Metal And Spring Fever

Rec me some metal that's not TOO dark... it's 60ºF out here today after 2 months of dreary cold misery. I want something a little lighter. Folk is okay, but I'm leaning more towards atmospheric metal with some use of major tonality or something, I don't know. No speed metal or anything like that. Here are some things I enjoy to give you a rough idea.
1Wolves In The Throne Room
Black Cascade

Might sound odd, but basically this album isn't all that "dark" by my
standards. It isn't by the band's standards either, really. There are
alternating moments of darkness and light in this album. Some of the
melodies are pretty uplifting sounding IMO.
The White EP

Not exactly metal. But you know what I mean...
Souvenirs d'un autre Monde

The lyrics of Printemps Emeraude sum what I'm looking for up. Niege is
pretty much the go to guy for metal that conjures happy feelings, but surely
he isn't the only one.
4Altoriu Seseliai
Margi Sakalai

A pretty dark album at times, but all of the nature sound interludes and
songs like "Gelsvas Menuo III" are just so heavenly that they make the
entire album feel lighter. This is a gem of an album by the way and if you
haven't heard it and like black metal, please give it a listen.

Amorphis are masters of upbeat metal tracks that aren't cheesy (usually),
and this album is probably the best example of that.
