In my opinion, the greatest album of all time. There are no flaws in this album. If you like metal and don't mind screaming vocals then go buy it or download it or borrow it...WHATEVER, JUST GO, NOW! RIP CHUCK.
Actually, if there's any album that comes close to 'Above The Weeping World' it's probably this one. This album does have a significantly different sound however. It's still melodic death metal but with a more modern and progressive approach and clean vocals. The fusion of growls and clean vocals is probably the best vocal performance in metal (in my opinion)
Some might cling over whether the Deftones are a metal band or but they are definitely not a nu metal band so lets just agree to either disagree or call them an experimental metal band and nod at the fact that White Pony is fucking awesome.
I'm glad to see that you have Shogun. Its way underrated and a lot of people refuse to like it just for the shear fact that its "Trivium". But its a great CD, much better then Ascendancy and miles beyond The Crusade
