I've never been able to get into Soilwork, but everything else he's done is mindblowing without a doubt.

He objectively is extremely good.
Also I completely disagree with the comment saying he's playing mechanically. He's one of the very few metal drummers that can actually groove and include real creative dynamics in their playing.
Then again, I can understand the initial comment that he's not visually impressive but to me, that's a moot point.
Considering I play drums, I know a bit. I just don't see anything outside of stamina and technique, I don't think his approach is very special/out of the ordinary than most other extreme metal drummers.

Outside stamina and technique? So you're talking about what he plays and I'm talking about how good he is at what he does which is more important in my book, but yeah...
Not going to convince you anyway, am I?

When I think of great drummers, I think in terms of technique and creativity. Obviously he has the technique, I just don't see anything out of the normal metal drumming. And no, probably not
