    I have been out of the metal production game for a while, working mostly on rock music. What are some really kickass sounding albums that have been on your headphones recently? Any/all subgenres

    For glossy stuff, IMO:

    Unearth - Darkness in the Light
    The Acacia Strain - Wormwood
    The last 3 Amon Amarth records

    Natural sounding stuff:

    Deafheaven - Sunbather
    Every Time I Die - From Parts Unknown
    Norma Jean - Wrongdoers

    Some of my favourites since 2010, some of these don't seem to get a huge amount of recognition and some of them I have no idea who actually mixed them. This is purely my view on how good they sound regardless of if I like the music:

    August Burns Red - Rescue And Restore
    Between The Buried And Me - The Parallax II: Future Sequence
    Born Of Osiris - Tomorrow We Die Alive
    Dream Theater - Dream Theater
    Enslaved - RIITIIR
    Machine Head - Unto The Locust (haven't heard Bloodstone yet)
    Monuments - The Amanuensis
    Northlane - Singularity
    Periphery - Periphery II
    Protest The Hero - Volition
    Tesseract - Altered State
    Testament - Dark Roots Of Earth

    I'd throw Juggernaut in there too, but that'd be bias.

    I usually reference check against my own mixes these days but there are some productions I really like!

    Chimaira - Chimaira Tight as hell!
    Killswitch Engage - Disarm the Decent Very dynamic and some killer vocal production!
    Confession - The long way home Fredman/Henke at it's best. just a compact wall of sound with some crazy good lowend!

    I always find myself liking Sneap productions, where some top engineers tend to slack off after they reached their peak Sneap always seems to be pusing it. Getting better every year! Colin Richardson is also a favorite of mine. Very in your face and always crazy good drums and guitars!

    Is this one of your productions? Would love a link to something!

    Keep em coming, this is great stuff. I had no idea there was a new Carcass album.

    Seems like these weren't the most popular production wise here, but I enjoyed the mix on Unearth Watchers of Rule, and Sylosis Dormant Heart. A bit different maybe, but these are some fantastic mixes in my ears.

    Kreator Phantom Antichrist as well.
