Thanks. I found a perfect YouTube mix, and discovered Thievery Corporation--those guys are phenomenal. All mixed up with Leonard Cohen, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam members doing classic covers, Daryl Hall (who started singing good stuff after leaving John Oates), the ones I mentioned above, and many others.
Edit: and just for Hugo, the mix includes Reignwolf. Brand new heavy metal... more or less.

This:
Ensiferum - Into Battle

And this:
Ensiferum - Twilight Tavern

aka when Hugo's metal music meets LOTR...this is the kind of heavy metal I'd like the most!

For heavy metal about war, it's hard to beat Sabaton.

Thievery corporation is great. If you like them, maybe you want to check out Kruder & Dorfmeister if you don't know them yet. Or A Guy Called Gerald, especially some of his earlier work (I think his album 'Essence' is among my all time favourites).

The best album of 2016 IMO went number one on the charts everywhere in the English speaking in the world except for the US (where it went number 7.) That's Leonard Cohen's final confession, 'You Want It Darker.' Not to many albums leave me in tears, but that one did--and still does. That guy is a real legend: 60 years of music, right up to his final hour. At age 82, he recorded his last album at home because of multiple back fractures from his final years of touring. He died shortly after its release.

Note to self: Re-acquaint with Thievery Corporation.

(Right now I'm leaning heavily towards Trance, e.g. John 'double-o' Fleming with his Astral Projection remixes, or basically any of Van Buuren's yearmixes...)

@AH-
You might like HAELOS. Nominally dance/electronic. Sort of trance, nice duets. Check the KEXP live show.

Not my usual fare, but that's actually pretty damn good.

I'll say the same. Not my usual niche either. I'm on board with AH on HAELO's quality.

Recently, I am picking up on Trance, which used to be my primary favorite music genre (before late 2012, when I switched my primary favorite genre to heavy metal). Here's one of my all-time favorite trance tracks:
Sophie Sugar Vs Sunlounger - Lost Together (Armin Van Buuren Mash Up)
