Empyrium's "Turn of the Tides" gets my vote
Varathron's "Untrodden Corners of Hades" seems worthwhile but not essential - but I haven't finished listening to it yet
I know there's something else I can't remember

These are the sort of observations you must draw to listen to a lot of Beethoven's music as well. His works are almost always tied together by something that makes it consistent, yet this element is not always the same. Sometimes his way of transitioning through keys is so intense that it is difficult to determine the MAIN key of a movement. Sometimes this movement doesn't even make use of a main key and the main key is determined by the whole work's other movements of which this singular quasi-keyless movement is part of.

How does an artist conceptualize?

Experience -> Conclusion -> Metaphor -> Melody or rhythm-melody pair

The rest is setup for this and note choice follows those needs, with key as a guide more than a boundary.
