I kind of feel like Deathspell Omega have worn out their welcome a bit. I like what I'm hearing but Paracletus, this ain't (yep that's their best album, sue me).

And this is a must-read for the nazi-callers:

Btw, this one is a grower for sure. Raised it from 7 to 8.

People who prioritize morality and politics over aesthetic appreciation will forever be at odds with more extreme art forms.

It's a given that it won't be for all palates, but works expected to conform to moral boundaries and culled of their potential for transgression cannot really be called art.

This is the point that I feel is sadly being lost in much of the contemporary art culture of today, the fact that art is always (ideally, at least) meant to tear down walls as opposed to erecting them and staying within the confines of prevailing social customs and sensitivities. Many artists today that are regarded as "classic" and recognized for their importance, such as William Blake, Poe, the Beats, the Dadaists, etc., were derided and considered as obscene in their time. I'm not saying that metal bands today that flirt with fascist, white supremacist, and Nazi imagery will go down in history as "classic," or even that they receive my support (certainly not), but they are nonetheless staying true to the spirit of transgression at the core of artistry in their own way, so with that in mind, I find it difficult to really point and say "no, you shouldn't be doing that", even if I may personally disagree with the beliefs that drive their work.

I made the horrible mistake of going through this thread today and I just wanted to point out in this argument: fascist/white supremacist imagery or art is not transgressive. It is regressive. It is safe. It plays to stereotypes and ideas that people still believe and that's been gaining popularity recently anyways. It's not anything new or daring, it is safe imagery playing to people who can't be bothered to question their worldview and seek an easy scapegoat for all their problems.

Anyways, to lighten the mood and since you also mentioned tankie bm, here is some I remember:

Also we have some RABM that's been gaining popularity these past few years.
