This was true the first time I saw them, where they opened with Living Weapon and played it slower than on the record. Totally ruined the performance for me.
The second time around (on this tour), it was much better. He is a very skilled drummer, but I agree that the Waking Into Nightmares drummer was way better, as was the bassist on that album. That album is pretty much the highlight of thrash in the last 20 years.
