Sick sounding M52B28 need help!

Hey guys, this year my car decided to bring me Christmas cheer by sounding terrible and having me worried all holiday... great.

At first I thought it would be the infamous VANOS seals. However, after listening to other videos online, it doesn't sound like what mine does. Maybe I'm using the stethoscope incorrectly?

Here is what it sounds like:

Oil level is fine and I added little more before the 2nd video to see if the noise changed, it didn't. The noise is not temperature dependant and changes with revs

Any advice?
