Well, good list, very diverse, which is good. Some bands still I need to check. I listened yesterday Varathron and it was very similar to old Rotting Christ, sounded old school. I would recommend Abigor "Nachthymnen", Limbonic Art "In Abhorrence Dementia" and Weakling "Dead as Dreams". These are all classics and very unique albums.
