Saying 'ah its all speed n double bass n shit, anyone can do that' is a perfectly reasonable answer to the question of why death metal drummers don't get the 'recognition' they 'deserve'. It doesn't mean it's right, it shows the reason someone would not give 'deserved recognition' to death metal drummers and thus provides an answer to the original question.

As a side note, death metal fans do tend to put a large premium on technicality and in the drumming department that usually comes out as speed. They also tend to care more about gear and other such 'serious' practical aspects to music than most other "underground" music fans.
