Probably be shot, but Dissection. That's still a few time a weeker around here.
Other than that? Watain? DSO?

There's something about that youthful blind enthusiasm that means bands seem to wain a bit once they get into their mid 20's and beyond...or maybe that's us (the audience?)

Adorior definetly!! Like Cutting the Sleeping is a lifeless piece of shit, Author of Incest is the perfect Black/Thrash album: Birth of Disease, Hater of Fucking Humans, Ritualised Combat, Author of Incest, Conjuring Malignant Evil; those riffs are top notch!!, and besides that, this album is the perfect example of how "Modern Production" can works perfectly when it's done in the right way.

Marduk, definitely. Band has been getting better & better since Legion left, though "Those..", "Opus.." and "Heaven.." are exceptional albums as well.

Antaeus, though I love CYFAWS, Blood Libels is definitely their best album.

I'd add Aosoth, as well. First 2 albums are good but III crushes everything.

Primordial
Secrets of the Moon (love their last album)
Inquisition

There are a bunch of bands who were good when they started but released their masterpiece after a few albums. They didn't necessarily get "better", they just refined their style and musicianship. It seems like a natural evolution.

THIS. I started getting into Darkthrone when FOAD came out and they have only gotten better since then IMO.

I love everything Brocas Helm has done, but Defender Of The Crown is the best thing they've done or will ever do i think.

Absu, i only started getting into them when their s/t album came out and its been my favorite even after listening to their back catalog.

Nifehleim - Envoy Of Lucifer is a GENIUS album! Not to say the rest of their discography is bad in any way though.

Here's a few more bands that i think got better:

Riot - Thundersteel
Stormwarrior - Heading North
Slough Feg - Traveller(Still love everything they've done)
Gravedigger - Excalibur

I never listened to a Darkthrone record after Panzerfaust. Not that i think their shit by any means, but that album didnt really do anything for me, and i wasn't inclined to check them out any further.

Deathspell Omega definitly improved from the mundane to the exceptional. Again, im not a big fan, they have a habit of sounding like Dillinger Escape Plan at times, but i have to give credit where it's due.

Graveland is a hard one. certian old albums are absolute classics, but then again, some newer ones are brilliant. I think Rob is one of the few who really worked from nothing to a very distinctive style. I can't think of anyone who writes like him. His themes may line up with Heathen metal or whatever, but the music is still in my opinion very much what black metal can sound like after playing it straight for 20 years.

Absurd. I liked old Absurd when i was 16. and I like new Absurd now that im 30 something. win win.

I also think Akitsa is much better now with his latest full length then any of his prior recordings. He was never bad, but now his songs really stand out and even get stuck in your head. not an easy feat.

Check out the one that came out after Panzerfaust. Ravishing Grimness. Seriously fucking kills!

Only Heatwork is real? Heartwork is where they began to sound like Arch Enemy. I personally prefer Reek and Symphonies but if you think Heartwork is better than Necroticism there's something wrong with you.

Total Death came after Panzerfaust, not Ravishing Grimness (although yes, Ravishing Grimness is great)

i hate it when bands start sounding like bands that don't exist at that point in time.

necroticism and heartwork here, but you won't find any swansong.

You're thinking of Total Death, not Ravishing Grimness.

Of the "modern era" of Darkthrone, I would definitely say I like Hate Them and Circle The Wagons the most.

Needs me a presidential pardon for that opinion.
