me of Mr. George Kollias when playing some Death Metal. The typical tom-tom xtreme metal way is there. And just at 14. Amazing. Not the best drummer ever but very, VERY good for the age. I can remember Thomas Lang having a similar "tom-tom passing" technique (but even better developed, imo).

His double-bass coordination and speed are only matched by the BEST (of course, when it comes to the xtreme metal genre alone, not in general) xtreme metal players. Names like Kollias, Roddy, Sandoval and Hellhammer come directly to mind.
