Even 99% of doom is better of with a simpler rawer production. A band like Mar De Grises which 4look4rd mentioned is actually only borderline doom and could as easily be called progressive and even in that genre slick production stiffles the music. Call me old fashioned when it come to the production of metal but I want it raw and with a bite and not pussified teethless poppish.

Same here. There's hardly anything worse, when it comes to metal, than overpolished production.

This is UNBELIEVABLE !!! There are some things U are so accustomed to that they become a part of ur life. And Priest certainly was something like this to me. I just cant imagine Priest ever hanging up their boots !!
But does this mean that they are disbanding permanently

As far as I know, they won't disband. They will only stop touring.

I sure hope I'll be lucky enough to be able to see them on this tour... I can't believe they're hanging it up.
