I completely forgot
Lykathea Aflame - Elvenfris (5 / 5) brutal grind stuff
Ghoul is fun, but not really anything apart from pure entertainment.
Belphegor is pretty mediocre, if you want material of theirs which is good in any respect, stick to the first 4 albums.
Kronos I wouldn't call classic, but certainly very solid. Above average for modern death metal.
Akercocke, Hour of Penance and Benighted I'd suggest staying far far away from.
Good points, however Akercocke's "Words Unspoken..." is phenomenal and I'm totally gay for French metal, so I am admittedly a raving Benighted fanboy. Thoughts on the Varberg quartet Anata? Maybe I'm totally lame but I do believe Schalin & Allenmark are one of the more astounding guitar tandems in metal history. I also think that Blood Freak "Multiplex Massacre" is FUCKING awesome.
Then again I'm still stuck in the late 80s... Sabbat (UK), Artillery (DEN), d.r.i., Sepultura (Schizophrenia & BTR), Mercyful Fate, Atheist, Coroner, Cadaver, Death, Forbidden, Massacra, Razor, Overkill
