That is killer, worth it for sure.   Unfortunately I have the vacation days but not really the opportunity at work to take them right now.    I literally would book it the night before otherwise, who cares if only the expensive cabins are left (I looked).

That is a good site, MCA.  I knew about the Angry Metal Guy, but not this one.   I guess I would say I qualify as a metal-fi guy.   I really am pleased when metal groups pay attention to the production quality.   

I am a fan of Sam Dunn and have been watching all the videos on youtube from Banger including his reviews and top 10 lists.    Really great stuff there and I happen to have a pretty big overlap with Sam Dunn's taste.  When he threw up Faith No More's Sol Invictus up on the top 10 of 2015 I was really shocked and impressed (Huge FNM fan here).   If he recommends something now that I don't really know too well I pay attention.   I am trying to warm up to Abbath, but perhaps I am not such a fan of black metal as he is, it's entertaining but doesn't really hook me.

That said, on the episode of the top 10 of the first half of 2016, he brings in an editor of another Canadian metal rag who likes his old skool death.  A number of times they put down the production quality as being too clean, wanting it edgier.  I wished people like that would invest in a compressor and do it themselves and leave the master alone.

Been listening to Devin Townsend Project - Transcendence.  It might be the only ethereal and uplifting metal album I can think of.  Really puts you in a calm and happy mood, which is unusual for metal.   Clean vocals too.

Finally got around to DTP's Transcendence.  Must say, has some super cool metal elements that gets a grip and keeps hold.   Might lack that metal darkness but makes up for it in a "spiritual" sense of fullness and grandeur.   Great texture too on the drums.  Damn good work.

My first taste of DTP  live work.  Impressive, indeed.  Then add vocal Anneke van Giersbergen.  A luxurious addition.   In total shock not knowing about this band.  The beauty and the spirit of this thread works again.

Yes Sir.  My new top Black Metal Band.  Pounding and atmospheric.  With the right elements in chorus, this genre can be incredibly satisfying.
