I actually really enjoyed Anders Nordin's classical rhythms from the first two albums. He is a really underrated drummer. He also played the piano for the song "Silhouette". I think he is a really talented musician.

Hah, i'm really alone with Nordin

I voted for him too, I thought his drum performance on Orchid and Morningrise was awesome.

Lopez is a great drummer, his performance of Baying of The Hounds is spectacular.

Lopez is great, really gets the feel for the song without spamming double bass like most metal drummers, but Nordin needs more than 2 votes. He has jazz influences that fitted Opeth's early style very well; just listen to the outro of Nectar! And he also plays a wicked piano solo on Orchid.

I vote for Axenrot, he is one hell of a drummer!
